    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ESPN (Bristol, CT) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Was set up with a recruiter put through a recruiter screening and then told I was going to have a call with senior software engineer to talk about my projects. When I got the phone call it actually was a technical interview which I wasn't expecting and felt unprepared for. If I had known it wasn't going to just be talking about my work I would have studied for the interview but it seems like they try to throw you off on purpose

    Two phone screenings and a face to face interview. They were very positive and upbeat about their department. If you match their excitement you should be okay. They are looking for what kind of equipment and programs you know how to use for the most part.

    Content Associate Program Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ESPN in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through the Disney careers website and received an automated email about three weeks after telling me to sign up for a time slot to interview with a recruiter. The phone call started over an hour late and lasted half an hour longer than expected (not that I was terribly upset about it) and went mostly well. The recruiter wanted to be friendly and take the stress off, but I felt that there definitely were "wrong answers" and there were things I could say to hurt my chances. They explained the benefits package and next steps during the interview even though I was not guaranteed one. I didn't feel that I was going to get a second interview, but I never received a response to my thank you email and ultimately got a rejection notice many months after the initial interview. Mentioned that the second interview would have been in person about two weeks from the day of the first and they were looking to fill the position approximately one month from the interview. It was a mostly positive experience, but I definitely feel that they didn't do a good job of hiding the obviousness of the number of candidates they had.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ESPN (Bristol, CT) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First, I received an email for a phone interview one week after I sent the application. After the phone interview, they scheduled an in-person interview at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, CT. Once I got there, they took me in a shuttle to the building where I was going to be interviewed.
    I was interviewed by two people. They asked about my experience, my skills with softwares, my sports preferences. Also, they asked if I have watched any of their channels and what I like about the company. Both of them were very polite and friendly and made it look like a regular conversation. After the interview, they took me to a little tour in the creative department where I sat with one of the workers and she showed me the softwares and projects she was working on.
