I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at comScore.

Interview Details – I interviewed on campus with comScore. The interview was a short behavioral based 30 minute interview. After getting called back, I interviewed at headquarters in Reston, VA. There were 4 interviews along with the Wonderlick test. The first interview was a senior VP and as the day went on I met with someone from a different level, ending with a Client Service Analyst. The first interviewer took me through a case/marketing type question. The rest were behavioral.

Senior Client Service Manager Interview

Senior Client Service Manager

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at comScore.

Interview Details – Spoke with HR on the phone. HR generally knows very little about the role so they're only able to ask and answer very generic questions. The in-person interview takes about 3 hours. I took a timed multiple choice test (basically to make sure you're not an idiot), met with 2 Sr. Directors, an SVP and another manager who answered more of the day to day questions. I spoke with the EVP later that week and received an offer within the week.

Interview Question – Nothing difficult. Since this is a marketing research company, be able to show your previous analyticf experience and work. I brought in old presentations and they loved it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They do move very quickly if they want you and are VERY open to negotiations. I negotiated my salary up by over 20%. If you know where you stand with them, don't be afraid to ask for what you want. Also, ask for a signing bonus. It's worth it!

Client Service Analyst Interview

Client Service Analyst

Interviewed at comScore

Interview Details – I applied through my university recruiting website. After a basic, very short interview at my school, I was asked to interview at headquarters. I met with four employees, one of which was a recent grad. Only one interviewer asked challenging questions. The entire process was lengthy but fairly straightforward. Many of my peers and I were never contacted with either an offer or denial.

Interview Question – These questions were specific to projects I had completed in school.   Answer Question

Negative Experience

Finance Interview

Finance
Reston, VA

Interviewed at comScore

Interview Details – screen interview with recruiter. 1:1 with 2 finance execs.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I had done my research on the company, specifically reading comments on Glassdoor. I read how company execs lie, how they don't want to pay well, etc. The hiring mgr told me the position was originally a Sr Director role but was downgraded to a Sr Manager role so a financial analyst could also be hired. However, expectations and responsibilities were not downgraded. This just reinforced the behavior I read about on Glassdoor. I didn't want to be a part of a company and team with no moral compass.

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager

Interviewed at comScore

Interview Details – First interview was with HR, it was 45 minutes long. After a good deal of Q&A the HR person told me that the next step would be to have a call with the Hiring Manager. That was set up within a week, and that too went well. I was invited for a day at the office and met a number of the team members. 1:1 interviews were very informative, many questions were asked including a few case questions. Within a few days I was offered a position.

Interview Question – Finding the intersection of big data and potential questions that can be addressed for different client industries.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I received another offer.
