    Project Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ipsos (London, England (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    After a bit of a delay got to the first step which was a telephone interview. Fairly straight forward and informal. Then waited for several weeks before getting a face to face interview which was to be held in Harrow, London.

    The face to face consisted of analyzing survey agents figures and results for 15 mins before going into the face to face interview. Fairly standard interview questions with 2 interviewers. The final stage of the face to face was to present what you found with the survey agents figures and advise what you thought was good/bad/how results could be improved.

    Was advised that the interview result would be communicated to me at the end of the following week.

    After having taken a day off work and the expense of travelling to Harrow Ipsos have not had the courtesy to advise what the interview result was. Having read on Glassdoor that they do take their time I did wonder if this was normal and usual turn of events however a month after the interview and still nothing so have given up on it.

    I have now secured a job elsewhere but did wonder if it would be worth chasing up if only to make the point of how disrespectful it is of Ipsos to leave candidates in limbo.

    Junior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ipsos (London, England (UK)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    For a company that boasts to be a market leader, I am disgusted with the interview process.

    The first stage interview was a telephone interview with which the interviewers laughed about not knowing how to pronounce my name. Then I was invited to the second stage of the interview process in one of the London offices (Tower Hill). I was interviewed by two of the associate directors, one of which payed no attention to my responses and acknowledged that by saying "I'm sorry, I forgot you already said that".

    Since this interview I have not had a follow up call or email letting me know the outcome of the interview. The whole process has been a month. Seriously not impressed.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ipsos (London, England (UK)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Initially contacted to do a timed online assessment. The following week I had in-person interview which primarily consisted of behavioral questions. Shortly after, they invited me to the second round interview where they sent over both qual/quant data to analyse and deliver a presentation. After I presented, I was asked a few more behavioral and team fit questions. Overall a fine experience, but was turned off by the way employees described the company culture as 'highly intelligent' and 'uptight'.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you tell me a time you had to use innovation/creativity to complete a task?
