    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Discovery Communications.

    I had to do an online interviewing process. It was kind of difficult to watch yourself on the screen recording your answers. Had about two minutes to answer each one but time went quickly.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Discovery Communications.

    Online interview. They give you a written question and you send in video recordings of your answers. Slightly awkward and I had technical difficulties, making the interview process not work for me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Discovery Communications (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online (no referral), and a week later got an automated message asking me to take a video interview within 48 hours. I had to download the HireVue app and find a quiet, well-lit space to film in. The interview was 8 questions: two were typed "essays" (How did you find out about this job? Is temp to perm position OK?) and six were video responses. You got 30 seconds to read and prep for each video response and 1-3 minutes to record (based on the question). I got one try for each.

    Computer recording where you'd have 30 seconds to read and think and 1 minute to answer. There were only 3 Questions. Then, a phone call with supervisor where they asked questions specific to the internship category.

    Interview

    Awkward video interview where you record yourself answering questions. You have two minutes of prep time before each question and you get two tries, but you can't choose which try to submit. So if your second try is worse than the first one, you're out of luck. They e-mailed me Tuesday evening and wanted it done by the following Friday and it was during my Spring Break. Luckily I had my laptop with me and I was only in Orlando and not on a cruise, but I didn't have any business attire with me and had to record it in a hotel room. Not a big deal, but I wish I had more time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Discovery Communications in May 2017.

    Interview

    Was invited to do a first round interview over the phone and it went well. I was then invited to do an evaluation to test my excel skills. It has been two months and I have not heard back from the company. Regardless of outcome, they were very unprofessional and poor at communicating.

    Interview

    Awkward video interview, which is pretty lazy, and then had to hunt them down to check status.
    Really hurts their brand to see this approach. Lost a customer in me, in case that matters
