The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GfK in December 2011.

Interview Details – A series of interviews with the staff all working from a set of prepared questions. Everyone seemed very friendly and appeared like they wanted me to get the job. They had people in multiple locations so some of the interviews were in person, some were over the phone and one was done by video conference.

Interview Question – How could my last role/project have turned out better?   View Answer
