    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Danone in January 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring process was rather simple. First, HR interview, then an interview with who became my boss. The whole process took about a month. I got hired as an outsourced employee and I was supposed to be on trial for one year. After that, I got "promoted" into an internal employee.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really. Just specific but very basic questions about market research and motivation to work in market research   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no much negotiation. Danone is not known for being able to negotiate.

    Sales and Marketing Graduate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Danone (Ealing, England (UK)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The turn around from my initial application to the assessment centre (AC) was quite quick. This was because they had room for one more graduate on the current year's intake, I was therefore shortlisted (even though I had applied for next year's intake) because I had already graduated.

    Up until the AC the application process was quite short. After submitting my application I just had to complete numerical and verbal reasoning tests, I was then immediately through to the AC. About a week before the event I had a conference call with the other candidates outlining what the AC was going to consist of, as well as research preparation I was expected to carry out.

    The AC consisted of two group activities, further numerical and verbal reasoning tests, as well as a competency based interview. I did not make it through to the second half of the day, so only participated in the testing and one group activity.

    I was quite disappointed not to get through, which I was told was due to my performance in the one group activity. Their graduate scheme seemed very good, lots of perks/freebies, great work-life balance and a good salary. I had a feedback call about a week later outlining why I had not been offered the role.
