    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Millward Brown.

    Interview Details

    I initially contacted my connection at Millward Brown and this person helped me get an interview with the team with which I would be interning. I sent over my resume and cover letter. A recruiter contacted me a couple weeks later to schedule a Skype call with a few people on the team.

    The call was with 4 members on the team, each interview lasting 30 minutes. Most of the time, they explained their positions and what I would be doing. They asked me how I could apply my background to what I would be doing. It was pretty relaxed. A week later, I got a phone call from the recruiter offering me the position.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Millward Brown in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by HR after submitting an application online. After the screener interview I was asked to take an online personality test prior to another interview, which I thought was pretty strange. I did, and obviously passed, after which I interviewed with two VPs of sales from two separate divisions. Those interviews went swimmingly, so the last one was the overall head of sales in North America. He told me this was more of an informal Q&A for him to give "feedback" to the team. It started well but about halfway through it appeared that something made him immediately lose interest in me and the air went out of the conversation. Sure enough, the next day I received the email from HR saying they were taking a pass. The whole thing from start to finish was pretty quick--probably a week or just over.

    Interview Questions
    • The psychological test was very odd. Often you were presented with a forced choice between two unattractive options yet had to select one. Frequently one of those unwanted options would reappear in numerous later questions even if you had rejected it before, meaning at some point you'd probably be forced to pick it.   View Answer

    Associate Client Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Millward Brown in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went in from a referral from an internal resource; phone interview was great. I met with two people, one of whom was a different person entirely than I had been told about. The new person conducted a great interview, but the second was with a person in charge of the division. They were not interested at all, I am not sure why they drug out the interview so long as it was clear they were not going to hire me. All I received was monotone one word responses to everything I said.

    Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Millward Brown in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with MB Optimor.

    Very unprofessional experience. In the round of phone interview, the interviewer was changed without any notification and didn't mention who he is during the conversation. Moved into the second round of interview, which was scheduled in the office with 6 people - non of them were available and so was arranged someone randomly for a short talk. Obviously this unknown interviewer was totally not in the mood to interview, very unprofessional & inexperienced: keep checking his phone, yawning, snobbish, didn't ask any meaningful questions. Supposed to have a case interview but did not happen at all.

    HR informed me that he will reschedule the interviews to the following week, however after waiting for 5 days I was told that they decided to close the interview process. No reasons. I was not even able to speak with any of the planned interviewers. Interviewed with junior people in the firm who was just recently graduated. While this Associate position has such a high turnover rate (lots of previous Associates left within one year), I guess there must be a reason in the selection process.

    Supplement information: long working hours (until 10pm or even midnight), heavy workload, office is small and not a good vibe. I do not mind of all of those, but I do care about the basic respects.

    In a nutshell, what mentioned in the previous reviews were true - unprofessional, not responsible, and not respectful.

    Analyst At Millward Brown Optimor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Millward Brown.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter contacted me to set up a phone interview. But no one called me at the scheduled time or any other time. Despite my attempts to get in touch with the recruiter over phone and email, never heard back from them to reschedule or even any explanation about why no one called me. Seems very unprofessional and arrogant or maybe they don't care about the candidates at all.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Millward Brown in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    2 Phone interviews, 2 in person interviews (originally 3), 1 case study with benchmarks and presentation. They give you an ad and then the information collected from the ad to make a quick presentation (about 10 minutes long). They will ask questions (why did you point out the differences between age groups). All interviewers went through my resume and asked questions such as "Tell me about a time you dealt with a difficult client" , "Why Millward Brown". The phone interview emphasizes your presentation skills and frequency, analysis and client service skills.
