    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Ipsos (Bellevue, WA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back within a couple of weeks. After that, it was a pretty quick turnaround to the final interview process. All four people I interviewed with were very nice, and seemed to have an interest in how I approached problem solving and how I might fit in with the group and perform in the work environment. Overall, it was a good experience.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ipsos (Parsippany, NJ) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Had initial phone interview with HR followed by an in-person interview with 5 people at their office that lasted around 3 hours. Very conversational and easy going, everyone I encountered was friendly. Be prepared to talk all about your interest in market research, data, and how your experiences can relate to the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly conversational and none of those behavioral "tell me about a time when..." questions   Answer Question

    Interview

    Interview process was done remotely (all phone based - no Skype or video conference) as I was relocating to a new city. First step was HR phone screening, followed by a group conference call. On the call I was able to speak to all team members, turned out to be a good team, but would have liked to meet them in person first and had the opportunity to see the office.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ipsos.

    Interview

    Went through a first round phone interview and was called in for a 3 hour long interview in the office with 3 employees and 1 HR rep. Seemed very casual, talked more about the job and asked general questions rather than specific behavioral or experience based. I think they were just looking to see if you fit in well with the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Not really any tough questions, they talked more than I did   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ipsos (New York, NY) in June 2014.

    Interview

    First a phone screening with an HR rep, then an in-person interview in the format of 2:1. Followed by phone interviews with three more people on the team. Was told there would be a fourth interview had I gotten to that point.

    Never heard another word after the phone interviews. Tried getting in touch with HR and the hiring manager but was ignored. Completely unprofessional, albeit not uncommon.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ipsos.

    Interview

    You will be asked to come in for a series of interviews--first with senior management and then with peers or co-workers. After the interview process you'll be asked to complete a test of varying level of difficulty. It's usually straightforward. They look for grammar and insight, so brush up on reading your quant numbers.

    Simple--seeing as how I was already employed in the company.
