    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Bengaluru (India)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The process started with a written test that consisted of 10 questions purely Math-based, and two case studies which can be attempted with a basic knowledge of market research. Henceforth, there were two interview rounds that were purely technical. Strong statistics and econometric skills are required to answer all the questions. There were some questions based on logical reasoning as well. Overall, the process was tough but a good experience overall.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nielsen.

    Interview

    The first stage comprised of an aptitude test and a casual interview with HR. In the second stage I was interviewed by two managers which was the most challenging part because of the nature of the questions they asked. The third stage was a Skype interview with two more managers, they also asked some difficult questions but it was more chilled, and they seemed to be trying to get to know my personality most of the time. The interview process was challenging but if you are familiar with general marketing facts and you have stamina to answer some brainteaser questions, you'll be fine. Also with the brainteasers, they are usually trying to see your thought process so there is no right or wrong answer most of the time.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined due to personal reasons, nothing to do with the company itself.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Nielsen in July 2015.

    Interview

    Initially they have a written test which includes statistics and logical questions. If you clear that, post that they conduct telephonic interview purely based on statistics.
    Also, if you have the knowledge of R, it'll be beneficial for you.

    It took 4 months to schedule an interview after written test. As I was located away, had 2 rounds of telephonic calls once with Hiring Manager and another with Director

    Interview Questions

    • 1st Interview round you are given a graph, a table and asked to analyse looking at the numbers what would be the right decision. They are interested in knowing your thought process. Lot of logic related and what if questions. Your answers will be scrutinized.
      2nd interview with Director was purely number based. Probability, Percentage and allied Mathematics tools. Please sit with a calculator. The questions will be tweaked once you come to conclusion. So be clear.
