    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CBS.

    Phone interview process. Spoke with a recruiter for CBS over the phone. Asked very difficult questions. Didn't seem to care that I am already a freelancer for the company and that has worked there for nearly a year.

    Associate Producer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at CBS (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call from HR about a week later to talk about the position and set up an interview. I interviewed with the same person that week and from there they asked if I had time to sit with two of the department's producers. After interviewing with them, they asked if I had time to sit with the SVP. The process on a whole was pretty lax, conversational and not too rigid and confrontational like most interviews can be. Just be sure to know little intricacies of your resume and YOUR involvement. They are not fans of the word "we."

    Met with HR then head of the department. Interview questions were very generic. Was asked why do you want to work for the company? What's your strong and weakness? Through out the conversation, I did emphasize my passion in Media and what I know of current media/entertainment trend.

    Interview

    The interview was very cordial with basic behavioral questions. All in all it lasted 30 mins with not much engagement or follow up after each question. CBS seems like they would be a good company to gain experience from.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CBS (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    This was a group interview with about 10 other candidates. We all sat around a table and answered questions based on our resumes and experience. Try to find ways to stand out since there will be multiple people interviewing along with you. We were also asked about current shows airing on CBS so be sure to know their programs.

    I applied online. I interviewed at CBS in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was conducted through the hire vue app. A first but it was a simple process that allows you two takes at answering the question. After the app interview I was called for a phone interview which was refreshing to actually speak with someone during the interviewing process
