    Sampling Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Synovate (Chicago, IL) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I initially met with 2 managers for a sampling analyst position. They offered me the job but said I was overqualified and recommended I apply for a better position. After interviewing for the better position, I never heard back from anyone at Synovate. I followed up on 3 occasions with HR, and all the individuals I interviewed with, but it was like they abruptly black listed me. I found the whole process to be highly unprofessional and rather embarrassing for their organizational structure.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you know about Synovate? What do you know about the position? How much SAS/excel/access do you use in your current position? No crazy questions, it was all pretty straightforward.   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Synovate (Chicago, IL) in June 2010.

    Interview

    The phone screen and 1:1 interviews were both very standard for a market research position. I was referred by a friend to this position. The only problem was that it took them almost a month to get back to me. Otherwise, there was really no issue.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Synovate (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Applied for the position on the 12th Oct, 2011, was called to go in for an interview on the 3rd November, 2011. Received an email that i was shortlisted on the 11th November, and was told that they are running reference check on the candidates. I wrote a mail to them to enquire about my status on the 17th November and was told that it is still in process till now.

    This is way too long a process for a middle management position and the interviewee was not familiar with the supporting documents required to be attached to resume after completion of interview.

    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Synovate in October 2011.

    Interview

    They were creating a new department for which my skills were a great fit. Initial interview was an HR screen who then arranged an interview with the hiring manager (SVP). Interviewed with the SVP once and had several subsequent phone conversations with him. SVP was very easy to talk to and we actually went over the time allotted, as we were quite engaged in how I would be an asset to this new department. He then set me up to meet his counterpart in another part of the organization, as well as the President. I was called back to fill out an application. This was a new department/position and hiring was supposed to happen in the following quarter (for budget reasons). However, they were bought by IPSOS and everything was put on hold. Many (Managing Director, VPs, et al.) assured me that I was a great fit but had to wait given the merger. Although I have described the actual interview process as generally positive, after the merger, despite several attempts to contact them, they left me hanging and I never received any communication as to my status. Needless to say, I moved on.
    Work culture seemed a little disjointed at the time. There did not seem to be a lot of interaction or team-work with other departments. I think the SVP was trying to change that with this position. Some of the other people I spoke with seemed a bit nervous about this new position, some interpreted it as a potential infringement on their territory or wanting to control it.

    • Do you know (name withheld) from your company? Of course not because your departments never talked to each other. That's why we find people from your department usually don't work out.   1 Answer
