    Research Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Educational Testing Service.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very casual and made you feel comfortable. There were about 3 people on the line who asked questions. They asked questions like "Tell me about yourself, what do you know about ETS, why should we hire you, and etc. As the interview continued, they asked questions pertaining to my resume and research that I've done in the past. At first I was very nervous, but with time and as the interview progressed the interviewers made you feel very comfortable. Prep, ask yourself questions and do your research on the organization.

    TOEFLiBT Rater Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Educational Testing Service.

    Interview Details

    There is no interview. The hiring process is done entirely online - ETS will send you documents to digitally read and sign, and you will have to pass a certification test after reading/watching a tutorial. You will then have a guided/mentored scoring session, where your work will be closely monitored and you will be carefully advised. Every four hours of every shift you will also have to calibrate, a little five-question check to make sure that you're aware of the parameters of different scores, and you are subject to random checks throughout your shifts, just to make sure that you keep scoring accurately, and your superiors will provide feedback to keep you on track. The inital phase of hiring does take quite some time, though - they take their sweet time sending out and verifying documents.

    Interview Questions
    • The first time you score is pretty stressful, especially since you feel like, if you get it wrong, you won't pass certification and will lose the job.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. I didn't even know what my salary would be until I was already working for them. It's all very opaque.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Educational Testing Service.

    Interview Details

    HR (known as SWS here) is part of the interview process even though most of those people have no clue what the day-to-day job entails. The hiring process is not always fair and depends a lot on personal gut reactions and minutia.
