    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Studio City, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    East Coast Page Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Like everyone else says, the interview process was a heartbreaking one. I applied on a pipe dream, thinking there was no way I'd get through. But I ended up making it to the final round, flew to New York, waited around for two weeks and then ended up not getting it.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Thorough yet personal, many questions to determine long-term goals and if the candidate is a personality fit for the specific department. Wanted to make sure assistant was not just a work partner but compatible in terms of lifestyle because of the nature of the position.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online and after they reviewed my resume and credentials, I was invited to complete a video interview. The video interview process was awkward and uncomfortable for me which is probably why I never heard back from them after I completed the interview.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Universal City, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    Inventory Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Spoke on the phone with an HR representative. Then came to the office for 3 in-person interviews - 2 with directors on the sales planning/inventory team and 1 with an ad sales HR director. Was a pretty slow process (took a few months) but everyone was very nice. Since I was a recent college grad the questions were mostly behavioral. Many of the people who interviewed me spent a lot of the interview explaining the digital advertising landscape and then asking me if that was something I thought I would be interested in.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Universal City, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Universal City, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First was a short phone screening then coming in for a 3 person panel interview, mostly stock interview questions of the "Describe a time when..." sort. The department's supervisor, though, did ask better questions. Overall, it was a pretty conversational interview. The final interview was with the vice president of the department. We talked about the position and movement through the company. It was a very fun interview, again, very conversational.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal in December 2016.

    Interview

    Had to do a video recording interview, a phone screen, and in person interview then another phone interview. The video recording was a little awkward, gave you 30 seconds to prepare and 1 minute to answer. I think there was 5 questions. They asked about previous experience, what you hope to gain from the position, and about excel skill. During the in person interview, my interviewer was really nice and easy to talk to. We went over my resume and she asked about a time I had to complete something I didn't know how to do.

    Intern Interview

    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.
