Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen.

Interview

I applied to this position online, was called in for an interview, and was hired. The whole process only took about 2 weeks or less. The interview went well and it was easy. The interviewers were very laid back and informal. Perhaps a little too informal. I met with several people during my interview and they asked me your standard, run-of-the-mill interview questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter within a week. After the initial conversation, had a second phone interview within a week with the hiring manager. The HR recruiter was lovely to speak with. The hiring manager would condescendingly laugh at answers throughout the interview. I was told I would either hear from HR or the recruiter, but have not heard anything (something that seems to be a common trend in hiring practices today).

    Interview

    Email from recruiter to set up a phone interview two days after applying through Nielsen website. First phone interview was with recruiter, then a phone interview with hiring manager the following day. One week later was brought in for a face to face with hiring manager, their manager and a peer. Great experience, beautiful office and friendly people!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    I was called several weeks after sending my resume through LinkedIn. The HR screener was pretty cold and robotic. Basic questions that you would expect: experience, ambitions and salary expectations. I was then sent a link to an online aptitude test and never heard back again. I assume I didn't do very well. Still, some follow up would be appreciated.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Chicago, IL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume online; recieved an email 2 weeks later to set up an screening call with HR. After, completed an online test (personality/logic, similar to "games" portion of LSAT) and was contacted the next business day to schedule face-to-face interviews. Met 1 week later with 3 people in the office; 3 45-minute interviews, all with a different interveiw approach: 1) explain work style and approach; 2) answer how you would deal with sample client issues; 3) technical related - analysis of sample regression model and some simple problem solving from there. Offer extended the next business day.

    Interview Questions

    • Give an example of a time you missed a deadline, and how you resolved the issue. Sounds simple, but it was actually difficult for me to think of a time.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiating is still onging.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nielsen (Westport, CT).

    Interview

    First a phone interview as screening, second a test (math/problem solving, general work situations), finally in person interviews with about 5 people (mostly groups of 2).

    Interview Questions

    • Describe an experience where a client/customer was not satisfied with your work   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I merely accepted the offer they provided. Not any negotiation nor would there have been as most positions don't have a huge salary range unless you go higher in the company.
