Sales Assistant Interview

Sales Assistant
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at NBCUniversal.

Interview Details – I recently interviewed for the Sales Assistant position and it went extremely fast. This interview was done via webcam and I was given 6 questions.You have 30 secs to prep for the question and then 60 seconds to talk. There is no REDO The first question was a written question and it only asked, "What are your salary requirements?" The other questions are as follows: Why do you want to work in Sales? Describe a time when you had to do out of the box thinking. What is one academic or professional achievement that you are most proud of? Describe a time when you worked in a group, what was your role? What are your career goals?

Difficult Interview

Line Producer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

I applied through a staffing agency and interviewed at NBCUniversal.

Interview Details – First interview was over the phone. Second third and fourth interviews were on a set day. Take a full day to get through the interviews, they will keep you there. HR will do a personality test which is easy to answer. Be honest because you want to fit as much as they want to make sure you fit into the group. They asked me back 3 more times. In the end I did not get the gig, they wanted more ad agency experience than I offered.

Interview Question – there were no shocking questions. I guess I was a bit thrown with the constant asking if I had more ad agency work when clearly my resume stated I did not. Other than that it was all standard questions all very fair and fun.   Answer Question
