I have been working at dunnhumby full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
The company can be a rewarding place to work with regard to life/work balance, benefits and resume visibility. Grade 7 managers seem to be very open and transparent; the abilities of managers declines quickly at grade 5 and below. Perks include social activities, on-site gyms, generous vacation structure, opportunities to volunteer locally and ability to work offsite.Cons
There is a propensity to value youth over experience.
Many mid to upper level managers (grades 4 to 6) are not trained as managers, and it is quite apparent.
No redress for issues with a very unhelpful and unprofessional HR department.
Some managers known for bullying, intimidation and lack of respect for employees are free to continue these practices.
Too much "forced" conviviality and partying; pay more attention to work and deliverables.
Difficult and unequal promotion processes.
constantly reduced personal workspace (communal, open plan fosters collaboration but makes concentration difficult, privacy impossible and personal space non-existent.
Very noticeable cliques of senior managers with tenure over 7 years (USA in particular); if you're not on the inside, you never will be.
Dismissals can be indiscriminate, and no redress is possibleAdvice to ManagementAdvice
stricter reviews and oversight of managers (particularly grade 4 and 5)
more training of managers and better on boarding for new hires
make HR responsive and more confidential
stop the emphasis on alcohol consumption (even in jest, drinking to excess IS a common theme, and encouraged)
too many meetings, team-building and "innovation" daysRecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO

Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at dunnhumby.Interview Details
Applied online through campus recruiting, talked to recruiters at career fair, and went to call out event. Also took an IQ-like test as part of the application.
I got an interview on campus (seems like for people at smaller schools this tends to be a phone interview) where they asked me about my experience with using excel and other data analysis tools. Being able to code was definitely a plus.
I was asked to go for a second round interview at their HQ in Cincinnati. They're building a new one set to open this summer, but they showed us around anyway. We had to do a case interview, behavioral interview, and group task for the actual interview.
Waited a couple weeks and received a call that I received an offer.Interview Questions
