The phone interview was with the top production employees at ESPN. The interview went well it was relaxed and the staff seemed nice. They just asked what I liked about production and sports. Good interview overall.

    Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at ESPN in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The level of communication throughout the entire process was fantastic. ESPN responded to my online application in a timely manner. I started with a phone interview within a week of the initial contact. I was then flown to NYC for an interview with several people. My HR contact made all of my travel arrangements. All expenses were covered except parking at the airport. The next step was an interview at the Bristol location. Once again, all my expenses were covered. They could not have made the process any easier.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was when one individual asked my to solve a technical issue they were having, without my seeing the system. I am a visual person so this was very challenging.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The cost of benefits was too great given the salary they offered. Otherwise, I would have jumped at the chance to work with them.

    Technical Producer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at ESPN in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    the entire interview process was normal and expected... until the end. Did the initial phone screen with HR, then a phone call with someone in the management chain. All went well, so about 2 weeks after the initial calls, the in-person interview was scheduled with 3 people. Parking in their garage in Seattle was $31, and when I made a comment about the high cost of parking for 3 hours, the first person just laughed and said it was paid for full-timers (I was actually expecting validation, but I blew it off and laughed along with him, no biggie).
    Anyway, met with he first person, things went well, we seemed to hit it off. Met the 2nd person, things went OK, seemed like we missed connecting a bit, but I've had far worse interviews in my life. Met the 3rd person and got a strange vibe form the start. He seemed intimidated, and was clearly uncomfortable. It was weird to say the least. No biggie, it happens, and I did not get the job, as you might imagine.
    It was not a big deal, but the thing that chapped my hide more than anything was the fact that they told me they would make a decision within a few days, and then never got back with me! I sent one email every Thursday for 4 weeks straight asking for a status update (I knew I didn't get the job, but expected confirmation because, who really knows until they say No, right?).
    I never heard back from anyone so after 4 weeks I contacted HR, and of course they said no dice.
    I can tell you that even if the interview was that bad (which I do not think it was, as I've been the interviewer and the interviewee many times in my professional career), the LEAST they could have done was let me know I was no longer being considered. Totally unprofessional. I'm a big boy, I can handle bad news. To not tell someone the status of an interview after they've made an emotional, financial and time commitment is just about the worst thing a company can do, and ESPN/Disney would be ashamed if they knew they have employees who think this is OK. Karma comes around 2X, so I'm not losing any sleep, but be wary of the interview process with ESPN/Disney in Seattle.
