    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Centro (Chicago, IL (US)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email back from a recruiter within the hour and had a short phone screen with that recruiter a couple of days later. The day of the phone screen they emailed asking me to set up a technical phone interview which I did the following week The day after the technical phone interview they offered to fly me in for an on-site interview which I schedule for the following week. The on-site interview took a few hours and consisted of technical challenges as well as the standard interview questions. I was impressed with their promptness throughout this process.

    Strategist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Centro.

    Interview

    Was reached out to by an internal recruiter via LinkedIn. Had a phone interview with that recruiter and two phone interviews with two senior team members. Then had an in person interview with those same two team members. The company was swift at scheduling and responding, but completely ghosted me after the in person interview. I followed up twice, but never got any type of response. This was disappointing after 4 interviews that I thought went well. I would have been more satisfied with a rejection letter.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Centro.

    Interview

    I applied through their website and got a pretty quick response back. The first phone interview was through their HR department. They asked about my background and what I was looking for in a new position. After about 15 minutes with that person they said they would give my information from the interview to the Accounting Manager and if she wanted to speak with me they would be in contact. They were very prompt at getting back to me and I set up the second interview for later that week. The next interview talked a little more in depth about my background and experience as well as my ability to commute and other job requirements. They were very receptive to any questions I had for them about the position and I thought the interview went quite well. Although I didn't receive an offer, I would still rate it as a good interview and a good overall experience with both people I spoke with.

    Interview Questions

    • It wasn't exactly the most difficult, but I did not expect the HR rep that I first spoke with to ask me any technical questions so I was a little caught off guard but it was just a basic accounting question about journal entries. Nothing too difficult was asked.   Answer Question

    Interview

    HR contacted me through email. I tried to set up a phone call interview. But she never replied. I followed up 2 times in 2 weeks. One week after the second follow-up, she told me the position was in final stage... Just make sure they mean it when they reach out for a interview...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Centro.

    Interview

    This is no doubt a fantastic company to work for but they have, by far, the most slow-responding, inconsiderate HR team I have ever interacted with. Emails take days or weeks to receive answers to, and the general interview timeline is very lengthy (3-4 weeks between each step). Highly suggest continuing to look for other opportunities while interviewing here, as you will likely spend 2-3 months stuck in their process. My interviews were all behavioral, and followed a similar sequence to others (2 phone screens, 1 in-person interview with hiring manager, then panel interview with 4-5 others). Know your resume inside and out.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Centro (Raleigh, NC (US)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Had one easy phone interview with the manager who mainly just asked about what I was looking for in an internship and my availability. Was invited to interview in-office in Raleigh and spoke to two managers. It was very brief and I didn't encounter any very difficult questions. Standard intern/entry level interview stuff.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Centro.

    Interview

    After I submitted my application I was given a phone interview on a Wednesday. They said I should expect to hear back by the end of the week, or early next week. I didn't hear back from them so I sent a follow-up email on Wednesday of the week following my phone interview. They never responded. They completely ghosted me.

    Campaign Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA (US)
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Centro (Atlanta, GA (US)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Introduced to the opportunity by a 3rd party recruiter. Phone screen with HR, then national department director, then hiring manager, then panel in-person interview. I did the initial phone screens with HR and the national department manager within a week and then they decided to table this position (and all hiring company wide) for about 6 weeks. Once the process proceeded, I had a phone call with the hiring manager and then an in person interview with the hiring manager and a few staff members within ten days. The interview questions themselves weren't very difficult, there were questions on background and a few technical questions as well.

    I thought I knocked it out of the park and got along really well with the staff that I interviewed with and impulsively checked my e-mail and phone messages for the next few days expecting an offer. After about a week I resigned myself to the fact that it was unlikely to happen and when I got a call a couple of weeks later confirming that they had moved on with another candidate, I wasn't surprised. Although, the hiring manager told me it was roughly 6 months from his last interview to when they offered him a position, so I guess you never know with these guys.
