I worked at Market Strategies InternationalPros
Generally run by acceptable business ethics.Cons
Corporate leadership is very weak and ego driven. Revenues have declined and they continue to look for people to blame or businesses to buy to prop things up. Formation of Qual business and purchase of Cogent have been failures. Junior and mid-level staff have borne the brunt of the hubris of the company (mis)managers. After several attempts over the past few years it would not be surprising if VSS sold them offDoesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Market Strategies International.Interview Details
Initial phone interview with HR to see if you were a fit for the position and company.
If you make it past the initial phone screening you'll need to go in for testing. There are a number of paper tests that you'll have to take to determine your personality type, math skills, grammar skills and editing skills. Some of these are on a computer and others are done with pen and paper. You'll be asked to edit a PowerPoint for both formatting and grammar.
Afterwards there are two rounds of close to full day interviews with a number of people including everyone on the team you'll be working with, your new potential manager, their manager, and other's you may have contact with. Expect the typical interview questions (they give these to their junior people that need to interview you) as well as get information on your background, passions and fit. There is typically a 2-3 week wait after you interview before you'll hear something. The nice thing is that you will hear something either way once they have made a decision.Interview Questions
