    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Singapore (Singapore)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied directly on the company's website and received a call from the HR for a quick phone interview. It was a casual chat mainly to find out which positions are you interested in. Next, a link was sent for the second step of the interview process.

    Everything was done online. There were 2 parts:
    1. Verbal reasoning and numerical reasoning
    2. Online interview -- where there were 3 videos that allow re-taking, and 1 that requires 1 take.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    First was a phone interview asking me why I wanted to leave my current job and why I applied with them. After that I was told to do an online assessment.

    They followed up relatively quickly with a first face to face with 3 managers. Asked general questions about why I wanted to leave and why I wanted to join them. They asked about what I did in my previous job and how I would be valuable to the company. Overall it was general and went well.

    After that hr told me interview went great and there was no need for a second interview and they would let me know of the results.

    After a few days they told me that they would like to invite me for a second round of interview with the director. Interview consisted a lot of technical questions associated to the role

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Singapore (Singapore)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    HR did a brief interview over the phone. Then proceeded to do an online test. The HR personnel would then call you back to say if you have passed or not, and you will get an interview only if you pass the test.

    The interview was ok, was supposed to be interviewed by a manager, associate director, and director, however, only the manager was around.

    The manager thought I was a good fit, and hence I had another phone interview with the director.

    Applied directly through their website, took 2-3 weeks to get back to me. First stage was a phone screen. Called back later in the week to arrange for me attend an interview at Nielsen. Second stage was an case study assessment where I was given data in excel sheet and I had to create a 15 min presentation within 1 hour. (Key in doing well is being able to analyse and explain well, they wanted to test my analysis and reasoning skills). Another 15 min for Q&A. Third stage, after the presentation was the interview by two managers of Retailer Services.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (Singapore (Singapore)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Case study where you have to plot graphs and present. You are given 1 hour to prepare but 1 hour isnt really alot of time. Case study was quite difficult and you have to make assumptions.
    Manager then asked questions.
    Then there was a normal interview (Strengths weaknesses and behavioural questions)
