    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Mediacorp (Singapore (Singapore)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Straightforward interview process: HR processes your application and informs you within 1-2 weeks of your interview time. First round was with an interview session with the head of your team and the HR officer. The interviewers asked many questions about your views on Singapore politics, to get a sense of your political inclinations, and your ability to defend your views/make an argument. Heard that there will be a panel discussion next with a group, but I didnt make the cut.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Was only asked to introduce myself and give details about the things I did in school. Then was told to write a short commentary about recent entertainment news, and return the commentary back to the interviewers by the next working day. I think this was to check if I was up-to-date with entertainment news.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mediacorp.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted between hiring manager and HR.
    Interview for Marketing Manager, but turns out that job is changed in the middle of interview. The hiring manager confirms her interest in me right away on the spot, even before HR does the background check and questioning.
    The offer letter only came 3 weeks later from HR.
    HR process is very slow.
    Please be careful on the job advertisement and asked before going for interview. In my case, the ad was not the same as the role being offered!
    Restructuring is an ongoing process.
    Do avoid this company if you can!
