    Page Program Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    There are three steps to the interview process. You send in an application online (the application is extensive, with several short answer questions about why you would like to be a part of the program. If you move on to the next step, it will be a video interview. The video portion has 3-5 questions. You will have about one minute to read the question, and one to three minutes to answer on the spot. If you move on to the next step, you are at the final round. It is an in person interview, where there is an individual interview, a group interview, and a panel interview. The whole process (from initial online application to final interview) takes about 2 months.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    1. Fill out online application with two essay questions
    2. Video interview (your answers are recorded via webcam but you're not talking to anyone) Its awkward but also convenient cause you can take it when you're ready. I thought this was really difficult because the you only had 15 seconds to read the questions (which were fairly long) and thing of your response before it started recording you. I think there were 4 questions.
    3. Panel Interview is like a 3-4 hour process where you go to the NBCUniversal building and are with 5 or 6 other candidates. I was interviewed by 3 NBC employees. We had a presentation that we had to prepare for (we were given the prompt 48 hours before our panel), then we were each asked two questions but they were the same for everyone so if you're at the end you had the whole time to prepare your answer. Then we were individually interviewed for 15 minutes. Finally we had a group project we worked on (drawing a Instagram post for the Page Insta). This was quite awkward because the interviewers sat in the room with us while we worked on it but couldn't help or answer any questions.

    Interview

    I applied in May ad was notified in July of an interview process. After interviewing with their computerized video chat process (they ask you a question and you get 2 minutes to film a response). I was not contacted until September for a phone interview that lasted around 30 minutes with my potential boss. She set up an in person interview at the studio the next day that lasted about 10 minutes. At that stage, she still had to interview two other people. She notified me within a week that I had the position.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Universal City, CA).

    Interview

    Received a screening call from HR. Then was brought in for an in person interview. The interview was with both the hiring manager and the Director. It was laid back, easy going environment. They were well prepared with good questions that pertained to the position. I like that they had looked into my background and new my resume before I got there, because they were able to ask good questions about it instead of spending the interview reading it for the first time or asking me to walk them through it.

    The interview was direct and short. The next day HR called to tell me I will going into the next stage of interview and that they needed to do a background check. I never went in for interviews again, and after the background check cleared they sent an offer.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Studio City, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted via FaceTime and the interviewer was pleasant throughout. He asked the standard questions about why I was interested in the position, what my strengths were, what I was looking for, my work history, and so on. Unfortunately they put the position on hold after the initial interview, so I did not advance in the process. The next step would have been meeting with the executives I'd be assisting and one other executive in the department.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Received email for video interview 1 day after applying online. Unfortunately, after you take this video interview, unless they want you to move you up in the hiring process - no follow-up what so ever. Not even an email saying that the position is closed. I waited 2 months and found out through LinkedIn & NBC job status that the position was filled/closed. I understand it's a big company, but it'd still be nice to get those automated "we moved on with different candidate" emails.

    Interview

    It's a long process and you don't really hear anything between each phase. You apply online, then if a recruiter calls you, you have a meeting with them, then if they think you're a good fit, you then have a meeting with the hiring manager for the role... The decision won't be made for another 30 days after....

    Interview

    Very pleasant experience. Had 4 interviews and really enjoyed the process. Quick and efficient and really made you feel excited about the opportunity. They screened over the phone, had me come in for 2 interviews with the executives I'd assist and then another interview with HR at the end. Unfortunately the temp decided to stay on, which is why no offer was made.
