    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at About in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted from a recruiter and had a 30 minute screening interview. First I was asked to talk about my background and then asked some screening questions. After he asked me to walk through some code in my project. I did and the interviewer said that he did not have a technical background so he did not really understand what I was explaining.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at About in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a freelancing writing position and was almost immediately received a response from a recruiter. He scheduled an editing test for me, which I took. The test itself was not very difficult but I didn't really grasped what they truly wanted. After all, it was just a freelancing position. Received a response a day later, saying they will not be moving forward with my application. This was all done online, so there was no physical interaction at all.
