    Client Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oxford, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Oxford, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email from the company 3 weeks later inviting me to an online video assessment via Shortlister. I had 3 days to complete it. 1 week later, they contacted me again inviting me to a face to face interview where I had to present a case study and respond several competency based questions. They called me on the next day with a positive feedback and an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Online assessment: how my previous experience would help me to succeed in the new role, why do I want to work for Nielsen.
      Face to face: very long and detailed interview. Interviewers were well prepared, passionate about their jobs and extremely experienced. I had several questions about my presentation and also competency based ones. Eg: how do you work under pressure? Tell us an example of when you had to reach a tough target and how you achieved it, tell us an example of something you did that improve something in the company, if lots of people are asking you things with a short deadline, how do you prioritise it, how do you face changes etc.   Answer Question

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oxford, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Oxford, England (UK)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Speaking solely for this BDM role, I have to say that the initial stage was satisfactory with a phone screening that lasted more than an hour, and an extremely disappointing face to face interview, with good cop/bad cop old fashion approach. No policy for covering expenses to travel to Oxford and no feedback or contact whatsoever after the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The first question I was asked from one of the interviewers was why there was a 5-month gap between positions (it was 3 actually) that I had 10 years ago.   1 Answer

    Graduate Client Service Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oxford, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Oxford, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There are a large number of steps involved in applying - first the application form, then online personality and numerical tests, then another, very lengthy application form, then an assessment day on the location, and finally, apparently, another final interview round.

    First off, too many steps. Who has time to go do and wait for the results of so many stages?

    Secondly, the assessment day was strange. Divided into three stages, a bunch of people were sent home at each one. It was well organised, but I rather felt like cattle being driven to and from different rooms. There was no travel reimbursement (getting to Oxford is not cheap for everyone).

    I can see that there must be layers and layers of bureaucracy in a firm as large as this, and am half gratified at having been rejected relatively early on.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no questions as it was all group-based exercises   Answer Question
