    Senior Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Bengaluru (India)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    In second round, interviewer didn't even gone through my CV and he is trying to go through in front of me by making me wait. When I explained business solution, he didn't even understand properly (since he was sleeping when I am communicating). I think Nielsen employees lot of time pass managers, please aviod this MNC and HR is shamelessly supporting their employee saying that he just returned from a travel (I have a email confirmation for this). If that is the case, why didn't they postponed it or arranged at some other time.
