    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at National Geographic.

    Interview

    Slow and lengthy process. I was contacted 4 months after I applied. Then I went through a series of Skype interviews with different department directors. I got the job, but I had to wait one month for HR to approve all the paperwork.

    Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Geographic (Washington, DC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The HR system seemed daunting, but my submission made it to the surface and I was contacted a few days later by an HR representative. After a brief screening call, I was put in touch with the hiring manager in the communications department. We had a brief call before I was invited to interview in person. I met several people in the department, and all seemed very congenial and experienced. Questions were focused on determining if I was the best personal and cultural fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at National Geographic in March 2017.

    Interview

    Process took 2 months. I first had a phone interview and then was asked to come in for a face-to-face interview. The whole process was fine and hr representative was very responsive until my last interview. After my last interview they told me I would be notified within two weeks if I was given the position or not. After two weeks I emailed and received no response or update. I emailed again after another two weeks and still got no response. I waited a full month after my last email to email one more time, and again I received no response. I was very disappointed and upset that I was not given the courtesy of a response, especially from a company that I had admired for a very long time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at National Geographic (Washington, DC) in September 2014.

    Interview

    It was brief. They want to know you are a hard worker and are willing to do things outside of the typical job description. Past experience in the field is considered but not crucial.
