I applied through other source and 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.

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

Research Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Ipsos in September 2008.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you worked in a team enviornment   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate.

Interviewed at Ipsos

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – If you were a car what car would you be?   Answer Question
