    This was through my school and they vetted the candidates for ABC, as well as interviewed the students for them.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ABC News (New York, NY) in July 2010.

    Interview

    They did not provide travel/accomodations for the interview. The skills test took about 1.5 hours and actual one-on-one interview about 30 minutes. The recruiter was friendly, but the person I interviewed with was less approachable. Basically, they did not seem friendly and I did not have a good vibe from the place.
