    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kantar Health.

    Interview

    Step 1, HR phone interview (screening). HR is trying to see whether you are a potential fit for the job
    Step 2, Hiring manager interview (screening). Hiring manager talks to a few to get a short list of candidates to run by the team
    Step 3, interviews with team, either one or one or with a panel of 2 or more. Primarily used to assess team fit in terms of soft and hard skills
    Step 4, presentation on topic. This is the primary gauge of your research and job skills. You are unlikely to get the job if you do not do a good job on the presentation

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kantar Health in January 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview, series of tests then skype interview. Tests were difficult and you should plan on being alone in a quiet space where you can concentrate while you take them. The interview mostly concentrated on language and computer skills. It would be helpful to brush up on Microsoft Office skills before applying.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kantar Health.

    Interview

    First there are 3 online exams: logic, verbal, and math. take your time - they are not difficult but have many traps.

    After if you pass the exams you will have an interview with the Director, Business Director and HR.

    1hr of a "case study" analyzing slides and looking for numbers or data that do not make sense - essentially looking for errors.

    Market Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kantar Health (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The application process went through a recruiter. The experience was a mixture of positive and negative aspects.

    Stages:
    1) phone screen by recruiter
    2) interview with manager
    3) accuracy, and translation tests
    4) psychometric assessment online
    5) interview with panel
    6) another translation test
    7) conversation/interview with team

    First interview was a standard interview covering background, relevant skills & experience.

    The psychometric test was a PPA assessment.

    The translation and accuracy tests were purely paper-based and I feel that they were not in depth enough, and not exactly reflective of the skills needed to do the job.

    The second interview in front of the panel covered some of the questions from the first interview, but focussed mostly on the results of the psychometric test.

    The process was very intense, and asked deep psychological questions, rather than job- and skill based ones.

    A selection of questions included trust, frustrations in last role, negative feedback in last role (I did not receive any negative one- which was itself frustrating), and other questions which felt more like a first session at a therapist, than a job interview.

     I felt like I was not given enough opportunity to let my skills shine, but was instead assessed intensely on personality, which I did not expect, and which felt somehow intrusive and exhausting.

    After the intensity of the questioning in the second interview, I had very little energy left to do the second translation test, or to even remember the questions I have prepared to ask them in the interview.

    The feedback I was given indicated that I did not get the role because of not having done great on the last translation test.

    I was disappointed because the role seemed great and the first interview was promising.

    Graduate Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Interview

    Process was very long and drawn out. Involved the usual numerical tests, telephone interview etc. The assessment centre lasted 9am-5pm and involved some unnecessary activities (two interviews asking pretty much the same questions)

    Regional Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Singapore (Singapore)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kantar Health (Singapore (Singapore)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    3 levels of interview, followed by 2 peer group evaluations and finally 2 reference checks and a background check. This was an internal job posting in the group I applied for. The process was quite well handled, and it took in all around 60 days to complete the entire process. Understandably so, as this is a senior leadership role for a critical function - so apparently, several candidates were being met for the job!
