    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at GfK (Moscow (Russia)).

    Interview

    I met with HR, it was quite a relaxed interview. Right from the start they gave me 4 questions based on a set of tables with lots of irrelevant information and I needed to calculate sales, etc information. They also gave me a market sizing case, it was ok. The second half of the interview we discussed mostly my skills, knowledge of the industry. Also they asked a few behavioral and fit questions which was easy to answer.
