Difficult Interview

Application

The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nielsen.

Interview

Interview process was very thorough and professional. Approximately 2 months from beginning to end. Phone screening with recruiter, online assessment, one hour phone interview with team member, then on-site with 3 other team members. Recruiter was very professional, and in general everyone I came in contact with was genuine, intelligent, and had a balance of making me feel at ease while asking good pointed questions. If you do your homework and are enthusiastic about the career path then you will, at the very least, be in the running.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First, I had a basic phone interview with HR to see if I was a good match for the position. After a week I had another phone interview with the manager of the position. She had my resume in front of her and asked me questions based on my skills and the required skills for this position. She was very down-to-Earth, which made me feel a lot more calm. At the time, they were changing a lot of their procedures so, they took a while to reach out to me and tell me where I stood in the interview process. I did not get offered this job, however, a manager from Nielsen reached out to me for a different position a few weeks afterward. So, they do keep your resume on file and may contact you.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a recruiter, then came in on-site for a test with several other applicants. I later had a panel interview with three separate people that took an afternoon. I followed up but they never got back to me after I spent a lot of time with them. Really soured me on the company and how they treat people.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nielsen (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    They found my resume on a job site, then they contacted me. They told me about the analyst internship and that I may be a good fit. There was a total of 2 phone calls. The first one was with someone from HR. She just wanted to get a better feel of who I was; very general. After that I was contacted to set up the second phone call, but with the people who would be my managers. They were great. We mainly spoke about my resume and experience.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Two weeks later, I received an email requesting a phone interview in the next two days. The interviewer called me 20 minutes late on our agreed upon date and time. She asked me basic questions about my resume and asked a few logic questions. At the end of the interview, she asked what my availability for an in-person interview was and also emailed a link to take an aptitude test. You have 7 days to complete the test. It is a series of problem solving questions and you have 3 minutes to read and answer them. I took the test and sent an email to the recruiter to make sure that it was received, but never got a response back. About two weeks after I submitted the test, I got a rejection email.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nielsen (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Interview Process took over 2 months. First spoke with an internal recruiter who was very nice, but did not always clearly communicate some of the details of the different phone interviews that were taking place. Spoke with 3 different people on a phone interview and then came in for a 3 hour in-person interview. Overall the in-person interview was very informative and went smoothly.
