    Market Research Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lightspeed Research (Bellevue, WA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back shortly after. The whole process took about three weeks. Had a short phone interview with the recruiter and then a half hour phone interview with the hiring manager all within a week. I was brought in for a two hour in person interview at their Bellevue office (3 rounds of two interviewers each). Interviewers were two hiring managers, the operations manager, and then two senior level project managers. The interview was very straight forward - experience, what draws you to the role, what do you look for in a work environment, etc. Had a phone call with the hiring manager for some follow up questions two days later and received an offer the following week. Overall process was very professional and quick. Hiring managers were personable and easy to talk to. The recruiter for the company was fantastic and quick to get back with questions and updates even during off hours.
