    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at FOX News (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The whole process took three months. Had 3 rounds of interviews. Very easy but long process due to everyone's busy schedule. Average interview questions. I would advise to know some names of on-air talent and why you want to work at fox news.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at FOX News.

    Interview

    The process was from October to end March. I applied online for the college program in DC and New York. I had an on campus interview with a younger man because the woman who was in charge over scheduled interviews and needed help. Interview with him was very easy, said I clearly knew the company and we talked about my Media Literacy class. Interview ended and said since I was only a freshman I may be an alternate because they rarely take Freshman, but he liked me and if I didn't get it to apply again. Said I would hear back in a couple weeks or up until April. Then in December I was contacted for a phone interview with the woman who is in charge of all of it. She called earlier than she originally said and just asked if I was still interested in Fox and which location I would prefer. Said I would be given a yes or no by the end of January. On December 29th she emailed me paper work to fill out for the company to become an employee. Did not hear anything back for a couple of months after even when I reached out. At the end of march I was emailed I did not get it. I am not bitter, I will apply next year. They just have a big applicant pool and seems like they do not hire younger kids normally.

    Interview

    I applied for the production assistant position and in 2 weeks to the day I was sitting in the New York office for an interview. The HR woman emailed me asking me what my availability was and my time worked. At the interview I met with the HR woman who then passed me off to my future potential boss who showed me around the office and asked me some basic questions. They also gave me a quiz packet about current events.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FOX News (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Went on three interviews for PA in three different departments. The moment you sit down is the moment they decide if they will hire you or not. The interviews felt rushed. Also, you have to take a current events test so be prepared. One of the interviewers didn't even know the answers to some of the questions on the current evens test.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at FOX News.

    Interview

    The phone interview was pretty straight forward. It lasted about 15 minutes long, with questions ranging from my academic background to my professional career goals. The interview request came about two weeks after I initially applied. Personally, the interview felt a bit rushed and I didn't really feel any personal connection with the interviewer.
