    Research Associate Interview

    Interview Details

    Initial Communication was great, but faded as the interview process got longer. The process was long - 1 phone interview with the HR Recruiter. This recruiter then becomes your contact for the rest of the process. I then had 2 separate phone interviews with different vice presidents, and one 4-hour in person interview. Also had to take a skills test during the in-person interview.

    Interview Questions
    • A series of "either/or" questions that don't really have right or wrong answers. IE: "do you prefer working alone or in groups?" When I tried to say I can do both, the interviewer told me to pick one.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I got an email from a recruiter saying she wanted to connect and talk about my background because she thought I was a good fit. 30 minutes prior to the interview, she vowed rescheduled and I never set a date. I had to call another recruiter and speak with her. She told me she would contact me within a few days to speak with a hiring manager, and after 3 emails and a phone call on my behalf, I never heard back.

    The hiring process was pretty detailed, but moved along quickly. I worked with an internal recruiter, who helped prep me for my interviews. I had 2 phone interviews, an in person with my direct manager, and 2 members of the team. I was then called back in to conduct a presentation in front of a panel, with Q&A at the end. The process was smooth, the day after the presentation, I received the offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Forrester Research.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through the corporate website, and about a week later the recruiter emailed me in regards to a phone interview. The interview was scheduled for a Friday afternoon and lasted about 30 minutes. She was very kind, open, and engaging. At the end of the interview, she thought it would be a good idea to speak with the hiring manger which was scheduled for the following Tuesday. The hiring manager again was very nice, although she was about 15 mins late for the call. She had a very direct approach in asking questions, she also fed off the responses I provided.
