    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ipsos.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter about a month later. The whole process seemed disorganized. The recruiter gave me a few different time options for a phone interview, and I responded shortly after with my preferences. The recruiter didn't respond until the next day and said those times actually weren't available anymore and asked if we could do it in a few hours. I agreed. The interview was pretty easy and straightforward and mostly asked about my past experiences.

    The recruiter ended the call by saying that if I was selected, the in-person interview would be the following week. I explained that I would be out of town that particular day and couldn't change my travel plans on that short of notice, and asked if there was an alternate time. The recruiter said that I could maybe go in for the interview day during the following month, but we'd cross that bridge if we came to it.

    I was emailed a couple days later and invited to the in-person interview on the day previously mentioned. I explained my situation again and expressed that I was still interested, and asked if I could interview during an alternate time. No response. I followed up again to make sure the recruiter got my email, and again no response. I followed up one more time later that week and still no response.

    I've never had an experience like this. I was surprised that they only give two days notice for an all-day interview on a non-negotiable date, and disappointed that the recruiter became completely unresponsive. It certainly left a negative impression, and I don't plan to apply again.

    Market Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bloomfield Hills, MI

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ipsos (Bloomfield Hills, MI) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had a video interview where I had to record my answers to interview questions. The whole thing was pretty uncomfortable, but the questions were basic.

    I was kind of disappointed when they told me based on my answers that I will not qualify for another interview even though the video interview went well and I answered their questions to expectation. I thought that there would be additional follow up just based on the fact that I didn't talk to anyone, just to a program.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ipsos in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very long and extensive. I had 3 phone interviews and heard back from each of the interviews fairly quick. And then I had an in person interview where I met with 3 different people. Ask the basic interview questions and pretty informal. They said I would hear back either way. I hadn't heard back for a week so I emailed the HR and no response. I emailed the HR again a week later and no response so I assume I had just been ghosted. HR finally emailed me back more than 3 weeks later asking to speak on the phone. HR called me after all that time to let me know they went with another candidate. Very weird....

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ipsos (Norwalk, CT) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I was given a list of topics that I needed to cover in a PowerPoint presentation in front of 5 people. The presentation took about 20 minutes to do. After the presentation, I had a conversation covering a wide array of interview questions with the same group. My experience was extremely positive as everyone was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable.
