I applied online and interviewed at NPD.

Interview Details – First contact was a screening call. Interviewer asked me to explain several areas of my resume and asked if I was comfortable with the job description.

Interview Question – Was there ever a time when you were in a situation with an individual you didn't get along with? How did you handle the situation?   View Answer

Very Easy Interview

Account Specialist Interview

Account Specialist
Rosemont, IL

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at NPD in December 2012.

Interview Details – Recruiter reached out the same day I applied via LinkedIn. She was pushy from the very first day and I was very uncomfortable talking with her. She had very little flexibility in scheduling the in office interview and called me multiple times a day to schedule it. The in office interview consisted of 3 rounds: 2 with hiring managers and 1 with an HR Representative. The interview was very laid back and generic questions about working style and my background. Afterwards (a week later) I had an interview with the Director over the phone. The managers and director were very nice and easy to talk with - unlike their recruiter.

Interview Question – No hard questions - all just talking about myself.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Honestly, I just got such a bad feeling from the Recruiter. She was horrible to speak with and that made me nervous to work for a company like that.
