    Communications Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    It was extremely quick for me as I was already a head-runner and someone selected for the position. But for most, it's lengthy and grueling.

    Negotiation Details
    Easy. Went over compensation. They liked the amount of time I was willing/wanting to commit to working at this position. Done.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at NBCUniversal in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Mainly spoke with HR over the period of several weeks, multiple phone and in-person interviews.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at NBCUniversal in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview was with a recruiter with whom I was given a brief tour of the facility and had discussion about possible positions. I then had another similar face to face with an area recruiter which covered much of the same material. I eventually had an interview with a hiring manager, roughly 20-minutes. Questions were basic about the job, a bit more pointed about personal interactions.
