    One of the longest interviews I've had. Very in-depth and technical interview process. Very disappointed, however, that even after investing time in attending a number of interviews, they do not contact you to say yes or no.

    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dhaka (Bangladesh)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dhaka (Bangladesh)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Freelancer in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    There is a clear hiring and interview process on that employment. At first people post a job on the web site to find a better and cheaper contractor . I usually bid on the web development job. Then they choose from a bunch of contractors like me. They make a short list. Than call for an interview. When they find the right guy. They hire. Here I always prefer to present me as a confident and well understood person and make my lower possible price to win the job.
