    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Kantar.

    Interview

    Recruitment process is easy. First stage consists of a numeric test. Second stage is an assessment day moderated by a panel of interviewers. Personality tests, essays and presentations as well as an individual interview with the panel make up this assessment day. The process is enjoyable and stimulating however the rest of the programme does not live up to these standards.

    Interview

    Quickly released the shortlist and contacted interviewees after the application deadline. Initially interview consisted of a 40 minute telephone conversation with set questions. The interviewers were friendly and chatty and seemed very interested in potential rather than existing technical knowledge. This was followed up with proficiency tests (maths and reasoning) and an invitation to a selection day.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kantar (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email inviting me for an interview about a week later. I met with one of the recruiters. This goes down as the most unusual interview I've ever had. He literally talked incessantly for over an hour. He would ask a question and then answer it himself by saying “and where I’m coming from with that is…” or “because the way it would happen here is...” And then he’d ask another question and answer himself. And on it went. About an hour in he suggested that I send my resume to one of their competitors. It was pretty clear from that comment that I wasn’t going to get hired there so the next time he came up for air I thanked him for his time and started putting my resume folder away. He got the message I guess because he stood up. But then he took me for a 15 minute tour around the office space showing me where all the different teams sat, etc. The whole thing was just plain weird. And based on my experience I don’t think I’ll apply there again.
