    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Universal Music Group.

    Interview

    I was hired as a former intern, I did an internship in the Marketing Department the year I applied for this job. I was still doing this internship when I applied for this job. I evolved into this position so the hiring and interview processes were mostly through networking and employees referees. People advocated for me and wanted me to work with them so they did their best to push me on the top of the pile in the hiring process.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Universal Music Group in January 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward. Had a quick call with HR, mainly going over resume, availability in terms of salary, why music/UMG and salary expectations. I spoke with 2 members of the Corp Dev team shortly after (the group is very small). Questions related to background, specific questions to some of the items on my resume, why music/UMG, and what trends are you noticing in the music industry

    The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Universal Music Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    3 month process with very poor communication. HR was not involved in the process. Ended the process with no explanation in a typo-filled email after multiple rounds of interviews.

    No one could seem to agree on what the role; each interviewer seemed to believe the job was something different. The final interviewer could not answer questions around how the role would contribute to the company or how success would be defined for the role.

    Basically, a cluster....
