    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at GfK (Paris (France)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Personnellement, j'ai eu un coup de fil me disant que j'avais obtenu un entretien en personne. L'entretien était assez classique. Les questions habituelles sur la société, ses valeurs, sa culture. En plus de ça des questions sur ma carrière et ce qui m'intéressait dans le poste. Au final, c'était un entretien assez facile qui ne demandait pas beaucoup de préparation.

    i personally got a a phone call saying that i am accepted to a face to face interview. the interview was very classical one.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GfK in December 2010.

    Interview

    Received a phone call from the hiring manager many months after I initially applied. Went through the interview process:
    -Filled out application when I got to the office.
    -I interviewed with four different people separately. One of the interviewers was dressed VERY unprofessionally (wearing what looked like pajama pants and an ill-fitting t-shirt (I could see her belly poking out). Right there, that got the red flag going up -- do I REALLY want to work for a company that allows their employees to come to work dressed like slobs?
    -The interviews took about 3 hours. Lots of basic research questions/behavioral questions.
    -Received offer a MONTH later. Declined it.

    Reasons for Declining

    They offered me a LOWER salary than my current job. Company also seemed extremely disorganized. Nice office though (Minneapolis)

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at GfK in October 2010.

    Interview

    I went through a recruiter who offered some good advice but essentially used the classic "you're not really right for the position" argument. The interviewers were tough but fair, offered challenging questions, and seemed generally kind. I wouldn't say it was difficult or easy as it was experiential-based.
