    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at RPA (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Interviewed with the associate director of the team and then with the VP at a later date. I was in another city so I interviewed over Skype. Both interviews were very conversational. Walked through my background, what interested me in the position, and asked for examples that applied to the job description.

    Interview Questions

    • What programs/tools do you use for analyzing data?   Answer Question
    • Can you give an example of a time when you had to present a report to a client or creative team where the results weren't the best? How did you handle the situation?   Answer Question
