    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    Interviews consisted of background knowledge in media and production, as well as questions regarding current events. This is especially true if attempting to look in the NBC news department, so be prepared to discuss current political, economic or entertainment events / stories to earn bonus points.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview

    Unfortunately, the process was; in my opinion, a waste of time. I was contacted by the recruiter through email. The email correspondance was unprofessional and I had to confirm that she was a real NBC recruiter or a scam (grammer, spelling, etc.). I received a call from the recruiter an hour and a half earlier then our scheduled phone interview.

    The interviewer seemed to not even listen to my responses to the questions she was asking me. She seemed very uninterested and was just trying to meet the minimum of interviews she had to do. She repeated a question that I already answered twice previously.

    Was unable to correctly answer the questions I had for her. I was also shocked on the salary she provided me, lack of relocation support, and zero rotational opportunities within the finance organization. Made me very disinterested towards the company right away.

    Page Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    It's definitely a long process, but it prepares you so well for any future interviews. I applied November 1, heard back that I got a video interview in mid-December. The video interview shows you a question for 15 seconds and then you have one minute to respond. Personally I thought it was the hardest part of the interview process.

    Just after Christmas, I got an email that I had been selected for the Panel interview. That stage consists of a panel interview, an individual interview, a speech/presentation, and a group activity. It's definitely nerve-wracking, but I found it really fun. 2 days before your interview they send you the topic that you'll give a 2-minute presentation on; I loved that aspect, but I'm one of those weird people who love public speaking.

    I heard back that I had been selected the Monday after their last round of interviews in the late afternoon.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal in December 2017.

    Interview

    One brief phone interview with the manager and email communication with the recruiter. I felt like I interviewed them more than they interviewed me. Declined Job offer due to insanely low pay rate ($12). They seemed nice enough and gave a good description of the role and expectations.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Phone screen, then on-site interview about previous experience. Mostly behavioral questions. They asked me about my skillset related to the job, so I showed them an example of my work. Interviewers were who I would end up working with throughout the duration of the summer. Overall good experience.
