    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Nielsen (Mumbai (India)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Got an email from recruiter after 1 month of submitting application through Naukri.com
    process involves-written test, telephonic interview and few more interviews

    got test paper to solve in one hour. very lengthy and confusing. needed to take out grammar and all whatever mistakes were there in question paper. there was total 25 questions. few were mathematics, some confusing case study, one question on "proudest moment of yours" and last was case study on "UNISOAP"
    case study: UNISOAP is soap for multiple uses. you can use it as detergent, as body wash etc etc...
    you as a consultant have to do SWOT analysis

    cut off was minimum 15 grammatical errors from the paper as well as sectional cut offs.

    frustrating procedure. test copies were not checked for more than next 10 days.
    called HR , and she just told me...I think you couldn't clear the test. i asked for my scores but she refused to do so.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Nielsen (Mumbai (India)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process comprised of aptitude test and PI. Before the aptitude test detailed presentation about the company and the role offered were given, the company people were open to all kind of questions. The aptitude test comprised of Quant, two short cases (one on interpretation of a sample research finding and other about suggestions on a new product launch) and verbal (mainly error correction).
    Based on the aptitude marks candidates were shortlisted for PI. Quant has the maximum weightage.
    The PI had three rounds comprising of technical(about research, some situations were also given) and HR questions (all sort of questions about you and few questions about the company and profile offered).
    Selection was done after a short interaction with the VP.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nielsen (Mumbai (India)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    2 rounds of Telephonic interview, followed by the written Test which you need to clear first.
    Telephonic rounds for PM&D division I never understood what they want. Truly speaking I know people working there who almost have never seen the window of the software which they use, prior to working over here, but those guys get chances. People who really know very less statistics they also work over there. So the mystery of PM&D division I don't know. Though I never worked in that division, but truly speaking they don't need people who are too good in statistics, they need people who are very order followers and very less salary expectations.
    The Data Science team as a team is really good, interview process is not complicated they ask you relevant questions you answer you get the job as simple as that, obviously here you won't be doing any statistical modeling
