    Captioning Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CapTel in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was given a short phone interview before they asked to come in for a 1 on 1.

    You're given a series of test to see whether or not you can handle the task required to do the job. Spelling, reading, typing, and most importantly, re-voicing. Each test is simple; a high school graduate should have no problem whatsoever. Although the spelling test does have a few tricky words.

    I'd advise people to practice your typing skills before the interview. The typing test requires you to listen to audio and type out what you hear. A pedal is used to pause the audio after a few words so that you have time to type. You are timed and are graded based on your accuracy. You must be able to type at least 35 WPM with less than a 5% error rate.

    The re-voicing is the most difficult test as most people aren't used to mimicking what you hear verbatim. Any error you make means automatic failure. You have to repeat 2 test in a row with 100% accuracy in order to pass.

    If you fail either the typing or re-voicing test, you are given a chance to re-test if you do well enough on the others. Otherwise, you are offered the job on the spot. You're recommended to take at least a week to practice before you re-test.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult to answer. You'll be asked about your strengths and weaknesses; about your prior jobs; what your former employers would say or think about you; how you found out about CapTel...etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation as far as wages. It's $9 an hour on weekdays and gets bumped up to $10 if you work Saturday or Sunday. You are asked to select a preferred shift and which weekend day you are willing to work on (you must select one, no exceptions).
