    I received an email from my film school that NBC universal is hiring summer fellows/interns for their television series filming in Canada. Ideal candidates would be in film school in 2nd or 3rd year. I applied immediately. Got a response once I followed up. The interviewer was simply lovely. Very friendly and accommodating. My over the phone interview not only went well she actually recommended me to the production. In person interview was also lovely and I got to know of the result right away. It was simply amazing.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was positive. I made it through three rounds of interviews for a role in Los Angeles, and while I was not selected for the role, I felt very good about my interaction with HR and the hiring manager. The overall process lasted about 3 weeks. I received frequent updates from the recruiter.

    Interview Questions
    • I was emailed by the hiring manager 3 hours before my second interview and asked to prepare a sales presentation for a national client that I would present before a panel of interviewers. It was stressful. Fortunately, I was able to produce a compelling presentation that was very well-received.   Answer Question

    Well the issue came in even trying to schedule the interview. They scheduled a phone interview first and then NEVER called at the time. It was rescheduled 6 times, before I wrote corporate. Very Unprofessional

    Interview Details

    Once you passed the 1st screen, you will receive an email requesting a video interview. I think the HR will contact you directly once they feel you are the right person of the position, but might have interview in person after the video ones.

    Behavioral Skype Interview along with recent events on the Company. Make sure to do your research beforehand and show interest in the company. It was a very short recruitment process and interview before receiving an offer so make sure you are prepared to make a good impression. Overall a easy interview compared to other finance positions.

    I applied online – interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    Filled out online application. A couple weeks later I got an email from HR telling me to do an online video app (which was very interesting, nothing I've ever done before) then about a week later I got an invite to a hiring event from HR. At the hiring event we were all split up into groups based on which show was interested in you. Then you had a one-on-one interview with their hiring manager. Then, a couple of days later I was asked to have a phone interview with the operations manager of the show. A little over a week later I got an email with an offer.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at NBCUniversal.

    Interview Details

    Took us out to a dinner that had only 2 recruiters for about 30 candidates. The interview had two interviewers. The questions were mainly behavioral. It took them over three weeks to get back to me about my results. Overall it was extremely unprofessional and the HR lady was rude and unaccommodating. My emails were never answered.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at NBCUniversal in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first interviewed at a conference which went well, pretty casual questions and good vibes. After that I had to do a video interview ( which apparently is supposed to be first). I thought it was awful since you are using a video tool and are given a question and then timed to record your answer. I much rather talk to someone than watch myself talk on webcam. However I answered the questions fairly well i guess. Lastly I was given a phone interview which was also pretty short and casual. Overall it was a good interview process.
