    Research Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stax, Inc. (Boston, MA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    First received a phone call from the recruiter in the Boston office. The phone call was less "interview" focused as the recruiter took considerable time to explain the nature of the role (i.e. a lot of phone calls to industry figureheads and logging them) and the contracting type of employment (i.e. called in for projects based on availability and individual performance). We scheduled an in-person interview a week later at the end of the phone call.

    The in-person interview was conducted with the recruiter and a full-time research associate (RA). Similar to the phone call, the recruiter and RA focused on trying to "sell" me on the role. While I felt like I had little opportunity (the RA did a lot of the talking), the experience was very friendly and positive; I never felt like I was on the defensive. When I was asked about my experience, I was asked to describe my experience with primary research for approximately 3 minutes.

    I received an offer that day a few hours after the interview, but I ultimately turned it down as I was looking for consistent, full-time work and hands on consulting. If one is in need of a filler in-between jobs, however, it perhaps wouldn't be a bad opportunity to consider or pursue.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stax, Inc. (Boston, MA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The first step was an initial phone interview, very straight forward. The next steps are in person interviews at their office. They make things very comfortable and they get back to you very quickly. I heard back within a couple days at the most. The first in person interview with the director of HR was very similar to the phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly about your experience and your ability to make phone calls. They also ask about the direction you see your career going.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stax, Inc. (Boston, MA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I first had a telephone interview with an individual who supervised all the research associates. It lasted about 20 minutes. The individual was very friendly and took the time to understand my resume and thoroughly explain the job to me. About a week later, had an in-person interview with the manager of HR. This lasted about 30 minutes and was very similar to the phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to describe an instance in which I performed primary research, the methodology I used, and the results I obtained.   1 Answer

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Stax, Inc..

    Interview

    Took about two weeks. I was referred for the role. The hr person was really nice at the beginning but took two weeks to let me know they were not going to hire me. I guess I should be happy they even told me, right?

    I didn't like the company when I went in. They let me wait for 10 min at the door without anyone greeting me even thought 5 different people saw me standing. Also, I was never told who I would interview with so they randomly send people in. After the first person left I knew I was not getting the job because they sent in two junior people and one of them kept yawning.

    Interview

    Behavioral Questions. Easy to understand. Just be yourself
    Questions from both HR and current associate, not much to think about just your experiences and skills. Phone interview first, than in-person interview at their office
