    Associate Producer Interview

    Interview

    You have to fill out a current events test that asks specific questions about things that are going on. Local and national questions count, also be aware of local geography and major landmarks. There was also a writing test. I had to write two VOs and two VOSOTs and a tease for each of them.

    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 was notified two days before about an interview in NY, where I do not live. But I made the effort and went in knowing a physical interview would be better. Interview was fairly easy and there is a test, know your U.S. political system.

    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.
