I worked at Kantar Worldpanel full-time (More than a year)
Good environment; many things to learn from the beginning; lots of chance for entertainment and learning and development activities; good place for fresh graduates.
Heavy workload that is quite difficult to handle at the beginning; suitable for ones with high capability of analytical and time management skill only.
Advice to Management
There should be more staff to reduce the workload so that everyone will have a chance to develop themselves and the company could have loyal and high quality employees,.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kantar Worldpanel (New York, NY).
After speaking with the recruiter on the phone, I spoke to the hiring manager for about half an hour on the phone. Within the day, I was invited in for an in-person interview with the hiring manager. The in-person interview was guided by a form which the manager filled out based on my responses. Questions were fairly typical: Why Market Research? Why Kantar? Why do I think companies should pay for Kantar's services? etc. After the interview, I was given a math assessment which I was told would take about 30 min. It took me more like 40-45 min, but I suppose I did okay because I was called back for another interview. This time, I had to present some data that the manager sent me. The presentation was on Maxwell House coffee. I presented to the hiring manager and her boss. I was not offered the job. I think where I failed was in my "storyline". I should have been more concise with which data I presented and the overall story. I sort of included too many elements.
- I hate to say that what took me off guard was the manager's desire to know my own "personal" accomplishments that I am proud of. I had read so many articles about avoiding referring to your personal life vs. academic and work achievements that I sort of froze. Answer Question
