    Collabera has trained and prepared me to be successful as an Account Manager and both the corporate training and help provided by my associates and Sales Manager has been terrific.
    Collabera is always finding ways to help improve communication and setting up numerous contests to help us be successful and supportive along the way.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Collabera (San Diego, CA).


    Came in for a first in person interview, met with the sales manager for about 30 minutes. The next step was a lunch with an account manager and the sales manager, and then I had a call with the regional director. Overall great and thorough process!
