    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Data Recognition Corporation in March 2014.

    Interview

    Answered ad in newspaper. Showed up for group info session. I was told to complete a few questions for reading comprehension, write a short paragraph on a topic provided and answer four math questions. I was then interviewed by a woman from the MN office. Mostly general questions about working in close proximity to others, handling feedback, availability, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • The mini test/quiz threw me because it was different from other interviews. The question about how well can you work sitting next to others was kind of weird.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    • Can you put aside your education and bias to grade answers to questions that have to meet standardized responses you may disagree with?   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Data Recognition Corporation (Austin, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • Honestly, there was nothing you couldn't answer easily off the cuff, this is not applying to Harvard.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Hourly wages are non-negotiable.
