Research Executive Interview

Research Executive
Bangkok (Thailand)

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Ipsos in April 2013.

Interview Details – I got a call for an interview about a week after I applied through an email.

The interview was in a very relaxing manner. I was interviewed by research directors. Most questions were based on my CV but in detailed. They were very friendly like they wanna know you as a person; why you did this and that, why Ipsos, why research. Then they asked this one question that was kinda intended to assess my analytical skill and to see how well I respond to pressure. That's pretty much it, then they gave me a chance to ask back and let me choose between the company's specialisations. Then, they passed me on to another interview with another director, So, I thought I didn't get the offer but they just were being nice.

However, I received another phone call. Again, the interview was nothing stressful. It began with simple questions, then unexpectedly, it quickly moved onto the next level. Now, It's nerve-racking because I was asked to complete a report based on statistical data and to deliver a presentation based on that analysis. Fortunately, It went well. Then, about a week later I got a call for an offer which I gladly accepted.

I think it's pretty much about your characteristics and to see how well you would fit with their teams and organisation. For me the experience was pretty amazing because it's totally different from my imagination where we all sits with our backs straight the whole time. Just be your professional self.

Interview Question – To complete a report based on statistical data and to deliver a presentation based on that analysis.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There's no palm sweating session. I got what I asked for.

Research Executive Interview

Research Executive

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ipsos.

Interview Details – I submitted interview through online job portal, and received calls from HR about 5 days later. An interview with the hiring manager was arranged on the next week.

The office is great, but the location is not near city center, a little bit hard to find.

Two Hiring Managers were very nice to talk to, just asked some question relating to previous experience, and checked whether understand the job responsibilities.
