Interview Details

Phone interview was brief, basic quesions about yourself and whether or not you are interested in the Project Coordinator position, nothing out of the ordinary. Afterwards they typically send an editing assessment assignment.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at TransPerfect.

    Interview Details

    My first contact as with a representative at my college fair. 6 months later I was contact by them saying that they wanted to schedule a phone interview. Once the time of the interview came along they forgot to call me and then ignore all my emails. Awful experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at TransPerfect.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, then an in-home 2-hour "final eye" test for formatting and grammatical errors. After passing the test, they asked for an in-person interview in their Manhattan office where I was then asked to take another 1-hour test similar to the first. After the test, I met with the specific department heads I would be working with if offered the position.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions seemed like general interview questions. They really focused on how I would fit in the fast-paced environment of the company.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Salary is fixed, with a small increase after training. They give this information during the phone interview. Negotiating the start date seemed possible.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at TransPerfect.

    Interview Details

    I met the representative at the college career fair and then they emailed me to schedule an interview. They called and asked me about 10 questions. Most of them were expected and normal interview questions. Not much

    Interview Details

    Phone Interview. Took about 10 minutes. Standard questions. Why Transperfect? Why this job? Asked about most recent experience. What was most rewarding on resume? I read that most people got a test after the phone call. I did not but i am also not expecting to hear back from them.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at TransPerfect in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I sent in my resume and was followed up by e-mail by someone in HR. Had a phone interview, and then a follow-up interview at their location with the HR person, as well as two project managers. In between the phone interview and follow-up interview, there was a copy test where I had to identify any grammatical errors in translated documents.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions aren't really difficult, but the one that I felt a little uneasy about was how I see myself in their team only because it led to some follow-up questions that were a little bit harder to answer based on the one that I gave.   Answer Question

    Questions were all normal interview questions, nothing too difficult. Why you are interested in the job, what do you know of the company, what are your long term goals, what appeals to you about the job, and so forth.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at TransPerfect.

    Interview Details

    Initially found listing and applied via TransPerfect's own careers site, plus Monster.com. After about 1.5 weeks, got an e-mail about setting up an initial phone screen. Had a 15-minute phone screen that went well--very standard, nothing tricky. (Summarize your past experience. Which of your past experiences was most rewarding and why? Which of your past experiences was most difficult and what did you do to overcome it?)

    The person I spoke with was very pleasant and professional, but because of all that I had heard about the toxic workplace culture, and what I had heard from him that seemed to confirm that everyone else's reviews weren't crazy (mostly, the long work hours, juggling 10-20 projects simultaneously, etc.), I decided to forego this opportunity and search elsewhere.

    Otherwise, next steps would have included a 2-hour "final eye" proofreading test, followed by an interview at the NY office. I thought it made more sense to curtail the process now, knowing that I would not take the offer even if I got it.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at TransPerfect.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by human resources for an initial phone interview and skills test. After being told I had passed the skills test, I was brought in for an interview with HR and four different managers within the company. Face-to-face interview lasted four and a half hours in one day. Was told that they would get back to me within a week regarding a job offer.

    Unsure about work environment, hours seemed ridiculous for the pay.
