    /Entry Level Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Troy, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Turner Broadcasting in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through a University career connector, went in for an interview, the whole thing was unprofessional. The manager told me I reminded him of his daughter, which was weird. He casually mentioned following up with me the next week if I was selected, I mentioned I would be in Europe, and suddenly he was very interested. He kept calling me the whole trip, seeming more interested in the fact that I was in Europe than anything, but still making me believe I was in consideration. Then, after scheduling all those interview during my trip, with time difference, I return home and email the secretary and they said there no longer is an internship, they decided not to do one after all. I interviewed again with the company the summer after my college graduation and whoever it was they had scheduling interviews was so outright hostile to me that I decided not to even bother. I told her I was available all but one day the following week to interview and she got very mad at me, asking why I couldn't do that one day, saying if I was "really dedicated" I would do ANY day, never mind the fact that my mother was in the hospital. Good riddance.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 months - interviewed at Turner Broadcasting.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this position with help from an employee, was contacted by the recruiter and had a small phone interview to discuss my skills and experience. I was then contacted by them again and scheduled an in-person interview which I accepted. After the initial interview, I was notified that there was a hiring freeze. This was the second time this had happened to me with this company! Anyway, about five months later, I was contacted again for my second interview with a panel of three people. About a week later, I was offered the position.

    Interview Questions
