    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Digital Manga.

    Interview

    They'll schedule an interview via email. All they want to hear is you being positive and you'll get the job. The pay is minuscule though, way below the market average.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I kept trying to negotiate for the standard industry wage and they kept low-balling me. In hindsight, I wish I never accepted.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Digital Manga (Gardena, CA).

    Interview

    Called in by the Vice President. I got there, and the CEO conducted the interview, and the Vice President glared at me the whole time. The CEO was very pleasant, and because of all the experiences I had, he promised a lot of work for me and big projects he was looking into such as product design. I got the contract with promise of Health and other benefits. I got these benefits 6 months after my starting date. Also got 2 pay cuts within the year, and health and benefits were removed.

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation. They'll throw in promises, but never keep them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Digital Manga.

    Interview

    It was fairly short process. They responded within a week, and the interview process happens very quickly. Less than an hour. First you're required to read over paper work and then they will ask you about skills and experiences.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any particularly difficult questions. Mostly questions regarding what you can do so that they can gauge where you would fit best into the company.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't really a negotiation phase since it was for an unpaid internship. If you prove yourself valuable to the company, then they'll keep you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Digital Manga (Gardena, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Bait-and-switch job postings to make translators work them for free. Did a free test for them. Then told me the position is no longer available, but I could go to their website where translators do the same job for the position but only get paid by percentages of sales.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked potential candidates to translate a sample test and submit it along with their application for the position.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Applied to a translator position. They asked to submit a short translation test they chose for potential candidates. So I did. Received an email (some newsletter format for their free translators) saying they have a staff person already for the position (huh?), but saying they have something I might be interested in (red flag). Odd, their website still lists the position as available. In their email, they promoted a website where they ask translators to do the same job for the position I applied for but do it for free. The translators get paid only by percentages of sales - in other words, a translator don't get paid if no one buys the book. This is a scam.
