Senior Research Analyst Interview

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.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nielsen.

    Interview

    Hiring process was pretty straightforward...one telephonic interview with the line manager to assess candidature fit and basic experience etc
    Then an online aptitude test on basic logic and data interpretation skills - This is a very very basic level test asking basic aptitude questions on data interpretation...probability...2 small case case studies...some maths (Arithmetic) and English grammar questions...
    Then a final HR round asking basic expectations
    Overall the round is very transparent, the process is driven by the line or operational manager and if the first round goes well then depending on the urgency the entire process shouldn't take more than a couple of weeks

    Interview Questions

    • General questions on prior work experience...career goals...why Nielsen...expectations etc   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    However the salary levels are prefixed atleast in entry to mid mgr levels and are mostly non negotiable
