    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.

    Easy Interview

    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

    Interview

    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. Questions were rather standard interview type questions and each interviewer was polite and profession.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Ipsos (New York, NY) in September 2008.

    Interview

    The hiring process is rather lengthy, however, necessary. Ipsos does a very good job of ensuring the employee is actually qualified to do the job. They also are quite good at explaining exactly what the position entails. I had over 6 interviews with Ipsos employees. The disadvantage to this is it makes the interview process very lengthy. The advantage is you get to speak to the majority of the people you would be working with on a day to day basis.

    Negotiation

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Ipsos (Sydney (Australia)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Invited for a demanding interview with 3 key members of the team - Director and 2 Managers. Interview took 2 hours, pretty complex on fit/attitude side with clear technical focus at the end (maths, statistics, econometrics). Got an econometrics assignment to solve at home. Feedback received within 1 week, however formalizing the offer with HR took unexpectedly long (more than another 2 weeks+).

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a three members of the ASI team, who were trying to determine if I were a good fit more than being concerned with my qualifications. I also had to pass an 1.5 hr test, which included various statistical, analytical, word-processing, and formatting tasks. What was different from other interviews was that it took almost a month after the interview for HR to get back to me and inform me that they had decided to go with someone else.
