Project Analyst Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Kantar Retail in November 2013.

Interview Details – They came to my university (they were an hour late). Had an interview with for 30 minutes. Interviewer was young and a bit timid. But he was a really nice guy. Normal questions about why Kantar, eg ... how did I handle a tough group situation? and my favorite brand? -- and why? ...Got second round interview. I was interviewed over the phone. They sent a power point slide, with normal things they do at Kantar -- and asked me to analyze it. While simple, they were tricky. It is consulting after all. I thought I did terribly in that interview. They called me for a final round interview. However, that was after a month and a half and I had forgotten about them (If i had a job I wouldnt have even replied to their invitation).... went to the final round. Day long. 3 interviews, math test and group interview... They rejected me at the end -- it was Sad cause I did not have a job at that time.

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Kantar Retail in April 2013.

Interview Details – First had a behavioral interview with pretty standard questions. The second round consisted of a case study. A powerpoint was sent over and I had 15 minutes to look it over. I was then asked some pretty difficult questions, but I think they really just want to see how you can work through the thought process of answering the questions. The last round consisted of 6 behavioral like interviews with 1 or 2 people and a quantitative test with GMAT style questions. Seemed like an attractive position but had another offer.

Interview Question – They asked me to explain the slides (many graphs) in a powerpoint in the second round. I worked through most of the slides and solved them while talking to the interviewer.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Kantar Retail.

Interview Details – Kantar came to our college campus for an info session, so I applied through the school career services. I had my first 1:1 campus interview in early October, second-round phone interview a month after that, and was called back to Wilton headquarters for a full day interview about two weeks later. In another two weeks I was offered the job.
The second round interview I was given a few market study slides that I had to analyze in 40 minutes. For the final round, I had three back-to-back interviews with current employees plus a math test.

Interview Question – One morning, your direct boss gives you an assignment that only you can finish, and it needs to be done before 5pm. Later in the day, the CEO gives you a special assignment that needs to be done before 4pm. You cannot possibly finish both projects in time. Both are very important projects and only you are capable of doing the both. What do you do?   Answer Question

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Kantar Retail in December 2011.

Interview Details – It was a full day filled with 6 thirty minute interviews. Pretty standard stuff and only one person tried to shake it up with a brain teaser(the old use 3 gallon and 5 gallon jugs to get 4 gallons of water) and a small case study like question about, what else, grocery store inventory. There was a written test straight from the GMAT math section in the middle and a paid lunch. Overall everyone was and friendly, but Wilton, CT is such a drag.
