    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Viacom.

    Interview Details

    First, I had a phone interview. Then I got 2 rounds onsite interviews. All the interviewers are very nice and they just asked me some routine questions. Nothing difficult.

    Questions I remembered: Why you want to intern with Viacom? Walk me through your resume. Talk more on 1-2 your previous internships. What areas are you interested in?

    Interview Details

    The Nickelodeon Creative Resources is the funnest place ever. My interview was so much fun, it felt more like a chat with people who already knew me, rather than a hard-pressed-where-do-you-see-yourself-in-5-years interview. You are going to learn so much, and what you'll be doing is going to be so much fun. Everyday was new, no twiddling your thumbs.

    Interview Details

    The entire process took less than a week. Once I scheduled and completed the phone interview I had my face-to-face interview the next week! It was very efficient and an easy process for such a large company! I'm sure each department differs in the interview process.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Viacom in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online some time ago and then one day, out of the blue, received a phone call from the intern recruiter at BET asking if I was available to come in for an interview that same day. I said yes, dressed professionally, and was on my way. When I got there I was the only dressed-up person in the office. It was clear that the attire there was business casual. Many were wearing blue jeans. I met with the woman interviewing me, who was very friendly and excited to speak to me. We looked over my resume together and discussed my past work. She asked me what I want to do in the industry and when I answered immediately with confidence, she was impressed and told me so. She didn't ask any of the typical interview questions that you prepare for. It felt more like a friendly conversation and then she asked me what my availability is. I didn't feel at all like she was trying to intimidate or test me. It was a very comfortable experience. She ended the interview saying she definitely wants me to get the internship, but that she first has to run it through another person before letting me know. She said that I would get an email/call within the next couple of days if I get it. The next day I got an email and then a call. I accepted the internship.

    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.
