    Desktop Engineer (Contract) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Universal City, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate 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 through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at NBCUniversal in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first interviewed at a conference which went well, pretty casual questions and good vibes. After that I had to do a video interview ( which apparently is supposed to be first). I thought it was awful since you are using a video tool and are given a question and then timed to record your answer. I much rather talk to someone than watch myself talk on webcam. However I answered the questions fairly well i guess. Lastly I was given a phone interview which was also pretty short and casual. Overall it was a good interview process.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    It was extremely quick for me as I was already a head-runner and someone selected for the position. But for most, it's lengthy and grueling.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at NBCUniversal in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I learned about the position through another position I was applying for through the company because of a contact I had made at an Entertainment Panel. Because of this referral, I was put in contact directly to the supervisor's assistant to interview. I completed one interview, and was also asked to interview for another department. Through both interviews, I was asked to intern for both departments and split my days up between the two. it was a great experience, I interviewed directly with the supervisors.
