    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Studio City, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Studio City, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online in December 2016 and didn't receive an email until late February inquiring to submit a video interview within 48 hours or receiving the email. After submitting I received an email stating that they will contact me 3 weeks after the interview and I did not receive a response. Don't expect a response since they have thousands of applicants trying for the same position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Thorough yet personal, many questions to determine long-term goals and if the candidate is a personality fit for the specific department. Wanted to make sure assistant was not just a work partner but compatible in terms of lifestyle because of the nature of the position.

    Intern Interview

    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.

    Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very short online video interview where questions appear on the screen and you are given a short time to answer each one. This is not a skype call, but instead a one sided interview, and someone will most likely reach out to you after with further information. It is the preliminary interview for the position.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Universal City, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Universal City, CA).

    Interview

    Probably the worst recruiting experience of any media company. Recruiters are completely unresponsive, they treat you like a number and like they are doing you a favor. After beating down the door of one of their recruiters I was told, "we get so much interest that we can't respond to everyone." Never mind the fact that I had several interviews for the position and was never told yes or no. There simply was no communication after I had several interviews until I was told they had too many candidates. I wonder how my boss would feel if I told her that I had too much work to do and couldn't call all my customers? I totally get that you can't reach out to every applicant, but once you e had a few interviews they should not ignore you for weeks on end. Poor communication. Lack of follow through and a mentality that you're bothering them is how I have come to think of recruiting at NBCU

    Account Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burbank, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Burbank, CA).

    Interview

    Applied through career site. Recruiter from NY called for a screening interview about 2 weeks later. Then I was brought in to meet the Director and Manager of the team. At the on site interview, I was introduced and interviewed by a few more members of the team making my interview an hour longer then estimated, which was fine. The team was friendly and upfront about the position and the office seemed to have a really nice culture. I was brought in a second time to meet my would be direct manager and the VP. Then went through a reference check where they called previous supervisors. After all of this they scheduled me with 2 more interview calls with 2 managers in New York. The last two seemed excessive (especially for an entry level role) but everyone was so pleasant and it seemed like such a great place to work so I did not mind any extra steps! Whole process was about a month. HR was very upfront about process and were easy to work with.

    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.

    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.
