    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at YouGov (New York, NY) in May 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was quick and efficient. It involved a phone screen with an HR recruiter, then a phone call with the head of the department I'd be working with, then an in-person interview with a few of the people that I would be working with.
