    Associate Director, Consumer Insights for ESPN+ Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ESPN (New York, NY) in September 2019.

    Interview

    A month went by between application submission and initial contact. The initial phone screen was pleasant, most of it confirmed what I already knew through due diligence. The budgeted salary was $105k. Conversation went well, recruiter scheduled a call with the hiring manager during my initial call. Call with HM happened a week later, didn't go as well. Called me 15 minutes late and there was little flow to the conversation and he didn't seem into the call. The answers to my follow-up questions seemed slapdash and time-filling rather than knowledgable. By this time, the job has been posted on Glassdoor for five months (six months now at the time of this writing), so the HM has likely gone through dozens of interviews by now. I failed to notice how long this position had been on Glassdoor prior to initial call...taking six months to find someone with research and sports knowledge in NEW YORK CITY is a huge red flag. After sending three follow-up emails (they replied to one), they have since ghosted me.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview. The person conducting the interview did a great job of making me feel comfortable. He asked appropriate questions and was very informative about the role I would have as an intern and the office environment as well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ESPN in February 2019.

    Interview

    Had 2 interviews before not moving on to the third round. As some one who is extremely passionate and knows a lot about sports, I thought this was the perfect opening. I did well in the first interview and ok in the second. The second interview didn't seem to attempt to understand if I could do the job. I know I had the necessary skills and expertise, but they seemed too hung up on my past work experience for an ENTRY Level job.

    Interview

    Wow. Long drawn out process. Multiple phone calls, for different roles that had evolved over the time frame. Eventually they flew me out to Bristol for an in person meeting with an EP and staff. I appreciate that they paid for that pricey trip ( which wasn't planned out well to be honest...cancellations involved) . The interview wasn't anything crazily difficult, mostly about background experience, but the toughest question might have been how could you fit in with our specific team culturally wise. I do not appreciate the lack of response after the meeting, basically I was ghosted after sending my thank you letter. No updates, no responses.
