    Anonymous Employee in Rocklin, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Certent (Rocklin, CA) in April 2017.


    Interview process was extremely quick, and communicated well each step of the way. Process involved two assessments that were less than 30 minutes combine to complete. Candidates should not be nervous about assessments, as they are used as one piece of the puzzle and help future employers know what areas to develop in the future. Reception was friendly each time I came in and everyone was on time.
