Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ESPN in June 2016.

Interview

Applied online, the next day got an email to complete a Sports Knowledge test. Contact a week later for an HR phone screening. Two weeks later I was contacted to set up a phone interview with someone from the department I would be working in. Heard back three weeks after the phone interview that I didn't get the position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ESPN (New York, NY).

    Interview

    phone interview with human resources where we talked about my basic information, then in person interview with my future supervisor in the office. It was pretty average, they just wanted to see your background and get a feel about how interested you were in getting into the industry. The generic answers like "I love sports" didn't really cut it, so you have to think about why sports are so important to you and who you are.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ESPN (Bristol, CT) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through Disney's website. About 2 or 3 days later I moved from "In Submission" to "In Progress' and the next day received a phone call asking if I'd like to set up a phone interview with them. I said yes. Next week we had the phone interview. It consisted of me and 3 men on the other end (at ESPN). It only lasted about 15 minutes. About 2 weeks later I received a phone call saying thanks for applying but the position had already been filled.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ESPN in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely basic and nothing out of the ordinary. The questions were very general addressing strengths and weaknesses, etc. Just know about the media industry as a whole and you should be fine.

    Interview

    Really long process. The interviews are easy just listen to what it is they are asking and answer the best way you can. Be yourself and you'll be fine. Know your stuff!! And definitely ask questions if you have any, they are always willing to answer any questions that you may have. Also, do your research on the company and know what the job description for which you have applied for says.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at ESPN.

    Interview

    Very personable interview. No ridiculous/difficult questions that you aren't ready to answer. Great experience during the interview process. Be yourself and they will be more likely to hire you. I didn't have the most impressive resume but I am comfortable during interviews and know how to carry on a conversation. Keep calm during the interview and you'll move on.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ESPN (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I wasapply for a summer internship but was studying abroad, which made an in-person interview impossible. They were accommodating in doing a phone interview. The questions were straight-forward and there was a friendly tone to the conversation, they are just trying to get to know you. I would say the best approach is to be loose and be yourself.
