Associate Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Cincinnati, OH) in March 2014.

Interview

I had a contact refer me. I applied online. Took the online test. The online test is primarily word problems and then some personality questions. Nielsen doesn't provide any practice tests. I recommend using the P&G practice test. The online test are very similar (Nielsen doesn't have the shapes relationships that P&G does).

Interview Questions

  • Be prepared for a situational question. For example, Tide detergent sales are slumping and P&G asks why. What do you do?   Answer Question

Reasons for Declining

Other offer that was more in line with the work I wanted to do.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    Applied for one job with 2 rounds of on-site interviews after a call with an HR rep. They hired internally for that job, but contacted me back about 3 weeks after the 2nd interview to consider me for 1 one 3 open positions. Had an interview with 2 managers onsite asking pretty normal questions.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me out of the 3 jobs available, which one would I prefer the most and why. I had to carefully consider the aspects of each job as well as the fact that one of these two managers would be my new manager depending upon which position I selected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Was not able to negotiate salary. At this time it was an entry-level position and I took what I could to get in the door. Only negotiation was start time, which was able to happen about 3 weeks after the final interview and offer.

    Interview

    Very straightforward interview process. You're basically a connection from the client to Nielsen's vast resources of services and products. If you're on-site your a salesman who can do some data analysis, so the interview questions are based on this.

    Slow interview process over 2 months, mainly due to Christmas holidays. Multiple parts that included phone interviews, skill testing offline and in-person presentations. Long interviews within the office and a bit more casual than expected.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Very pleasant interview experience. I applied straight out of school for Nielsen's graduate program. First you get selected for an online assessment (basic thought process and analytic questions). Next, I had a behavioural interview with an HR rep. She asked me the basic strengths/weaknesses questions, asked why I was interviewing for Nielsen, and asked a few situational questions. Next I had an interview with the manager of Associate Analysts and a Business Partner. I had to present a case that I had gotten a week prior. They were more interested with my thought process approaching the case as opposed to my final recommendation (Tip: they like when you explain your thought process step-by-step out loud). They also asked me a few questions on how I feel about criticism, a time i had to overcome a challenge and why I think I'd be a good fit with the company. I heard back from them in 2 weeks with an offer.
