    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CBS TV Distribution (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and I heard back within two weeks to schedule an in-person interview with two employees. The interview was pretty chill, the employees were very nice and made the interview more of a conversation. They didn't focus much on behavioral questions, rather they seemed like they wanted to know more about who you are.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CBS TV Distribution (Boston, MA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was an unexpected phone call from an HR manager. They interviewed me on the spot, so make sure once you apply to this company, you do the research so you are prepared if they call you. It was not too long, and she only asked a few questions, so make sure you provide well formulated answers because you do not have too much time to make a good impression.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CBS TV Distribution.

    Interview

    I submitted an application via my college's online career center service. I was contacted by HR to schedule an interview. My interview consisted of a fairly simple Excel test taken on the computer and a 1:1 interview with a manager. Interview questions consisted of standard questions "What are your strengths," "Why pick you over other equally qualified candidates." It was easygoing and conversational in nature. I was contacted shortly by HR offering me the position. Co-workers were very friendly and driven.
