Qualitative Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at TNS Global

Interview Details – Initial communications took place over email. I was asked back for one interview at the office. The interview took about 30 minutes, after which I was asked if I had any questions. The interviewer then showed me around the office and introduced me to the staff. This particular office had a friendly, inviting, comfortable atmosphere and it contained a very small staff size.

Interview Question – Explain how your college major (mine was non-business related) prepared you for this position.   Answer Question

Market Research Analyst Interview

Market Research Analyst

Interviewed at TNS Global

Interview Details – I had three round interviews. The 1st round is phone interview by HR. It is only about some basic information check. The 2nd round is with function dept, one director, two managers and one senior executive. There are questions like what you have learned about market research, why you want to step into the industry, what work style you would prefer etc. The last round is with dept leader, a senior director. She gave me a characteristic test and introduced some about the industry.

Interview Question – There are not very technical questions as it is just an entry level job interview. The characteristic test is most unexpected one.   Answer Question

Research Manager Interview

Research Manager
London, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TNS Global in January 2010.

Interview Details – I had only one interview with a panel of two (one director and your line manager). Standard questions about back-ground, why TNS, salary expectation, etc. Then timed verbal (logic statements) and numerical tests (can practice these online beforehand).

Interview Question – Nothing that really stands out. Maybe a question about previous experience with statistical packages (ie. SPSS).   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Through a recruitment agent. The response was quick and negotiated up my initial salary expectation price.
