    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at WGBH (Boston, MA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I initially had a phone interview with an HR Talent Acquisition Manager. I was then invited for an in-person interview with three people who work on the project team for the position I applied for. I was unable to come in for an interview so I really appreciated their flexibility in letting me interview via Skype. Each interview (including the one with HR) latest about 30 minutes. The only downside was that they took a very, very long time to inform me whether I got the job or not.

    Client Services Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brighton, MA

    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.

    Easy 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.

    Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WGBH.

    Interview

    When being interviewed, my interviewer had her phone out on the desk, which is totally normal. I've seen it many times. What I hadn't seen, however, was someone who couldn't put it down. She was constantly typing away on it as I was answering her questions. Very off-putting. I'm surprised if she heard a fifth of what I was saying.

    After the interview, I sent a thank you email and received nothing back.

    Never heard if I got the internship or not.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at WGBH.

    Interview

    Found the internship through university career fair. The interview went very well- mostly conversational. I met with the manager and another member of the accounting group. Both asked me questions and I was able to ask some of my own as well. I heard back from the company within a week after the interview.
