I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at comScore in November 2013.
Interview Details –
First round was on campus. Behavioral/functional, mostly discussed my experiences with data, received some constructive criticism which was a nice touch. Got an email for a final round 2 weeks later; it got scheduled a month after that.
Final round at their Reston HQ consists of 3 1:1 interviews with employees of increasing seniority (culminating with a VP) and then a discussion session with a new grad, plus a lunch with a different VP. First interview was mostly behavioral interspersed with technical questions just to get a feel for your skills with SQL/R/whatever, a couple of logic questions and very general market sizing. Second was entirely behavioral, third involved a lot of the VP explaining their area of expertise and maybe a question or two about how you'd approach a problem they might encounter on a regular basis. Overall pretty easy process.
All of it went really smoothly; other glassdoor descriptions made me worried I'd get obnoxious or rude interviewers, but everyone was really nice and informative. No one tried to oversell the company and they were focused on describing the job, not on dumb perks or other useless stuff. HR was also super helpful throughout the process. Got back in less than a week with an offer.

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at comScore.
Interview Details – First round was completely behavioral, really enjoyed the conversation. Invited for final rounds in the Reston office. The experience was painfully awkward and uncomfortable and so I didn't accept the offer.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you gathered large amounts of data and analyzed it. Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at comScore in June 2013.
Interview Details –
The process was very smooth and encouraging.
I was contacted initially by the HR director regarding the position which I applied for. They seemed very impressed by my resume.
The HR director was very pleassant to speak to during the phone conversation and at no point made it seem like an interview and it rather sounded like a conversation.
My main interview was the department's director and VP. For some some reason the VP was not able to make it and on a very short notice the controller stepped in to fill his spot.
The director (my immediate supervisor) made me very comfortable during the interview. At some point he would take controller of the conversation but on the other hand allowed me as well to take control accordingly.
The interview with the controller was very technical. He (and along with the rest of the people) seemed very interested in my AOL experience as the work was very unique and similar to this position.
The interview with the VP started off as a technical interview but soon transformed into more of a conversation.

I applied online and interviewed at comScore.
Interview Details – Lengthy but quite efficient process but HR people could be more polished.
Interview Question – No questions were difficult, but the interviewer should be technical if they are asking technical question. One person was clearly not technical person pretending to be one but her terminologies were way off. Stick to behavioral questions if you don't know what you are talking about. Answer Question
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.
I applied online - interviewed at comScore in February 2013.
Interview Details – They have four rounds on site. This is after a telephonic / video conferencing interview. Once you are flown to reston you get decent lunch and miscellaneous stuff. Interviews are mostly about projects you have done in the past. Very less coding questions will be asked. Mostly about your past experience.
Interview Question – What is the most disliked thing about previous job? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Negotiation is always there since the initial offer in timid.
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at comScore in January 2013.
Interview Details –
I applied through their careers section and one of the recruiting team sent an email to me asking details of my career, experience, passion and references to open source projects & stack overflow profile page. I sent the required details and got a call from recruiter for initial screening. It was followed by a phone interview with a Director and then I attended 3 rounds of face to face at their Reston office.
Recruiters were very friendly and the entire process completed in a week. Just hours after the interview when I was returning back to my home, I got a call from the recruiter and he detailed about the offer, salary. Not much of negotiations though, they provided the salary what I was looking. A very pleasant interview process.
Most of the interview questions were very basic and simple to answer. If you have 3 - 4 years of experience in product development, especially with BIG DATA, it is very easy to clear interview.
Reason for Declining – I got a better offer as well as I was not impressed with the skills of technical interviewers. The nature of questions they asked me were very basic and I thought that there is not much to learn.

The process took a day - interviewed at comScore in December 2011.
Interview Details – Absolutely bizarre. I spoke with five people and still have no idea what this company does or what my job would have been. Nobody seemed to have any passion for their jobs. Lots of strange IT types lumped into the awkward interview and lunch with a senior manager. Reston is a bland corner of suburban Washington. I'd say more, but I'm just confused.
Interview Question – Don't remember any Answer Question
