    Interview Details

    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.

    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.

    Anonymous Employee in Mumbai (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Nielsen in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Bit mismanaged, the recruiter informed me that the interview would consist of basic math /logic test followed by F2F interview. Instead I had a F2F interview first followed by a Semi advanced math/Data analysis / Grammar test. God - i thought wren and martin was history but post this test I was forced to come back and refer to this Grammar goddess . To me this test format is really old and Nielson's are busy to change it. Who on earth cares if its nielsons's or nielson's strategy - this is one of the questions of grammar test. Well, post interview no one inform if u made it or not and for what reasons. I had a good interview round and may have missed by 1 mark or 2 on the test as it went off well as well.
