    Economic Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Econ One Research (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Average interviews, straight forward, focus on communicating but kinda confusing.
    They are friendly and try to be professional, all make sense but you would never know what exactly they want. It seems like they interview a lot of candidates but only want one.
    There're 3 interviews, it is a long process and waste of time.

    Research Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Econ One Research (San Francisco, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    First is a phone interview that generally covers the basics of you and the job. The second is a Skype interview with managing partner and another senior economist. That's as far as I got, but if you make it past there I remember them mentioning a final in house interview that includes a test of your Stata/SAS/Excel skills. You should be an expert at managing data and moving it between excel and stata as this will probably be your ticket to that third interview.

    Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Econ One Research (Denver, CO) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I had 2 interviews over the phone. The first interview was with the HR Director (30 minutes) and the other was with the Managing Director (almost an hour). Both asked very thorough questions regarding statistical programming (SAS and Stata) as the position requires experience in these programs. Other questions asked were pretty basic such as those related to work attitude e.g. long hours, ability to collaborate etc; education background; ability to relocate etc.

    I also had the opportunity to ask questions regarding the team that I would work with if hired, work environment, types of work, career development etc.

    Overall, the interviewers were very pleasant. They sounded friendly over the phone, so no extra pressure. Also, as long as you are prepared to answer programming related questions, you would probably be rather prepared to handle the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about the SAS project that you've done for school.
      Tell me about your work at your previous company.
      Do you work better in a group/ individual/ open setting?
      Tell me about your education background

    Interview

    First was a phone interview which was very easy, but they asked a very difficult one for me which screwed me up at the end. Because I could not recall about an example of the type of question they asked.

    Found the ad on Craigslist, and emailed back and forth with the existing receptionist. Got called in for 2 interviews- one with the hiring director and the overall office manager.

    Economic Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Econ One Research (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I should preface this review by saying I was an intern at Econone prior to being interviewed for an Analyst position. With that said, I did not have a phone interview, but still went through the same on-site interview as all other applicants. The on-site interview consisted of a written exam (knowledge of SAS, excel, case study), a one-on-one interview/ review of your test answers, and then a group interview with about 2 or 3 senior employees. In general, the atmosphere proved to be quite a bit more relaxed than previous interviews. Though the interviewers did have questions, the dialogue within the interview tended to be more of a conversation between people and less of a structured/ uncomfortable Q&A. Overall, I had a fairly positive and stress-free experience.
