    Market Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Phone interview, group interview, large task (60 slides of charts to analyze and develop new presentation from, then present it), math test.

    People were super nice but it was very upsetting when something that was moving so quickly and I was TOLD I was the selected candidate, but suddenly I had no updates for a month until the recruiter finally told me the position was on hold. Interviews/tasks took a lot of time and it was upsetting to not have much transparency and be so let down.

    Client Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kantar Worldpanel (New York, NY).

    Interview

    After speaking with the recruiter on the phone, I spoke to the hiring manager for about half an hour on the phone. Within the day, I was invited in for an in-person interview with the hiring manager. The in-person interview was guided by a form which the manager filled out based on my responses. Questions were fairly typical: Why Market Research? Why Kantar? Why do I think companies should pay for Kantar's services? etc. After the interview, I was given a math assessment which I was told would take about 30 min. It took me more like 40-45 min, but I suppose I did okay because I was called back for another interview. This time, I had to present some data that the manager sent me. The presentation was on Maxwell House coffee. I presented to the hiring manager and her boss. I was not offered the job. I think where I failed was in my "storyline". I should have been more concise with which data I presented and the overall story. I sort of included too many elements.

    Interview Questions

    • I hate to say that what took me off guard was the manager's desire to know my own "personal" accomplishments that I am proud of. I had read so many articles about avoiding referring to your personal life vs. academic and work achievements that I sort of froze.   Answer Question

    Interview

    The industry is interesting although it very time consuming since they expect you to do overtime most of the time. The interview process was long and they just don't respect the time of the candidates when it comes to giving feedback.

    Placement Student Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Kantar Worldpanel (London, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied to the role after seeing an advert on LinkedIn in December. A couple of weeks later I was asked to complete a numerical psychometric test to which I had to be in the 40th percentile to pass. At the beginning of January I received an email about a phone interview which took place at the end of Jan. This consisted of 4/5 scenario based questions testing your situational judgement skills lasting about 20 mins (such as what you would do if there was a project that got moved forward but the manager wasn't available to contact and you needed their help etc.). I was told it would take a week at the latest for them to contact me regarding whether I would go through to the final stage which was assessment day (which I did), although they took slightly more than a week to get back to me. Once they did contact me, they said they would contact me again nearer to the assessment in a couple of weeks to give me more information. However, they were late again at giving me the information and only did so after I sent 2 emails to HR. At the assessment day (which was from 1.30pm-5.30pm) there was nothing to prepare and about 30 candidates in total. To my surprise, there was a mix of graduates and undergraduates (of which I was one) and so felt a definite disadvantage from the start. We were given an overview of the company and a talk by the MD before going into the interviews which were an hour long and rather unpleasant. We then completed a group task which was fun about the grocery market and involved presenting to 2 people from Kantar. I received an offer a week later but declined as a better opportunity came through.
