Video Editor/Producer Interview

Video Editor/Producer
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at FOX News.

Interview Details – I was contacted a few weeks after applying, and was contacted by a recruiter for Fox News. We set up an interview, and I met with the recruiter and then the department head. Everyone was very friendly and professional. We had our interview, was given a tour, and everything went smoothly. As the position required some writing, I was given an assignment which I completed on time. Unfortunately, I was not chosen for the position, as an internal candidate was hired. It took about a month to hear back. The experience was fine, even though I didn't get the job. I don't have any major complaints.

Interview Question – I was asked by the recruiter, "Which Fox News anchor do you feel is 'fair and balanced'?"   Answer Question

Lead Product Manager Interview

Lead Product Manager
New York, NY

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at FOX News in January 2014.

Interview Details – Typical interviews with peers, manager, and manager's managers, plus one very bizarre ambush by the HR recruiter who had me to stop by to complete paperwork, but then conducted an interview. The interview and the subject matter wasn't unreasonable by any means, but being ambushed with it was. Negotiations were a little unpleasant (perhaps I'm biased since I didn't get what I asked for.

Interview Question – Which of our products do you like?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The people were great, the job would have been fun. But the money was truly terrible and I worry about the harm this brand would do to my CV.
