    From first interview to offer, the whole process took 3 months. This seems to be a pattern with many current employees. Had a phone interview with HR and Manager.

My original start date was delayed by 2 weeks.

    Data Validation Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Data Reporting Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at NPD (Athlone (Ireland)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Relatively easy, friendly, well organised. Lots of contact from the HR person. Scheduled the interview to suit times and kept me up to date. The first interview was a group interview at the recruitment agency they deal with, followed by another group interview within the NPD building where you had to talk about yourself for a little while [brief background etc]. Following this was another interview on your own with two from the company [this occurred twice over different days].

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NPD (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Phone Call - Resume
    Skype - Behavioral and Technical
    After that it was mostly working with HR because the interviewer was very lazy in getting back to HR about whether an offer was going to be extended or not.
