Project Developer Interview
The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen in January 2010.
Did a phone interview and was asked to come in for an assessment. The test was 90 minutes and applied to different aspects and functions of the job. Came in a week later for four rounds of interviews and a lunch meeting with another employee. Two of the interviews were over the phone, so it seemed pointless to do them from the office and made the day drag on. The questions across the four were extremely repetitive and I had to repeat the same stories all day. Some of the interviewers didnt seem to know what they were doing since the company clearly wasn't organized and swapped out a few people last minute. My last interviewer made up the questions as he went along. The woman I had done my phone interview with contacted me and asked me to come in yet again for another 30 minute interview. You could see why they are "industry leaders"- all focus on getting ahead and zero on individuals. None of the people I spoke with seemed to sell the company or the job to me, but instead had a "your lucky we're taking the time to talk to you" attitude. The lady from the phone interview was helping me throughout the process and was really nice until they decided not to hire me. I got a generic rejection letter with my actual name instead of my nickname which they'd be using with me throughout the entire process and even sent it to the email address listed in the job website and not the one from my resume that I'd been using to communicate with them for the entire 4 weeks.

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

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Nielsen (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2013.
Recruiter contacted me for a phone screening interview, basically just wanted to know what my current position is and what my responsibilities were. They asked about your current wage, what you expect to make, and what you know about the company. After that they submit your resume to the HR department at Nielsen and if everything goes well, you have an in person interview.
