    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Centro.

    Interview

    A recruiter from their California office reached out to me on LinkedIn regarding a Data engineer role in Chicago and asked me for a time to have a phone call. I gave a time but he never called. I followed up after couple of days and we scheduled another call. He went over my resume and gave me a brief intro about the company and role and said a recruiter from Chicago will reach out to me regarding next steps. I waited for few days but no one from the company reached out. I followed up again but the recruiter never replied back. I wonder why recruiter wastes their LinkedIn InMail and our time if they never want to hire someone.

    Thank you so much for this feedback and we regret that this was your first experience of Centro! We don’t have any internal recruiting team members in California, so it sounds like an independent recruiting firm may have reached out to you on our behalf. We always try to work with great partners that represent us well, and are saddened to hear this one missed the mark. If you’re still interested in a conversation with our internal team, I know they would love to hear from you. Please feel free to reach out to Eric at eric.bohl@centro.net to connect, or if you have additional feedback around your experience, you can email us at tellusmore@centro.net.

    Accounts Payable Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Centro (Chicago, IL (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Process was about 1 month plus 2-3 weeks. I went through four interviews; two phone screenings, coffee meeting with the accounts payable manager, then met the team. Manager said she highly recommended me, but I guess they met someone they preferred more. I had no accounting experience other than my associates degree. Their response was "they didn't think i'd be a good fit because of my lack of experience" which was something they knew, yet still put me through four interviews. I emailed the recruiter asked if there was anything I could work on or tips; she didn't reply (even though she said "keep in touch"). Lesson learned, regardless of the reviews; it's just another company, and wasn't a very diverse one either.

    Ad Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Centro (Dallas, TX (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process (from first phone interview to in-office interviews) was kind of long, but that was expected since it started and ended around the holidays. Unfortunately, I was not offered the job due to COVID-19 and other internal reasons, but I have to say both the recruiter and the Dallas manager were completely transparent and kept me updated throughout the whole process. Granted, companies aren't obligated to do this much for potential hires, but it was refreshing to come across one that made me feel more like a human and less like chopped liver during these hard time. Also, I thoroughly enjoyed my in office interviews as well. Everyone was super nice and engaging which in turn made it feel less "interviewy". Fingers crossed for an opportunity post pandemic and a huge THANK YOU to everyone I got to meet! ;)

    Big Data Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Centro (San Francisco, CA (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me with this role. I had a phone screen with the VP of Engineering. We talked about my current role, and then she asked me some Spark and SQL related questions. Heard back from the recruiter the next day that they would like me to come onsite. Had 5 rounds of onsite, 45 minutes each. Overall experience of interviewing was good, but I didn't hear back from them for about a week. On asking the recruiter, I found that they'd need some more time as they were interviewing other candidates. Some kind of communication to let me know would have been nice. They made an offer eventually, but I decided to accept another offer I had.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Centro.

    Interview

    The first step was to complete a one-sided video interview. Then, I was invited to the office for an in-person interview. 15 other applicants were also there. They gave us a tour of the office, presentations about the different departments/positions, and fed us lunch. It was unlike any other interview I've done before. As I networked with the other candidates it seemed like I was just as qualified, but most of them had close ties to the company. I figured they ended up pursuing those candidates instead.
