    Operations Supervisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kantar Media (Chesapeake, VA).

    Interview

    The interview process was thorough and quick. The company did not pull me along or string out the process. HR answered all of my questions. I did a phone screen with HR, then interviewed with the management panel and finally, the Operations Manager for whom I'd work with. There was a followup with HR. After that, there was a few days wait and then I was made a job offer.

    Media Classifier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kantar Media.

    Interview

    Found this position from a temp agency, which made the job out to be better than it actually is. When I arrived early for my interview, I was told that the interviewer was not ready and was not let into the building to wait for another five to ten minutes. I was then taken into a conference room to fill out a paper application. Two people came in to 'interview' me, however I was only asked to tell them about myself. The rest of the interview was the interviewers describing the job. After this I was taken into the work area with the other employees to be shown exactly what the job entailed and immediately made the decision that I would not be working here if offered a position. If you need a job badly it wouldn't be a terrible position, but if you're looking to enter the job market with a position where you can gain valuable experience or potentially move up, this isn't it.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't feel like a position/company I could gain useful experience from or even move up in within a reasonable period.

    Production II Brand Central Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chesapeake, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kantar Media (Chesapeake, VA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I was hired through a temp agency which is standard at Kantar unless you know someone. I took all the tests and filled out applications at the agency and they scheduled the interview for me, all I had to do was show up. I was let in and waited a few minutes for the supervisor, who gave me a brief tour, then I met the department manager who is probably the best interviewer I've ever met. This particular hiring manager had a very conversational style of interview in her office and was able to determine from her conversation and a few questions. I was then offered the position via my temp agent which was 3 months for training and the official hire/offer date was when I successfully completed the trial phase.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The negotiation was done by my temp agent. I just had to address my concerns to her and follow the temp rules until date of official hire.

    Media Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Kantar Media (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Sent my application online and heard back within half an hour. Went to the interview to their East London office and was asked to present myself, was asked about my skills, have I used excel and pivot tables and such. They gave me a range for the salary, and picked the highest threshold, which they gave me so recommend applicants do that, because if not they will give you the lowest. I then sat a test reading some articles and wrote a short analysis.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about yourself. Why are you interested in working for us when you seem busy with your freelancing work? Are you familiar with pivot tables? What sort of reports do you work on in terms of content?   Answer Question

    Applied via online process and had a call back within 30 mins, an agency then proceeded to interview by phone and then invited me to an office interview/assessment the next day in London. I completed this and was passed thru to a 2nd interview with the field manager, this was a bit confusing as at 1St the agency said I had a job offer.
