    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ESPN.

    Interview Details

    You have to take a sports assessment test before you're called for an interview. If you get an interview, they just asked me a lot about my resume and work experience and then they went on to ask me current event questions and what kind of graphic I would make.

    Advertising Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ESPN in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Whole process took about 2 months. They were very upfront about how HR and their hiring process can be slow though even though they were eager to fill the position. 2 phone interviews, a 2.5 hour in-person interview and at the very end a recruiter phone call before they called me with a decision. Very smooth process.

    Interview Questions
    • Not a stats job so nothing tricky. Felt more like they were trying to see if you fit with the culture rather than if you could do the job (which should be obvious from getting an interview in the first place).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate, very nice package.

    The Superior Group, a recruiter found my resume. His big client is ESPN. I had two phone interviews. 1:1 with recruiter. 1:1 with ESPN to include a conference call with two managers. ESPN interviewed 3 other people besides me. I thought I was not picked for the job but ESPN showed interest in me. The process was pretty easy and straight forward. There is an intensive background check. All new employers are also required to get photographed for credentials to be inside the building.

    Statistics Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at ESPN.

    Interview Details

    The interview questions were reasonable and straight forward, but the Sports Assessment test was more challenging that I had anticipated because of the time limit that the system imposes upon the interviewee. Although I thought I had a reasonable amount of sports knowledge, I learned that there is much more to follow if I want to work as a statistics analyst.
