- No OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
Applied through my school's career services. Typical interview process with standard HR questions using STAR technique. Not a lot of technical questions, more like stepping through the resume. Recruiter was overall very approachable

I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal.
First there's an online interview where you record your responses and send them in. I made it to the last round of the process where you go to 30 Rock for the group interview. The hardest part is the 2 minuet presentation, in my opinion.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY).
It was for a freelance position. The interviewer mostly went over the job description and then gave us a test. I knew it was going to a current events test but the questions were mainly focused on US history- knowing specific dates and names of historical figures. It was a good interview but not the field for me.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied to several jobs on NBC's website. I was contacted by someone in HR and interviewed in-person in NYC. The interview was relaxed, friendly and comprehensive. I was told I would be contacted again. There are numerous departments and recruiters. The in-person interview was very positive. I was emailed and a phone interview was scheduled. I did endless research and was completely prepared for the telephone interview which was conducted by an international recruiter. Within the first 30 seconds, I knew I wouldn't get the job. I've had 15+ years of experience but she was looking for specifics.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2015.
First I get a "canned" email that HR wants to interview me. What I get instead is a recording app of which I must give my permission for this to happen. It's very poor method of presentation and I would highly advise not to. When I decided this was not for me, I was told by HR there's too many applicants...

Very long. The process took nearly 2 months before they decided they want someone more junior. It started with a phone screening and 3 different visit to the company's office

- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY).
I had a phone screen with the recruiter that went well. We left off with that she would reach out to the hiring manager to schedule next round of interviews.However, I never heard back from her or the hiring manager even after trying to reach out 4 times via email to check on my status. I have never worked with a HR or recruiting department that is so unprofessional and just flat out ignores you, especially after mentioning that they would schedule a second round of interviews.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at NBCUniversal.
It was phone interview with HR. HR said they will get back to me within few days but never heard back. I also send few follow up email but nothing. That is the only problem is that HR never response, even if I am not selected, I wish they would just say so then we can move on rather than hoping that no response, candidate will get the point and move on. HR should be trained in providing timely feedback to candidates they screen even it is a no.

The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal.
1 HR interview, 2 interviews with the hiring manager. Good people but Interviews were rushed and fast. They never got back to me afterward or closed the loop to let me know they hired someone. Found out via another employee

I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in June 2015.
Took four months and the process was pretty heartbreaking. You wait a month to hear about each round. The first round is a video interview with no one on the other end. The questions are fairly simple (what is something we wouldn't know based on your resume, name a time you messed up in a working setting, ect.), but the process is weird because there's no one on the other end and no energy to feed off of. The second round is a panel interview. You are asked one question in front of a group of 5-10 people then interviewed one on three (with the page program hr reps) and then a 2 minute presentation of yourself. It's supposed to be creative and funny. The presentation is scary, but overall the experience is not that bad although it's long. I really enjoyed the panel and thought it taught me a lot about interviewing. I found out 4 weeks after my panel that I was not accepted. What really made me upset was that they let me know through an automated response after I had worked with them for so long. So impersonal. My friend waited 4 months before hearing she was rejected, so just a heads up it could be a long time.
