    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Viacom (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    My interview was via a google hangout interview with the manager and senior manager within the Nick Jr. department. The interview was casual and comforting. They asked about the experiences on my resume and asked about the Nick Jr. app platform. They informed me about the position and what my day-to-day tasks were. To summarize the interview felt like a conversation.

    Casual and short (10-15 minutes). HR asked you basic questions and forward your application to the department they think you are most suitable for. I applied for the Spring 2017 general internship and the HR asked me to send her working samples.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Viacom (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by someone from the Campus Relations department in HR. I was given contact information for hiring manager from 3 different departments. I set up interviews with each. One department contacted me back within a day or two and said they were no longer able to have interns this semester. The HR contact contacted me to tell me that as well. Within another week or so I heard back from the HR contact saying one department moved forward with another candidate, but the other department offered me the position. After I accepted I was sent a welcome email with more detailed information and given options for an Orientation date.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Viacom (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted a week later for an in-person interview the next week. I never met with anyone from HR, just the person who I would be working directly under. She was very nice and asked appropriate questions and was easy to talk to. She asked me expected questions such as how to do manage stress/multiple tasks, situational questions, past experiences, etc. Then she pulled in another person on the team that was higher up. He wanted to know more about me and what I thought about the role. He didn't have a lot of questions for me, he really wanted me to ask him a lot of questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Viacom (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    This was possibly the most unprofessional experience I've ever had in interviewing with a company. After an hour commute into Manhattan and paying $2.75 each way on the subway, they only asked me 1 question: Tell me about yourself. The interview (with 2 interviewers) lasted a total of 11 minutes, most of it my questions for them. After over 3 months, I have not heard anything from them, and I have emailed the HR contact and both interviewers several times. If this is how they treat potential employees, I don't want to know how they treat actual employees.
