    Application Details

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

    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 applied 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 applied 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.

    Interview Questions
    • Didn't get any difficult questions. Simply, "what do you do day-to-day at your current job?"   Answer Question

Overall, interviewing was a long process with limited communication in between.
