Quantitative Research Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Acumen.

Interview Details

I was initially contacted to analyze a set of data concerning patients grouped in various manners (age, payment method, stay of visit, out patient, etc.) I only had to analyze one sheet worth and information and provide only a single page write up. After this, I had a phone interview with rather basic questions to get to know me, go over my resume, and see if I was interested for the job. We didn't speak about the excel analysis as that was only for the in person interview. Afterward, I received an email stating they didn't want to move forward without an explanation.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Acumen in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initial impression of the office was shock at how unprofessional the interview sessions were. One of the interviewers casually dropped the F bomb 5 minutes into the interview. I'm all for a causal work environment, but this is NOT the first impression you want to make during talent recruiting

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Acumen in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    first a phone interview, then I got invited to onsite. Skills test is quite simple. Then four 1:1 interviews, they talked about the projects they've been working on to see if you're a good fit for the team. Just like other reviews said, be sure to elaborate on your quantitative research experience. As for the company, the employees seem nice and really smart. The whole onsite process took 4.5 hours. It's quite exhausting, so come prepared.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Acumen in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Went in and got a skills test first, some logic, statistics, and probability questions, not too hard if you have taken introductory stats. Then went to three one-on-one interviews from different department / level. The organization doesn't impress me at all because it was flooded with recent grads who are pretty full of themselves (and were even trash-talking in the cafeteria room, absolutely lack professionalism and dress code). Two of the people I interviewed with are supposed to be "managers" who by the looks seem not competent. Don't even bother interviewing simply for the fact that it took them one month to give an interview.

    Interview Details

    It took them at least a month after I sent in my resume for them to contact me for an interview. The interview included a stats test with basic probability questions - if you've studied for the GRE you will likely do well. Then I met with a series of people working on different projects within the company to determine a fit.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Acumen in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the career website, a few days later had a phone interview with 2 research assistants. They were both fairly new employees - were at the company for about a year. One of them sounded super nervous which i found strange. Then had several interview in DC office after taking a 1-hr test. I didn't really prepare for it - it was logic questions and some probability including combinatorics and such which i haven't look at in 10 years. The in person interviews (there were about 5 them) were extremely repetitive. It seemed like they were given a cheat sheet and they were all using it word to word. The environenment was very unprofessional. One of the girls who interviewed my had a very low cut shirt.
