    Account Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at ESPN.

    Interview

    Thourough interview process. Met with numersous people the first day and two more at the second session. Managers asked good questions that make you think outside the box as opposed to just listing your skills and experiences.

    Art Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Interview

    Difficult if you're only going through the computer. Make sure you get a name somehow and try to contact them directly. You still have to go through the computer but the face to name connection helps.

    Interview Questions

    • "Are you a sports fan?" when you're not.   1 Answer

    Interview

    The one-hour timed test was a crunch but enjoyable. The phone interview which followed was very focused on one-sport, in my case baseball. Not being a baseball enthusiast, I found this difficult

    Interview

    Applied through company website, received an email the following morning to set up a phone interview. When the recruiter called, it was not the same person I had been corresponding with via email and she never mentioned her name..so I had no way of sending her a thank you email following the phone interview.

    Software Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    I did not get to the interview process. The recruiter insisted that I would have to reveal my salary history prior to moving forward in the process. My personal policy is never to do this, and almost all recruiters eventually respect this. From this recruiter, I got this load of bull:

    "...I discussed our conversation with my superiors. Unfortunately in order to proceed I would at least need your salary history. The rationale is that we need to be sure we are placing people who fit appropriately with the how the other members of the team are compensated, that we will be able to give appropriate raises and that we will be able to retain talent for an extended period. From a recruitment perspective we are generally trying to push the needle up for salaries so we can get the best talent in the door."

    Statistics Analyst Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ESPN.

    Interview

    You have to take a sports assessment test before you're called for an interview. If you get an interview, they just asked me a lot about my resume and work experience and then they went on to ask me current event questions and what kind of graphic I would make.

    I interviewed at ESPN (Bristol, CT) in May 2011.

    Negotiation

    Pretty straight forward. I was asked about my salary history and I was given an offer. I counter offered and they accepted.

    Marketing Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at ESPN (Chicago, IL) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Unfortunately it wasn't a great experience. Hiring manager was over 30 minutes late to our phone interview and indicated he was in the car heading home in traffic. He seemed unprepared and had very little to ask. After being cut short because he had arrived at home, he said we had a good conversation and would be contacting me the next day to schedule a second interview with him and another member of his team. Never heard from the guy again.
