    Interview

    3 weeks after submitting application I received an email to do a video interview through HireVue. Questions weren't very difficult, but seeing yourself answer feels a little strange. It has been almost two months since that interview, and I am still waiting to hear back!

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online for a PM position at the end of November 2016, and about a week later an HR Recruiter got in touch with me to schedule a 30-minute phone interview. On the same day of the phone interview, I was contacted again to schedule an on-site interview with the SVP of the department, the team manager (who I already spoke with in the phone interview), another manager, and an Operational Director. Due to the holiday season, scheduling the on-site was delayed to the beginning of January 2017. In the second (and final) interview, I was basically led into a conference room and people came in one at a time, introduced themselves, and I had four separate 30-minute conversations getting to know the team members personally, discussing the position and how it impacts each team member, and how I could fit into the role.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Discovery Communications (Silver Spring, MD) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the Director of Partner Success and had a 30 minute phone interview, then went on site for a one hour interview discussing 4 cases, then had two phone interviews, one with 2 team members and 1 with the VP of Partner Success. Lastly I was invited to go on site once again for a one hour interview with the same VP and a Senior Director. 5 total interviews with 7 different people. Overall everyone was nice and professional. The process lasted about 3 weeks and after that last interview I didn't hear from them for one week. I reached out and they responded that I was not being offered the position. During the interview process I am confident that I had the skills they were looking for, however they kept referring to fit. Fit is very ambiguous and leaves room for a lot of bias??? The position has been open for months, so I didn't end up with a good impression of the company or the team when I went through 5 interviews and was not hired for a position that has been open for 3 months. The questions were also all over the place. Not structured, kind of winging it. Not thought out questions, just coming up with them on the fly.
