Difficult Interview

Application

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

Interview

I applied on the company's website and got an email invitation for a video interview about a week later. There are 6 questions in total, one written and five video. Apparently the video interview is step 1 of the process and I am still waiting to hear back if I got through to step 2.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I basically had a total of four interviews. During the second interview the interviewing team was 30mins late. Their explanation was I thought you were supposed to start at this time, no one told us you were here. I was asked to submit 3 references after interviewing with the President of the division, and I was also asked when could I start. The HR reps called all references I provided. I was told by HR they provided great feedback and again asked when could I start. Then they disappeared and stopped answering inquiries in regards to the position. Extremely disappointing, unprofessional and frustrating!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview

    Emails, calls and then in person. Through word-of-mouth I found out about the opening, applied, spoke to HR and interviewed in person. Once my boss spoke to my temporary boss, the deal was sealed and I was offered the job.

    Negative Experience

    Application

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

    Interview

    I was contacted by an HR representative in what seemed to be a generic email sent out to all candidates. It was not addressed to me personally. I was asked to complete a recorded webcam interview and I was given a deadline to complete the interview, which was 3 days after I received the email. The link to the interview program was provided in the email. The plus side to this is that I could complete the interview on my own time and it was an easy application to use. The negative side is not having a person to actually communicate with. I had to answer 8 questions, 30 seconds to prepare my answer for each question, 120 seconds to record each response. They do give you time before the recorded interview to practice. You are unable to go back and edit your responses on the final recorded interview.
    I followed up a few days after I submitted the interview expressing my interest and inquired about the status of my application. No word back. I checked the status of the job req to see that the position had been closed. Highly impersonal interviewing experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were generic, typical interview questions for my position like "How do you deal with senior level people and people across the board, as well as difficult people in the work place?" or "What makes you stand out or different than other Executive Assistants?" Questions weren't hard. What might have been challenging for me personally is not having someone else to meet and interact with and even ask my own questions about the role and the company.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    It was extremely quick for me as I was already a head-runner and someone selected for the position. But for most, it's lengthy and grueling.

    Easy. Went over compensation. They liked the amount of time I was willing/wanting to commit to working at this position. Done.
