    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal in July 2016.

    Interview

    The hardest part of the process is getting someone to reach out to you after you submit your application. It could be months before you (may) hear from a recruiter. After my submission, I i was reached out to do a pre-recorded video response. The next day, i was called for a phone interview with two recruiters who asked questions and gave me a full idea of what the position was. From there, i spoke with a hiring manager and then a week later, i was asked to send in my resume again. Didn't hear anything again for a week, and was then told that i did not get the job.

    Compensation Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The phone interview was easy and relaxing. The recruiter was friendly and fairly new to the company so she thought for a while when I asked her questions about NBC Universal. However, the recruiter never replied to emails after the phone screening. I never received a rejection email either; I had to go online to see my application status to know that I have been rejected for this position.

    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 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.

    Interview

    Good process, only had to come in three time. Short brief meetings. Met most of the team during interviews and they were thorough on day to day expectations. HR took very long to respond with result, about 3 weeks

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview

    I had a referral but I had to still apply online and follow through with the process. It was well-organized... I did the video interview which allows you 2 retries if you are unhappy with the first go. Few weeks later got an email to set up an in-person interview and 3-4 weeks later I got an offer via email!

    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.
