    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Viacom Media Networks.

    Interview

    Sent in a cover letter through my schools job portal. I got a call back and I went in thinking it was a normal interview .It was the weirdest interview I have ever been to. The questions were so weird that when I tell people they all laugh. I guess, I walked away with a memorable story. Plus, the guy is pretty notorious for being "out of the box", if you catch my drift.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you know about me?
      What do you know about my assistant/ previous intern? ( I'm being serious, it was asked)
      What do you know about Viacom?
      If you were in a room with fifty people and everyone had to say a quality about themselves that stands them apart, what would you say stands you apart that none of the fifty people before said?   1 Answer

    Integrated Marketing Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Viacom Media Networks.

    Interview

    I have never been interviewed where the HR person asks me what it's like to work at my present company, because THEY are looking for a job. Not to mention they didn't ask me a single question about my 12+ years in media. Still in complete shock that executive level talent (or any talent for that matter) is interviewed this way.
