    Page Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    I had a generally positive experience with the Page Program hiring process, the only frustration being its duration. I applied in June online, video interviewed in July, participated in an in-person panel interview in August, and heard back 9 weeks later in November. Once getting into the program there is an additional wait because you can only enter when a current Page leaves. The program administrator was generally very responsive and nice, answering emails promptly (besides within that 9 week period). At the panel interview, I got a similarly pleasant vibe from the other interviews and employees. I would suggest researching the program and company thoroughly online before your interviews, and a poised, well-articulated presentation seemed better received than theatrics in the panel interview.

    Desktop Engineer (Contract) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Universal City, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Universal City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at NBCUniversal in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was the department manager and 3 subordinate engineers. It was a standard IT group interview, however, it was left to the lead engineer to conduct the discussion and questioning. The other engineers and manager only occasionally interjected with their questions or comments. It was a fair, if uninspired, process.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    First contacted for a video interview and given 2 days to complete. very quick and straight forward, 6 questions. All the questions were listed on here already except - what does team work mean to you and how do you view yourself in a team (something along those lines). About 2 days after I submitted it i got an email from HR about my availability for an interview. Went in 2 days later to meet with 3 account executives where they told me about the position and asked a few basic questions - why media sales? tell me about your resume. how did you work in a team at your last company? how do you manage your workload on a typical day?
    pretty quick and straight forward. you need to know show that you're a team player, take initiative and don't need to be babysat.
    Next stage is w/ Hiring manager and dept. head. Surprisingly more relaxed - more of a conversation along w/ a few behavioral questions.
