    Market Research Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waterloo, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waterloo, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Manulife Financial in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Received an email to set up an interview appointment. So there was no initial screening phone interview. 2 persons panel. One was the most senior guy in the team and the other was a lady who had been working for over a decade as a Junior Consultant. This puzzled me a lot that why someone with so many years of experience is not being promoted to the Consultant position, simply. Perhaps hours issue.

    Job title and job description were not matching the actual requirements of the role. They needed a project manager more than a research consultant.

    Interview Questions
    • Talk about project management experience
      Show that you can handle the logistics part of the research as well as the analysis and report writing
