    Interview

    I filled out the application on a wednesday, and received a call back that friday. Went in for the interview on a tuesday. The interview was at a very nice hotel, and the Trainer was easy to talk to BUT she was very serious about what you knew about the business. Review those videos, and be informed about what Nielsen is! The employees love their job, and they look to hire people who will love it as much as they do.
