J.D. Power – Why Work For Us?

Be the Voice of the Customer.

At J.D. Power, you’ll be at a worldwide leader of marketing information services, providing an unbiased view of the Voice of the Customer to businesses and consumers alike.

  • If you have a passion for translating raw data into compelling intelligence that improves lives, your career will flourish here.

  • We understand the value that our associates provide for our clients and for the company, and encourage innovative thinking that addresses the lastest industry and technological developments.
  • At J.D. Power, you’ll work in a flexible, friendly, collaborative environment.

J.D. Power believes strongly in the importance of corporate values. Our commitment to our core values of Integrity, Independence and Impact enhances our ability to motivate, empower, and enable our associates to create innovative products and services and delight our customers.

Integrity starts with the rigor and quality of our research methodologies and processes. It is reflected in the way we manage and protect our clients’ information and in survey respondents’ personally identifiable information; as well as in the firewalls we maintain between syndicated research operations and our proprietary performance-improvement initiatives and between our research sales activities and our brand licensing discussions. Integrity is reflected in our alignment with our strategic intent, which is grounded in the relevance and value of our research and is not driven solely by brand licensing opportunities.


Independence is reflected in our ability to tell it like it is.  We will not allow our study results to be influenced by the industries we serve. Our rankings are based on the Voice of the Customer, not on our opinions. Our independence is also reflected in the self-funded nature of our research, and in our use of appropriate and representative sample for our surveys.  Most importantly, our independence is reflected in ensuring that our products and services are available to all industry players and not limited exclusively to any one client. 


Impact is reflected in the way our research, advisement, and real-time transaction information are embedded into the operational fabric of the companies that subscribe to our products and services. Impact refers to our ability to accelerate and amplify the Voice of the Customer through our media relations efforts and our brand licensing activities, which help raise awareness of quality and customer satisfaction benchmarks for all companies to achieve.

  1. Featured Interview


    PIN Business Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at J.D. Power (Detroit, MI) in December 2016.


    I got referred by the HR director of the company (with whom I got in touch through LinkedIn). Within 2 weeks, I had a phone screening with the Director of PIN Consulting and Analytics. The interview was mainly to guage my career interests and how can I be a good fit for the role. Second interview was also telephonic and mainly revolved around the automotive project I did during my previous work experience. Third round was case round. I was given 4 business cases via email and 1 hour to solve, after they called me over webex to discuss the case solutions. This round mainly focused on analytical ability, critical thinking and time management skills.

    Although I did not get an offer but I had a very positive experience about the company and people who work there. I would definitely want to be a part of the firm some day.
