    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GfK.

    Interview

    The process started with a telephone interview with an HR recruiter. Fairly standard questions. Then I was invited to come into an office for an in-person interview.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GfK (Wayne, PA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was offered a phone interview a few days later. I spoke on the phone with HR and was offered an in person interview for the following week. The interview process took about 3 hours. I spoke to one person in-person and four via Lync call/video. There was also a task at the end of the interview that was pretty simple if you know simple math and understand how to present data. I was offered the job less than a week later by receiving a call and then an offer letter via email.

    Interview Questions

    • General interview questions. Wanted to know why I wanted to work here and in this field. They really want you to understand that it's an entry level position but they want to promote you and give you all the means to do so.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GfK (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The office was a very nice and clean space. The office in Manhattan was very big and right next to the world trade center. The interview was very easy. My interviewer asked me to walk him through my resume. Then proceeded to ask me a few behavioral questions. There were very striaght forward questions like, tell me about an experience where you overcame an obstacle.

    Project Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GfK (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Was not much of what one might expect from a staffing agency directly linked to a company. Staffing company apparently does most of the hiring & process seems very basic & underated

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GfK (San Francisco, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Two rounds of the phone interviews by Sr. VPs, followed by an in-person interview in the SFO office. GFK is largely a market research shop thats trying to position itself as a strategic company. During the interview process, it was clear that their preference was for someone with an extensive market research experience, that begs the question how is GfK different from many other market research shops.

    After the in-person interview, I got a surprise call from the HR - almost after a month of no response. The call, it turns out, was a behavioral interview.

    Good to join if you are interested in developing reports from primary research.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GfK (New York, NY) in May 2015.
