    Associate Counsel Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at WNET (New York, NY) in September 2008.

    Interview

    Interview process was a bit haphazard. not everyone scheduled to interview was actually available and one did not know any details about the position they were hiring for.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    pretty shady. the person negotiating was obviously not interested in being fair.

    Social Media Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at WNET (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The experience was very smooth and pleasant. I was contact by an HR representative, who didn't waste my time with stupid situational questions. She rather booked me for an interview, we talked a little, and let me go -- the way a talk with HR should go, as HR reps don't understand the jobs they are recruiting for!

    My interview wasn't so much a formal interview as it was a conversation between me and the man who would be my superior. We talked for about an hour. He was interested in my career path, my skills, and we talked back and forth about what he was looking for and what I could offer. However, it became very clear I was grossly under-qualified for what they needed. But it was one of the most enjoyable interviewing experiences I've ever had.

    Best of all: I didn't get an offer, but HR contacted me to let me know they were pursuing other candidates, which you'd think would be a common practice, but it's so, so rare that happens. WNET did contact me, though, and I respect that.

    Director, Development Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at WNET (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Submitted on line, had a personal referral so I went to the front of the line. Had a lot of experience in the space and hit it off with the hiring manager and the HR intake person. Over a 6-week period interviewed with 4people in top management. All went fine, they were amiable. Then a group meeting with the team I would be managing. All straightforward.

    Interview Questions

    • They were pretty softball questions. Like I said the job wasn't a stretch. But my hiring mgr was concerned I was overqualified but liked me enough to figure we could build a path.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Straightforward. One conversation because I knew what the space was playing. The hiring manager didn't play games.

    Marketing/Fundraising Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at WNET (New York, NY) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and was scheduled for two back-to-back interviews with the two main people the person in that position would be working with. The job wasn't for me, but everyone I met there was very nice and passionate about what they do, and it was great to talk with all of them. They asked a lot of typical questions (examples of times I faced x problem, got x results, etc) and were very personable and easy to talk to.
