    Recorded a video interview with prompted questions and I had 1 minute to answer each question.

    Summer Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Discovery Communications.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was asked to do a recorded online interview. I totally flubbed the first question because I was stressing about the 30-second time limit instead of thinking of what to say. I got an email saying my interview made it to the next step, and that they would send it to the individual departments. Yesterday, two weeks since the email, someone from Discovery looked at my LinkedIn, but I still have not been otherwise contacted since applying a month ago. Who knows.
