    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Parsippany, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ipsos in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had initial phone interview with HR followed by an in-person interview with 5 people at their office that lasted around 3 hours. Very conversational and easy going, everyone I encountered was friendly. Be prepared to talk all about your interest in market research, data, and how your experiences can relate to the position.

    Research Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Ipsos.

    Interview Details

    Went through a first round phone interview and was called in for a 3 hour long interview in the office with 3 employees and 1 HR rep. Seemed very casual, talked more about the job and asked general questions rather than specific behavioral or experience based. I think they were just looking to see if you fit in well with the company.

    • Not really any tough questions, they talked more than I did   Answer Question

    Senior Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ipsos in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    First a phone screening with an HR rep, then an in-person interview in the format of 2:1. Followed by phone interviews with three more people on the team. Was told there would be a fourth interview had I gotten to that point.

    Never heard another word after the phone interviews. Tried getting in touch with HR and the hiring manager but was ignored. Completely unprofessional, albeit not uncommon.

    Research Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Ipsos.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by an internal recruiter within a few days of applying. Spoke on the phone and had an easy screening interview; didn't hear back for a few weeks and then the recruiter called to schedule an interview with the team. Very informal and went well (met four people who were all very personable and made me feel comfortable). After that, didn't hear anything for almost a month, and then the recruiter contacted me to set up an interview with a VP, which was also pretty informal; I was told they would be making a decision within a week. And then radio silence. When I asked the recruiter (after another month) what happened, I was told they "really liked me" but hadn't made a decision yet and were still interviewing candidates- four months after my initial contact with them.

    Interview Questions
    • Actually there weren't even a lot of questions. They just told me about the position and the team/company and asked about my background and how I saw it fitting the needs of the position.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ipsos in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted a few days later by a recruiter. There was a phone interview with the recruiter within a week. We discussed my background and research experience. A one-on-one interview was scheduled for the following week. The questions were basic, not much about my background or analytical ability. I was told that there would be another interview to meet with a colleague who was unable to participate in the one-on-one interview that day. Last contact was almost 2 months ago and I haven't heard anything about the interview or position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Ipsos.

    Interview Details

    Contacted quickly and set up a day to go in for a full-day interview. The day was great, everyone was friendly. They promised to contact within two weeks, two weeks later they promised to inform who had received a position by the end of the month (June), by the beginning of July they then promised to inform us by the end of summer. Almost two months after the last contact received there has not been any further contact from the company and no news as to a position. Very unprofessional!
