    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ABC News in August 2016.

    Interview

    I got an e-mail from the HR and arranged a time-slot for the telephone interview. At the time, I was abroad in another country, but things worked out well and the HR person called me internationally. The interview lasted about 20-30minutes. After 3 weeks, I received another e-mail from the team that I will be working with. I think they were originally supposed to see me in person, but they were running tight on schedule in hiring so I had another telephone interview. I again, engaged in a phone interview with two people, a production assistant and an associate senior producer form the team. The interview lasted about 30 minutes, but mostly they explained the job that I will be doing and about the team.

    Interview

    I applied online through the Disney Career page and I heard back about 2 weeks later from an HR rep. The HR rep conducted a phone interview which was pretty straight forward, mostly about your experience. Then one day later I heard back from the HR rep about coming in for an in person interview. That interview was a little more difficult but still not too bad, more questions about the show than about myself. I was offered the position that night.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ABC News (Atlanta, GA (US)).

    Interview

    Typical questions. Your experience in news production must be fully explained and how that aligns specifically with ABC News mixed with scenario type questions. In my opinion personality is the determining factor. You must mesh well, you'll be doing a lot of communicating.

    Interview

    The interview process was easy, meeting with the higher ups is fun and casual, the last interview gives you a quiz so be prepared to sit and take a test on general knowledge of News and Sports. This is a fill in the blank. You need to know everything from current events to airport codes to sports teams and cities.
