    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Ipsos.

    Interview Details

    Emailed by HR to be contacted for initial overview. Set up a time and person spoke briefly about the position and company. She then told me I would be contacted with a hiring manager for a phone interview. She initially did not get back to me and was terrible at answering emails. Finally got a phone interview over a week later. After that I was not contacted for over a MONTH. sent several emails regarding to interview, not one was answered.

    Pretty easy. No background checks or tests. I would say it's one of the least rigorous interview process I've done. Everyone was very nice and interesting to speak with.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ipsos in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Very informal. You will be asked to meeting with at least 2 people (3 maximum) on different occasion.

    You will likely first meet with the MD who will tell you about the company in general, and gauage your "fit" with the company. Even though the talk seems to be very informat, he has very keen eye, and likely to see whehter you will fit with the organization.

    If you pass, you will meet with your "next boss" who likely to be Research Director, and he/ she will interview you whehter you suit the position in his/ her team. You might meet with your "future colleague". and that should be all the process

    Negotiation Details
    They tend to give you the fair price. So not much room too negotiate after that. Maybe you get a bit more, but that's it.
