    Professional Services, Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Nielsen in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied through university recruiting and was sent a link to take an assessment. I wasn't prepared for the assessment as it was more intense than I was planning. I suggest you are in a position where you won't be distracted and can focus as it is timed and you will likely not finish. After the assessment I was contacted for a phone interview, nothing too difficult, just behavioral and going through your resume.

    After the phone interview they followed up to have 2 interviews with managers. Both managers came to our campus the following week. 1 of the 2 was a case study that focused on the more statistical knowledge of data analysis. The second was more behavioral. Both managers were very helpful in the interview process.

    They were very professional during the whole process and really wanted to match me with an office that I wanted. Asked me my preferences in regards to location and region. The offer was based on those preferences so I was really appreciative of that accommodation and professionalism. Only reason I didn't accept the offer was because of having to relocate and salary/cost of living considerations from another offer.

    Global Leaders Program Interview

    Interview Details

    They came to campus to interview for this position. The interviews were friendly, but I was kind of put off by the bickering of the interviewers who were dating each other. I felt that the questions were pretty standard, and they gave terrific feedback at the end. I felt comfortable contacting them after the interview to gain insight about my interview (what I could improve, what went well).

    After submitting my resume I was invited to an on-site interview. I met with a manager who was very experienced in interviewing, but had not reviewed my resume prior.

The second manager also had not read my resume and asked questions about experience I had in solving issues that were plaguing his projects. Total time 1/2.
