Interview

They ask easy situational questions and value customer service experience. During peak seasons (Summer and Winter Holidays) it was an easy application process and a fast turn around time for hearing back.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Universal Studios (Hollywood, CA) in Sep 2022

Interview

The interview process was ok in the beginning. I did 8 interviews, and then was requested to come on site and meet with everyone all over again along with one of the Directors of Attractions on one of the lots. I didn't like that when i came to sight, I was re-interviewed ALL over again, and the Director who I would have been under was so uninterested when speaking with me and didn't even make eye contact with me. What I also didn't like that is that USH/NBC brand is all bout DEI, but there was not one person on the team that looked like me. I was also told that there could potentially be 12 interviews. Their process was very archaic. Its also unfortunate because I have yet to even receive atleast a "TBNT" email or anything from that team. I'll add its been over a month since those interviews.
