When interviewing for a position in the newsroom expect to have a lot of interviews. It's typical for the company to move slow (I was three months from application to hire and everyone at the time commented that that was quick). You'll talk to potential team members and managers of adjacent teams, and at least one person on the masthead.

Everyone's hiring experience might differ from the next. When going through a hiring agency, the process could be considered seamless. The interview is setup for you. Once the interview is conducted, in most cases, there is a waiting period. In my case, I was hired on the spot. A medical screening is conducted upon final job placement.
