    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HBO in June 2017.

    Very relaxed interview. The job itself is pretty unorganized and difficult to stay on top of due to lack of enforcement from HBO staff. The interview was about a 30 minute phone call that was very conversational.
