    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at The Nielsen Company in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited after one interview by the team I am going to be working for. Team manager, Client Representative and a Business Analyst came to the interview. It was a friendly environment and they were more like chatting and asking about my background, university life and courses. They also asked about my knowledge about marketing research. One of the most important thing was to be long term, start as soon as possible and be able to continue part time 2-3 days during term time. Before the interview, I needed to make a translation to prove my English speaking abilities.

    Interview Questions
    • I would not say that there was a very complicated or any technical question. However, I hear that later on the interview process has changed. Now, they first give a mathematical test and translation. Then, HR interview and then interview with the team manager as the final step.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation as I was an intern. They had a fixed daily salary.

    Interview Details

    There were a one-on-one interview and a test of basic math skills and business instincts. The interview featured two types of questions. One type was how you've applied Nielsen values in your own life and experiences, and the other was asking for hypotheses on what occurred in a market given some parameters.

    The process took a day - interviewed at The Nielsen Company in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone interview initially with the typical behavioral questions. I think they are a very results oriented company and they definitely are looking for a lot of formal leadership experience.

    They then asked you to take a test which wasn't too bad.

    A week after i took the exam they told me they weren't interested. I think i did fine on the exam but i think every position has a different score you need to meet in order to be accepted.
