I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Ipsos (Parsippany, NJ) in June 2015.
The interview was brief but very easy. The initial phone interview was very comfortable and my interviewer just wanted to see if I was articulate and she went over my resume. I had received the interview through a referral for a position in NJ. I had asked for my packet to be transferred to a NYC office which she did. I am waiting to find out if I made the in-person interview for NYC.

Phone interview. Very brief. Hiring Manager explained the position and was very personable. Went through resume and asked about each of my relevant experiences. She moved my along in the interview process immediately, offering me another interview while still on the phone.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Ipsos (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2015.
Interviews pretty standard, process long though. It was for an internal position and therefore the process was a bit different than an outside candidate. Good interviews that highlighted the job and my skills, low pressure tactics.

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

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Ipsos (Parsippany, NJ) in August 2014.
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.
- Mostly conversational and none of those behavioral "tell me about a time when..." questions Answer Question

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.
- Standard interview questions. Answer Question

I applied through other source. The process took a week – interviewed at Ipsos.
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

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Ipsos (New York, NY) in June 2014.
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.
- Pretty straightforward questions. Answer Question
- Accepted Offer
The interview process was very thorough. I came into the office 3 times. I felt like they really put me through the ringer
- What did you dislike most about your last job. Answer Question
