Professional Services Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Nielsen Company in November 2011.

Interview Details

Got the interview from career services. Went to a night before presentation which was helpful because they assume you know their organizational structure and ask where you want to work. Just a pretty simply fit/behavioral interview with one person. The interviewers all seemed very young, which made the interview more conversational.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Nielsen Company in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Met representatives at Career Fair who told me about an Information Session. I applied for an interview online through my college's recruiting site. I was selected for an on-campus interview (though unsure how many people were not selected). The interviews for Nielsen come with an analytical assessment portion (90 min test) that you can take at any point in the day which was the most surprising part of the process.

    Interview Questions
    • Aside from the analytical assessment (very much like a harder SAT), I was asked "what's one of the most challenging group projects you've worked on?"

      "Tell me about a time you lead a group and were met with controversial opinions."

      -Also asked about 2 types of pizza (a cheap, store brand that tastes boring but makes a decent profit...and an expensive pizza that tastes great, but yields less customers)..which would I choose to market and why?

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at The Nielsen Company in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through campus e-recruiting. I simply uploaded my resume and was contacted within a week and a half that I'd been selected for an interview. The interview consisted of a lot of "Tell me about a time when..." type questions. It's highly suggested that you think about your experiences thoroughly and how you triumphed before the interview. All communication was through email, which is a bit impersonal, but understandable due to the high number of applicants.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Nielsen Company in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I am a sophomore undergrad university student who interviewed with Nielsen for their Professional Services Internship. The interview lasted about 40 minutes- it was 2:1, with my interviewer (a senior vice-president) and a note-taker (from BASES specialized analytics) who would occasionally ask questions accompanying my main interviewers. Both employees were clearly experienced in trying to foster a comfortable interview environment, which I appreciated. The senior interviewer described the position and answered all questions very thoroughly. I had a handful of short "tell me about your interest in this position" or "tell me about your academic background"-type questions, 3 standard behavioral questions, an unexpected case-study type of question, followed by logistical questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Case study:
      You are a senior project manager with the option to choose one of two clients for your next project:
      Client A, whose brand A has a very broad customer base consisting of customers who buy Brand A infrequently.
      Client B, whose brand B has a much smaller but more loyal customer base.

      If you had enough resources to conduct research for only one brand, which would you pick (and believe will be most successful), and why?

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume through career fair and career services. Was contacted for an interview and invited to a pre-interview social. Interview was very laid back. What was a time you had to teach someone a new skill set? What was a time that you integrated resources? One main interviewer and another note-taker, both 5-7 years in. Was very open and shared their experiences.
