Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2017.

Interview

I applied in May ad was notified in July of an interview process. After interviewing with their computerized video chat process (they ask you a question and you get 2 minutes to film a response). I was not contacted until September for a phone interview that lasted around 30 minutes with my potential boss. She set up an in person interview at the studio the next day that lasted about 10 minutes. At that stage, she still had to interview two other people. She notified me within a week that I had the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Studio City, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online in December 2016 and didn't receive an email until late February inquiring to submit a video interview within 48 hours or receiving the email. After submitting I received an email stating that they will contact me 3 weeks after the interview and I did not receive a response. Don't expect a response since they have thousands of applicants trying for the same position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Universal City, CA).

    Interview

    Online app, video interview with 4 questions and a minute per answer. Few weeks later was called in to interview with supervisors. I had applied for every position relating to marketing and got called in to interview for the department I was least interested in. Interview in person was one of the tougher ones I've experienced.

    Reasons for Declining

    Office in Universal City is very far from my school, hours are 9-6, very corporate atmosphere

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. When I got to the department the hiring manager straight up told me that this is entertainment and the best way (and usually only way) to get a job is if you know someone. Well, this speaks a lot about the industry and also NBC as a whole. He told me that pretty much everyone at the company either started as an intern or got a job through a referral.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very short online video interview where questions appear on the screen and you are given a short time to answer each one. This is not a skype call, but instead a one sided interview, and someone will most likely reach out to you after with further information. It is the preliminary interview for the position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Universal City, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my school for a spring internship. I heard back a few weeks later and was brought in for an interview. The interview was fairly typical although I interviewed with several (four) people from the department at the same time which made it a little more difficult. Questions were standard, nothing too surprising. A couple of weeks after the interview I was told via email that I received the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The first round of interviews is done electronically. A series of questions will appear on your computer screen and you have 2 minutes to respond to each one via webcam. No person is on the other side of this interview which makes for a really awkward experience. If you do well on this, you will be asked for an in-person or phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions depend on the department you are applying for (entertainment, news, parks and resorts). Know a of of background and what the company has been doing lately in that department. I worked for the news group and they asked me what my favorite recent segment was   Answer Question

    Interview

    The online interview is the worst. Questions pop up on a screen and you have 30 seconds to come up with an answer. It is very stressful and not personal at all. I think everybody must feel awkward doing them though, and the employers must know that.
