Journalist Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at TheStreet in October 2009.
Interview Details – Hiring process was long, but not difficult. You will interview with editors, not HR, which is good, unlike some other news companies that make you interview with clueless HR people before even speaking to an editor. Also, does not make you take some lame reporting test which wastes time, like Bloomberg and the rest. You just sit and talk to editors and if you interview well and have skills as financial journalist or master's in journalism and interest in financial news...
Interview Question – None in particular. Difficulty is in getting this company to move on making hires. Not financially stable. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Company is not financially secure and hasn't had profits in some time, therefore, negotiation was short. I rejected lowball offer, they raised, but not by significant amount for a NY City job. No great benefits or bonuses to be had for newsroom staff as far as I know given current financial difficulties for company. They sometimes offer very small bonuses and stock options were offered by new CEO, but these options are WAY underwater (ie not even close to being worth even one cent to an employee at present).
Summer Intern Position Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)

Editor Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at TheStreet in June 2010.
Interview Details – A brief phoen interview, followed by an in-office interview with one manager, then a one on two interview with two managers.
