    Research Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Millward Brown (Lisle, IL).

    Interview

    Before a phone screen with someone I had to make another cover letter, which specifically compared my skill set to the job, beyond the original cover letter and resume I had sent. The following are directions given to me, "The best way to do the cover letter is to place a two column table from MS Word in a separate document. Place the “what you will do” and the “what you will need” sections from the job description in the left column and compare yourself and your skills in the right column.
      In addition please respond to the following questions regarding your interest in this opportunity in the body of the returned email response.

    Why are you interested in this specific job? Why are you well suited to it?

    What roles have you held where attention to details is a paramount duty? Please elaborate

    Please discuss your current situation? Are you working? If not please indicate what you are doing currently.

    Please indicate your current compensation.

    Are you able to work overtime as needed?"

    After I completed all of this in depth work, I then achieved a phone screen. After I passed that my information was forwarded to the person who would decide about hiring. After being asked for an interview, I didnt hear back for a week. After checking in again I was told I would have two 30 minute interviews followed by a 30 minute skills assessment.
    The 30 minute interviews were each with two people, one on the phone and someone in person.

    They went well. They told me they wanted to extend an offer, but internal delays were causing complications. They said that was the problem for 4 months. Never heard from them again one day after that.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Millward Brown (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted one day after applying via the company website for a phone screening. The screening was very professional and mostly involved the recruiter reviewing details about the position. She then asked me to walk through my resume and asked why I was interested in the position. It was very laid back and she told me she'd follow up with the hiring manager for this position and get back to me. I was contacted the next week and she let me know they chose not to move forward.

    Research Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Millward Brown.

    Interview

    The day after I submitted an online job application, I was very excited to be contacted to set up an initial phone interview. The interview was set for later the same week. The day of the interview, I waited for the call from the recruiter at the time he had scheduled. The scheduled time came and went; I waited an hour to account for possible confusion over the time difference and still nothing. So I emailed him to see if he was still available and he said he had wanted to get to me that week, but things had come up. He asked if we could talk next Wednesday instead, which I agreed to. Next week comes and I email him Tuesday to schedule a time to talk the next day- no response. Wednesday comes and goes and I still hear nothing- instead of being able to take care of errands I had to wait around in the house in case I got the call. I wait another day and send one last email to express my continued interest in the position and simply ask if it is still available- no response. I understand that positions get filled and interviews get cancelled; however not even bothering to tell interviewees with whom an interview had already been scheduled and instead disregarding their time is completely unprofessional behavior on the part of the recruiter. If this is the face the company shows to potential employees, it makes me wonder what the experience of actually working there is like.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Millward Brown.

    Interview

    Went through 4 interviews and a presentation on site. It was a very long day but it wasn't to strenuous.

    The only thing that made me angry was that I was never officially contacted and told that I did not receive the position. I understand not hearing back when filling out an online application but I spent nearly 6 hours in their office.

    Mainly just a courtesy issue on how the situation was handled.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Millward Brown in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer was extremely unprofessional. Originally agreed to set 7:30 as the time for the interview (time zone difference), but had a no show at 7:30. So I emailed to her and she told me that she will call me in 3 hours without telling me an exact time. Then suddenly ten minutes later, she said that she will call me now.

    The process was chill and easy. However, there were some odd questions like why do you think you got rejected by certain companies. Did not click well with the interviewer at all.
