    Marketing Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at comScore (Reston, VA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, spoke to HR first followed by technical phone round with senior person in department. I got a thumbs-up to proceed to on-site but in between the role changed to add some additional requirements which I did not have too much exposure to. Instead of on-site, they wished to do a 3 hour Skype session with Collabedit. Interviewers were helpful and friendly and made me feel comfortable, but the internet connection on their end was terrible, I had to ask the interviewers to repeat every question as I barely made out what they said (which am sure would annoy anyone inside). Also a lot of questions were asked on technologies I had no experience with/not listed on my resume
    HR was helpful throughout the process. I got reject the next day after the interview as the new skills required for the job, opposed to the posting, weren't a good match to mine overall.

    Interview Questions

    • Given two tables, write some SQL queries (joins, nested select)
      Simple data structure and algorithms, OOP concepts, questions on ASP.NET and JS
      Interviews were split between behavioral and technical

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at comScore (Evansville, IN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with five different people, two over the phone and three in person, over the span of about an hour. I felt comfortable, energetic, and excited throughout the entire process. I was told to expect a response within the next two weeks, and it's been just over two weeks now so I'm still hopeful.

    Technical Project Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at comScore (Portland, OR) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It was a standard in-person interview with the hiring manager and project manager. The questions were somewhat formulaic and dealt more with project management style and approach than questions about technical skill. I was very impressed with the project manager, and we were very much on the same page. But in the end it's the hiring manager that needs to be impressed first and foremost.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at comScore (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    There are multiple rounds of interviews.

    1st round you will have a phone conversation with HR - basic info- background info ect...She is extremely nice and polite - she responds to all emails and addresses your concerns.
    2nd round you will have a phone conversation with the hiring manager (your future boss) - She is super sweet and down to earth. Conversation is very easy.
    3rd round you will meet about 5 people in your department or colleagues from other departments that you will most likely attend office meetings with. ie: VP, SVP, Sr directors et all.
    4th round you will have to present to about 10 people. Please note that after round 3, you will receive an email from HR with material that you will have to present during round 4. This includes a couple of files on the current partner (all data) and what products they are currently subscribed to - it also includes the new product (along with some data) that you will need to sale. The day you meet with the people to present your case ( it is a mock pitch to the existing client they provided in the email) make sure you stand up and speak slowly and also, make sure your presentation is at least 10-15min! mine was a bit short and I did not stand - apparently the SVP did not like that. After the presentation they ask A LOT of questions which require detailed answers (smart and quick) ie: Nielsen is doing the exact same thing- how do you compare? or How will the marketing team use the new feature?

    Side Note:
    1) If I am meeting with existing clients and I have a good rapport, I don't personally feel that I need to be presenting Comscore standing up behind a podium - I would like to talk to them like we have been partners for years and doing that definitely requires eye level contact and communication.

    2)They want you to present your case however, what they offer is pretty basic information- if you are not familiar with their products (paid version of comscore) you probably will not do very well. Without knowing their nuances you will not be able to sale.

    Associate Data Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at comScore (Reston, VA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Consisted of mostly behavioral interviews. I couldn't tell if it was because of my strong technical background or if the job required little technical experience, but the interviewers asked me primarily surface level questions. There was no real test of whether or not the information on my resume was accurate or if I had the chops to compete in the workplace. Either way, the interviewers were incredibly nice and motivated and my interview experience was absolutely wonderful overall.

    First round interview on campus with VP. Approximately 2 to 3 weeks later, I received an email inviting me to a final round interview at their D.C headquarters.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at comScore (Evansville, IN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is way below standard or par! I was working through their Recruitment company and for this instance we will leave them out of this review. So lets get started:

    The company gave me false hope that I had the position and ended up 1.5 months later not following through with their recent answer. I contacted the recruiting company about 10-12 times trying to get an answer and they stated no one from Comscore replied to his email. Today I called and told the representative from their Recruiting company that I have another offer and he FINALLY forced them to get back in touch with me. They told me they want me to work for them but they could not fit me into the budget. So wanting to work for Comscore I denied multiple higher paying jobs(the positions are now filled) so I could work for this unprofessional company.

    The management that had me come into the meeting were all very young, unprofessional, and did not represent the company very well. The company has great potential but when a 23-25 year old comes to the interview promising the world and does not have the audacity to contact you to tell you the company cannot fit me into the budget... What Professionalism!

    Here I am now in financial dire straights because this company promised me the world. Thanks Comscore, the Digital Marketing Company that I currently work for definitely will not be purchasing your half way productive sofware since the level of professionalism I have seen.
