    Research Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (Athens, GA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my school submitting my resume and written answers to a few questions based on my purpose and goals.
    The interview was rather informal, the interviewer asked typical questions he told me he googled on his smartphone along with questions on my past experiences. He explained the position for what he said was the 10th time in two days.
    Although I enjoyed the interview and it was refreshingly honest, it did not seem very effective in choosing a candidate.

    Intern Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (Atlanta, GA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and quickly invited to a phone interview with a couple of their engineers. They asked a lot of personal and social questions, sometimes dipping briefly into very light background questions. According to them, they were looking to fill the position quickly, and the lack of any in-person interview combined with no technical questions makes me suspect that they had unofficially decided on a candidate, and that the interview itself was done entirely as a courtesy.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (Atlanta, GA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process began with a video interview, followed by an interview with 4 HR managers. After that, I had an interview with the person who needed the assistant, and lastly with the HR Executive. I got very far in the process but was ultimately not offered the position; however, when 400+ people apply for a position and I make it to the final 4, I consider it a success. Because at that point, it's down to splitting hairs / personal preference -- I wouldn't have made it past all the preliminary stages if I weren't qualified for the position.

    All-in-all, my interview experience with CNN / Turner Broadcasting was great and ... kind of fun. It confirmed that it was a good fit for me, and I have continued to seek out positions that suit my qualifications.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    First completed a recorded video interview. Then two months later was called by the department head. Very easy and conversational. Hiring Manager answered all questions I had about the job and then some. She ended the call with "My last question is: Do you want the internship?" Very straight forward.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    You'll get an email stating that you've been selected to go further and asked to do a video interview, with about a 1:30 min to answer each question.
    Then if they like your video interview, you proceed to a phone or Skype interview.
    That's it. Pretty Simple.
    Both interviews asked the usual questions about yourself and past background jobs.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    First I applied online. I was then instructed to take a mathematics test within 3 days of the email. The email was sent to me about a week after I applied. I passed the test and was then invited to interview. The interview consisted of basic questions. It was a pretty solid interview. I then told that they would keep in touch about the decision. Basically after following up twice and a month after the in-person interview, I was told I was not offered the position. The overall process from the application to the decision was about 6 weeks.

    International Sales Operations Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (Atlanta, GA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through the parent company (Time Warner) in January online. I had found the posting on LinkedIn. It was a 1 hour interview in-person with two supervisors in International sales operations. It was clear that one had the seniority but both were very involved in the process. They contacted all applicants within a week to inform them of their decision. I recommend always sending thank you notes. If it's a position you really really want then send individual hand written notes. (Note: This is especially well received in the Southern states)

    1.) Video Interview
