    Interview

    I filled out the application on a wednesday, and received a call back that friday. Went in for the interview on a tuesday. The interview was at a very nice hotel, and the Trainer was easy to talk to BUT she was very serious about what you knew about the business. Review those videos, and be informed about what Nielsen is! The employees love their job, and they look to hire people who will love it as much as they do.

    Panel Relations Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Arlington, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    HR emailed to schedule phone interview. It was basic overview. Got an offer to go forward to the face to face interview. I had to wait a little before the interview because the head guy was in a meeting. I was interviewed by him and the person that would be my direct supervisor. The head guy did most of the questioning. They read off of a three to four page questionnaire. He seemed to be in a rush and to just be going through the motions. I asked for their emails and she said she didn't want to give it to me because her name is too long. I'm like really? Who cares. I got her supervisors email but he never responded to my thank you email. My advice is if you are too busy to pay attention, reschedule the interview.

    Panel Relations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call a couple days later to set up interview. Went to interview, met with two people initially, but two other people got called in to sit in on interview since there were two positions open. The interviewers were very amicable, describing the job, asking typical interview questions (why should they hire you, situational questions, why you want to work there, etc). The recruiter contacted me around the time they said they would decide and asked me if I was still interested and could come in for a second interview. This interview was a 1 on 1 with hiring manager. I thought this one went better than the first one, especially since most of the items she asked me to explain I had done at home (setting up cable-box, trouble shooting a connection, etc). About a week later, as they had estimated, I got an email saying I didn't get it but to keep looking at jobs in their company. Recruiter was very nice, my only down side to the job experience was that I asked for feedback, but they were not allowed to provide any.
