    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at WGBH.

    Interview Details

    When being interviewed, my interviewer had her phone out on the desk, which is totally normal. I've seen it many times. What I hadn't seen, however, was someone who couldn't put it down. She was constantly typing away on it as I was answering her questions. Very off-putting. I'm surprised if she heard a fifth of what I was saying.

    After the interview, I sent a thank you email and received nothing back.

    Never heard if I got the internship or not.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at WGBH.

    Interview Details

    Generally friendly. Culture fit is very important. Be prepared to go through HR first, which will pepper you with the most generic interview questions there are. Even for internal employees. The talk with the hiring manager will be the most informative, and will be the time you can bring your genuine self out.

    Web Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at WGBH.

    Interview Details

    One of the recruiters I had been working with arranged an interview with WGBH's interactive department (web development) after a phone screening, in which I spoke with their hiring manager. Since the hiring manager was traveling, 2 developers of the interactive department sat down with me for the interview, and later a tour of their department, and a couple studios. It was clear to me that the people in the interactive department took pride in their work, and the style of work is for small teams of 2 or 3 developers and designers to work on a project for several months at a time. I received an offer from another company before I could continue further in the interview process with WGBH. Since they are a non-profit broadcasting company, it is reasonable to expect them to be a bit slower for planning further interviews or making an offer.
