Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (New York, NY) in February 2013.

Interview

I went through 2 rounds of interviews. On-campus I had one in-person interview with primarily behavioral questions regarding my interests, past internships, and accomplishments. I also received short case questions about what type of analysis I would conduct to answer certain business questions. 2nd round was at a Nielsen office with 4 rounds of similar interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nielsen (Chicago, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my school and on campus recruiting. I got an email for an interview. The day before the interview on a Monday they invited us to a "mixer" that night to make us feel better for a couple hours. It did not. They also required us to take an hour long logic test the day before the interview. Very frustrating and felt like they didnt respect our time. Interviewed with one person the next day for 45 mins.

    Flew out to Chicago to interview all day and they let me know my flight info 2 days before my flight. Another lack of concern/care for the candidates. There were four 45 min long interviews with a case study. No feedback. Intermixed marketing questions.

    I was on a deadline for another offer and called multiple times to remind them of this. They told me via email the day before my deadline which I found pretty disrespectful. Overall, I have only heard more horrible experiences from other candidates with Nielsen and their HR. Speaks volumes of the company itself

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Cincinnati, OH) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was recruited through my university. The process was 3 steps: resume submission, on-campus interview, and on-site interview. The on-campus interview was personality/resume based with one very broad business thinking type question. The on-site consisted of Q&A with current associates and 4-45 minute interviews. Of these 4, two were purely resume/behavioral, one also included market-sizing and critical thinking questions, and the other was purely a case question. The case question consisted of 20 minutes to examine available data on a table and ask questions and then 10-15 to summarize the situation and recommend next steps. All behavioral questions were fairly typical.

    Turnaround was very quick: only a few days between application due date and first interview, then a week before second interview, then another 9 days before the offer.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nielsen (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Talked to the recruiters at career fair, had one interview before the decision process.
    Two interviewers, asked the typical behavioral questions and ones about my experience
     There were a few technical questions probably just to see how you approach scenarios and your analytical ability. They were very quick to give the outcome, so the whole process only took about a week.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen.

    Interview

    Very pleasant and structured, some difficult questions. My resume wasn't exactly lined up for the job but the interviewer seemed to have interest in my perspective... didn't make it past the personality test. But the process was a college recruiting event, then to a simple meet and greet, then a 1:1 interview on campus the next day. There is a very quick turn around for this and I didn't have much time to prepare but passed the 1:1 and they sent out a logic and personality test.

    Interview

    Attended the on campus job fair. Applied through university career center with resume and cover letter. On campus interviews followed by office-site interviews. The on campus interview was broken up into three main parts: behavioral questions, quantitative/ math based questions, and case questions. Nothing too out of the ordinary in terms of questions.
