    This was through my school and they vetted the candidates for ABC, as well as interviewed the students for them.

After they reviewed our essays and resumes, they then called us in for in-person interviews.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at ABC News (New York, NY) in July 2010.

    Interview

    They did not provide travel/accomodations for the interview. The skills test took about 1.5 hours and actual one-on-one interview about 30 minutes. The recruiter was friendly, but the person I interviewed with was less approachable. Basically, they did not seem friendly and I did not have a good vibe from the place.

    Senior Manager of Editing Operations Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at ABC News (New York, NY) in August 2009.

    Interview

    Contacted by an HR recruiter and qualified to meet a hiring manager after a phone interview. Was e-mailed a lot of paperwork to fill out including an authorization to order a "Consumer report and/or an investigative consumer report." I was Interviewed by three different people on a 1:1 basis. First the hiring manager, then his boss and then his boss' boss. A lot of repetitive questions. For a television environment, it had a very corporate feel. All the men were in suits and ties which I have not found to be the norm in this industry.
