    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Discovery Communications (Silver Spring, MD) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I have applied multiple times with Discovery. This, ultimately, was my dream job. I applied online for the position and the next day, I received an email saying that I was selected for an online interview and had three days to complete. I went through several rounds of practice interviews which really helped me in the process. However, I did not receive a response until two months later saying that I did not get the internship. I am highly disappointed that they did not select me, despite already having a degree in film and applying as a post-graduate student. In the email, the employer encouraged me to apply again for another internship with them which I will not do as they already burned that bridge. I know several other people from undergrad that applied for internships with Discovery and they did not get the internships as well. So I encourage others not to pursue even an internship with this company.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by one way video via Hire View. The instructions were unclear and because of that I did not do as best as I could. It was a series of questions and you would have 1 minute to prepare before it started recording. The questions were simple and gave me ample opportunity to show myself off. Overall, not horrible, but not a fan of video interviews
