    Research Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Schulman Ronca (West Long Branch, NJ) in January 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was a mix of basic skills (in order to do the job) and open-ended questions. It was pretty simple and any professional level person should do just fine.

    I would characterize the interview as very informal, but if I was going to interview for this job again, I would learn as much about the position as possible and decide which skills in my history were a match for the position. For example, since the position for which I applied was a telephone research interview position, I would highlight those jobs in my career history with an emphasis on sales skills, or outright sales. While the Research Associate position is not itself sales, I noticed that many of the skills are the same, as in piquing someone's interest, keeping them on the phone, and selling them on the importance of the call.

    Following a short phone screen and an in-person interview, there's a paid training that lasts for a couple of days. I mention it since it is understood that successfully completing the training is a part of the interview and hiring process. There is a written test, but most professionals should have no trouble learning the requisite skills and information and passing the test.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to read a sample script, like the kind research associates have to read when conducting a research interview. Also, I was asked to spell a few words along with some other basic skills.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Schulman Ronca (Fort Myers, FL).

    Interview

    Hiring is done on-line. Advertises on Craigslist.org. If one can spell ok and can work on a computer, you're almost guaranteed being hired. Training involves sessions of 3-5 days. Once in the field, you are on probation for 30 days where you have to get permission from a supervisor to enter certain things on your computer. Workers are constantly bored in the job and seek to go on cell phones, read, or talk to neighbors, all forbidden. Many eat at their desks, including supervisors (also forbidden) Smoking breaks are ignored as a break.

    Interview Questions

    • Call dispositions. Each call is to be categorized (ans. machine, no answer, etc) but some categories are ill defined and are difficult to categorize.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Schulman Ronca (Silver Spring, MD) in October 2011.

    Interview

    After applying online, was contacted by email for a phone interview. The phone interview consisted of a recitation of prior relevant work experience. I was then asked to come in to the office for a face-to-face interview with her supervisor. The 1:1 interview consisted of more technical questions concerning survey research experience and experience with SPSS. Both interviewers were very candid about the office culture and the job and the interviews were very relaxed. I was told I would hear back in a week or so about their decision, but I did not hear back. Overall, a good interview experience, however I wish I would have been contacted about their decision since they said that they would.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Schulman Ronca in October 2008.

    Interview

    I was directed to the job by an employer at my University where I was not hired due to budget shortfalls. After applying online I got an email from the woman performing the hiring thanking me for applying and that they would be contacting candidates a few weeks after the deadline. I got a phone call a few weeks later and they wanted to set up a phone interview whenever I was available. The phone interview consisted of traditional questions, nothing out of the ordinary. After the interview I was called back a few days to a week later and informed that they would like me to start soon, which ended up being a month and a half later at my behest, and to go over a few details such as pay. I also insisted on meeting them all face to face before starting.

    Interview Questions

    • If we were to call your references, would they say that you are reliable?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Since it was an internship there wasn't much negotiation. I was offered $12 an hour but managed to bump it up to $12.50 due to a miscommunication. I've since learned that this company has very generous compensation, and will usually give more than you even ask for (being an internship mine was more of an exception), so shoot for the stars in salary negotiations!
