Research Associate Interview

Research Associate
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied online - interviewed at The Nielsen Company in December 2012.

Interview Details – it's pretty easy and quick. the hiring manager asked bunch of question like going though your resume and tell me more about you ie. strengths and weaknesses...the manager seems nice and know her stuff but at then end she kinds in the rush to leave and did not offer me the opportunity to ask her a question as usual interview goes.

Interview Question – the manager gives me a kind of brainteaser question like how many people on the planet if give a quick guess   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – the salary is on the low end, no room to negotiate
