    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at MaPS (Boston, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward. I had an initial 30 min conversation and was invited back for the final round interview. No trick questions. They were mostly interested in my previous work experience, specifically relevant internship and class experience. Very few behavior questions. Case study was 30 min and involved reading a prompt, analyzing excel data, and creating a short powerpoint presentation.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at MaPS.

    Interview

    First round was a phone interview; second round was a three hour segment broken up into the following - 1 in-person interview, 2 video conferences, 1 case study, opportunity to shadow an employee.

    Interview Questions

    • I was surprised that they didn't ask many behavioral questions. Rather, they are adamant about asking why market research and why MaPS. They are also curious about past research you have conducted, so make sure you have examples in your back pocket.   Answer Question

    Research Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MaPS (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend from college who worked in the New York office. I applied for Chicago office position. The whole process lasted about 2-3 weeks, including an initial phone interview and an in-person interview. The initial interview was pretty standard. They take a lot of interest in the research experience you have and ask questions about research methods. In-person interview consisted of short interviews with 3-4 people, a case study of sorts, and ends with the opportunity to briefly shadow someone in your position currently. Ended up getting a job offer but took a different one that paid for my move to Chicago. Seemed like very long hours. Takes a while for upward mobility in the company.

    Interview Questions

    • All very standard questions. No odd curveballs. Prepare to talk extensively about any prior research.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MaPS (Waltham, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through college job site. First step was 30 minute phone interview. Next, final round interview took place at the location in Waltham. I interviewed with three different people separately, then did a quick case study that was fairly straightforward. Nothing too tricky. Finally, I "shadowed" a current Research Analyst for a short time and could ask them questions. Overall, everyone was very nice and the process was not too stressful.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at MaPS.

    Interview

    Campus recruitment, very straightforward questions. The interview only took about 20 minutes, and it was very conversational - about how you chose your college, etc. They definitely want to make sure you have some background in statistics or data analysis - just a class project is acceptable
