    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at GfK (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    First round was to understand why I would like to apply for the job and second round was a case study presentation. The interviewers also gave situation based questions to see how you would react to situations. However, the interviewers gave a very short time period to accept the offer and made the entire process very rush.

    Marketing Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Suresnes (France)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GfK (Suresnes (France)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Classique, à savoir retracer les étapes du CV à la place du recruteur en répétant le contenu de la lettre de motivation qu'il n'avait pas lu auparavant. Aucune complexité, des questions prémédités et ennuyeuses ( type 3 qualités/3defaults). J'ai passé 3 entretiens pour redire exactement les mêmes choses comme si le personnel RH de cette entreprise ne préparait pas de compte rendu des entretiens et ne prévoyait pas de monter en difficulté au fur et à mesure des étapes.

    Junior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at GfK in February 2014.

    Interview

    First step was pretty basic - I had an interview with the head of HR and we mostly talked about my personal interests and what I see myself in 3 years into the future.

    Second step - I was given some sales data where I had to find some patterns and describe them. Another bit was to make a presentation about new product of one of the consumer electronics manufacturers and make the interviewers want to put it onto the shelves of retailer they were representing during a role play.

    Over the years interviews became more complicated, but they still are more then happy to give a chance to everyone with an unorthodox problem solving solutions =)

    Interview

    Ich hatte fünf Vorstellungsgespräche, war dreimal auf meine Kosten in Nürnberg, wurde über Monate hingehalten und bekam am Ende eine lapidare zwei-Zeilen Mail als Absage.

    Mindestens skurril war eines der Gespräche für die ich nach Nürnberg kommen sollte. Der Gesprächspartner war aber im Home-Office und ich würde vor einen PC zum Skypen gesetzt.
