Amazing learning experience with friendly helpful people

4.3 of 5 stars

Los Angeles, CA | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

classes, one on one meetings, friendly, helpful

Downers

demands for extracurricular work to get noticed were extremely high- felt like a huge negative impact if you were forced to decline an event/ request

Advice to Potential Interns

Take notes, try not to get discouraged, try not to take on too much, don't worry about getting a job after the internship just work hard and enjoy your time there

Advice to Management

Let the interns know it's ok to say no if they have to, make them feel comfortable if they aren't able to do something rather than feeling guilty or pressure. So long as they try hard and give it their best they shouldn't be expected to meet all demands at all times, especially if they cant come in full time.

Amazing Internship Focuses on Building Professional Relationships and Facilitating Interns' Growth

4.3 of 5 stars

Other (US) | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The Nickelodeon internship gives you opportunities to learn a lot about one specific department, but also learn a lot about the studio as a whole. The studio places a heavy emphasis on community. I was not only close with the people in my department, but also interns in other departments and full-time employees in other departments. Employees there are very willing to meet with interns and give them advice. There are also a lot of perks, such as social events and classes, provided to interns.

Downers

I didn't really dislike anything about my experience at Nickelodeon.

Advice to Potential Interns

Nickelodeon is looking passionate, considerate, professional people. Be yourself and show what makes you unique during the interview process.

An incredible opportunity within an incredible company and network

4.4 of 5 stars

Los Angeles, CA | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

the ability to network around the studio so freely, the intern lunches/classes, intern group events, the environment of the company, the actual building which boosts morale on a day to day basis, the constant warm welcome from all of the employees

Downers

I do not have any complaints

Advice to Potential Interns

I think this internship is an amazing opportunity and even if you are not hired in the immediate position you wish to be in, the company culture is incredibly supportive and will help get you to that position in such a short amount of time

Would You Recommend

Yes

RADICAL!

I love that its so focused on helping the intern learn and immerse themselves within the animation industry

Downers

It's minimum wage, but that makes sense.... it just makes it hard to account for costs of commuting/living

Advice to Potential Interns

Remember to make sure you're financially stable enough to do the internship, calculate all that out... but you'll have a BLAST when you're here!!!

Would You Recommend

Yes

Learn the ropes in the industry and build lasting working relationships.

coworkers, management of internship, classes and other interns

Downers

nothing i can think of.

Advice to Potential Interns

it's a really friendly and comfortable work environment. people really judge you based on your merit and as long as you do your work and work hard you'll have an amazing time.

Advice to Management

I wish there was more employee retention; but it's a bit impossible in this industry.

Sample Interview Questions

"tell us more about the projects you worked on at school?
"what nick shows did you watch as a kid?"
"how do you solve problems or conflict in a group situation?"
"how do you like working in a team? are you a team player?"

Would You Recommend

Yes

Intense but rewarding internship gains you friends, plenty of opportunities to learn and real workplace experience.

4.4 of 5 stars

Los Angeles, CA | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The structure of the entire internship is fantastic, I've never been through anything so well done. From intern classes to lunches with executives to game nights, there was a true caring for the intern experience from the HR team that designed the program.

Downers

Possibly as someone who had already a good deal of experience in the television industry, I found almost all of my tasks quite easy, and was able to complete them quickly. I had tried to branch out into more challenging work, but I found that many of the supervisors had a hard time entrusting me with it, despite the ease I had been able to accomplish my previous tasks.

Advice to Potential Interns

Going into the internship it is actively encouraged to meet with as many people as you can (within reason, of course). This is of great benefit to you, as many employees are happy to sit down and let you pick their brains for an hour or so over lunch, and is a great learning experience. If you feel like you will have a hard time meeting with people one-on-one, maybe you should reconsider the internship, because of it's high social interaction likelihood on any given day. Or, use it as an opportunity to bolster that area of yourself!

Advice to Management

As a foreign person I would love to see more of an effort made to hire interns that come from other countries. As happy as I was to intern at Nick, I wish there was more of a push to hire me, visa hurdles aside.

Sample Interview Questions

- Why Nickelodeon?
- Many questions based on resume
- Where do you see yourself in the future?

Library Science Student Helps Preserve Nickelodeon’s history

4.3 of 5 stars

Los Angeles, CA | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Working intimately with my department and helping organize and execute preservation strategies for Nickelodeon’s digital and physical assets.

Downers

The pay wasn't great.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be enthusiastic about what you do, but also conduct yourself professionally at all times (even when meeting the creator of your favorite Nicktoon).

Advice to Management

I think Nick should try to pay their interns a bit more. Especially when various interns are relocating to participate in the internship program.

Sample Interview Questions

My employer asked me various question pertaining to my background with archives and archival work, so I guess it's very specific to the department conducting the interview.

Greatest experience of my life

The culture at the studio focuses heavily on supporting the interns. They get to meet and network with so many people and there are always events to get them acclimated to the industry.

Downers

I was not located at the main studio so it was harder for me to attend activities and meet with people.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be yourself and have fun! These people aren't just employers and coworkers, they're friends.

Advice to Management

Great Overview of Children's Animation

4.1 of 5 stars

Los Angeles, CA | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I really loved all the opportunities to meet with Nickelodeon employees who served varying roles in the animation process. There was a minimum of one meeting per week, but it usually ended up being about three meetings per week. We got great introductions into each department of the network. We also got to participate in all Nickelodeon celebrations/screenings.

Downers

I really loved getting an introduction into each department, but I didn't feel like I was placed in the department that best fit my background.

Advice to Potential Interns

I did really feel like Nickelodeon was looking to find new employees and creative talent from the start of the internship process. It was a well thought out program that was designed to find people who are a good match for working at the company. I highly recommend it.

Would You Recommend

Yes

The perfect learning environment to solidify my goal of working in the television industry.

Hands on learning experiences

Downers

Limited number of work hours. I would have loved to work full time, however, the program did not support it.

Advice to Potential Interns

Remain confident in your interview and be open to any department available

Advice to Management

Allow interns to work more hours/days.
