I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at FOX News in November 2012.

Interview Details – I applied on their website, submitting my resume and cover letter. Eventually, I was emailed and asked to set up a phone interview with an HR representative. The interview was rather brief, and mostly involved going over my resume and asking me to evaluate some things, in addition to the usual question along the lines of "Why Fox News?." I was offered the position through email a couple weeks later.

Interview Question – Rather straightforward. The only question that caught me off guard slightly was when they asked to name my favorite anchor on fox news. Truth be told, I never watch.   Answer Question

Interview Details – Internship hiring process was seamless. Applied online and received an email for a phone interview within two weeks. Phone interview was relatively easy and probably didn't last more than 15 minutes. Asked when I would hear whether or not I got the internship, and didn't hear back. I emailed the person who interviewed me and received a phone call within that week telling me I had the internship.
