    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at NPD in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had applied through my college career development website during late December and received a call from their HR rep beginning of Jan. Unfortunately I was in the middle of my vacation so I rescheduled with her for a phone interview after I came back. After a few weeks, she scheduled 4 phone interviews with VPs/EVP/ED through out Feb. Finally in the beginning of March I went in for 2 in-person interviews at NPD Group in LI.
