    Basic work experience questions. Also asked situational questions to gauge how I would preform daily tasks on the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J.D. Power (Westlake Village, CA).

    Interview

    Got a phone call scheduling the interview then met with 2 groups of people. They were all managers from the group I applied to. They asked about my work experience and what I knew about cars. They told me what the job entails and what I would be doing day to day. Then I took a test that tested basic grammar, math, and statistic knowledge. They said day to day tasks is entering data on excel spreadsheets or verifying numbers match up from their consumer surveys. Sounds really monotonous and boring.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J.D. Power (Troy, MI) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Recieved a phone call from hr to set up interview, told there would be an interview and a basic skills test. On interview day I arrived to find it was actually 3 different interviews each with two different hiring managers/ directors. Everyone was very relaxed and friendly. I was given a chance to discuss past experiences and skills without being interrogated. After the interview I was given a basic skills test which consisted of simple math and proof reading exercises. The entire process took about three hours. After this process it took nearly a month to hear from hr and receive an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at J.D. Power (Troy, MI) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Calm interviewing process - you do not feel like you're being interrogated,,,, you feel more like you are just having a discussion about what your work history and experience is. Don't get me wrong, it's definitely a professional environment - it's just less emphasis on talking about all the "fluff".

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They aren't always able to match vacation days "on paper" but often times you can work out an agreement with the hiring manager.

    Interview

    Current employee referred me to the recruiter for the position I interviewed for. Recruiter called to schedule the interview with the research manager and director. Went into interview first with recruiter then the hiring manager, did not end up meeting with the director. Interview seemed to go very well, they were impressed by my background but I heard early the following day that they went with an internal candidate who had already formed a relationship with the client team. I was told the starting salary for this position was about $54k/year.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a number of project teams, as well as extensively by the project team that I was going to be working with. Overall it seemed as though they were trying to get more of an idea of my personality than trying to see what skills I brought to the table. The people were all very friendly and laid back, but didn't seem enthusiastic about the company.
