    I interviewed for the NCAA.com Digital Media internship program after graduation. The process was initially quick, and I received a phone screen and then another call to come in for an interview. After the interview, I was told it would take a couple weeks to hear back, but I went about a month before I heard anything. Finally, I was notified via email that I did not receive an offer.

    /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 online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Turner Broadcasting.

    Interview Details

    Everyone that I spoke to was really nice and loved their jobs and working for Turner in general. While I had a positive experience with everybody I spoke to, it was almost a 3 month long process of getting hired from my first interview to the job offer.

    Dsr Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Turner Broadcasting in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Once passing the media math exam I was asked to come in for an interview with CNN for an available DSR position. I met with 2 younger aged executives - one male one female. They seemed very ill prepared for the interview. They asked me to tell them a bit about myself and then asked if I had any questions for them. In my questions for them, I flat out asked if they wanted to know anything else about me and they said no. It didn't seem like they had previously viewed my resume before meeting, and it was very early in the morning and they seemed very tired and overall uninterested. After the interview, I was escorted out by the male interviewer. He was heading to a different floor while I was heading to the lobby. When the door opened, he walked right out without acknowledging me or saying goodbye as I was preparing for another handshake and thank you. It was very awkward.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Turner Broadcasting in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. For a phone call from a recruiter at Turner after about a month. She asked a few basic questions regarding my experience and emailed me back with a request for phone interview with the manager. The phone interview went well, recruiter called back in 2 days requesting for an in-person interview with a 6-person group. The interview panel was great, they were very respectful and asked questions relevant to the position and my experience. They did not ask me syntax and coding questions like I was a rookie. After meeting with the team, I also met with the hiring manager (that I had the phone interview with) and the director, all of which went pretty well. Overall, I felt very good about all the interviews.
    I was hoping to hear back from them with a status/feedback. I called the recruiter after 5 business days and for a feedback she said that the team very much enjoyed meeting with me but that she did not have any other update at that point. After that I have not heard back from the recruiter, its been more than 3 weeks now. I am not entirely sure what to make of this especially after a good interview. I am not expecting a call after all these days, but I wish they were professional enough to provide me some kind of a feedback after 4 rounds of interview.

    Business Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Turner Broadcasting in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Several phone interviews and in-person interview. During the in-person interview I was asked the same questions that I had answered over the phone. Hiring manager and director showed up in jeans and hiring manager had on a sweatshirt -- so very unprofessional. Couldn't wait to leave the interview and didn't want to work there -- a waste of gas and parking fees.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Turner Broadcasting.

    Interview Details

    Very short phone interview. Recruiter was late calling. Usual questions and felt really good about my answers. Said that we would "be in touch". Never called. I attempted to call the recruiter and left a message to please call back regarding where they were in the hiring process. Still did not get a call back. Only realized I did not get the position because I saw that the online position listing was gone. Very unprofessional.
