    Interview

    I applied online and got an email from a recruiter about a week and a half later. I got a link to answer a few questions by video (you have 30 seconds to read each questions and I had a minute to answer each). I just did the interview and don't know whether they'll choose to continue the recruiting process yet.

    UCP Current Programming Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online, was asked in for an interview. Interview with two guys, both seemed nice. They asked the standard interview questions, not a whole lot of chit chat. Pleasant interview and I thought it went well but didn't hear back for three weeks. I reached out to them and immediately got an unpersonalized email response that I was no longer being considered. If they knew they weren't going to hire me I wish they had told me sooner since I thought it went quite well.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview

    Video and in-person interview. The recruiters are really kind and make the process fluid and straightforward. The interviews themselves are very behavioral and are more enjoyable than most, as the interviewer was great at stemming conversation.

    Interview

    Really disappointing interview experience. From recruiter messages streaming past 9pm to organizational problems, I was surprised to see the lack of organization. My office interview was a nightmare and made me feel completely alienated. My interviews were scheduled on three different floors back to back and I had no one to escort me or let me into the security clearance doors on each floor. My first interviewer was 15 minutes late which messed up the rest of my schedule. I thought it was extremely strange I was walking (or in this case running) through 30 rock alone going from floor to floor. It left a very poor impression with me when I left unfortunately. Decided not to follow through with the process further after these experiences. This might have been a unique situation but it was enough to make me rethink the culture and environment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied in February on their Campus2Career Website and then in the middle of March received an email from a recruiter with an invitation for a video interview. The video interview was easier than I expected. You received 30 seconds to read a question and had around 1:15-2:30 minutes to respond. There were four video questions. There were nine written responses which were very easy, just asking about GPA, dates available to work, etc.
