    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The process begins with an email from college relations asking you to fill out a form with your department and channel interests.

    Once they have this information, they recommend a specific department and channel for you to interview with. They ask you to email them directly to set up an interview either in person or on the phone.

    Then you have the interview, which typically lasts about 30 minutes. At this company, most people just want you to have the right personality. They recognize you are just interviewing for an internship so it isn't difficult or out of the ordinary. Make sure and talk about your passion of the brand and ask them questions to establish a conversation.

    interviewed at Viacom in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was quickly contacted by a member in HR. He then scheduled a phone call that wasn't really an interview, but more of a get to know me. He asked me what division I would be interested in working in and then quickly referred me to that divisions manager. I contacted the division manager and then had a quick, simple interview. It was pretty much me running her through my resume and my interests.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Viacom.

    Interview Details

    Interview was very casual – I was trying to get a sense of the environment, and what the day-to-day entailed as I was interviewing for a field outside of my study. Interviewer (my supervisor, eventually) was friendly and tried to learn about what I wanted to get out of the internship as well. There were no "trick" questions but definitely a few standard "what is your weakness" ones. Be enthusiastic about the company and the opportunity to learn from them. I think they like to see that you are gauging the company/culture as well

    Process took 4 weeks. 1 interview with 3 rounds - SSE + AE + Director of Client Services. The HR interview came second.

Cool people, cool company & cool location.
