    Production Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Nickelodeon (Burbank, CA) in March 2020.

    Interview

    I was called in by the manager of the team for an interview. The team was very friendly and it overall felt like a really good fit. After a second in person interview, they told me they would get back to me the next day. Then the pandemic went full swing and I haven't heard anything since. No one from HR/recruiting contacted me at all during the process. It's a bummer. I wish I had at least gotten some kind of response instead of being left to wonder what happened.

    Social Media Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nickelodeon (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    My interview process was fairly simple. I applied online through the ViacomCBS portal and got an email from a recruiter for a phone interview. She asked basic interview questions and for some background info (major, year, experience with certain programs). I then had a second in-person interview at their LA office and was interviewed by the team. They were very friendly and asked me about my general expertise in the field and what I though my strengths were (software and soft-skill wise) as well as my favorite Nickelodeon shows and characters.

    Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Nickelodeon (New York, NY) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online, recruiter wasn’t a recruiter or HR person, it was an employee that ran their own team and wanted to add a designer. They were away so I had to schedule the interview 3 weeks out. They were well prepared for the interview and I talked about my work and goals at a new job. They loved the details how I painted my nails orange, had nickelodeon apparel and asked about nickelodeon community events. I spoke to 2 other designers after individually, they both asked similar questions so I felt like I was repeating myself, but I showed them each different work based on the research i did for their portfolios. The teams really loved parts of nickelodeon and it was clear they were all friendly people and were looking for a great personality. They complimented my work and later that day I received an email I would be completing a design test for the next step. (This was not informed in the interview) Due to my personal time restraints and current full time job, I completed the 10 hour design test overnight in 2 days, and heard back saying I had wonderful and we’re impressed with the detail of my work, and they would be in touch soon. After a week, I reached out and was told they were still interviewing and would know next week. Another week passes and I am told to wait another week. I was not chosen for the role and after requesting feedback on my design test and how I could improve should I want to reapply to Nick in the future, I was ignored without answers after the rejection. I really enjoyed the interview process here, it seemed organized and friendly, but I was extremely let down by the lack of transparency by the end of the process and feel I was taken advantage of for my work I provided. I wonder if I had been in contact with an HR manager if I would have had more transparency or feedback.

    Interview

    Quick turnaround, but then there was a hiring freeze and they didn't hire anyone at all for the position. I don't think this was the fault of the people at Nick, but rather a bureaucratic issue with higher ups at Viacom.
