    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sesame Workshop in September 2016.

    Interview

    It wasn't a long process at all. I appiled one week through the companys website and got contacted back one week later to come in. I thought the interview was going well. The interviewer asked me questions based on my resume and we even started to have conversations about lighter topics. All in all I thought the interview went great. After the interview I was told I would get contacted back the next week about a second interview but it never happened, and even to this day I never recieved any follow up from the interviewer regarding my standing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sesame Workshop (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was called in for an interview with the Director of Human Resources after submitting my resume via someone who worked there who I had recently met. It barely felt like an interview at all, instead felt like I was catching up with an old friend. We talked about some of the important stuff, like Microsoft Office knowledge, why I enjoy being an assistant, stuff like that, but for the most part, I was able to just share who I am and felt like she really listened to me, getting to know me as a person and making sure I would be a good fit for the team.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sesame Workshop (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I had two interviews on two seperate days - One with the HR Assistant and one with the HR Senior Generalist. It was very informal and felt more like an informative conversation than an "interview" where I would have just had to answer questions. I got to know a lot about my future supervisor and what it would be like working there, which helped me determine if the internship would be the right fit for me instead of just the other way around.
