    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?
      Are you a words or numbers person?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ipsos (London, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruitment agency and was invited for an interview with two research managers. Semi-formal interview with plenty of questions around my current job and projects I have worked on. Both interviewers were really friendly and I enjoyed the experience.

    I was then invited back for a second interview (told the same day) which involved analysing material given to me a few days beforehand and putting together a powerpoint to present to two associate directors, followed by another semi-formal interview with similar questions to before. Again, very friendly interviewers and I enjoyed the experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ipsos (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I got invited to an interview after my online application. It had 2 rounds, 1st round was standard HR background check, trying to get to know more about your past experience, personality, strengths n weakness. Next you have 2 hours to complete 1 assessment and 1 personality profiling task. They put me through the qualitative assessment stream and pretty much checking your writing skills, articulation, and analysis. (i just happened to met a director after my assessment which was supposed to be 2nd round).

    after I passed 1st round, I was invited for a 2nd/final round with my potential team head (director-level). that's pretty much trying to get to know me as a person, to check my personality and cultural fit. Nothing too challenging - if you are really passionate about research and dont sell yourself too hard.

    be curious and be genuine.
