    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at GfK.

    Interview Details

    Hired as part of an acquisition, so cannot speak to GfK process. I can say that some teams are more selective than others, interviewing for months and months before making a single hire.

    Interview Questions
    • Not sure if they still use these for entry-level, but they'll ask abstract ideas to get a feel for how you think. For example) What is the US population? Some basics on statistics are also likely to be asked.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at GfK.

    Interview Details

    Had three interviews which were pretty standard with no real difficult questions. Some of the people that I gave as references said that the questions they were asked were really basic and didn't relate to the job in question. Also had to go back and forth a few times on the offer letter due to errors and wanting clarification in writing.

    Straightforward except the process of the offer letter was a bit aggrevating,

    Senior Research Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at GfK in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was fairly straight forward. A recruiter scheduled two phone interviews with higher ups who's team I would be on. Then I had two in person interviews at the local office with the person I would report to, and their boss. Everyone was very positive and told me they would be in touch in a couple of days. Unfortunately, I never heard back after the in person interviews. I reached out to the recruiter to ask if a decision had been made and heard nothing. Very disappointing as I spent nearly 2 months going through the whole process. It would have been nice to hear formally one way or the other.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no technical questions asked. They did ask how I would feel working for someone who I felt knew less than I do.   Answer Question
