    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Showtime Networks (New York, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online. About 3-4 weeks later, an HR rep called to do a preliminary interview (ie Why Showtime?) and then we scheduled an interview with the department supervisors. A week after that, I interviewed with the directors of the department.
