Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed 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.

    There's an Excel test; be prepared on your charting skills (formatting the graph to match another already formatted graph, changing axis etc.) and formulas like LEN function and Vlookup (the latter being really important in the work itself), MAX, MIN, the usual........a brief test on how to work SPSS....and the usual interview rounds with the managers and Admin people.
