    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Nielsen Company in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got an email from recruiter after 1 month of submitting application through
    process involves-written test, telephonic interview and few more interviews

    got test paper to solve in one hour. very lengthy and confusing. needed to take out grammar and all whatever mistakes were there in question paper. there was total 25 questions. few were mathematics, some confusing case study, one question on "proudest moment of yours" and last was case study on "UNISOAP"
    case study: UNISOAP is soap for multiple uses. you can use it as detergent, as body wash etc etc...
    you as a consultant have to do SWOT analysis

    cut off was minimum 15 grammatical errors from the paper as well as sectional cut offs.

    frustrating procedure. test copies were not checked for more than next 10 days.
    called HR , and she just told me...I think you couldn't clear the test. i asked for my scores but she refused to do so.

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
