Very Difficult Interview
Director Interview (Negative Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at NBCUniversal in November 2013.
Interview Details – No call back for three weeks
Interview Question – interviewer had little understanding of position requirements Answer Question
Director Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at NBCUniversal.
Interview Details – A friend submitted my resume via the referral program. Spoke to a recruiter, but never heard back. Then, the same recruiter reached out about 8 months later for another similar role.
The process consisted of a phone interview with the recruiter, primarily confirming my experience and fit for the role. Then, I had 4 separate interviews with direct supervisors, the head of the department, and finally VP of HR.
Got an offer about 4 weeks from being first contacted by the recruiter. Was able to negotiate just a bit to reach my minimum base salary requirement. You have to pass a background check to start.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected. All the interviews were pretty straightforward to discuss my past experience and interest in the role. Felt like a lot of it was based on cultural fit as well. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Got an offer by phone and asked for a bit more to reach my desired minimum. They came back the same day with a bit more and I agreed. Benefits did not seem negotiable when I inquired.
Very Difficult Interview
Director Interview (Positive Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at NBCUniversal in April 2008.
Interview Details – 2 rounds of 30 minute 1-on-1 interviews. 10 interviews total + an HR fit interview.
Negotiation Details – Was able to negotiate a little. But there are well established comps- so hard to move the needle too much.
Director Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at NBCUniversal in June 2010.
Interview Details – For a director position, after a few min of small resume talk, the interviewer went directly into a case about programming prior to explaining the position or group, which caught me off guard.
Interview Question – Where would you launch a channel and what genre would it be? Answer Question
