    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at IBISWorld (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Incomplete job description. The phone interviews are basically managers trying to sell you the role. The face to face interview clarifies that the company is really trying to hire managers for teams. They have a 4 level plan for you regardless if you want to adhere to the plan. Little communication between employees. Culture of telling your bosses info so they can tell their bosses. Complicated product for niche customers. The BDM Role is only a one time sale.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at IBISWorld (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    it was 2 interviews. One with HR and one with two managers. Very easy and quick. They ask a lot of questions about consultative sales and how you sell in general. They ask a lot of behavioral about your past history. If you have lots of stories about how you have sold in the past you will do well.

After that, I had an in-person interview where I had to do another writing assignment and they asked me a number of other technical economic-based questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IBISWorld (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    After applying online, I got an email two weeks later to set up a phone interview. I prepared for it and felt confident and when I talked to an editor, she was really impressed that I knew a lot about the company, etc. She then sent me a writing test and I had a time limit on it. After completing the writing test, I sent it back but there were technical issues when I got the writing test which resulted in those issues affecting my test and submission. When the editor realized, she said she still wanted to see my results and would get back to me soon. Never heard from them and reached out twice to them to make sure everything was good to go or if they had any questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at IBISWorld in August 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a senior editor who used the word "chill" to describe the office setting and said the people are his favorite part of the job. He sounded very young and unpolished. After the interview, which lasted about 20 min., I took an editing test. The test was in a Word doc, so some errors were already highlighted. After that, I was told I did well on the test and that they wanted to bring me in for an in-person interview. I was out of state, so I could not fly in for the meeting, and they wanted me to start very quickly if hired. I told them I could do a video interview instead and then I didn't hear from them again. I wouldn't have been able to move to NY within about a week.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at IBISWorld (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and was reached out via e-mail by a HR. Went through the first step, phone interview. I do have to say the phone interview was very relax and the HR person was very pleasant and easy to talk to. You are asked some technical questions and as long as you give thoughtful answer you should be ok. All questions I had about the company were answered very well. Overall the phone interview was easy (with preparation). The second step of the process was to finish a section on a industry report, which was due in 24 hours. It is not that hard and they provide a complete one for you to see kind of what they desire. All the information to finish the report was on the report itself, you were free to use other source as well. I was not called for the last step of the process , which is a a face to face interview and another writing assignment at the offices. Over all was a pleasant experience and really enjoyed talking to the HR person.

    My suggestion is to look at other interview reviews and refresh yourself on financial terms/concepts.
