    Digital Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NY Daily News (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Deceptively easy, and not very accurate. On in-person interview. Said they called references. Main problem was that I was hired by "the old regime" and was deemed "not a good fit" by the new regime. Hiring mangager was fired a few months after hiring me.

    Negotiation

    They made a very generous offer. I took it.

    Online Photo Gallery Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NY Daily News (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an online editor about an interview. This editor, or other managers obviously didn't review my application very carefully (kind of a big red flag for a "news" organization) because they wanted me to come into the office for an interview. I do not live in the city (NYC), in fact I live over 800 miles away (which they would have known had they reviewed my application and resume). When I emailed the woman to correct her mistake, and ask if instead I could do a phone/skype interview instead, I never got a response. Never ever heard from them again. I felt the entire experience was extremely unprofessional. It only takes two seconds to write a response retracting an offer due to location, and I did not understand why I wasn't shown that courtesy. I was very put off by the way this manager handled this situation.

    Freelane Writer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NY Daily News (New York, NY) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was brief and to the point and allowed me to expound on my areas of interest as far as a beat and topics that I was interested in covering. It also gave insight about the scope of the job and the vagaries involved in completing freelance assignments.

    Photo Gallery Editor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NY Daily News (New York, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I was interviewed in December 2014 for a Photo Gallery Editor position at the New York City office. The interview was conducted by the manager of the gallery team, who had clearly taken the time to go over my resume and asked how my previous experiences would make me a suitable candidate. Unfortunately, I did not get the position but I did receive thoughtful feedback from the manager in follow-up emails which I appreciated, and believe assisted me in my job search.
