    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Patch.

    Interview Details

    It was a very casual but a thorough interview. Questions were generally about practical reporting skills such as "How would you go about covering a break-in at a local store? Who would you speak with? What is the most important information?" The company was a start-up expanding across the country very quickly. Later interviews became more detailed and included interviews with several different staff members.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Patch.
