    Intern Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Newsy.

    Interview

    I inquired about an internship and was sent an application to fill out. About three weeks later, I was told to fill out a different application. I was contacted for an interview about a month later, and then was offered the internship a week later. They were a pretty new company at the time, so I really don't feel like they had their internship process and program organized very well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Newsy (Columbia, MO) in January 2018.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Newsy (Columbia, MO) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I spoke to one manager, then to another, then a group conversation. Then hired. Altogether it was not a bad experience, and the people I was working with really were very helpful. It's a very young newsroom.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me a question in the interview that was mainly about where I got my news, and I'm just going to type a few more words in to this box and a few more until I hit this word minimum that they give me.   1 Answer

    Video Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbia, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Newsy (Columbia, MO) in September 2014.

    Interview

    It was very casual, not much interviewing at all. You walk into Newsy (which is a super confusing place by the way) and probably don't know where to go. They don't have much of a separate interview space, so it is pretty in the open. They ask not many questions as they seem to have a lot of openings always.

    Video Producer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Newsy (Columbia, MO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very informal interview. I had emailed them asking for any open positions, then they invited me to the office and we had a brief chat about my experience. They basically hired me right there because I had Final Cut Pro experience. Likely it is more official now - they have expanded and gained a reputation very quickly

    Content Producer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Newsy in July 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online in mid June and got an email from an HR representative at the end of July asking for my availability to have a phone interview. The actual phone interview went very well. It was on a Monday and she said that they would make a decision on who would move on to the second round of interviews the following Monday and I should hear back by mid next week.

    After not hearing back that week I emailed her for a follow up and she replied calling me by a completely WRONG NAME in her email (even though I signed it with my name) and said that they were still in phase one of the interviews and had not made a decision about the second round yet.

    Two days later I get a phone call and she left a voicemail (got my name right this time) and said that they decided to move forward with someone who has more experience.

    I think the wrong name in the email was very unprofessional but otherwise it was an okay experience. (To clarify, in the testing portion of this review it listed drug test which would have been a part of the process if I had been selected but I didn't have to take one for my interview.)

    Social Media Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Newsy.

    Interview

    I applied for the role online and was quickly contacted for a phone interview. I gave my availability on the one day the HR rep provided and didn't hear back. After the day of the proposed interview passed, I emailed to follow up and got a new phone interview date. On the phone, the rep was straightforward but cold and ostentatious (when I asked her to repeat herself she grew audibly annoyed). She then told me that they were looking for more experience, which is something that could have been gleaned from my resume. A big waste of time and a bad impression left by the company.
