Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Analytic Partners (New York, NY).

Interview

Phone interview
Basic questions on why you are interested in AP. What do they do? What is an interesting project you have done? Why are you analytical? And he also spent time giving me a intro of AP. The whole process took 15 months mins. The recruiter was a senior analyst. I was expecting an aptitude assessment after the interview, but never received it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Analytic Partners (New York, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through LinkedIn. A couple of weeks later got a 15 minutes phone screening by a Senior Analyst. Then you have to take 1 IQ test and one EQ test. One week later was invited for an in-office interview with three members of the project team. They were very nice and engaging. After that is an interview with a junior HR associate. I was under the impression that this was the final round, but he/she told me that there would be another round.

    Two weeks later I followed up with the AP and told them I have a competing offer elsewhere and asked if they can speed up the process. They declined. When I formally rescinded my application, they changed their mind and arranged for that second round interview. This round the interviewers are more senior (Associate Director to Director Level). I wasn't impressed with the company and their personal image, and they probably saw that. I didn't bother with the thank you follow-up emails.

    As others have wrote before, being interviewed in person by 8 individual person is really time consuming and I thought it was unnecessary.

    Interview

    Applied through the website and was notified a week later for a phone interview. Phone interview went well and lasted about 20 minutes, was told I would be emailed an online test - one aptitude, one personality. About a week after submitting the test, I was notified about coming in for an on-site interview. I spoke to 3 different people plus one person over skype. I thought the interview went very well. Everyone was laid back and friendly.

    Interview

    -Coordinating with the hiring manager was difficult
    -AP got rid of its entry level analyst position and replaced it with an apprenticeship, which isn't nearly as attractive
    -Interviewers weren't very engaging or enthusiastic
    -Overall was an OK experience...wouldn't recommend this company to others

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Analytic Partners (New York, NY) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Got contacted via Email a week after I applied through LinkedIn to set up a phone interview. Normal behavior and motive questions. Then they sent me a online test which took about 30 mins. Got a call in for a on-site interview a week after and were told to wait for the result in two week if they decided to move me forward to the next round. The interview lasted 2. 5 hours and I met three mid-level consultants who asked questions around research experience, interest in the position and teamwork skills. At last, the HR manager came in and told me details of the training and learning opportunity in the company.

If there are 5 on each side how many square inches is the larger cube. The next question was how many square inches is the cube if the outside layer of the cube is removed. They also asked how I would spend my marketing budget if I was a marketing director.

    Pre-interview phone chat with a senior analyst, where standard walk through questions were asked as well as the reasons why you are interested in working for the company. Received an email a week later asking me to go down for an actual interview.

    Interviewed by 3 different people on a 1-1 basis. Situational questions, questions related to job to test your competency and personality questions were asked. Generally really friendly but professional atmosphere.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Analytic Partners in August 2010.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by one of their Analyst. The interview lasted for almost 30 minutes and went really well. Before I could even ask, the interviewer told me himself about the next steps that in the next couple of days I would get a call from their HR. However to my disappointment and surprise I never heard back from either their HR or the interviewer himself.
