    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Nielsen in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fast, I received a request for a phone interview and after an in person interview. Both interviews took approximately 30 minutes each and the questions weren't too difficult. It was pleasant and all staff I encountered were friendly. All in all, I'd say my experience with the interview and hiring process at Nielsen is great and was a good forecast on the future work experience.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process wasn't very difficult, it was the standard online application followed by a phone interview with the HR and a manager. After came an ability test that was emailed, if you passed that they would ask to come in for an in-house numerical exam. After this numerical exam was a group interview.

    they said there would be a test (some calculation) and a group interview for the first round interview. But after i finished my test, they just sent us go without looking at the test, saying they will notify us on further interview, based on the test result.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Nielsen.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted through campus, first had to go through a preliminary quantitative written exam prior to an interview, got through first round interview, and was told that they were looking to hire other people.
    The quantitative exam was fairly easy, and was a lot of weighted averages and the like. It did involve two written portions which took some time though.
    The Interview was almost entirely behavioural.
