She said they will make a decision that same day.

Interview Details – Interviewed with HR and was scheduled to interview with a communications rep at MTV. It took the rep weeks to email me about the interview when it was only supposed to take one day. Then she didn't call me on the day she scheduled for the phone interview. She emailed me the following day asking why I didn't call her for the interview. I've never needed to call the employer for a phone interview in the past. The situation was very sketchy. I decided not to pursue the position any further. A few months later, HR emailed me asking if I was still interested in interning at MTV. I had already taken another internship at that point.

Interview Details – Hiring process was normal for entertainment: called in, walked into reception, then called to the hiring manager's office. Best to really know the culture here, as if you dress corporate-y (suit, slacks, tie) it may not work unless you're applying for a lawyer job. Many people dressed very trendy, cool. Flip-flops were normal. My hiring manager interviewed me while wearing a sundress and barefoot (it was late springtime). Casual-cool enviro, with hip, in-the-know undertones.
Interview Question – The most difficult question was "Do you have any questions for me?" You always have to have at least one question, so I had to create something. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at MTV Networks.
Interview Details – Was given an in-person interview after having a former employer recommend me for the position. The interview took place at the Santa Monica office and lasted a little under an hour. I met with 3 members of the ad team: one account executive and two sales service executives. The questions were very straightforward: what experience do you have, why would you like to work for us and not someone else, where do you see yourself in 5 years.
Interview Question – What were you for Halloween and why? Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at MTV Networks.
Interview Details – Received an email for an interview, scheduled it for later that week. Interview went wonderfully, really connected with who I would be replacing and working under. The next day I received a call from the hiring manager who wanted to schedule a meeting with me. We did so for the next week - interview with her was a little more stiff. Company then took a month to get back to me only after weeks worth of contact and checking in, this felt very rude to me.
