    Senior Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GfK (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Hired as part of an acquisition, so cannot speak to GfK process. I can say that some teams are more selective than others, interviewing for months and months before making a single hire.

    Interview Questions

    • Not sure if they still use these for entry-level, but they'll ask abstract ideas to get a feel for how you think. For example) What is the US population? Some basics on statistics are also likely to be asked.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GfK.

    Interview

    Had three interviews which were pretty standard with no real difficult questions. Some of the people that I gave as references said that the questions they were asked were really basic and didn't relate to the job in question. Also had to go back and forth a few times on the offer letter due to errors and wanting clarification in writing.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Straightforward except the process of the offer letter was a bit aggrevating,

    Senior Research Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GfK in January 2014.

    Interview

    The process was fairly straight forward. A recruiter scheduled two phone interviews with higher ups who's team I would be on. Then I had two in person interviews at the local office with the person I would report to, and their boss. Everyone was very positive and told me they would be in touch in a couple of days. Unfortunately, I never heard back after the in person interviews. I reached out to the recruiter to ask if a decision had been made and heard nothing. Very disappointing as I spent nearly 2 months going through the whole process. It would have been nice to hear formally one way or the other.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no technical questions asked. They did ask how I would feel working for someone who I felt knew less than I do.   Answer Question
