    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at RB in April 2016.

    Interview

    Interview as OK. Some interviewers are nice, but some are not. You would need to give a presentation around a topic. They will assign a topic for you. So don't worry, just prepare and relax.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at RB in November 2015.

    Interview

    Started with an online aptitude test. Basic math problems but be sure to do a couple of practice rounds first. Afterwards I was selected for a 30 minute Skype interview - all behavioral except for a question about Cash Flows & Net Income. Heard back about a second round interview exactly 2 weeks later and had it 2 weeks after that. Another 30-45 minute Skype interview which consisted mostly of a resume rundown and a few behavioral questions. Was asked a question about the company's stock price; knowing some basic news info about RB definitely helped me there. Heard back a week and a half later about the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RB (Saint Peters, MO) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I was approached by a recruiter for this position. Two interviews via skype with RB before offer was received. The first interview went very well and we scheduled the second. The second call did not go well and i was frankly surprised to receive an offer. It was explained to me that the second interview was tactic driven to test the seriousness of the candidate. Declined offer; that didn't sit well with me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at RB in November 2015.

    Interview

    Really brief Skype interview, I couldn't believe how easy it was and that I got an offer just from the one interview where I only talked to one person. I think I just talked for less than thirty minutes and ended up getting the offer.

    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at RB (Parsippany, NJ).

    Interview

    Online math test; two 1-1 in-person first round interviews with (a) someone from HR and (b) senior brand manager; then their "Graduate Assessment Day" which included an individual written case, a group case to present to managers, a negotiation simulation with part of a team, and a 1-1 behavioral interview.

    The negotiation simulation was peculiar - you're put into groups of 4 people and you have to rank order some characteristics on your own only to then as a group decide the "ultimate ranking" for your team. There are about 3 RB employees sitting in the room taking notes on you, so it's kind of an odd activity. With the group case, again there are about 3 RB employees who take notes on you while you prep for your group presentation and watch everything you do. I think the written case and behavioral interview aspects are pretty typical and straightforward.

    I was not a fan of this process, however, I will say that I think the interview process is very true to who RB is as a company. RB knows what it stands for and what it wants in employees, so if you like the interview experience then I think RB is a great fit for you (or if you're like me, this whole process solidifies that RB is not the right culture). It's not good or bad - it just is.

    Interview Questions

    • Why RB? (During the graduate day, a lot of questions I felt were more about proving my interest rather than demonstrating my knowledge or skills)   Answer Question
