Difficult Interview

Associate Research Analyst Interview

Associate Research Analyst
Waltham, MA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Affinnova.

Interview Details – Applied online on a whim while looking for other similar positions (Forrester, GWfK, Nielsen, etc.). The process started about 5 days later when someone reached out to me to arrange a Skype interview. Two days later I was brought in for 3 one-hour interviews with two analysts and the hiring manager. Four days later, I was brought in for 2 one-hour interviews with two research directors and a 90 minute interview with two analysts. After sometime (I had an abroad commitment of 2 weeks for a personal) I was asked to come in for a 1.5-2 hour conversation with the CEO. A day later I was told to expect an offer letter, which I signed.

The entire process, although long, was very positive. I genuinely found myself excited to work with all of the people that I had interviewed with throughout and it seems that company is undergoing a paradigm shift in how it hires.

Interview Question – Towards the end of the interview process, there was a shift more towards my past, like "What was your first job in high school?" past. That was interesting to me.   Answer Question

Associate Analyst Interview

Associate Analyst
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Affinnova in March 2014.

Interview Details – I applied to Affinnova through my college career center. I got an email within a week to schedule a phone interview. They got back less than a week after the first phone call to invite me to Chicago for a second round in-office interview. The office has a great location (Willis Tower) and the people are quite warm. Gave us an IQ test for the first hour, followed by three 45-minute back-to-back interviews with Senior Analysts. The session ended with a brief one-on-one with a current AA. All in all, it was a good experience

Interview Question – Unexpected: why did you choose your childhood hobby and how did that help you in your college career?   Answer Question
