I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I 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
- Accepted Offer
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. I 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. I 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

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ipsos (San Francisco, CA) in March 2014.

I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ipsos.
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.
- What are some of the challenges you've previously faced that would help you now in this position? Answer Question
Simple--seeing as how I was already employed in the company.

I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Ipsos.
Contacted by an internal recruiter within a few days of applying. Spoke on the phone and had an easy screening interview; didn't hear back for a few weeks and then the recruiter called to schedule an interview with the team. Very informal and went well (met four people who were all very personable and made me feel comfortable). After that, didn't hear anything for almost a month, and then the recruiter contacted me to set up an interview with a VP, which was also pretty informal; I was told they would be making a decision within a week. And then radio silence. When I asked the recruiter (after another month) what happened, I was told they "really liked me" but hadn't made a decision yet and were still interviewing candidates- four months after my initial contact with them.
- Actually there weren't even a lot of questions. They just told me about the position and the team/company and asked about my background and how I saw it fitting the needs of the position. Answer Question
