I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at The Nielsen Company.Interview Details
First round interview was from on campus recruiting. After submitting my application, I was asked to take an analytic assessment + business essay. The test consisted of 10 business math questions involving profit and stats. I was told a week later that I had an in person interview. This test is now online instead of in person. You never get your score and HR keeps it under wraps. I've heard that it's a strong predictor of performance at Nielsen once you actually get here, but that's heresay...
There was one 1-1 45 minute interview where a few behavioral and marketing/analytical questions were asked. Basic walk me through your resume. Lots of tell me a time when you were challenged, tell me about your weaknesses. Had a question about market share.
Second round interview was at a Nielsen office, three 1-1 interviews that were 45 min long with Director-VP level persons. Again lots of behavioral questions, what was your proudest accomplishment, when were you most challenged, etc. A few analytical questions like a company is considering changing price, what should they consider. Someone is launching a new product, what should they watch out for.Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsI tried, no room for negotiation. I was offered the average market based on my research so with no previous work experience, I had no leverage.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
