Difficult Interview
Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at NBCNEWS.com (United Kingdom)

Interview

The workplace seemed warm and friendly. The directions for the news exercise test were vague. The job description was also vague because they hadn't fully defined the role. The keyboard I used to take the test was quite clunky.

I applied online. I interviewed at NBCNEWS.com (New York, NY)

Interview

This was a 2-part interview process. For me I had to initially do a recorded Skype interview where I would be shown a question and then be prompted with 60 seconds to respond. There's a practice question beforehand, after that it starts recording after every question. Following that I got a phone call for the actual internship interview for NBC News Digital which was a pretty standard experience.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at NBCNEWS.com (United States)

Interview

It first involved an application process. Afterwards was the first round interview, which was quite straightforward. I had to work through journalistic questions and explain why I fit the role itself to the interviewer. The interview itself was laid back, but it demanded a strong grasp of knowledge on NBC News, journalism, and the program itself. It's important to have this information down pat before the interview. Market research can also be crucial to proving you have a solid background and are fit for the position.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NBCNEWS.com (United States) in Apr 2012

Interview

Very informal, I interviewed with an executive producer with whom I interned with. Busy newsroom with very little privacy, fast paced and somewhat intimidating. Great environment where long hours and little time off should be expected.

Interview Questions
  • Are you willing to travel with very little notice and remain on call 24-7?
