    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ESPN (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Standard interview process with HR and then department head and some staff. Nice to have the opportunity to meet and see the facility and operation. Was able to ask any questions and meet other employees and discuss work culture, environment and specifics other staff enjoyed. Was able to follow up with candid questions.
