Research Analyst Interview

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Nielsen.

Interview Details

Got contacted by an HR, no phone interview and go straight to onsite. The onsite interviews were 5 1:1 30mins, nothing difficult or unexpected, but you need to show strong interest in the particular role. They are quite laid-back on hiring process, slow replies.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Nielsen in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I submit an application online and was contacted by the recruiter. There were two phone conversations and then they assigned a case study to test my aptitude. The case study provided a data set and the instructions to turn it into a 15-slide presentation. After the case study, I was flown into the office for an in person interview where I met individually with three people on the team.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Nielsen in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Apparently companies no longer judge you through an interview, or phone interview, but through a simple initial email response.

    I received an email from a recruiter asking when I would be able to speak and set up a potential time for a phone interview to discuss the position. I responded within the hour and said when I would be available and that I am happy to speak about the job, and to please let me know what time would be best for them to contact me.

    And that was that....no response. I tried contacting them multiple times after, but not too many, just in case somehow some emergency occurred. Nothing.

    I guess my style of responding wasn't Nielsen material. Unreal.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nielsen.

    Interview Details

    Phone screening, Behavioral Assessment, In person math exam, three interviews with five people, and then maybe lunch if you're lucky.

    The process was very intimidating yet beneficial as well.

    If you don't pass the math exam you can not move on with the interview process.

    I applied online – interviewed at Nielsen.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, was asked for a phone interview to which I replied with available times and received no response. I followed up within the time frame in case the email was lost or something but still nothing. Very odd and unprofessional. It seems that if there were too many responses an email is an easy thing to send these days.

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

    Interview Details

    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.
