    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nielsen.

    Interview

    Interview process was very thorough and professional. Approximately 2 months from beginning to end. Phone screening with recruiter, online assessment, one hour phone interview with team member, then on-site with 3 other team members. Recruiter was very professional, and in general everyone I came in contact with was genuine, intelligent, and had a balance of making me feel at ease while asking good pointed questions. If you do your homework and are enthusiastic about the career path then you will, at the very least, be in the running.

    Research Interviewer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Called in for an "interview" where they asked very basic questions (mind you, this was fitting for a high-schooler job). They then proceeded to recording me reading a text out loud in French and English, to evaluate my competency. By then, it was made vaguely clear that I was already hired. The interviewer gave me an English/French proficiency test sheet to fill in and give to the receptionist, and went on his way. I was later e-mailed confirmation of joining the team.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nielsen (Tampa, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online and had a brief phone call with an recruiter about two weeks later.

They asked me to go through my resume, talked about some upcoming projects and asked about the value I could add, and then asked some behavioral questions. The recruiter called back about half an hour later and offered the position with a choice for my location.
