    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    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

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

    Digital Traffic Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (West Los Angeles, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I applied during early December 2013 and received an email 1 month later from a recruiter requesting a 30 min phone screening. The phone screening with the recruiter was basic and went over the usual introduction points. I was then scheduled for 1 on 1 interview with the hiring manager at the West Los Angeles office. The interview was very laid back/casual, lasted the scheduled 30 minutes, and consisted of very cliche interview questions: 1. Why do you want to leave you current company? 2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 3. Why NBC Universal? 4. Can you learn new software quick? I did not get selected for a 2nd interview, but was not kept in the loop by the recruiter which made for a negative hiring process. NBC Universal recruiters: Please communicate better with candidates that are not selected.

    Interview Questions

    • There were not any difficult questions, I did most of the question asking. The interview was more of a casual conversation.   Answer Question

    Database Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Most of the questions were high-level, until I made it to the Director. The director asked more detailed and mature questions. At that point I thought it was a good place to work, but as I came to understand how things work, I realized that its the same-old club mentality. if you not part of crew, you have no shot of moving ahead or working on choice projects. This was a disturbing trend I started to notice. For the most part, if you're okay with just doing the same task year after year and dealing with a lot of politics then stay away

    Interview Questions

    • How many servers do you manage. What third party tools did I use. What cloud vendors did I use. How did I come be a DBA   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It was pretty straight forward, once they came to consensus that I was the best candidate

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Burbank, CA).

    Interview

    Contacted via email for an email screen. In the email screen must answer 4 short essays in 1 hour and send back. After 4 months was offered an in person interview. If you are not located in LA you must get yourself here. After the in person interview, in general wait about 3 months to hear back.

    Digital Distribution Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I got a referral through my school with the contact information of the interviewer. I sent my resume and cover letter and was contacted back after two days. The interview was set for a few days after that. There was one interview and subsequently I didn't get the offer, but was referred to another hiring manager who wanted to interview me for a different position. By then I had already decided on another internship so wasn't able to take it.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was very much like a conversation about the space and about my interest in it. Thus there weren't many "tough" questions.   Answer Question
