    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Nielsen Company.

    Interview Details

    There is behavior and analytical test before you even get a chance to speak to someone. You have to be open for multitasking and following rules in your behavior test and good analytical thinking for the other part. You will talk to 2-3 people among which will be the hiring manager unless you are interviewed at a college event where it will be all random.The questionnaire's are standard but hiring managers always throw softballs at you that might be tricky.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at The Nielsen Company.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was long and involved many calls back and forth to the HR Recruiter. The interviews were weeks apart, I thought I would never hear from them again, then the next call came. The recruiter quit in the middle of my interviewing process and I had to call and ask why the process stalled.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at The Nielsen Company.

    Interview Details

    Standard initial call with the representative from HR. More concerned with seeing if you can carry on a intelligent conversation than seeing if you are qualified for the position.

    Then, an assessment test was scheduled. The test covered some basic math skills/GRE type questions. I would recommend reviewing similar type questions before taking the test.

    The process after that was actually relatively painless. It was a 3 hour interview--3 interviews with 3 people spanning from manager to director.

    I did not negotiate but it could have been worthwhile to try. Just depends on how confident you are in getting the position.

    Interview Details

    The interviewers are always manager level or higher. They ask a mix of behavioral questions and simple case questions (market sizing, marketing strategy, etc.). There are 3 rounds of interviews. First is a test, second is one interview and third is 3 interviews in a row. The interviewers really put you at ease and just want to get to know you and see how well you will fit with the company.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at The Nielsen Company.

    After resume screening, you will be given a straightforward assessment of math/statistical knowledge, that also includes a condensed case study and a writing sample. Interview questions themselves were mostly behavioral, with some business-issue related questions here and there. Relatively relaxed, but still professional environment.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at The Nielsen Company.

    Interview Details

    The process was no different than what others have reported here. My experience was very positive and enjoyable. Although it was lengthy, the recruiter kept me informed though every step.

    The online assessment is challenging and there is really no way to prepare for it. Be ready for mostly logic questions and be ready to work fast.

    I interviewed with 3 groups of 2 people each. They asked many of the same behavioral questions already posted on previous reviews. There were no surprises and everyone was incredibly nice and accommodating. The case study questions are open ended and there is no right answer. They are looking at your though process and your ability to think logically.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Nielsen Company in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had a first round interview on campus with the recruiter. Mostly behavioral questions and a relaxed environment. I then had to take a short test. I believe it was 10 quantitative questions and 2 case questions. I went on to a second round interview in Covington, KY. I met first with a recently hired analyst and then had three back-to-back interviews with upper management, each one lasting 45 minutes. All the questions were behavioral. All in all it was not a bad interview experience.
