    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

    Interview

    five questions that had to be answered through the computer. Was extremely awkward and weird. Questions through you off quite a bit. There was also a timed writing test. All past things i have read never said this, so i was quite surprised.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Discovery Communications in March 2017.

    Interview

    About one week after submitting an application, I received an email to complete a self-recorded video interview by the weekend. You could practice beforehand, but there were 4 video questions (30 seconds to prepare your answer, 1 minute to answer) and you could redo it once if you preferred. The last question was a timed (10 minutes) short answer asking how you would sell a prospective student on your school while giving them a tour.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Discovery Communications (Evanston, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted via video recording, instead of video conference or phone call. It's quite obvious that they made every effort to make interviewees more comfortable with the process, and gave interviewees time to practice / rehearse before they start to record themselves. However, getting an interview without actual, human interaction was still very disorienting.
