    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at ABC News in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.
