    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at NBCUniversal in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I learned about the position through another position I was applying for through the company because of a contact I had made at an Entertainment Panel. Because of this referral, I was put in contact directly to the supervisor's assistant to interview. I completed one interview, and was also asked to interview for another department. Through both interviews, I was asked to intern for both departments and split my days up between the two. it was a great experience, I interviewed directly with the supervisors.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at NBCUniversal in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Pretty standard interview. Asked about experience with web-based content. They didn't ask too many questions about myself and it was mostly conversational. I brought my portfolio to showcase my skills, and though I think they appreciated the professionalism, didn't really look through it. Had two interviews, both less than 20 minutes, and was hired for the position.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked what type of entertainment I was interested in and asked me about the movie/film industry.   View Answer

    Creative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Studio City, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Studio City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at NBCUniversal in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    My older brother's colleagues had a contract position in their new releases marketing department and passed my resume along to upper management, who contacted me for an interview. I was inverviewed by two people simulatenously, which they noted was the first step before interviewing with VPs and higher ups. Turns out the position I thought I was referred to was not the exact position they were interviewing for, so there was a bit of initial confusion during the process. I did, however, make it clear that I was interested in both of the positions, as they liked what was on my resume. I followed up several times with both interviewers weeks following, but failed to hear back at all. The interview itself was brief, with an overview of the position/responsibilities, and general questions about me and my career aspirations.

    Human Resources Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Studio City, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Studio City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at NBCUniversal in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the Human Resources internship the week before Thanksgiving online via one of my campus career resource websites (where I found the listing). I received an email from one of their Talent Acquisition Coordinators interested in having a phone interview the following week. At the end of the initial phone interview, the coordinator immediately told me that she would like to meet me for an in-person panel interview with one of her associates.

    The following week I met with both of them at their Talent Acquisition Building in Studio City, right next to Universal Studios. The interview was casual and overall a pleasant experience. About two hours after the interview I received a phone call from my initial contact offering me the internship.

    Interview Questions
    • Can you describe a time where you had to step up and take the reins of a project?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As I was in the interview process for other internships, I asked for a week to make my decision. Although she was hesitant and seemed a bit down that I did not immediately accept the offer, she respectfully allowed me that much time.
