    Submitted resume, was contacted and had to take an hour long problem-solving test, then had one interview on-campus. Problem solving test was not too difficult, but was a little stressful.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen in November 2014.

    Interview

    Had on-campus interview that was lengthy but didn't seem to dive into who the candidate actually was. Be ready for a lot of behavioral questions with a couple of strategic thinking thrown in there as well. It was easy and helpful that the person in the room was so friendly, but she had trouble acting like I wasn't just a number.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Bloomington, IN) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume to a recruiter at career fair. Got selected for one 30 minute interview, which included one case question. This is only the case for the internships. Full-timers will have multiple rounds of interviews and will be invited to the office. There was a pre-night the night before the interview to prepare and network. Everyone was very natural and not scary at all. Everyone dresses casually but definitely suit up for the interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through college, very easy process and met nice people who worked there. The interview was what I expected. Mostly behavioral but 2 case questions. The application consisted of submitting resume online and taking a logical test. Very similar to the LSAT. Not really mathy just more questions that really make you think. I thought it was pretty hard but I guess i didn't do too badly because I moved on to the interview round. (I think you need to get a certain amount correct to move on).

    On campus interview that was mostly behavioral with a couple small case studies. Followed two weeks later with an invite to interview on-site.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen in October 2012.

    Interview

    I dropped my resume through my university career service as well as through the Nielsen careers site. A week after the resume drop deadline, I was contacted for a first round interview, consisting of a behavioral and a 2hr math/writing test. The test was what I would say, probability, finite, and business math problems with some writing questions as well. The writing portion asked to write a letter stating bad news to a CEO, nothing too difficult, just assessing business writing skills.

    I completed the exam and then went to my interview. The interview was pretty standard and the lady that interviewed me seemed genuinely interested in my story. Normal, tell me about yourself, major, why do you want to be at Nielsen, how did you first hear about Nielsen and additional questions, format. About halfway through the interview they asked me to advice a client that was debating on where to invest his money. I would consider this a mini case, mostly focusing on your logic and points (there was no 'right' answer).

    I didn't hear back from Nielsen for over a month. I knew some of my friends had received rejection letters so I decided to email my interviewer. The next day, she emailed me back and the day after I got a phone call extending me an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • An investor comes to you with $100k. He doesn't know whether to invest in a pizza chain (many stores but ehh pizza quality) or a boutique pizzeria (only one store but everyone raves about the pizza). Where would you recommend he invests his money?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate about a salary - it was my first offer and for an internship. I was given options as far as locations, where there was business need, and I picked from the choices.
