    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kantar (Worldpanel Division) (London, England) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Online test, video interview (company knowledge, personality, situational questions), assessment center (group task, 2:1 presentation on FMCG trends, 2:1 final interview, mostly situational questions, personality evaluation). The AC day was really long, from 9am-6pm, but the staffs were very helpful.

    14 May 2020 – Media Communications Manager

    Thanks for your feedback and for raising the issue about reimbursing travel expenses. Unfortunately a small number of people were impacted as the transfers were rejected by the bank. We’re resolving these right now and will be ensuring the payments get to people as quickly as possible. We apologise to anyone who this has happened to.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Phone interview, group interview, large task (60 slides of charts to analyze and develop new presentation from, then present it), math test.

    People were super nice but it was very upsetting when something that was moving so quickly and I was TOLD I was the selected candidate, but suddenly I had no updates for a month until the recruiter finally told me the position was on hold. Interviews/tasks took a lot of time and it was upsetting to not have much transparency and be so let down.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kantar (Worldpanel Division) (New York, NY (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the job and received a call to come for an interview. The interview was about doing a presentation from a set of date given by interviewer. It was difficult but made it through. The final stage was to present my work online to a panel of interviewers. After sometime I was told that I was successful.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kantar (Worldpanel Division) (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    After speaking with the recruiter on the phone, I spoke to the hiring manager for about half an hour on the phone. Within the day, I was invited in for an in-person interview with the hiring manager. The in-person interview was guided by a form which the manager filled out based on my responses. Questions were fairly typical: Why Market Research? Why Kantar? Why do I think companies should pay for Kantar's services? etc. After the interview, I was given a math assessment which I was told would take about 30 min. It took me more like 40-45 min, but I suppose I did okay because I was called back for another interview. This time, I had to present some data that the manager sent me. The presentation was on Maxwell House coffee. I presented to the hiring manager and her boss. I was not offered the job. I think where I failed was in my "storyline". I should have been more concise with which data I presented and the overall story. I sort of included too many elements.

    Interview Questions

    • I hate to say that what took me off guard was the manager's desire to know my own "personal" accomplishments that I am proud of. I had read so many articles about avoiding referring to your personal life vs. academic and work achievements that I sort of froze.   Answer Question
