Senior Research Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Nielsen (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2017.

Interview

I was called by a recruiter, and then had a phone interview followed by an onsite interview. Everything went smoothly and I was highly qualified for the role. The phone interview was with the hiring manager, and the onsite interview was with her manager. After being told I would hear from them in 2-3 weeks, I was completely ghosted. I followed up with all parties to see if they reached a decision and heard nothing back. When I logged into the job portal, the job was no longer listed. I find it to be completely unprofessional to not even respond and then delete the job posting entirely without even sending applicants a stock email.

It was nice and pretty simple, but you have to be prepared to unswer the usual questions as "what would be your dream job?". I am waiting for my newt interview with the team manager which was scheduled right after the same week. Will keep you posted on the next steps.

    Interview

    I was headhunted from my own country by a recruiter based in Dubai for a job that was based in Dubai. I got into a phone interview (Skype was not big yet that time) where 3-4 people were on the other line interviewing me. There was the HR person, someone else, and the head of the department I was going to join. The dept head led the questioning. The interview was pleasant enough and wasn't very difficult, but of course I had to be on the whole time and project confidence and strength. It was a pretty good experience.
