There is no non-physical domain that consciousness "goes to". Consciousness is just an emergent property of the brain. Rebuild the brain perfectly and consciousness comes back too.
Would the same personality come back too, or is that 'randomly' made every time the brain 'starts up' again?

Personality is a function of the brain's architecture just the same as everything else. Assuming the rebuild is perfect (not likely, but that's the hypothetical situation here), it should be identical.
