    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Mintel (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.


    Phone Interview- In person Interview- Mock Email Role Play- 2nd In person Interview ( job shadow, Mock Cold Call Role Play, Interview with VP of Sales.

    Phone interview and 1st in person were pretty standard. Just questions about your experience and going over resume. Then comes Mock Email you do at home that is pretty straight forward. Final in person involves a job shadow for 30 minutes. Then using the same scenario you used in the Mock Email, you have a role play with the hiring managers across a table that I felt was very awkward and it showed during the exercise. Then I was suppose to meet with the VP of sales and was left alone in the room for 10 minutes until the hiring manager came back in and told me the VP went home sick. I knew right then that the awkward role play call had ruined my chances at this job and I was no longer in contention.

    Interview Questions

    • Why you apply to Mintel? Why you like Sales? What do you know about the job already? Resume questions ?
      Mock Cold Call tips- Dont study the Overview they give you. That was my problem. Just leave it light and try and use what they have told you during the first interview and the job shadow before hand to guide you through.
