Graduate Trainee Program Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at TNS Global in June 2014.
Interview Details – Applied for the Graduate Trainee Position through the company website. Got an email with an invitation for the next step which was to complete a numerical reasoning test. After than another email was sent which was for a phone interview. The interview lasted about 20 minutes - Questions were about list you favourite brand, why you like it (i.e. the brand's strength), what challenges this brand is facing right now. More questions followed on the company i.e. Why TNS, what do you know about market research and what does TNS do. Also some situational questions like how would you cope with a deadline driven environment and what if a deadline was pushed back.
The next step if successful is an invitation to the Assessment Centre. Once invited more online tests have to be complete which are verbal reasoning, checking and personality.
The content of Assessment Centre is as follows:
Introductory presentation about TNS, the Graduate opportunities, training & development
Following the welcome presentation:
• Competency Based Interview
• Data Exercise, this is an in house exercise with no preparation required.
The Interview was very long taken by two people. Lots of competency based situational questions such as how would people describe you, describe situation in which you had to improvise etc. The data exercise ends with an individual presentation on the results found given to two people. If successful in these two, you are asked to remain for the day and complete another task. I was unsuccessful after this stage.
