    Difficult Interview


    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Harris Interactive.


    These people are truly ridiculous. As everyone else has mentioned, you talk with HR on the phone first, and they have no idea how to answer any actual job function questions. They first make you do a 'writing sample' in which you are supposed to interpret 25+ pages of nonsensical data with no context whatsoever. I have worked in research for quite awhile and this took me 7+ hours. I'm sure it could be completed faster but I thought it might get me an interview so I spent some more time on it... and then I never heard from them again. If they're going to ask for 'writing samples' they should really do something more sensitive to candidates' time. And they should do them AFTER meeting them. I knew almost nothing about the job (aside from the job listing) and didn't even talk to anyone I would be working with so I really had no way of knowing whether completing the assignment would be a good use of time. Spoiler alert: it definitely wasn't! Oh, and their salary ranges are pitiful.
