Phone interview followed by in-person process. Met with various project managers/one other research associate who explained what the process was like going forward. All very easy and normal questions that didn't require much preparation -- behavioral and ethical questions.

    Interview

    First the HR Manager screened me over the phone. At the time I was distraught because it had been a month since I was last employed. After passing the phone interview, I was invited in to meet with 2 Research Managers, the Research Director and the Director of Account Management. Within a week, I had an offer.

    Interview

    Phone interview consisted of just going over resume and explaining interest in the company. The in office interview consisted of interviews with multiple senior members of the company. One person walked me through the process of what they do at Coleman research group, asking questions as they explained the process. The others mainly asked about previous experience and interest in the company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Coleman Research (New York, NY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I received a request for a phone interview, which lasted about 20 minutes. I spoke about my background briefly, while my interviewer spoke about Coleman for the majority of the time. Seemed very important that I knew exactly what they do...apparently many do not when they interview. Then I was called in for an in-person interview. I was interviewed by 3 different managers from different subject verticals for about 10-15 minutes each. Overall, not a bad interview. I thought all 3 went well. The next week, I got the request to reach out to my references and then I got the offer the next day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Coleman Research (London, England (UK)) in June 2011.

    Interview

    At the first interview they tell you about the position first and then pretty much just want to know how your past experience relates to the position. I wouldn't say that it's a very challenging interview but from the other reviews it seems like the work is not really challenging neither, more of a fancy telecommunications and headhunting job. The job description on their website is somewhat deceiving, making it look like a proper research position but at the interview they are honest about what the nature of the job is like.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked only a few questions: What do you understand this position to be? What is an expert network? How does your past work experience relate to this position?   Answer Question
