I have been working at Kantar Worldpanel full-time (More than 5 years)
Kantar Worldpanel is great for its people. Everyone is super friendly, supportive and helpful and pretty quickly your colleagues become friends! The social scene is amazing, getting the company together to celebrate success and reward employees from drinks on a Friday to street food trucks at lunch time. Best place I've worked at!
The only con would be the location in Hanger Lane, but once you're in the office you forget where you are as the interior is so fun!
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Kantar Worldpanel (London, England) in February 2018.
3. Phone interview
4. Assessment Day
I had a fantastic experience with Kantars recruitment process, even better than ones I had with their competitors. So it starts with an application and if you pass the initial screening you’re invited to take some tests which were the same really as any other companies tests, verbal and numerical. Next was the phone interview which lasted roughly 30 min. The interviewer was great and nice to talk to. Why Kantar Worldpanel, what is a panel, what does Kantar Worldpanel do, why market research, what would you do if a client wanted to move up a deadline, what’s your favourite brand and why, what are some current trends in the market. Do research on Kantar Worlpanel specifically, take a look at their website, watch some of their industry videos, learn who some of their clients are. About a week later I was invited to the assessment centre which took place at Emirates Stadium from 8am-5pm and there were 100 people there. It started with a presentation by Kantar WP where they discussed the programme and what its like to work there. Before the assesmenent we were given a presentation brief on the cereal market which we were asked to give a presentation on at the assessment centre although the presentation itself was due two weeks before the actual assessment day. My advice is to spend lots and lots of time on this, dont include anything on your slides you wouldnt be able to be asked questions about and really use their data to support your recommendations. After the presentation we had about 25 min of questions regarding the presentation. Next, was a shopping basket excercise which is all about showing your team work skills. After lunch they asked roughly half of us to leave if they did not make it to the afternoon. Lastly we had 1 to 1 interviews which lasted an hour and really asked STAR like questions. Overall, was a fantastic day. It was challenging and nerve racking but Kantar WP did a great job of organising the day and making everyone feel comfortable.
