Graduate Trainee Market Insight Analyst Interview

Graduate Trainee Market Insight Analyst

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Kantar Worldpanel.

Interview Details – Completed their online application form and then a reasoning test. The reasoning test was quite time-pressured and I didn't finish it, but they phoned me a few days later to arrange a phone interview. I missed the HR person's calls a couple of times and always called back promptly - but she never answered when I did so there was a bit of an absurd back-and-forth chain of voicemail messages. Nevertheless, we arranged a time for the phone interview and I spent a good deal of time preparing for it. However, when the time came, nobody called me - no explanation, no apology, nothing. I called the HR person again to very politely request another time, but she never returned my call. Won't be applying to them again - it doesn't bode well if they treat their applicants with this little respect, in my view.

Interview Question – Online reasoning test was quite time-pressured   Answer Question
