I worked at CNN-IBN full-time
Interesting, get touch with a lot of infos.
Stressful, don't have much spare time.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CNN-IBN (Noida (India)).
Hiring process in production department of CNN-IBN is mostly internal, or sometimes resumes screened by the HR.
Hiring is purely on the basis of past experience in TV channels and the various shows that one has handled. There is no written examination. Candidate is selected by the HoD on his personal discretion.
Regarding salary structure, its all pre-decided. There's hardly that anyone can negotiate.
