    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Discovery Communications (Silver Spring, MD) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted an application on the company website and two days later received an email notifying me that I had been selected to do a video interview. During the interview there was a round of practice questions where you can practice for as many times as possible. However, interview questions were not the same ones. Later, for the round of interview questions, there were five questions and most of them were predictable. Also, for every question you can answer it twice if needed.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Discovery Communications in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and about 2 weeks later I received an invitation to complete a virtual interview. The process consisted of recording myself answering 8 questions. A month later I was asked to come in for an in-person interview. I accepted immediately and was told they would set up a time and date shortly. I have yet to hear back after a few weeks, even after I sent follow-up emails. Very unprofessional for a company that is well regarded.

    Accounting Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Discovery Communications in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had to follow a link in an email to a virtual interview site called Hireview. Hireview gives you the opportunity to practice using standard interview questions before you start the actual interview. The interview that I took was 5 questions long. I was shown the prompt and given 3 minutes to prepare before the recording started. The answer had to be one minute long. You have 2 shots to answer the question, but the second attempt is immediately kept and sent. It wasn't too bad, but it felt kind of awkward and I was nervous so my voice shook a lot. If you get nervous easily I recommend keeping a water bottle nearby to use between questions.
