Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Nielsen in July 2014.

Interview

very impressed at the way things work in Nielsen company, contacted immediately after the test for the results. very quick, clear and crisp. only one thing I did not understand is why dont they allow to sit for all the tests? i am sure many of you'l will agree with me...........having studied 5 years of statsistics you wont be judged on it and wont be allowed to give test unless you clear Maths and English, that too with 70%.
goodluck to all trying for this company
it isnt everybody's cup of tea, but one should always give it a try.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Nielsen.

    Interview

    Applied online through university recruitment.

    Was invited to complete a reasoning test. The test included basic statistics questions (high-school level problems) along with a case study at the end, giving a client a recommendation. The test seemed easy but I didn't not get invited back to any further steps. It seems like the test was used to weed out candidates. I'm certain all the math questions were answered correctly. Perhaps they were looking for unique answers to the case study.
