    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at GfK.

    Interview Details

    Hired as part of an acquisition, so cannot speak to GfK process. I can say that some teams are more selective than others, interviewing for months and months before making a single hire.

    Interview Questions
    • Not sure if they still use these for entry-level, but they'll ask abstract ideas to get a feel for how you think. For example) What is the US population? Some basics on statistics are also likely to be asked.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at GfK.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Senior Research Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at GfK in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was fairly straight forward. A recruiter scheduled two phone interviews with higher ups who's team I would be on. Then I had two in person interviews at the local office with the person I would report to, and their boss. Everyone was very positive and told me they would be in touch in a couple of days. Unfortunately, I never heard back after the in person interviews. I reached out to the recruiter to ask if a decision had been made and heard nothing. Very disappointing as I spent nearly 2 months going through the whole process. It would have been nice to hear formally one way or the other.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no technical questions asked. They did ask how I would feel working for someone who I felt knew less than I do.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GfK in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Series of phone interviews, followed by Video interviews at HQ in Chicago for a position in WA. They cancelled the final interview under the guise of a rescheduling, but it never got rescheduled. I reached out to them after a few days and they responded only through a form-email informing me they would not go forward with interview process. Impersonal end to an otherwise good experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were relatively straightforward for an interview - they asked "What is your favorite scale and why?"   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southfield, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at GfK.

    Interview Details

    Applied online in early December 2012, heard back in mid January with a quick phone screen followed quickly with an invite to come in and interview. Had 3 one hour interviews with 3 separate people. Was told they would make a decision in 2-3 days. Didn't hear anything, so I called the HR rep who set up the interview a week later and left a message. Never heard back. After 3 weeks I left a message with the person who I would have worked for, only to get a call from the HR rep an hour later saying they had gone with another candidate.
