    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Viacom (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I met the HR team at a campus career fair. It was a quick 1x1 interview at the fair going over my experience and skills. The phone screening was very simple where I walked through my experience and skills again. HR was very open and asked what area/field I would like to explore and what I wanted to do for a career. They worked with me on what I wanted to do. The face to face interview with the department was also very straight forward and laid back with common interview questions and walking through past experiences.

    Interview

    Pretty Easy and laid back. I just met with the hiring manager and not the HR. I went through the basic introduction and overview of the portfolio. They explain what to expect out of the position.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Viacom.

    Interview

    I interviewed for an accounting intern position with the Entertainment Group. The interview process was very basic. First, HR contacted me by phone and did a quick interview. They asked me which division of Viacom I'd like to work for and connected me with that division for the next step. Then, I went into the office and met with three different people of that division, one on one. The in-person interview was also very easy. They asked typical non-industry questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Viacom (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Took about two weeks to get back to me after application. Interview was scheduled immediately, and employers were prompt and reliable on letting you know when you got the job. However--different departments interview differently. Had one that was much more formal, and another where they asked me NO questions and it was extremely awkward.

    Interview

    First applied online, then heard from the College Relations person after two months. Did a simple phone interview, walked through my resume and gave me two recommended departments. Then interviewed with the department, the whole process felt like a conversation, pretty chill. Then heard back from the college relations person two days later that I got the offer.

    Interview

    The interview process was average. Only interviewed with 2 people. Neither were very challenging. Did have to complete a short quiz in media math. Important to know the basics, even at an entry level. Long wait to start once I accepted the position.

    Interview

    Not very difficult. Just went over my resume and discussed the duties related to the position that I was applying for. First interviewed over the phone with someone from HR then with two people from the department I applied for. They asked my why I would want to intern with them and what I know about the company. The interviewers were very nice and made the interview comfortable even though I was nervous.
