    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Scripps.

    Interview

    I loved the process. A recruiter reached out to me. We had a phone interview. Then I had an interview with the local manager. Then I interviewed with their manager and that person's manager. But every step felt good. There was also a video interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Scripps in January 2014.

    Interview

    I received a call from HR asking me about my salary requirements then I was told I would be receiving a link to do a video interview. This is a web based program so you are not even speaking to a person. It was very impersonal in my opinion. I am not relocating. This is a local job. Video interviews should be used for long distance candidates. I think companies have forgotten that interviewing is a 2-way street.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Scripps.

    Interview

    Slow but thorough and extremely professional. The company conducts thorough background, verification and drug screening. They are very professional but the hiring process is slow. Expect at least six weeks from the time you are first contacted for a phone screen to actual offer and start date.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Scripps (Bakersfield, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    It probably took about a couple to a few months after I put in my application to get a phone call. The interview was pretty through: They asked me all the general questions and explained the work environment at the station. Then they showed me a number of commercials spots and asked me what my opinion was on them regarding how they were filmed, edited, and scripted. Then they tested my Spanish skills to see if I could actually translate a script into Spanish. The interview took about an hour and half.

    Interview Questions

    • When they tested my knowledge of video production and my Spanish skills   1 Answer
