Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Mumbai (India)

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Mumbai (India)) in September 2013.

Interview

The interview process was pretty straightforward. We had an initial written test and after that I just had one round of interview from an AM and he asked all the logical questions to evaluate my thought process. Others have had 3-4 rounds of interviews during recruitment.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nielsen.

    Interview

    I applied through my college's career site. Had to attend a "pre night" the night before which consisted of meeting our interviewer and him not being able to answer many questions and saying he never interviewed anyone before. It made me feel worse rather than better. The interview itself was 45 minutes long. Half standard behavioral questions and half marketing and case questions. Despite this job description not requiring a marketing degree or even a class, you really needed it to succeed in this interview. I'm not sure why i was even selected, when they could see i had no background in marketing. Then we had to take a 45 minute online test, half personality questions which felt like they were there to trick you, and half logic questions mostly about knowing the order of things and relationships. Got rejected 4 days later.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nielsen (Markham, ON (Canada)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was asked to come in for the interview at their Markham office and the HR person was sweet but the Walmart Marketing team was extremely rude. The Manager and the VP were not friendly and were persistently asking if I wanted the job and showed no interest in my background except for pointing out that I come from a different background. Then they said they would let me know in a week's time and failed to get back to me on time.

    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.

    Average Interview

    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.
