    I have been working at Viacom as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I've been interning at Viacom for almost a year. I've been interning at the Domestic Tax Compliance Department. I love the environment here. Everyone is very nice and everyone is always willing to answer any questions you might have. I've learned a lot here with the help of all the managers and co-workers.

    Cons

    Training was a problem because I did not exactly get a full-on training experience. Most of the time I had to self learn through my mistakes. I mean, the managers will teach you how to work on certain projects, but most of the time its really brief. Also, the pay of an intern is very low but I mean, previously, you'd intern here unpaid with credit.

    Creative Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Viacom in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with a contracted on site recruiter, apparently a routine process at Viacom. The recruiter seemed entirely uninformed about the position and very blase about the whole process. Her energy and enthusiasm level were very low, and her expectations for the first interview were odd: without providing specific details about the position in advance, she expected me to provide "big ideas" on the spot within the first few minutes of the meeting. I did my best to brainstorm on the spot, but the conversation never really led to details position or my experience. I felt like it was a no-win situation, and a huge waste of my time.
