    I worked at Viacom full-time


    Amazing company - amazing department - brilliant team - doing their absolute best to ensure Nickelodeon is the number one brand in kid's media.


    Nothing - I had an incredible experience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! I learned so much from my mentors at Nickelodeon, and still keep in touch with them today. Continue to keep open lines of communication with your teammates about how they can improve, and if they want to grow, change teams, etc. I was so happy to see that people were able to navigate laterally amongst different departments if they wanted to. Nick is truly a great spot to be!

    Average Interview


    I interviewed at Viacom (New York, NY) in June 2013.


    The hiring process began with an initial interview with HR. Afterwards, I was then forwarded to the hiring manager of the department I was applying for. A few days later I was called in and the interview was very casual - more so a conversation.
