Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vadodra

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Nielsen (Vadodra) in May 2021

Interview

I applied online through the Nielsen website and a week later got a link for an online aptitude test. After taking the test, I got a call from HR the next day asking to schedule an interview. The interviewers were extremely unprofessional to say the lease. It was an online interview through Google Meet and one of the interviewers got a call in-between the process. The person started talking on the phone while I was answering his question. I stopped answering and the second interviewer muted the person talking on phone and asked me to continue.

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Nielsen

Interview

There was one interviewer and me. They asked a lot of subjective questions, and wanted me to answer how I'd respond in certain situations. It was doable, but hard to come up with answers on the spot without professional experience.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Nielsen

Interview

Very bad experience. The recruiter called me after seeing my LinkedIn profile. After the first call with the recruiter, he was fast enough to schedule the *technical* interview within next couple of days. Call with recruiter : Tell about your work experience, why looking for a change, salary expectation. First *Technical* round : It was supposed to be a technical interview, but it was the least technical interview I have given so far. Since there was hardly any technical questions, I was pretty sure I have cleared the first round as I have answered most of them. I kept on following up with the recruiter to give a feedback. I also told him to let me know if they are going ahead with another candidate also, but he didn't reply. Just a note to the recruiting team: Like the way you guys are so fast in scheduling interview, likewise please let the candidate know about the feedback so that they can resume the job hunt again. "With great power comes great responsibility". N.B : I have 10 years of development experience, in product based company and in Big 4 as well ( all full time ).

Easy Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Nielsen (New York, NY) in Apr 2021

Interview

Met with the data science recruiter and the director of the team. Had a technical interview with the director and the staff data scientist on the team. Had a group call with some members of the team. Met with the director's boss.

Interview Questions
  • Technical test was a live, timed test where you could use any resources you needed to. It involved a series of short, straightforward Python tasks involving lists/dictionaries followed by a pandas data transformation task in a Google Colab notebook. Then I was asked to analyze a regression task output and any potential issues, followed by some general questions like, what are the pros/cons of random forests vs. gradient boosted forests; if you were trying to predict XYZ, what would you consider using, etc. Most of the other questions were around my past work or other case type questions - how would you solve this or go about doing this?
