    Director Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at CBS Corp (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied initially through LinkedIn over a weekend. Got a call first thing on Monday from a CBS recruiter, who seemed nice and responsive at first. Then I was asked to come in on Thursday to interview with 3 people, who would make a decision. I wanted to come in the following week due to planned travel, however, the recruiter demanded that I come in Thursday and I adjusted my travel schedule to make the interview appointment. The VP informed me that they had two other candidates and I should hear back within a couple weeks. Feedback immediately following the interview was very positive. I followed up and left a message with the recruiter at the end of those two weeks and never heard anything back. That was very unprofessional of the recruiter never to follow-up and leaves me with a bad impression of CBS. CBS does not reimburse travel expenses for interviews either. I have taken a position elsewhere and after speaking with people from PwC who worked with CBS, they told me to consider it a blessing that I did not end up working there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at CBS Corp (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Quick response after resume submission. However, it all went downhill from there. Had a successful first round interview and was invited back to round 2. Was told I should hear something back within a week..........2 weeks later I reach out to the recruiter to be told they were still interviewing candidates (even though I was previously told they had selected their final 3 and would make a decision). Recruiter said he would let me know within a few days...........A month later still no word. I think it is extremely rude that such a recognized company seems to have no regard or respect for a candidate's time and effort. I understand we are all busy, but the least you can do is let someone know if they got the position or not.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at CBS Corp (New York, NY) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Sent my resume and about a week later I got an email message asking to set up a telephone interview. I was interviewed by a manager based in LA. He said I had a great resume and proceeded to ask me some questions about my work experience. At the end of the phone interview he said he would call me with his boss in "a couple of days," but the call never came. When I sent him an email asking when or if there would be a second call, he did not respond. Oh well, it really is their loss because just one week later I got an offer making 30% more without the need to relocate.
