Application Details

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ESPN.

Interview Details

All Star questions during the interview. If you just google STAR interview questions you will know how to answer every question. First met with Director and then with Managers. Be very careful and ask them if this is a new position and if they are replacing someone. If they are replacing someone ask them if this involuntary or voluntary and what they thought that employee could have done different to a successful employee. If they don't tell you, run as fast as you can!!!

    Had a phone interview 1st, an onsite interview the next day and was hired on the 3rd day! Unheard of these days but the way it was before 9/11 and how it should still be. Old school rules!

    The process took a dayinterviewed at ESPN in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume through their online system in Aug, and by end of Sept I had a request for an interview. Keep in mind, the initial interview is done via HR and it's not necessarily long but very succinct.

    She asked basic questions, my experience with sports and with certain sporting affiliations. Once that interview was over, I waited almost another month prior to hearing anything (even with follow up) simply because the next person who needed to interview my was a Vice President of a certain division. So that interview was less than 25 minutes (also on the phone) Questions asked: problem solving questions, what I think about hs sports and females in HS sports. These questions were obviously directed to a new venture ESPN is undertaking. Although I thought the interview went well, perhaps I was not the right fit (i..e not sports oriented enough) for role they were looking to fill as my repeated attempts to follow up with HR have gone unreturned for status updates. It is after all ESPN, there were probably 100 applicants....(and around the time of the Steve Phillips situation!!)

    I was definitely appreciative of the fact that I made it to the second round of interviewing. At least I am on the right track :-)
