    I applied online. I interviewed at NBC.

    Interview

    Art Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NBC (New York, NY) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewing was an extremely long process. I had to meet with many different layers of company from initially HR, then my would be immediate supervisor to potential key coworkers from various departments. I came back 3 times because unfortunately not everyone was able to meet with me on the same day. I worked in LI so trip to NYC was difficult because I had to leave my then current job early enough to get to the interview before everyone left for the day. At my 3rd interview HR finally did offer me the job.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me the usual standard questions but my future boss kept asking me how I would handle a situation creatively. The position was for an art director of an entertainment company and even though I had prior entertainment experience my current job at that time was in pharmaceuticals. Also i thought it was strang at the time but HR asked me if I would have a problem firing people?   1 Answer

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at NBC (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was a pre-recorded interview. Definitely, do your research because I was not prepared. They ask a lot of questions related to NBC history and what is happening right now in their company. Don't go into it thinking you will just be answering behavior questions. It was really tough.
