    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    No Offer
    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.

    There are 2 phone interviews by the top executives of the company more of technical and HR interview type. Then I was called for a full day of interview with 6 people across various categories mostly asking about the questions related to data mapping into the system and table designing. 3 interviews were normal interviews and other 3 were normal interviews accessing my other skills.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    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.

    Market Research Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Ipsos (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Fairly easy, mostly just a chat about leadership skills, quantitative experience etc. Basically you go in and tell them about a time you had to work really hard, a time you had to be a leader, pros and cons about yourself. There was also a math assessment but it was pretty simple! Just review your basic math and long division etc. Included in that was some data analysis of a chart, once again pretty simple.

    Research Analyst Interview

    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.

    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ipsos (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively quick. I will mentioned that most analysts seem to be hired as referrals, but I applied online. I heard back within a few weeks (as they were compiling applicants to hire as a class). The first interview is with a recruiter who screens you on a number of behavioral interview questions, salary requirements, and some basic questions about your experience and education.

    The second and last round of interviews is with a group of more senior employees specific to your business unit. The process began with a short assessment that tested my basic mathematical skills, logic, and writing skills. I then interviewed with four members on my business unit. This interview was about two weeks after the screening.

    i heard back about two weeks later with an offer.

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Ipsos.

    Interview

    After online application I was called by HR for an initial screening. After the screening I was asked to come in for an interview to meet with 3 people individually. A little over 3 weeks later I sent a follow up email to HR to inquire about the status of my application and was asked to come in for a second interview to meet with 3 more people. A few days after I was asked to come in for a 3rd interview the following week and met with 4 more new people. 2 days after the third interview I was offered a position.
    During the interview process I was also asked to provide basic documents (school transcript, SAT/ACT scores, references)

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard questions were asked during the interviews: How do you handle having many tasks at once? Would you say you are detail oriented and big picture? What is one weakness? etc.   Answer Question
