    Industry Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Freedonia Group (Mayfield, OH) in March 2016.

    Interview

    First, there was a brief phone interview explaining the process, then I went in to take a test. That was as far as I got. I apparently didn't do well on the test, though aside from the ping pong question (how many ping pong balls would it take to fill the cubicle) I didn't find it that difficult, but I expect that telling the HR chick that the Myers-Briggs assessment they had me fill out online after their test was the social science equivalent of astrology probably didn't help either.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Freedonia Group (Cleveland, OH) in February 2016.

    Interview

    You are placed in a room by yourself and given a test on both general knowledge and basic economic skills, and are given 25 minutes for each test. After this, you are given a stack of research information and asked to prepare a one to two page document analyzing and summarizing the information provided to you. No personal interaction occurs through this process - they do not care about your social skills whatsoever.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Freedonia Group (Cleveland, OH) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process makes a lot of sense - they first bring you in to take a test, which gauges proofreading ability, includes logic/math problems, and concludes by having you write a short report based on some documents/charts. If the test goes well, they will bring you back in for an interview, and have you meet with a few different people (I met with three).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Freedonia Group.

    Interview

    Came in, took a test with slight quantitative questions and out-of-date logic puzzles. Spoke with current employees as the CEO. Seemed like good people. We mostly talked about our interests and these seemed to be more about getting to know me as a person whereas the tests were about skills.

    Interview

    Behaviorial interview plus technical assessment. Plus they have a consulting-like skills assessment. Takes about 45-60 min. Very casual. Discussion-y. Assessed background, capabilities and enthusiasm for position. Hiring process was slow. Waited a long time for decision.

    Research Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Freedonia Group (Mayfield Heights, Cuyahoga, OH) in August 2015.

    Interview

    After waiting a couple weeks I was given a pre-screen interview by the HR manager discussing the company, positions being considered, and the onsite test. The onsite test was a combination of logic problems, math problems, grammar/spell checking a document, and an essay based on some provided research. A week after the test, I received a letter letting me know I would not be invited in for an interview. Given what others said, I likely did not do well enough on the aptitude test, which can be mostly chalked up to nerves more than anything else.

    I will echo what others have said about the place being extremely quiet. Even the front secretary seemed pretty anti-social. Still not sure what to make of that, honestly.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Freedonia Group.

    Interview

    Received a phone call and discussed job roles, was invited for a pre-screening test. The test was mostly logic and math/quantitative skills. I had to submit my recent test scores (SAT, ACT, GRE) along with the application. Walking into the building, which isn't huge, you can see people working in cubicles all over but the only thing I heard was the distant sound of a copier. No one was talking, at all. The only words I heard the entire time were from the HR rep. Received a rejection letter in the mail a week after the test

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Freedonia Group.

    Interview

    It seemed like no one knew what job I was applying for -- ended up interviewing three times for three different positions, none of which matched my application or resume qualifications. This was after taking a test that I was told after-the-fact I did poorly on, but then told I aced in the three actual interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Started out with a math and general knowledge test. The math wasn't too difficult just basic arithmetic. The harder questions were how many golf balls fit into the room you're in and how many tires are bought each year. General knowledge questions were what's the capital of Germany and who is the secretary of the state.
