    Late Show Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CBS (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online for the summer internship program. I heard back a few weeks later to schedule a short phone interview. The person I talked to was almost 10 minutes late in calling, and since I was at work and had made that known prior, it was very unprofessional on their part. The interviewer didn't really ask any questions that I found pertinent, and focused more on my interests/hobbies. At one point they asked what sports team is my favorite, it really came out of nowhere. I had the feeling they didn't have much experience in interviewing.

    I heard back a few days ago and found out that I was not accepted into the internship. I feel that's largely because I wasn't given the opportunity to describe my background and work ethic.

    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.

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CBS (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter. Had initial phone screening - mostly basic questions, and resume walk through. After around three weeks was invited to visit the company. This was for a mid level sales and business development position. Went for interview at the office, that took around 4 hours, had five interviews. I didn't take the offer because I wanted to join a smaller company, other than that i thought it is a good employer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at CBS (Burbank, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Long wait and a short interview who looked like they didn't know what they were looking at over my portfolio. How do you get to this point and not have looked at it beforehand or know what it is you're looking for. A complete waste of my time and resources.
