    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Mediacorp (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    Lengthy-but it seems dependent on the hiring manager. Interview more to access chemistry between the hiring manager and employee.No phone screening, could be due to internal referral. Process was quick.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Mediacorp.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted between hiring manager and HR. Interview for Marketing Manager, but turns out that job is changed in the middle of interview. The hiring manager confirms her interest in me right away on the spot, even before HR does the background check and questioning. The offer letter only came 3 weeks later from HR. HR process is very slow. Please be careful on the job advertisement and asked before going for interview. In my case, the ad was not the same as the role being offered! Restructuring is an ongoing process. Do avoid this company if you can!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Mediacorp.

    Interview

    Was only asked to introduce myself and give details about the things I did in school. Then was told to write a short commentary about recent entertainment news, and return the commentary back to the interviewers by the next working day. I think this was to check if I was up-to-date with entertainment news.

    Trailer Producer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Mediacorp in July 2014.

    Interview

    Wasn't bad at all. The interviewers asked a bunch of fairly radical questions that seemed to make sense by the end when they tied them all up. I guess the only sore point was that if they were thinking of me as a potential candidate for the job I'd have to travel at my own expense. It - however - wouldn't have been a bad deal personally. It's just not what a lot of others would expect.

    Interview Questions

    • The most radical question was if I was in a relationship. This made sense for a person who would be looking to hire a candidate from outside the country.   Answer Question

    - since its contact base as long as you have done similar work and you meet the language requirements generally people who apply get the job. There is always high turn-over so many open positions.

    They are very tight on their salary offer and their base even for bachelors starts at about $2300. Would recommend for people right out of polytechnic and want to learn with the job and grow.

    Interview

    Slow hiring process/2 rounds of interview. They first called me to arrange for an interview 3 weeks in advance. I went for the interview last week and called the HR at the end of the week to enquire about the outcome of the interview as I had another job offer. HR said they usually take 2 weeks to get back to you! But they agreed to help me check. I just got a call today for a second interview but I've alrdy accepted another job offer.
