    Referred by a former employee. Recruiter was very responsive. Call with feedback and next steps the same day of the first interview. Interviewed with individual managers for half a day.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Plano, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Research Now.

    Interview Details

    I was reached out to by an internal recruiter via LinkedIn. I was semi-actively looking at the time but wasn't advertising it...they found me purely based on my profile. I had a phone interview with the recruiter, followed by three in-persons at the company HQ in Plano. The first was with the hiring manager, who would be my manager at the position. The second was with two other members of the team, including an exec level person who was the head of the department. The third was with a VP at a subsidiary I would be working with. It was a very quick process, all three in-persons were done within maybe 10 business days. At the third in-person, the hiring manager actually told me I would get the job & I had an offer from the HR person the next day.

    Negotiation Details
    I had another pending offer at the same time & the recruiter did put a bit of pressure on me to make a decision quickly. My issue was distance & ultimately I negotiated to have tolls & commute costs added into my salary, which they agreed to. It is certainly worth negotiating with them. I suspect success will vary position to position.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Research Now.

    Interview Details

    Very smooth - recruiting and HR team are fantastic!

    Interview Questions
    • Fairly smooth - the interviews were tough but casual. Know the company, know the business, and convince them you can sell. Other aspects can be taught, but you have to be able to sell (hunt), cold call/email, and always prove ways you can add value to the company and the clients.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Simple and smooth - I was happy with the initial offer, did not need to negotiate.

    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Plano, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Research Now in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Disorganized and immature hiring process. I was contacted numerous times by their head of HR to schedule phone interviews. Phone interviews were arranged with their Marketing Director and Marketing VP. I was told that I had done well at each stage and invited to their local HQ for a more in-depth interview. The HR director emailed me numerous times to set-up the HQ interview and for some unknown reason, could never get the scheduling confirmed. At one point he confirmed a date and then contacted me later in the day via email to cancel saying he based his scheduling on the wrong month. Seriously?! After that lame excuse, he never followed-up to reschedule. I just don't understand this company. Either you want to schedule an interview or you don't. Why not just be mature and state that the person won't make the next level instead of a series of ridiculous and convoluted emails about supposed "scheduling problems"? If their hiring process is this disorganized, I can only be grateful that I didn't make it all the way through.

    Interview Questions

    Quality Assurance Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Plano, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Research Now in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    First step of the interview is a two-part test - SQL and a Test Case scenario inside the HR Manager's office. He takes it to the hiring team and if you pass then you go to another room where you take a face-to-face with the leads. They focused heavily on HP Quality Center. You will know within the hour after leaving the office if you have the job or not.

    It was no room for negotiation at all: I was told i get what i get, and if not, there is nothing the company can do. I do believe having relevant experience would help to negotiate.
