I interviewed at ESPN

Interview

No initial recruiter/HR interview - the first was via Skype with the "hiring committee" (with 3-4 people) you'd be working with/for. Interviewers were very friendly and asked professional and thoughtful questions.

Interview Questions

Senior Associate

In a league with a 2-week championship for weeks 17 and 18 (idk why we included week 18 but that’s the way it is). He had 2 players last night and I had one. He wants to use ESPN projections to finish out the game. I think everyone should end as what they ended if the game is not replayed or 0 if it doesn’t count as a game at all. I don’t think it will be replayed. Personally I think using projections is stupid but want to see if anyone else has any ideas.

Very exciting and fun interview process to go through. Went over what I was going to be doing and how the event would go. Also how the pay and sequence of events would be.

I interviewed at ESPN

Interview

The process was a fairly basic one. There were two different stages to the interview process where I met with HR and then a full team of people. That would sum it up in about 30 words.

Interview

Straight forward, asking some sports questions and why you fit the role. They give you scenarios on what way would you cut a highlight base on game circumstances. Didn't go in person, process took almost one month.

Phone interview, virtual interview, in person interview then hired 3 weeks later. Everyone was super friendly and welcoming during the whole process. Flying out to ESPN and seeing the campus was really cool.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ESPN in Sep 2022

Interview

I applied within the Walt Disney Company portal after being sent this job by a recruiter. My interviewer also told me to reach out to the VP of her department and talk with her. Overall, great experience.

Interview Questions
  • Most of the questions with the recruiter were traditional interview style questions— how comfortable are you with word, excel, powerpoint, etc. The questions with the hiring manager were more industry based— tell me about trends you've noticed in media over the last ten years, how do you feel about Netflix cracking down on password sharing, what experience do you have with negotiating contracts, etc.

Apply, phone screening, one interview with a few team members, and then a job offer. It was a long process due to uncertainty with COVID, but well worth the wait

Very easy and great insight on what the job consists of. Be ready to talk about how previous experiences prepared you for the role. What skills do you pose that prepare you for the role? Also have a story on how you handled a work place conflict.
