    Director of Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BBC Worldwide (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    HR rep emailed me 10 days after I submitted my resume online and followed up with contact via email. We set up a call for two days later. The call went extremely well -- I was uniquely qualified for the new venture and she was excited by and impressed with my experience. She said that she'd call the following week to set up another interview. After a week went by, I followed up and asked if I was still under consideration. I received no answer to this email, nor my thank you. Two weeks later, I followed up again as the holidays were coming -- again, no response. Three weeks later, I checked in again to see if the project was going forward and if they were still looking for a Director of Marketing. Yet again, no response. When I saw her post a new listing on LinkedIn, I contacted her directly and she finally responded to say that that they chose an internal candidate.

    I've long been a fan of BBC's content and programming and was thrilled at the possibility of joining the company. However, the lack of professionalism and respect shown by the BBC Worldwide HR rep was so disappointing that I would be weary of spending any time or energy pursuing any opportunity there again.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BBC Worldwide (New York, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    It happened rather quickly for me. I was called in for an interview a week after applying for the internship position. They just wanted to get a bit more about who you are as a person when faced with problems. I interviewed with two people at the same time. It was a pretty relaxed atmosphere. Everyone is so nice. I was also impressed with the office decor - so modern! I got the internship and there are no regrets thus far. You should definitely go for it. It's not often you can say that a major corporation has a pretty relaxed atmosphere and the employees treat you like family...even though they are located in the middle of the coldest city (literally) on Earth. I was sad when my internship was over. I wasn't able to land a job right after because they weren't hiring right away due to the merge with AMC Networks. Good luck!

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BBC Worldwide in May 2014.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with a production manager first to get an overview of the position and see if I was interested. We set up a Skype interview next with her and another production manager. Of one of the managers was late to the Skype interview, so I had to make conversation with the other interviewer because he didn't want to start asking the formal interview questions before his co-worker arrived.

    Interview Questions

    • It was all just basic interview questions, like "Why BBC?" and "What makes you a good fit for the position?" I was also asked to talk about several experiences from my resume.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BBC Worldwide (New York, NY) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I had two interviews during the interviewing process. The time frame lasted around 2 months which I thought was way too long for this type of position. There were some behavior questions but they mostly just wanted to get to know you to see if you would be a good fit for their team.
