    Production Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at FOX News (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    A coordinator reached out to my email asking if I would meet with the EP of a Fox Business show. I met with her and it went well, she was a delight and seemed genuinely interested in my experience and interests.

    After a few days she set up a meeting with the VPs of Fox Business. That meeting went incredibly worse, as one VP proceeded to immediately make fun of one of my past employers and then crack sexist jokes. The other VP seemed uncomfortable, but did not comment on his partner's inappropriate manner. They then grilled me on why I wanted to switch from comedy to news, but I was still very taken aback by the previous comments and language.

    They said they would have an answer for me by the end of the week. When I didn't hear back after a week, I reached out to the EP, who told me they decided they weren't going to hire any time soon. I then learned from an inside source that they did in fact hire someone for the position.

    It was, overall, a confusing and awkward process rank in unprofessionalism.

    They were very gracious in the many interviews with people on the show. I really like the good cop and bad cop routine they do to test your knowledge

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FOX News (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    One way video interview that flashed questions on screen and gave very brief period to answer. Could not go back and redo my responses. Be sure to know the company and be prepared for general interview questions. They do not follow up and will contact if interested. I'm still waiting.... Would prefer the let me know either way. No way to reach HR offices to follow up.

    Associate Producer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at FOX News.

    Interview

    My conversation with the department went really well. I clicked with the department. We had a great conversation. They were clear with their process and what they were looking for in an associate producer. In return my experience fit the position. I took the current events quiz and talked to recruiting. I eventually asked about pay and they wanted to pay 15$ an hour. I got paid more at a smaller market previously. After trying to negotiate with no avail. I said "No thank you" and walked out. That pay was not worth me producing their politics. If they wanted talent they need to pay for it. Someone else thought so and I thankfully work somewhere else.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at FOX News.

    Interview

    I was referred to this position through a friend of an employee that works there. I submitted an application and a few wks later was asked to do a video interview. I took less than 5 mins. Then a week later they email me about setting up a phone interview. That was less than 10 mins long. Pretty basic, easy questions. Then a few days later they tell me to fill out an application. A wk and a half after that they offered me the position!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FOX News in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the internship at FOX through their website. About two weeks later, I was sent a prompt to complete a webcam interview within a week. The interview asked two questions and you had 1 minute to prepare and 2 minutes to answer. After I sent that in, I had a phone interview and was asked basically the same questions. I did not receive an offer after that.
