    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MGM Studios (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    The process took about two weeks. It's simple to get an interview if you have any sort of connection, but there are also ways to apply through their online database. There was one interview, mainly behavioral with a couple of questions based in entertainment and TV specifically. The follow up consisted of a script coverage assignment, and then I heard from them with an offer within a week.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MGM Studios in April 2013.

    Interview

    - Called the studio for information on how to apply. No online application in my case. Sent resume and cover letter to internship program email address. - Month went by before I called to follow-up, turns out the email address they initially gave me to send my material to was the wrong one. HR receptionist gave me the right email and two days after that I received a call from a recruiter to schedule an interview. - Interview took place over the phone. Lasted about 20 minutes. Basic questions about past experience, future goals, why MGM, etc. Nothing too out of the ordinary.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at MGM Studios (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Interview went smooth, filled out additional paperwork before interview. Everyone was nice and courteous and I thought it went very well. Two weeks passed by after the interview and I hadn't heard back from anyone. I had been following up ever since the interview but to no avail. I finally receive an email about a month from the interview stating an "internal candidate" had been chosen.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at MGM Studios (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    3 month long interview process. I met everyone in the department and all of the VPs/EVPs and even the COO (which seemed a bit unnecessary for the level that I was being hired at). Would've been hired except they ended up letting my would be "boss" go.
