    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Parsippany, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Parsippany, NJ
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ipsos in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Senior Research Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ipsos in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Ipsos.

    Interview Details

    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.

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

    Interviewed with four senior managers one-on-one. Each asked similar questions and focused on personality, qualitative and quantitative research abilities, professional communication ability and other such skills.
