    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    They had the worst interview process. I was contacted only by email to set up a web interview. I was give a date the interview was due by and completed within the timeframe. After the interview I reached out to HR to inform that I had completed the interview. It was radio silence after that! I never heard anything. I would have appreciated feedback either way. It's very unprofessional to ask someone to interview and then ignore them afterwards

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Super quick. They hire internally so definitely network with producers and hr personnel. I wouldn't have gotten an interview without reaching out to hr. Interns get their own hr department which is super helpful. They really want to capture great talent right out of college so definitely use them as a resource. They have the ears of the producers

    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview

    Straight forward and no surprises. Phone interview w/HR, then phone interview w/ hiring manager, then in-person interview with hiring manager and their boss. The HR person never got back to me. I reached out to them several times. Their response -- "I'll get back to you next week" and they never did. In fairness to those potential candidates, honesty is appreciated. HR should let the candidates know they are no longer being considered for the position, not promise an update that never comes.

These questions cover school, what area of nbc interest you the most, a project you have worked on that you're proud of, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    After applying online through their campus2career website, I got a response from their HR team to send in a video interview. Didn't hear back from them for over a month, but finally got an email back from another HR of the specific department I had applied for. I came in to interview with them, met with 2 different employers, and never heard back again. Interview questions were very typical and vague. Nothing tricky or too hard to answer.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I received an email saying I need to take an online interview about after three weeks I sent in my resume and portfolio. Interview questions asked about my education, current status, and video interview asking few questions. For example, what can you contribute to NBCUniversal? What do you know about NBCUniversal, etc. The recruiter was very nice and responsive.
    Then I got a call from the recruiter shortly after and had another phone call interview with her. She was very nice, and it was very casual and nice. And I am still waiting for them to get back to me.

    Make sure you know enough about the company and sound enthusiastic when you are talking in the interview, i think personality matters a lot too.
