The work was easy ,we did meet your target ,some where every challenge

My typical day was picking up a vehicle at the airport was a good experience we drove different vehicles at a time. We meet different people and see many places I did not even no exist.We stays at different accomdation some where good others where poor but general it was good to see so many towns ,from the country side to the Karoo i had good memories.The interviews was also exciting as each person has a diffent opinion regarding the question we ask them about a specific topic .The only problem we were poorly paid including travelling money was very little ,generally it was nice to work for them,the work load was not heavy and we did meet your target.The most enjoyable part is stays at the accommadation and picking up the vehicles.

Nothing much

You need to have a good approach. Dress smart. Understand different cultures be faithful to your respondents. Have an understanding of location you are going to do your survey

Great environment

You basically make your own money at Kantar depending on the hours you are booked for work... That simple. The environment is great, the supervisors are helpful, the management is open. The salary isn't that motivating though.

Boring and stressful

Working there without benefits.so meaning you not safe and no work no pay that's another story,you only do 3 interviews per week there's no gaurantee that you will have money month end hence am no longer working.And employing incompetent supervisors it's another story for the company Kantor.Everything changes since the company changed into Kantar because I was working the time it was Millward Brown.also things changed after them merging with other companies

progressive working environment

Ideal working environment for young job seekers. Working experience is vast and allows for training on the job. Remuneration is average market value but personal growth is constant.

Pros

social committee

Cons

long hours, minimal pay

Perfect if you want spending money

If you want to make a living from this job it is hard work long hours and little money. Yes you work mostly in your own time but to make a life for yourself you need to be working non stop and it is commission only based.

Pros

Do not need to beg for time of

Cons

No work no pay

Work hard and play hard environment

My job entails overseeing projects that are currently in field. Making sure that all preps are done and my project coordinators are ready. I have learnt that working as a team helps a lot in keeping clients happy and getting the job done. The culture at TNS is "work hard and play hard". Employees are rewarded really well for going the extra mile. The hardest part of my job would be the long hours, especially this time of the year as all clients are expecting their results before their companies close for the year and for their financial year budgets. The most enjoyable part is working with new clients and new projects all the time. It is always exciting to present results and see happy clients at the end of a project.

Pros

Bonding sessions and team buildings

Cons

Lond hours
