    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at ABC News in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    This was a phone interview with an unknown person which resulted in a job offer. Initial communication with the company was very professional, but the phone interviewer was rather uncommunicative and unhelpful. I did not feel that this person's demeanor was representative of the overall culture of the company.

    Short. It's better to take sometime to look at your contract and get back to them with what you want. If you don't get the money you are expecting, then ask for an extra week of vacation or any other bennefit taht could valance lack of better monetary compensation.
