    Online application. 3 weeks to a month wait between applying and first contact. 1st interview: Contacted by a recruiter via email, discussed resume and a lot of behavioral questions (ex. describe a time when you disagreed with a supervisor). 2-3 months later contacted via email again. 2nd interview: Contacted by the hiring manager in the department for which I applied. Discussed resume, more behavioral questions. A week later: 3rd interview: Contacted by another member of the department, talked about resume, and asked specific questions about the department.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NBA in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, the process took 3+ months. The first round is via skype with an HR reprsentative. It consists of basic behavioral questions. The second round is via skype with another HR representative alongside a current associate. This elaborates on first round questions, asks more hypotheticals specifically as they relate to your resume experience ("tell me a time you struggled, describe when you took leadership, etc"). The Third round in New York consists of a short quiz, a writted case study test, and finally a panel interview/presentation in front of top executives. During this they will ask you about specific departments you'd like to work for and different challenges facing the NBA's business.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at NBA in December 2014.

    Interview

    During the first round, I had a phone interview detailing the Associate program with a few general questions. The second round was more formal via Skype with HR members and a current Associate. We went through my resume, strengths/weaknesses, and general knowledge of the league and current issues. The interview consisted of mostly behavioral questions. The current associate was helpful in answering questions about the program generally. In total, the interview lasted about 30 minutes.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBA (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Call with HR three weeks after I submitted an application. Call went well, then radio silence. Another three weeks went by before I got the next email asking to set up in-persons. In-person meetings the following week, then more the week after that. It's now been 8 weeks since I initially submitted for the position and still no decision. At this point I've already moved on. Everyone I met with was very nice, but there is no way they'll attract top talent dragging their feet this long during the hiring process, treating prospective employees this way.
