    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WGBH (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    After submitting application and resume and cover letter, there was a phone interview then an in person interview. It was the typical interview process and wasn't difficult but they're very selective and it's very competitive.

    Marketing Copywriter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WGBH (Boston, MA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed with WGBH twice in the same week for a total of four hours.

    The interview felt disjointed and some key interviewers appeared not to be in command of their material; however, most of the team members I met were kind and welcoming, if only superficially so.

    I received a cliche, standard reply from the human resources assistant informing me I wasn’t selected and a week later I received the same exact message from the WGBH HR system. Given I spent four hours with the organization, a scripted reply is clearly unprofessional and disreputable. Most corporations wouldn’t have the gall to do that after two interviews and four hours.

    WGBH management did not operate in good faith and it's a shame that an organization that supposedly serves the public would conduct itself in such a manner.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WGBH.

    Interview

    They were very tech savvy, I had multiple interview via video conference and really got a feel for the culture. They attract smart talent and have a good human resources team.

    HR Business Partner Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WGBH (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Very scattered and rather unprofessional as we were interrupted twice. After the interview I sent a thank you note and reinforced my interest in joining the team. That was over 6 weeks ago; I have never had any communication from the organization since then. Weak and inefective team that makes a poor representation of this non profit organization.

    Client Services Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brighton, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WGBH (Brighton, MA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    There was a phone interview to discuss the position and my general background. It closed with plans to set up a meeting, and send a standard application form and an online test to complete.

    The test was an online personality assessment survey.

    The face-to-face meeting was separate interviews with the hiring manager and an HR representative.

    The hiring manager went into detail about the organization, the history of the particular group and their needs. From there, it was a behavioral interview looking at how I respond to different types of situations.

    The HR manager provided a general discussion of benefits. Very unnecessary at this stage.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WGBH (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email a month later from HR. I had a brief 15 minute phone interview with them and then was asked to come in for an in-person interview. It lasted about an hour and interviewed with three people.

    Most of the questions are pretty on the book and dry interview questions. For example, what challenges you overcame, etc.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WGBH in May 2017.

    Interview

    Easy online application, followed by a phone interview with HR that was pretty quick and too the point. I felt pretty positive about my chances after that. Later the same day they emailed me to schedule an interview, which was 3.5 hours long. About a week later I received a generic email saying they went with another candidate. Everyone was pleasant to speak with during the interview but I think its unfair to drag candidates through that long and rigorous of an interview process not knowing how seriously you're being considered for the position. That is an unusually long time to set aside for a job interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at WGBH (Boston, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Very easygoing and casual. Just wanted to see if I was a good fit for the company, and probably easy because internship was unpaid. I enjoyed the interview and found my co workers to be very pleasant.
