After about a week a phone screen interview was conducted, this was followed by testing, a first interview, further testing, and a second interview. The interview process took about a week.

I applied online and interviewed at iData Research.

Interview Details – first talked to someone who claimed to be an HR manager and then found out theyare the editor. was really confused because they seemed so unknowledgeable and unprofessional then i found out they are not really part of HR

Interview Question – not difficult   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – negotiation is not allowed. i learned this by reading review of iData before going into the interview. other reviews say if you negotiate or take too long to sign the contract while management hovers over you you quickly lose your offer. this is all true

Very Easy Interview

Position Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at iData Research.

Interview Details – Received a casual call from the HR person. The first one-on-one interview with the HR representative was approximately 15 minutes long. Afterwards, found out she wasn't even a legit HR person. She was the receptionist/editor. She wasn't all that professional and didn't seemed prepared for the interview at all.

Interview Question – Questions were very unstructured and common. Nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

Research Analyst Interview

Research Analyst

Interviewed at iData Research

Interview Details – Entire process involved two separate interviews:

First interview comprised of a sit down with their HR who asks typical interview questions and a writing portion where they ask you to analyze some data and do a writeup.

Second interview involved doing some phone calls (to test comfort speaking on phone?) and another sit down with members from analyst and sales team. This was also followed by a quick meeting with the CEO.

Interview Question – In the second interview you will be asked to answer some brain teasers like how many diapers are sold in China.   Answer Question

Research Analyst Interview

Research Analyst
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at iData Research in January 2011.

Interview Details – There are two face-to-face interviews. The first interview, you meet with the HR person (and I use that term loosely). Then a practical test takes place where you must calculate CAGRs and forecast market sizes. After that, you interview with a sales person and an analyst. Finally, you meet the CEO who gives you his view on market research. Either the CEO is seeing the world through rose colored glasses or he is delusional about the grandeur of his company.

Interview Question – Calculate the CAGR (the % can change over the years) of a market.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation and the CEO does not let you take the contract home for review. He makes you sign it on the spot and if you take too long he glares at you.

Analysis Interview

Anonymous Employee
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

The process took 2 days - interviewed at iData Research in January 2011.

Interview Details – They always ask the square root of 1000 and how to figure out how many diapers in China. They will do a test where they ask you to look at a list of facts and talk about it. All you need to do for that test is take the data and make a table or chart showing that what the numbers in the test tell you.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – Don't bother negotiating. The salary is excessively low and there is no room for bargaining. In fact, just avoid the company unless you are desperate for income.
