    I worked at Alphadetail full-time (More than a year)


    There were some interesting projects, and you learn a lot about proper survey techniques, data analysis, and business storytelling. I enjoyed the creative process of taking data and making a story from it, using logical evaluations to create suggestions for our clients.


    I felt very overworked. Towards the end of my time there, every person on was on 5 projects, each with aggressive timelines, and still wanting the same amazing level of quality that we could deliver if we were on 3 projects. It got to the point that I felt guilty and anxious for not being able to check my email and handle tasks while driving to and from the office.

    The turnover of employees was so consistent that even though the company was hiring consistently, people were leaving at the same rate.

    Advice to Management

    Having crunch times happen, but if you don't want your employees to burn out and get resentful, the level of intensity needs to oscillate.

    Market Research Associate I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Mateo, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alphadetail (San Mateo, CA).


    It started with having two hours to analyze some data from a former project and assemble a 10-20 min presentation complete with conclusions and suggestions. You'd then present and take questions and have a discussion over your findings.

    Then you interview with a few of the directors and they'll either discuss past work experience, possible work scenarios, or have you look at various forms of data presentation and see if you can discern pertinent information.

    Overall, you're looking at about a 4 hour process.

    Interview Questions

    • They showed me some graphical representations of data that I had never seen before and asked me to explain back to them what they meant. I had one that I couldn't understand. The interviewer eventually walked me through it.   Answer Question
