    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GfK.

    Interview

    Had three interviews which were pretty standard with no real difficult questions. Some of the people that I gave as references said that the questions they were asked were really basic and didn't relate to the job in question. Also had to go back and forth a few times on the offer letter due to errors and wanting clarification in writing.

    Straightforward except the process of the offer letter was a bit aggrevating,
