    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kantar Retail (Norwalk, CT) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty intensive process. First round was a phone interview where the interviewer asked basic behavioral questions with a small case interview at the end. Second round was a case interview where they emailed you a powerpoint with a ton of information about a particular case that mostly tested your business sense and quant ability. Third round they bring you to their offices for 3 case/behavioral interviews and a math test. They were pretty responsive and communicative throughout the process and fair.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard behavioral questions. One of the cases was you work for a paper towel company, should you recommend to your boss that you start manufacturing sheets that are perforated halfway?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kantar Retail.

    Interview

    It was an extremely thorough and involved process. I found the job on indeed, submitted my resume and cover letter and was offered a 1st interview by phone about 1.5 months later. After the 1st interview, I was offered a 2nd phone interview five days later (a case study was sent to me 20 minutes prior to the phone call). After the 2nd interview, I was requested to come for a 3rd and final interview event one week later. This final interview day consisted of three 2-on-1 interviews lasting approx an hour each, a math exam lasting an hour with GMAT style questions, and a 2.5 hour group case study.

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

    Interview

    The interview called you and asked me to walk over my resume and then asked 5-7 behavioral questions. Interviewer were quite straightforward to share about job tasks and expectation in the next few years. However, the interview did not really reveal the unique aspect of the company as I had expected through visiting company website and research people's review.

    Interview

    I applied through a college program and then did off-cycle recruiting. There was an initial phone interview that was very basic. The second phone interview had a short case study where you look at a powerpoint of graphs and analyze them and make a recommendation. At the in person interview day there were 4 of us and we rotated through a math test, a group case study and about 3-4 interviews with 2 interviewers in each. At the end of the group case you make a recommendation and have to defend it.
