    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ipsos (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Went to the career fair and attended an information session at my University. Applied online. Started with a brief phone interview from HR that was more figuring out if you would be a good fit for the program. Then was invited to the downtown (Chicago) office for a series of interviews. First was an assessment with some simple word math problems and testing how you understand and can simplify complex data. Then had 3 interviews for about 45 minutes each with 2 interviewers in each session. Questions were mostly behavioral and asking about your past experience.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ipsos in February 2017.

    The first round interview with HR was pretty standard. They asked general questions about my background and then some questions that required you to think deeper about marketing and brand strategy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ipsos in January 2017.

    Interview

    My interview experience with this company was very negative.

    I was contacted by a recruiter to set up an initial phone screen and was provided with various times to speak. I replied later that day with the best time for me. I never heard back from the recruiter by the next week so I emailed to confirm our plans to chat the next day. She replied that she actually was no longer available at that time. She provided a time to connect later that week which we agreed on.

    I then received an email from her an hour before our agreed upon time to say that she had attempted to reach me but couldn't get in touch. I immediately responded and let her know that we had agreed to speak an hour later and asked if she was still available then. She apologized for her mistake, but she said that she was no longer available at that time and instead offered times for the next week for us to connect. I emailed her with a time when I was available and she replied the next day that she was no longer available at that time (again...).

    We finally connected later that week and had a great conversation about my background, the position and the company and its culture. She told me that the next step would be coming in to the office for a day of interviews and that one of those interview days was available in about two weeks time. She asked for me to send her an unofficial transcript and told me she would send me details about the interview day in the next few days. After our conversation I immediately followed up and provided her with my transcript. I never heard back so I followed up the next week and got no response. The original interview date that she had mentioned on the phone had passed, so I followed up one last time asking if there were additional times available and I received no response.

    None of this experience is how a recruiter should treat a candidate, both with scheduling the interview and telling a candidate they would be moving forward and then ignoring them after that. If you interview with them, be prepared for them not to value you or your time.

    This is not how a recruiter should treat a candidate, both with scheduling the interview and especially telling a candidate they would be moving forward and then ignoring them after that. If you interview with this company, be prepared for them not to value you or your time.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ipsos (Cincinnati, OH) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with HR which ended with my interviewer wanting to set up an in person interview with the hiring manager. My interviewer needed to get the hiring managers availability and that the interviewer would send me an email later that day with further details. I never received any further contact from the person I interviewed with, or anyone else at Ipsos, even after multiple attempts on my part to reach out to my point of contact.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ipsos (New York, NY).

    Interview

    So I scheduled with someone through email to conduct a phone interview within the same day of applying. I never heard from anyone and when I emailed them back they never responded. It was completely unprofessional and a waste of my time. Don't apply here if you actually want to be considered for a position.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ipsos (Parsippany, NJ) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online.
    Brief phone interview - was asked to come in person at the end of the same work
    In person interview - extremely unprofessional. was interviewed by 4 different people. 2 of them were not even told they would be interviewing until 5 minutes after I showed up to the office. Was given no briefing about the position or the positions of the people I spoke to until I asked. First question "when can you start?" thought that was weird. Normal behavioral questions like strengths, weaknesses, take me through your resume. Lot of questions about skillset with Excel, powerpoint, statistical and regression models.
    Assuming I didn't get the position after sending thank you emails, emailing HR twice, I've received no response - super unprofessional to say the least.
