Administrative Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Universal City, CA

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Universal City, CA).

Interview

Unusually fast - I suspect they had someone for the job already but that person decided to opt out at the last minute. I was actually interviewing for another position, but when I talked to HR, they asked if I was interested in scripted programming (which is my dream job!). The next day I interviewed with the Director (the interview went very well), then she had me do script coverage on a couple of scripts. After, I in the interviewed with a few of the assistants. I was offered the job the following week.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    They had the worst interview process. I was contacted only by email to set up a web interview. I was give a date the interview was due by and completed within the timeframe. After the interview I reached out to HR to inform that I had completed the interview. It was radio silence after that! I never heard anything. I would have appreciated feedback either way. It's very unprofessional to ask someone to interview and then ignore them afterwards

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Universal City, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Lazy recruiters using online video interview. Not Skype. A few questions on the screen and one minute to answer. No interaction with another human. Most people do horrible in front of a camera like this If you toss these people in the trash because of this you miss out on your best candidates.

    After that you will get a call from the recruiter. Next is phone interview with HR manager. In person interview with HR. Finally in person interview with hiring manager.

    Didn't feel like I meshed with the hiring manager. Turned down the offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in January 2013.

    Interview

    After my initial application, I was brought in for an interview with my potential supervisor and was asked all the basic interview questions. He seemed to just be making sure I was capable of doing the job and handling all tasks. That same day, I had an interview with a representative from HR. She was very sweet and answered all of my questions. She asked very predictable, but important standard pre-employment questions. I was also brought in a week later for a third interview with another potential supervisor. At this point, I was contacted to provide 3 professional references. About a week later, I was contacted with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They asked what I was hoping to make as a salary early on in the process. They basically told me what they were willing to pay with the offer. It wasn't really a negotiation, but it was a fair offer.
