    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Really brief interview with the Multimedia Manager and an Editor for Bravo Digital. We went into a nearby lobby where they both sat down with some questions asking me about my experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Universal City, CA).

    Interview

    Online app, video interview with 4 questions and a minute per answer. Few weeks later was called in to interview with supervisors. I had applied for every position relating to marketing and got called in to interview for the department I was least interested in. Interview in person was one of the tougher ones I've experienced.

    Reasons for Declining

    Office in Universal City is very far from my school, hours are 9-6, very corporate atmosphere

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Universal City, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my school for a spring internship. I heard back a few weeks later and was brought in for an interview. The interview was fairly typical although I interviewed with several (four) people from the department at the same time which made it a little more difficult. Questions were standard, nothing too surprising. A couple of weeks after the interview I was told via email that I received the position.
