    Operations Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NPD (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Typical process - applied online, heard back from a recruiter 2.5 weeks later to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was scheduled for the following week. It consisted of the usual phone screening questions and discussion. In-person interviews were scheduled for the following week. For the most part, nothing out of the ordinary. Getting a chance to speak with an executive director was definitely a plus and was very relaxed and conversational.

    The location of the office in Port Washington is rather inconvenient limiting commuting options. Also, unfortunately, communication ceases once you are no longer being considered.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NPD (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly involved with four different phone interviews. The flexibility of the doing the interviews by phone was nice. They asked a lot of the basic questions. It was all pretty standard. However, if you want to know the status of your application, the only way to find out is to use their online system. They will not respond to phone calls or follow-up emails about your application status, even after four rounds of interviews.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NPD in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of basic question surrounding qualifications and experience. A few were behavioral questions, but most were just about why I was interested in the company and the particular position that I applied for. Overall, it was a good experience; however, it took about 3 weeks between the first one screen and then second, which was longer than I anticipated.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no questions that stood out as difficult, as the process was pretty straight forward.   Answer Question

    Client Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gainesville, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NPD (Gainesville, FL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    NPD Group came on campus where they give company presentation and took an interview which was about my background and current education.

    I got selected for 2nd round of interviews which I came to know after 3 weeks of follow up in which they never care to reply. I had 4 skype interview scheduled from EVP,VP and Executive directors (all interviews where behavioural or question & answer type). EVP told me about different work location and different work profile. Anyway, All of my interviews went well and they were highly impressed.

    One of the interview from 4 interviews didn't happen as HR told me afterwards about that (again unprofessional attitude). I figured out that NPD is very unorganised and laid back etc. type of company (clearly I never want to join). After a week, I followed up for the results in which they replied "no appropriate position at this time"!!!! Like I said before, they don't know what they are doing so the position doesn't exist.

    Suggestion - Don't apply for an internship or full time at NPD. You can do better

    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NPD (Chicago, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Odd interviewer. Her heavy accent made her difficult to understand. The interview was very uncomfortable because I had to ask her to repeat the question several times. She seemed very scripted and rote. I was not interested in a second after talking to her. I was brought in for an interview via a referral, and basically the interviewer told me they already had a candidate in mind. It very much like a checkbox interview
