Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in April 2016.

Interview

First step of application was online including resume, cover letter, and few brief questions. The application was on the NBCU careers website.

A few weeks later there was a video interview portion where you pre-recorded responses to 4 questions. You were not able to re-do the questions after they were recorded.

A few weeks after that was the panel interview at 30 rock! The panel lasted a few hours with 7 other candidates.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Three phases, written application, video interview, and in-person group interview. The written application had two short essays. The video interview had a few short questions with a 90 second answer limit, maybe 10 minutes total. The group interview took place at 30 Rock, with 5 or 6 candidates, everyone rotating through a panel interview, an individual interview, a group discussion on a prepared topic, a writing exercise, and a personal presentation.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online during the summer and I got a response via email for the automated video-recording interview about 2 months later. The in person interview came about 3 months after that, and I got the rejection 8 weeks after that. One of the 3 interviewers left in the middle of the interview, so I'm fairly sure there's one person making the final call. I know they interview groups of 7-12 final round applicants at a time, so the people you interview with aren't your only competition. From what I understand your chances are greatly improved if you interned at NBC, know someone in upper management who can vouch for you, or if you're going through the interview process for the second time. I'm fairly certain that a 6 month interview process for an entry level position, hence my negative experience, but this seems to be the best way to get into the company, so grit your teeth and play ball.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied last winter by email and heard back the next day to arrange a phone interview. Received an offer for a final round interview in New York after 2 weeks, but didn't receive the exact date for the in-person panel for another 2 months. Panel consisted of group portion, individual portion, and 2-minute timed presentation. Received an offer exactly 9 weeks after my interview. Long process with many pieces that lasted 6 months total.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview

    The interview process was discouraging. The first step, an introductory phone call, was the basic hiring questions that come from your resume. For example, tell us about your previous work, etc. The next interview was unexpected. I was asked to do a web cam interview. It would seem straightforward, but I found the web cam to be extremely impersonal. I was disappointed by this step.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Burbank, CA).

    Interview

    Contacted via email for an email screen. In the email screen must answer 4 short essays in 1 hour and send back. After 4 months was offered an in person interview. If you are not located in LA you must get yourself here. After the in person interview, in general wait about 3 months to hear back.

    A very lengthy interview process. Included an online application, phone interview, recorded and timed webcam interview, and in-person panel interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website and a few weeks later I received an email to do an online video interview. I was given several options on due dates but the interview was conducted online through video questions. A question flashes on the screen for 30 seconds to 1 minute or so and you have about 1-1.5 minutes to answer. You then move onto the next question. You cannot change answers and the overall process is a bit stressful in that the time is quick and the interview is just you and your computer screen.
