    Interviewer was very friendly and honest about the position. Also met members of his team in order to ask them questions about their positions and the group as a whole. This also showed if a potential candidate will fit in with the group. Smart move.

    News Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBC.

    Interview

    There were 3 parts to the interview process. The first was an online application with short essay questions. It's really important to think these through and write meaningful answers as they will ask you about them later in the process. The second part was an interview in a city where you might be. Its important to prep for that interview. Most of the questions were technical and behavioral. Make sure you have a good story for what/why journalism and how you can benefit from/add to the program. Part three of the interview process is a group interview in New York. Pretty intimidating so you should be prepared. Practice your answers. Know the network and what type of stories you're most interested in covering. Know what is going on in the news and how the network is covering it. It's best to bring in a few examples. You're competing for about 10 spots and there are about 25 that are flown in for the interview. It's hard to be too prepared.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at NBC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interview process was very discombobulated. Seems like they had no idea what they were doing. Also, 5 rounds for a part time role. Inefficient and an internal mess at scheduling.

    Telemundo Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBC in March 2016.

    Interview

    Recorded 4 behavioral questions and 2 specific questions about the internship/company. The process was very streamlined - I never specifically heard from a recruiter, was just told by email I made it to the second round. The interviewed process was as follows: the question would be displayed for 30 seconds and after my camera would automatically record for 2 minutes (I could take breaks as long as I wanted in between questions).
