    NBC Interview

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

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online for the internship in December and did not hear back until February. From what was shared from everyone, it's a three part process consisting of web/video, phone, and in-person. I was invited to complete a web/video interview, which was a new process to me, but wasn't too bad. I'd recommend practicing in front of a camera before recording yourself for the interview so you're more comfortable essentially speaking to yourself because the questions pop up on the screen.

    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.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Burlington, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and they emailed me for a phone interview. The phone interview went well and the recruiter was professional. It was exactly a great fit on either side, but I was still a little interested, so was a bit disappointed when I never heard back at all. An email at least noting the position has been filled would have been nice.
