    Contractor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo in August 2013.

    Interview

    Talent Manager was super charming and did a great job of selling the position/company. She also provided a very clear picture of what I'd be walking into. The rest of the interview panel had a good understanding of my background without me having to tell too much - it was clear they knew the industry/function well.

    Associate Account Executive Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo (Boston, MA (US)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Initially worked my network to get on the phone with a current AE in the company who then referred me to HR.

    The interview process consisted of 3 interviews and one in-person presentation. The first 3 interviews were pretty straight forward. First, HR reached out to me for about a 30 minute phone call and I was then scheduled for two more interviews about a week later with managers within the sales department. The interviews were back-to-back and both lasted 30 minutes. Again, these interviews were pretty straightforward and they asked the usual questions like why sales, what motivates me, strengths/weaknesses, etc...Ideally I would have liked about 10-15 more minutes more to be able to ask more questions about the company as the time ended up being a bit cramped.

    About a day after the phone interviews with the sales managers, HR notified me that I was invited to come up to Boston for an in-person sales presentation. I was given documents that covered Criteo's product and was given a basic outline of the presentation they wanted me to give. I had about 2 weeks to prepare and personally spent a lot of time learning the product from the documents they gave me, as well as Criteo's annual report, and other online resources. I gave about a 30 minutes presentation to 3 interviewers where I essentially covered the basics of the product and consulted with them as if they were a client working currently working with a competitor. The prep work paid off and I felt very confident during the entire process.

    I personally very much enjoyed the interview process as it showed me 1) the product is great and I would love to sell it, and 2) the other people that the company hires will also be hard-working and resourceful. I received a job offer the next day and took it over two other competing offers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo (Boston, MA (US)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    As a May 2018 college graduate, I spent much of my last semester in school looking for post-grad opportunities. I had various interviews for a number of different role types and companies, and no interview process was as efficient, enjoyable, or transparent as that of Criteo. Within two days of sending in my resume through a fellow classmate of mine in the AAE role, I received an invitation for a phone screening with a recruiter, and by the end of the day that we spoke, I was invited for another round of phone interviews with two sales managers. These conversations were mainly behavioral based, and geared towards learning more about my interest in sales. I was contacted by the recruiter shortly after my second phone interview explaining the final round (a sales pitch), and provided with resources to prepare. They like to give the candidates a week in advance to prepare, because the final pitch is quite extensive. However, my recruiter worked with me throughout the week answering all of my questions and giving me feedback on my presentation, etc. When I went into the office the next week, everyone from the receptionist, to the employee giving me a tour, to the sales managers I presented to were beyond welcoming, friendly, and helpful throughout the entire process. After my presentation, I spoke candidly with the managers about the culture at Criteo, concerns I had, and my performance on the pitch. On my trip home that day, I received a phone call offering me the position. While there were many factors that contributed to my decision to start my career with Criteo, I was so impressed by the people and the interview process that the choice was easy. They were also fully understanding of the process for me to move to another state to start work, and were flexible on the start date. I am incredibly excited to start my career at Criteo next week, and can't think of any way they could improve the interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo (Boston, MA (US)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Criteo's interview process was fast-paced, engaging, and exciting. The company truly wants to know they are hiring someone who will make an immediate impact and be a solid addition to their team. This is reflected in Criteo's involved interview process, which allows you to demonstrate your abilities and apply yourself in learning about a dynamic industry and company. The amount of time you put into research and preparation for each stage will truly determine your success in this process.

    The first stage is a phone screen with a recruiter, asking general questions about your resume, interest in the company, and interest in sales. Next is a series of 30 minute phone calls with sales directors/managers. These questions make you think on your feet a little bit more and ask you to elaborate on past experience. The last round is an in-person mock sales pitch. This requires about a week of preparation and plenty of resources are provided to make sure you are capable of succeeding. Overall, I was extremely impressed by Criteo's interview process from start to finish. Each person I talked to was knowledgable in their respective area and provided great feedback and transparency.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo (Boston, MA (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Started off with a phone screen with a recruiter. Next had two back to back 30 minute phone interviews with two managers. Final stage was a mock pitch/presentation of the product in front of a director and two managers. Very smooth/fast interview process. My recruiter was very helpful throughout the whole process and gave me plenty of resources for preparation. As long as you prepare for each for stage with 100% effort it won't be bad at all. BE YOURSELF.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Criteo (Boston, MA (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Shortly after applying for this role, a Criteo recruiter reached out for a phone interview. A few days later she then followed up to schedule another over the phone interview with two Account Executives, and then came an in person, mock sales pitch. I had expressed to my recruiter that I had deadlines for other positions and she assured me that their team would let me know their feedback as soon as possible (sometimes even day of). Not only did Criteo keep their word, but everyone in the office also made me feel extremely welcomed and relaxed throughout the interview process. This made the process not only efficient, but also enjoyable.

    There were 4 steps in this process in the following order: a phone screen, an online aptitude test, an in-person interview and an in-person mock sales pitch. Overall, the process was manageable and the person I interviewed with first on the phone screen helped me out throughout the entire process which was a big plus.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Criteo.

    Interview

    I was referred by a current employee.

    I began talking to recruiter in January. Formal interview process began in March. I had a phone interview, took their analytical test, and had an "in person interview" via video conference call due to distance. All interviews went really well, I was highly interested in the position! After video interview I was asked to send my availability to fly to Boston to do a sales pitch.

    I followed up to thank those that interviewed me, asked a few questions, and sent my availability. They gave me a date that I would hear back about when i needed to come to Boston, when I didn't hear on that day I emailed the recruiter I had been working with. When I didn't hear after a few days I emailed again and called the office.

    I never heard from recruiter or anyone else in the company after that.

    Terrible communication and extremely unprofessional!
