    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Stamford, CT) in December 2015.

    Interview

    It was very easy, they send you emails and you are able to click the link and easily participate in the video interview process. When I had an issue with the technology aspect of it (my camera didn't connect with the website) they online help people were great as well and helped me to fix the problem.

    Associate Systems Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied back in February and didn't hear from the Recruiter until mid to end March. I had a initial phone interview with the recruiter describing the position. Then she schedule a phone interview with a peer 2 days later. The interview was very simple no technical questions. The interviewer just asked if I had experience with Java and Oracle Database experience, which I did. Overall, it seem as if the interviewer was burned out and the interview was dragging on. The interview consist of many behavior questions. It sounds as if the company went through some layoffs.

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and also cold emailed one of the recruiters as the company uses an ATS, in other words, a resume black hole. It was a smooth process after I sent the recruiter my resume. I was contacted about a week after sending it to schedule a phone screen. The phone screen went well until I learned about what I would be doing in detail, and the salary. I went in for an in-person and was made an offer, but declined because I received a higher one from one of their competitors and I'll be doing the same thing.

    Research Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online with a CV & Cover Letter. Was then invited to do a video interview (they give you about 5 questions with 30sec-1min to prepare your answer then 1-2mins to record your answer) and numerical test (quite difficult to do in the short time period they give, I was surprised that I had passed). Then there was an assessment centre which involved a brief written task, a group exercise and 5 quick fire interviews (10 mins per interview). The assessment centre is relaxed and it seemed they were looking for people with a passion for the industry and who they could get along with.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    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.
