    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Viacom.

    Interview

    I interviewed for an accounting intern position with the Entertainment Group. The interview process was very basic. First, HR contacted me by phone and did a quick interview. They asked me which division of Viacom I'd like to work for and connected me with that division for the next step. Then, I went into the office and met with three different people of that division, one on one. The in-person interview was also very easy. They asked typical non-industry questions.

    Interview

    The interview process was average. Only interviewed with 2 people. Neither were very challenging. Did have to complete a short quiz in media math. Important to know the basics, even at an entry level. Long wait to start once I accepted the position.
