    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Scripps Networks Interactive.

    Interview

    The communication throughout the process was consistent and thorough. They called when they said they would and kept me well informed on the progress. Each meeting was very casual and relaxed and was more conversational than just generic interview questions. After the offer came in, I was given time to think it over, then 2 weeks until my start date (after accepting the position).

    Interview

    It took between two to three years after sending my first of three resumes until I landed an interview. First were a couple of telephone interviews; second a video conference interview which required me going to a local Kinko's; then an in person interview in Knoxville. An offer was extended about a month after the in person interview and was contingent on a negative urinalysis.

I had to repeat some information over again since the director was not in the room the first time. The internship paid $10 an hour.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Scripps Networks Interactive (New York, NY) in August 2013.

    Interview

    The Food Network offices in New York has an extremely enjoyable work culture. When I first interviewed for an intern position I was brought into the office promptly. I first met with the person who would be my direct supervisor. Afterwards, she brought in another member of her department before bringing in the director who oversees them. For the most part, the interview went well however, it got to be a little monotonous since you were repeating things over and over as someone else was brought in. So, while my main interviewer was in there she had to listen to me repeat the same information three times. I was hired later that week via email from HR.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any questions that struck me as difficult or unexpected. It was a pretty standard interview and they just wanted to know the interviewee's adaptability to new circumstances.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Started with an initial phone screening of basic questions, then an in-person interview with HR. From there, met the hiring manager then the VP of the group. HR questions were on work experience, but the following interviews were legit. Questions made you think about what you were saying.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you define marketing? Not too difficult, but wasn't something I had "prepared" to think about.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Scripps Networks Interactive (Knoxville, TN) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Started out with a phone interview one on one with the hiring manager. General technical questions, pretty straight forward. The tone of the interview was more about personal fit for the org than technical skills. Second phone interview was with a group, similar setting, but more technical. Everything was quite good. Went for the in person interview, had a couple of different panel interviews, both very casual, somewhat technical, but nothing overwhelming for a seasoned UNIX administrator.

    The second panel interview consisted of sitting down at a terminal with some abstract situations, which I felt generally were not very representative of real life scenarios. The whole interview process was quite amiable, and honestly I thought I killed it, but ended up not getting the positions due to unknown reasons. Never got any solid feedback on why other than they 'needed someone who could hit the ground running on a high profile project' so it must have been something fairly specific that they were hunting, as all the qualifications on the listing I met & demonstrated.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions revolved around generalities. There were no specific questions that stand out to me, and most of them were about fairly basic UNIX admin.   Answer Question
