    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.

    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal in November 2016.

    Interview

    Process took 8 weeks. Initially applied and got a screening interview. Then brought in to meet with hiring managers the next week. Received a homework assignment to complete in a week and then was invited to another series of interviews with more internal members. HR asked for 5 references to submit via Checkster (think SAT or GRE type of essay questions they have to fill out). Two weeks later, I was told they went with someone internally.

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview

    After a little more than a month I was sent an email to have an interview. It was a digital interview that recorded you talking. It gave about 30 seconds of prep and then you had a minute to two minutes to answer. If you messed up at all you are given one redo at the end of the process to reset the entire process.
