    Production Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, CT
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ESPN (Bristol, CT) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Received a call from HR. It went better than the actually interview in my opinion. Got an interview call the next day and spoke with three different people on the phone. Wish it was an in person interview probably would've gotten the job. Took about 3 almost 4 wks for me to hear back, even though they ended with we'll be in touch next week. So don't believe that, it takes some time.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Digital Media Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bristol, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ESPN (Bristol, CT) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Screening call, Phone Interview, and then on campus. It all took about two weeks. The on-site interview was challenging because I didn't really know what was happening. Six of us interviewed in the morning, rotating through the different departments, and six of us in the afternoon, with lunch as an overlapping point. Most of the interviews were pretty straightforward, but a couple were more challenging. I spent a lot of time preparing for this interview and it paid off.

    Phone Interview-They ask why you want to work as a Digital Media Editor at ESPN FC, why I am interested in soccer, what experience you have that may apply to this position, etc. And then they ask a few questions about the world of soccer to make sure you are knowledgeable about the sport and what is going on in the sport of soccer globally.

    In Person-If they like you enough from your phone interview they will have you come into the Bristol Campus for an in person interview where they will see if they like your personality and ask you further questions about why you want to work there, your work history and your knowledge of soccer. A lot fo the questions are the same as the phone interview.

    I applied online. I interviewed at ESPN in June 2015.

    Interview

    A simple phone screen. I never heard back. I even sent two emails and never got a reply. I understand many people apply for the position, but all I was looking for was a short response. Was the Position filled? or Are you still in the hiring process?

    Content Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ESPN (Bristol, CT) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Rented a car and drove from Manhattan twice during the interview process to meet with executives for the position. One point that stuck out to me was that I traveled myself for the interview when I've spoken with friends who took positions at the company and were flown in for the interview and housed at the hotel across the street from campus during the interview process. Nevertheless, the interviews were straight forward.

    I did not receive an offer; in fact, my resume and a high recommendation was sent through channels and I was invited to interview for a different position with the company. Again, I traveled myself up to Bristol and this interview took place for a little over four hours. After what seemed like an extensive interview, I did not receive a response one way or the other about the position and have not received word until this day.
