    Service Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    Standard format no major surprises. Initial video interview thereafter a face to face. Advised HR would contact me within a couple of days.
    The issue was I never had any feedback even after chasing HR and hiring manager multiple times.

    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at NBCUniversal in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interview was casual, straightforward, and the questions were relatively easy. I was surprised that it was 1:1 interview. One person makes an entire decision- it doesn't look very objective or professional to me. Also the HR was unorganized so I heard nothing for over two weeks. There was no phone number or anything from the HR email either. The whole process was clumsy and I had not a good impression about the company.

    Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at NBCUniversal in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very lengthy and messy! The whole process lasted over 3 months and in that time I had a telephone interview and four face-to-face interviews! Very little candidate management throughout and the feedback that I received at the end was minimal (admittedly the recruiter apologised for this). Just a complete waste of time and anyone less patient would have dropped out of the process much earlier.

    Interview Questions
    • The approach varied... either just chatted through my career history, or was asked specific questions on skills and experience - this was tough as the job descriptions provided were so vague.   Answer Question

    Acquisitions Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    One of the worst interviewing experiences of my life. I applied through website initially and forgot all about it as it was so long before I received a response. I then received an email from a PA inviting me to interview. Naturally, I was delighted as this really was a dream job for me. I attended the interview which was fairly informal, relaxed and friendly. It could not have gone better. I was really pleased and excited and was told I would hear back regarding a second interview in approx. a week.

    This is where NBCUni really started to let themselves down. I heard nothing for weeks. I chased the manager who interviewed me, I chased HR and nothing... no one responded to my multiple emails and voicemails. I had all but given up hope when I received an email from HR asking if I could attend an interview the following morning. This was near impossible with notice given as I had a number of important meetings that I could not reschedule at such short notice. I quickly explained this to the HR manager and supplied a number of other options.... Again I heard nothing. I called him over and over and over again to discuss but he never called me back or responded to my email.

    He finally, sent me an email the following morning (after my allotted interview time) to imply there would be no further interview slots available. I felt very let down as if he had got back to me or I had managed to speak with him prior to this I would have done whatever it took to make the interview... even if that meant damaging my relationship with my current employer. He said he would get back to me and keep me updated with any progress. Which, of course, he hasn't done. I can only assume the position has been filled and I have missed out on a once in a lifetime opportunity thanks to the incompetence of the HR team.
