    NBC Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online for the internship in December and did not hear back until February. From what was shared from everyone, it's a three part process consisting of web/video, phone, and in-person. I was invited to complete a web/video interview, which was a new process to me, but wasn't too bad. I'd recommend practicing in front of a camera before recording yourself for the interview so you're more comfortable essentially speaking to yourself because the questions pop up on the screen.

    Associate Systems Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied back in February and didn't hear from the Recruiter until mid to end March. I had a initial phone interview with the recruiter describing the position. Then she schedule a phone interview with a peer 2 days later. The interview was very simple no technical questions. The interviewer just asked if I had experience with Java and Oracle Database experience, which I did. Overall, it seem as if the interviewer was burned out and the interview was dragging on. The interview consist of many behavior questions. It sounds as if the company went through some layoffs.

    Online application, video interview, then long interview: group panel asking 3 questions per person, individual interview, group project, presentation.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted about three weeks later to do a digital interview. There were nine written questions that I had to type an answer to. Next, there were three questions that I had to respond to via webcam. The question pops up on the screen and you have 30 seconds to think and up to two minutes to answer. This is a one-sided interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 3 different people in addition to the recruiter. I made the 3rd round and found out later I was a finalist against 1 other candidate. They never told me I didn't get the position, I had to write them a gentle email "thanking" them for chance to interview. Strung along for 2 months then not told until I found out from the other candidate...waited 2weeks then emailed them to say "thanks".

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Like everyone else says, the interview process was a heartbreaking one. I applied on a pipe dream, thinking there was no way I'd get through. But I ended up making it to the final round, flew to New York, waited around for two weeks and then ended up not getting it.

    Interview

    I applied online and after they reviewed my resume and credentials, I was invited to complete a video interview. The video interview process was awkward and uncomfortable for me which is probably why I never heard back from them after I completed the interview.

    Inventory Analyst Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Spoke on the phone with an HR representative. Then came to the office for 3 in-person interviews - 2 with directors on the sales planning/inventory team and 1 with an ad sales HR director. Was a pretty slow process (took a few months) but everyone was very nice. Since I was a recent college grad the questions were mostly behavioral. Many of the people who interviewed me spent a lot of the interview explaining the digital advertising landscape and then asking me if that was something I thought I would be interested in.
