Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J.D. Power (Troy, MI) in November 2015.

Interview

Interviews are schedules for 3 hour blocks. The first hour is set aside for a testing on basic English skills that isn't overly difficult. You than have two half hour blocks with two research team managers. They will ask you basic information on yourself and your previous work experience/qualifications. Overall it is a trying and exhaustive process so come prepared.

Interview Questions

  • -Tell us about yourself.. who are you?
    -How has your previous work experience prepared you for this role?
    -Why J.D Power?  
    Answer Question

Negotiation

Don't ask for a certain salary. Instead, make it clear that you won't go under a certain amount. For example "I can't go below 40,000." Let them make the first offer.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J.D. Power (Troy, MI).

    Interview

    Basic work experience questions. Also asked situational questions to gauge how I would preform daily tasks on the job. Interviewed with two separate individuals back-to-back from the specific team that I would eventually join. Then completed a test that they used to gauge my data analysis and report writing skills. Entire interview process was only one day and took just over 2 hours.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J.D. Power (Westlake Village, CA).

    Interview

    Got a phone call scheduling the interview then met with 2 groups of people. They were all managers from the group I applied to. They asked about my work experience and what I knew about cars. They told me what the job entails and what I would be doing day to day. Then I took a test that tested basic grammar, math, and statistic knowledge. They said day to day tasks is entering data on excel spreadsheets or verifying numbers match up from their consumer surveys. Sounds really monotonous and boring.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J.D. Power (Troy, MI) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Recieved a phone call from hr to set up interview, told there would be an interview and a basic skills test. On interview day I arrived to find it was actually 3 different interviews each with two different hiring managers/ directors. Everyone was very relaxed and friendly. I was given a chance to discuss past experiences and skills without being interrogated.

    After the interview I was given a basic skills test which consisted of simple math and proof reading exercises.

    The entire process took about three hours. After this process it took nearly a month to hear from hr and receive an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at J.D. Power (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    3 interviews - 1 phone, 1 in-person and the last one was by phone as well. Process took under 1 month in total. No skills test for me, and no tricky questions. Spent a lot of time reviewing the company to see if I was a good fit for them; expect to say very little and be judged on your reactions and ability to fit yourself into conversation
