    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Prague (Czech Republic)
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at IDC (International Data Corporation) (Prague (Czech Republic)).

    Interview

    nothing special, but I would expect to get recruitment little bit earlier than almost two months. Also during the interview hiring manager tells you a lot of fascinating stuff, but once you join the organization you will shortly find out all you have to do is crunch data and don't ask too many questions

    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at IDC (International Data Corporation) (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)).

    Interview

    The hiring process was rapid. I had 4 rounds of interviews with them over 6 days, the first being a 75 minute test assessing basic language and Excel, and problem-solving (estimate the number of cats in LA) skills.

    The next interview was a phone interview with the Hiring Manager for the position, who was based in Singapore. She focused quite a bit on my dissertation, what I did, how I did it and my results. The next interview was with a senior analyst at the office I would be based and the last one with two peers from an IDC office in India. Parts of these interviews, to a further or lesser extent, were quite similar. Questions about motivations and competencies were repeated at each juncture.

    Interview Questions

    • Whether or not I was comfortable working with spreadsheets with over a thousand inputs. It was a difficult question to justify my answer to due to my lack of experience working with such spreadsheets.   Answer Question
