I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Data Recognition Corporation in April 2009.

Interview Details – Initial contact usually through referral. They also advertise in January and February. They call you for an interview and have you score a sample test on computer. Then let you know if you are hired. Only requirement is a college degree. for the first, they do not guarantee anny work. After that, if your work is acceptable, they generally contact you early in teh year with a schedule, then let you know when your first project is.

Interview Question – I did not find any questions difficult.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. They hire you or not and have a fixed salary to start. It tends to go up slightly every year. Some people get promoted to team leader and eventually scoring director. they do not share what the criteria is.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Data Recognition Corporation in April 2013.

Interview Details – Come in to the office, listen to a presentation, and take two written assessments. One is a pre-algebra level math test, and the other is a writing sample, my prompt was "describe your best achievement in the last two years". After turning in your assessments, you talk one on one with the HR rep for a short (10 minute) interview where she basically wants to see if you will be comfortable with the close quarters of the working environment, the repetition and monotony of grading, and if you can be consistently impartial. If you're smart you just say yes.

Interview Question – Honestly, there was nothing you couldn't answer easily off the cuff, this is not applying to Harvard.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Hourly wages are non-negotiable.

For the hiring event, you have to bring a diploma or transcripts. Only those with college degrees can apply. At first, we took a skills test on high school level math and writing. After that, we had a somewhat quick one-on-one interview.
