    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Comcast Spotlight in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an online application and then was invited to a phone interview with the recruiter, Meagan. She called from east coast, so remember the time difference if you are in a non-EST time zone. Meagan was very nice and she asked me about my prior internship experience, especially my vendor experience. The phone interview last about 15 minutes.

    Interview Details

    Excellent hiring process. Very clear about what the job would entail and the expectations for measuring success. Once I accepted, a recruiter guided me through the process of hiring, which was also excellent. However, know that this is your chance to state your intentions upfront -- if you want to get ahead here, start saying so in the interview, because at a large company it will take time, even if you're a super-star.

    Interview with HR. Then interview with hiring manager -- who kept me waiting fifteen minutes before the interview. He was brusque and rude. Told me he had people with twenty years experience and that I didn't match up to that even though I have the same.

    Digital Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Comcast Spotlight in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online (referred through LinkedIn) and received a request to set up a phone interview with a recruiter about 4 days later. The phone interview was set up for about a week later.

    Before the phone interview with the recruiter, I received a call from the hiring manager (at the location that would be hiring). I talked with her on the phone and answered the typical "interview" type questions. I was asked to come in for an in person interview in 2 weeks. They asked that I prepare a 5 minute presentation on any topic of my choice.

    Following that call, I spoke with the recruiter who asked more standard/generic interview questions but was really nice, super encouraging and helpful in explaining more about the position. She also gave me some tips for the presentation.

    I did the in-person interview and met with 4 people in the office. Did the presentation twice.

    I was asked to come back in again to meet with a few more team members and to have a conference call with a remote team in a different state. From there I sent over my references.

    They extended the offer the following day. The whole process took about 3 weeks from beginning to them making an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Comcast Spotlight in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got called from hiring manager THEN got call from human resources to fill application. Had phone interview with hiring manager, who said he was in the process of interviewing. It has now been THREE months and a) he has still not hired anyone and b) the human resource person does not know either. Then I was told they were revamping the department and they might start interviewing again. It's a waste of time. I should have billed them for my gasoline.
