I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at NBCUniversal in January 2014.
Interview Details I applied during early December 2013 and received an email 1 month later from a recruiter requesting a 30 min phone screening. The phone screening with the recruiter was basic and went over the usual introduction points.
I was then scheduled for 1 on 1 interview with the hiring manager at the West Los Angeles office. The interview was very laid back/casual, lasted the scheduled 30 minutes, and consisted of very cliche interview questions:
1. Why do you want to leave you current company?
2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
3. Why NBC Universal?
4. Can you learn new software quick?
I did not get selected for a 2nd interview, but was not kept in the loop by the recruiter which made for a negative hiring process.
NBC Universal recruiters: Please communicate better with candidates that are not selected.
