    Anonymous Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The process is quite long. First, there is an online written application. Next is the TTI interview (which is a video interview). The video interview was about 4 questions. Last was the panel interview. From reading previous Glassdoor reviews I thought it was going to be an NBC Pop-Quiz. That's not what this panel interview was at all. We were asked behavioral questions. The panel interview consisted of a group discussion, group interview, one-on-one interview and then a 2 minute presentation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process has been streamlined with greater consistency and transparency—my experience was actually really fun, nothing like the scary stories on here from the past. I applied with a cover letter, resume and two essays. About three weeks later, I got the invitation for a virtual interview that took maybe 20 minutes to complete. After that, they interviewed candidates for three weeks and I heard back at the end of the month.

    Easy and non-stressful interview process. I can see where it will help to have a connection in order to get your resume to the top of the pile. Once the team reached out the process was simple and professional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I received an email from an NBC HR rep requesting a phone interview about a week after applying online. After the phone interview, which was successful, she coordinated an in-person interview with the hiring manager at 30 Rock. I thought the interview went well--I was there an hour and we had a lot to talk about--but then nothing. I was surprised and disappointed because it felt like I would be going on to the final round. A few months later the position had been taken down. I was not contacted informing me that they had selected another candidate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    There isn't much of an interview process when you start off as an intern. In my experience, if you're already interning in a department that has a need for extra workers (which isn't usually the case) you're practically handed the job.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I did a phone interview and got a call from one of the coordinators during my scheduled time. Overall it was very formal, much like a college interview, rather than a back and forth conversational type of interview. The coordinator asked me a series of pre-written questions. I felt like the interviewer was not very friendly or interested in my answers. It seemed like they were impatient and just needed to get through the list of required interview questions.
