    Market Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Delhi (India)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nielsen (New Delhi (India)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very unprofessional. The position mentioned was actually supposed to be market research analyst but the actual work was akin to that of a data entry employee.
    He said that you have to spend 8 hours daily in the office even though the work usually gets finished in 4-5 hours.

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nielsen (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I received the interview invitation 2 months after I applied for the position online. First part of the interview is a written test including some mathematic questions and a case study about the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. The questions in the test are more or less similar with those found online. Second part is an individual interview with HR, chatting about my past experience in academic researches, reasons for applying this position, and some questions about doing researches. After that, the HR gave me a case study of a focus group on financial services and I was required to do a 10-slide ppt writing a summary for the finding in 3 days.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cairo (Egypt)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Cairo (Egypt)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    At first I got an invitation for on-site interview and IQ test. After the test and the interview I was told they are going to reply in 2 to 3 weeks in case if I passed and NOTHING AT ALL if i do not pass. I got a call exactly a week later telling me I passed the test and that the next and final stage is a presentation of a marketing research proposal based on a brief they sent me by e-mail. I spent 3 days working on the presentation and after I did it they told me they gonna reply in a week, and they just never contacted me again. THEY COULD HAVE AT LEAST honored a man's effort that was put into that presentation with a call or en email saying I was not selected, but they just didn't.

    Marketing Research Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cergy (France)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Cergy (France)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Disorganised hiring process. I applied online and then was contacted by a HR assistant 10 days later for an initial phone interview. At the end of the phone interview, HR scheduled me for the on-site analytical test 1 week later. If I passed the test, I was told I would be interviewed by a consultant the same day.

    When I arrived for the test, the HR assistant was unprepared and claimed that I got the day mixed up. I explained that I had confirmed the date verbally and in email, and the assistant eventually apologized and set up the test. However, I was told that I could not be interviewed the same day if I passed the test.

    I passed the test, and was contacted 2 days later for an on-site interview with a consultant. When I arrived for the interview, the consultant was unprepared and didn't even have my CV printed out, just on the computer. The job description was communicated verbally, and differed from the job online. The consultant appeared to improvise questions and then explained that they had already identified another candidate who would be a better fit. So I'm not sure as to why I was interviewed in the first place.

    The following week, the HR assistant calls again to schedule an interview with a different department. She emphasised this time that the position would be a good fit for me, however, said that she doesn't have a job description available.

    So this time I was interviewed by two consultants, both very friendly and actually prepared. They gave me a written job description (which differed from the on-line offer), asked if I was interested (I said yes), then continued the interview. At the end, I was given another written test, in which I had to interpret data sets into graphic form, by hand on pencil and paper. The objective was to see if I could use pie charts, bar charts, etc appropriately.
