    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Universal City, CA
    Accepted Offer
    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.

    Vice President Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Universal City, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I met with the recruiter after a quick phone call. They told me about the position and asked me several questions about my history and style of management. I was told that the position would possible be filled by an in house person. that was indeed what ended up happening. The interview went well I think. Although I get the feeling that the person I was speaking with was not sure what she was interviewing me for. She did not follow up with me. I called her and she didn't know anything. I called my friend that had referred me and discovered that the position had been filled internally. I don't think the interviewer knew that.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

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

    Assistant Manager Interview

    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.

    Intern Interview

    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.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NBCUniversal (Universal City, CA).

    Interview

    Unusually fast - I suspect they had someone for the job already but that person decided to opt out at the last minute. I was actually interviewing for another position, but when I talked to HR, they asked if I was interested in scripted programming (which is my dream job!). The next day I interviewed with the Director (the interview went very well), then she had me do script coverage on a couple of scripts. After, I in the interviewed with a few of the assistants. I was offered the job the following week.

    Interview Questions

    Director Interview

    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
