    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Examiner newspapers.

    Interview Details

    The entire application process was handled online; I was sent an email congratulating me on getting the position within days of applying. All I had to do was send my tax ID over to start. Much of the process seemed to be automated. If you want a sense of belonging to the company, join social media groups started by other writers.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Examiner newspapers in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted almost immediately in January in response to my application. The application included a writing sample and some blurbs about why I was qualified fro the job. I was told I was in, all I needed to do was supply a few more details. I did. Then I continued to try to contact the employee who reached out to me for two months, to no avail. Finally, I sent an email elsewhere in the company. Within a couple days, not only was the process rolling, I was set up and writing.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Examiner newspapers in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Found an ad on Craigslist and responded. Was hired on the next day. Not much of an interview process at the time, but I hear that with the popularity of the publication, they've increased the difficulty to become an examiner.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Examiner newspapers.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by examiner.com after they came across my resume. After talking via email to a hiring representative I then filled in a detailed application and submitted three samples of writing based on the topic I wanted to write about. After a week or so I was contacted and hired based on signing of contracts. Contracts were read carefully and altered, I was able to ask questions on anything I was concerned about or wanted to double check on the contract. The person appointed to handle my employment was very easy to contact and quick to respond to me so the time between sending my application and starting on the actual writing was amazingly short!

    Interview Questions
    • There really wasn't one as the questions asked were common ones when going through the employment process.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I had to wait until I received an actual offer until I found out the salary which was annoying to say the least however as the job itself was and is so flexible, plus the perks to insider knowledge, the money issue at the time did not bother me too much.
