    Executive Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at NBCUniversal in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied in June on the NBCUniversal C2C Website. After almost 2 months, I finally heard back and was asked to participate in a video interview. The link to the interview would expire within about 5 days. I did the interview and the interface was a bit complicated. The interview consisted of 7 questions; for each question you were given 30 seconds of preparatory time and 2 minutes to answer. If, at the end of the interview, I was unhappy with the results, I had one chance to redo the entire interview. A week later, I was emailed that I was being considered for the Executive Office Internship. The next day, I received an email directly from the executive offices staff to schedule a phone interview. The interviewers were very nice and spent about half of my 20 minute interview telling me about the position that I was being considered for. A little over a week later, I got a call with my offer.

    Sports Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the website and was then interviewed by an HR representative. It was a great interview, but took a long time to hear back from them. It was the first time that they had an internship program with NBC Sports so it was a bit disorganized. The interview was really engaging and once I heard back that I had gotten the position it took about a week longer to hear back on what department I would be working with.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was very pleasant. I met with a recruiter, HR manager, hiring manager, and other employees all in the same day. Everyone was really nice. Most questions had to do with my work background, accomplishments, why I want to work for the company, and times I solved a challenge, etc. The rest was more about figuring out if my personality was a good fit for the office (small talk). Recruiters are very good at following up and getting back to you after the process.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    There was an initial interview with HR before I was brought into an in-person interview with my supervisor. It felt like a Super Saturday type interview where supervisors from different departments were all in one big room simultaneously interviewing potential interns. The interview was fairly straightforward and nothing unexpected. They asked about my editorial background and samples of stories I have written as well as samples of articles I would want to write for AH.
