    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 5 months - interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through the C2C application. After a few weeks, was initially screened by HR and followed up about a month later with a video interview. A month after the video interview, and after receiving a false hiring due to a "systems glitch," interviewed with department head. A month later, and after many emails back and forth with HR about application status, got the hiring call from the department head previously interviewed with.

    Digital Media Delivery Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    First let me say that the guy that interviewed me was one of the most important people I have ever met. He started at the bottom, and with his skill, intelligence, and relentlessness, became the leader of the division. As I grew in my career, I found how important it was to fight for the guys under you just as hard as the guys above you. The interview wasn't so much about me, but a lot about where the team was headed. He was right all the way. In my three years of employment, everything he said that would happen, happened, and I had one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Hiring was fast and efficient. NBCUniversal is a perfect large sized technical company in my opinion.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was more of a feeler versus something that tested my technical skills. The interviewer was so good, asking me specific questions did not have to happen. It was like he could look at me and my posture and tell if I was right. I guess if he didn't like me, I would just be fired anyways....   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I knew how much the job was compensating initially. I was hired via a consulting company (Birlasoft) and the process was very simple.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at NBCUniversal in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for a position at one of NBC's cable networks. The HR contacts leading up to the interview were great to work with, and gave some helpful insights about what to expect. However, after interviewing, I didn't receive any update at all about the status of my application (and never did). A courtesy email, even if it had been an automated one, would have been greatly appreciated.

    Submitted application through employee referral, was contacted for an interview a week later. Did a virtual interview, then didn't hear back for about a month and a half. Was chosen to interview for a position within NBCUniversal/Universal Studios (2-on-1 phone conversation), but didn't hear the results of that for another two weeks. Overall, interviewing was a long process with limited communication in between.

    Communications Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Stamford, CT
    Anonymous Employee in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at NBCUniversal in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    First was contacted by an HR person for a quick phone screening. Mostly talked about my experience and what the job would be like. Then about 3 weeks later was contacted by a different HR person to set up another phone interview with the Senior VP of Communciations. My interview was supposed to be at 9am, they didn't call until 9:30 and told me they needed to push it back until 10. I didn't get a call until 11:15 am and thats when the interview happened which definitely threw me off a bit. I then got an automated email 2 weeks later that the position had been filled.
