    Associate Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at comScore in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was the reason I chose comScore. The recruiters truly care about creating the best teams possible and will go beyond the minimum to make it happen. The recruiters I spoke with - Pete and Jackie- took the time to understand me as a candidate and made sure I would be a great fit with the team. When I initially applied for another role (a role I wasn't fully qualified for), rather than completely reject me, Pete remembered my interview and sent my info to another recruiter who had a role available (that better fit my qualifications). Because of this extra step he took, I was able to interview for a position that was a better fit for me. The recruiters always followed up with me in a timely manner and made the interview to hiring process extremely simple.
    The team itself was extremely welcoming during the interview process, and they asked both skill and personality based questions to ensure I would be a good fit for the team.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at comScore (Reston, VA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter rescheduled a phone call with me but never got back to me. I sent follow-up emails to see if something went wrong and tried to continue the conversation but there was no reply at all.

    I specifically took a day off for the rescheduled phone screening. However, it turned out to be unpleasant experience. Seems like the recruiter is unprofessional and showed little respect to candidates. Time wasted...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at comScore in November 2016.

    Interview

    Went in for an in person interview with a group panel from the department. I was asked basic and work experience questions. Overall, the interview was laid back and had a good experience. I was told that I will get a follow up within a few days of the hiring decision. True to their words, they followed up with a nice email of their decision. Most employers nowadays doesn't even follow up after the interview. Even though I did not get the offer, I have a positive experience with the company.

    Senior Survey Research Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at comScore in November 2016.

    Interview

    Received a phone call from a comScore recruiter in Portland, OR a couple of days after applying on their website. After discussing my 15 years of experience in research, and seeming to be interested in my accomplishments, she grew bothered by my lack of a college degree. Coupled with her inability to answer some rather basic questions, the recruiter said she has been a recruiter at comScore for only three months and could answer only one of my six questions about the position and company. The only one she could answer was when they are looking at filling the position (ASAP, of course). Then she mentioned again about the lack of education. Not just a negative experience with a recruiter, but soured my opinion about comScore.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at comScore (Reston, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The Principal Technical Recruiter and HR team made sure everything was smooth and that the process was crystal clear. I was referred by an employee at comScore. The interview process started with the Principal Technical Recruiter asking a few questions relating to my background and skills. Later I was briefed on what the team excepts from a potential candidate. Then after a week I got a thumbs up and was asked to schedule for a phone screen interview. The interviewer was a Senior Software Engineer and the interview was on coding (Java). The question asked was to write a program to find if two given strings are Anagrams. There are multiple solutions and I came with the one that had best time complexity, then interviewer asked if I can do better on space complexity. After that a discussion followed on which of the solutions would be better under what circumstances. NOTE: This was coding intensive round and the code typed is expected to run with minimum errors. There was an option to choose from an IDE platform to code but I choose the non-IDE one. The interview lasted for 45-60 mins. The next day I got a reply from the Principal Technical Recruiter and was told that I did well and that the team wanted to schedule a face to face interview at their HQ's in Reston. The on-site interview had 5 technical rounds with 4 of them being on Algorithms, data structures and Big-Data and the other round was on Machine Learning. Questions were asked on linked-Lists, Trees, Stacks, Lists, Sets, Maps, MapReduce, data types (primitive, Wrapper and Box), Pig and other brain teasers. The team that interviewed me was great and very friendly but technical intense. Once the interview was done I was briefed of the next steps and told that a decision would be given in the next 3 days and they did send me out an offer letter on the third-day.

    Benefits: They offered more than what I asked for with all the benefits, also the company sponsors H1B which is great. They try their best to give any other allowances that a candidate needs.

    TIP: Be prepared. They won't ask anything that is not on the job description or that isn't on your resume.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at comScore.

    Interview

    Was referred by an employee and received a call from the recruiter about a week after submitting my application. Had a very simple phone conversation about qualifications/background. All went well, and she said she would set up time for me to speak to the hiring manager the following week. It's been three weeks now and she hasn't responded to any of my emails. I would have appreciated an email if things had changed instead of being left in the dark.
