    Clerical Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ewing, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Educational Testing Service (Ewing, NJ) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I drove 45 minutes just to find out they rescheduled open house. I received no such notice via email or phone only a note on the door when I got there. I came back again a second time, and they said they couldn't find my application (which took almost an hour to fill out) and that the person who referred me doesn't even work at the specific site. They had no communication at all with the recruiter who reached out to me. I sat waiting for more then 3 hours just to be told that they aren't hiring anyone else. The manager was rude and sarcastic and told me to come back next week, so I picked up my stuff and left.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Educational Testing Service (Princeton, NJ) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Interviewed for a contract (audition) position. Campus is beautiful although building I interviewed in was a little run down. They have an n house recruiter from Adecco. She was nice enough. At least she called to advise they chose another candidate. This has become very rare with recruiters. Usually just silence from them if they don't want you.

    Interview Questions

    • No real Q&A. Had a nice conversation with two older directors. both with the company for many (Many!) years. As an older White guy, I thought i had a chance, but as with most companies these days, "Older white men need not apply"!   Answer Question

    Interview

    They acted very strange and cloak and dagger about the whole thing. I just submitted my resume. After a while, I certified for rating some tests. I can't talk about it because I signed a NDA.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Educational Testing Service.

    Interview

    Filled out a large amount of documents. Was approved and given opportunity to train and score. So, employment was based via review of resume, possibly my own personal SAT scores, background check etc. and then was offered opportunity to train. After training you are given two opportunities to prove your proficiency and if you fail, you're fired. But you will be paid for that time training at least.

    Interview Questions

    • Hire was strictly performance -based, based on training   1 Answer

    Rater Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    Applied online. Uploaded resume. Pay is absolute garbage and does not take into consideration teaching experience (whether it's 1 year or 100). $13/hr for grading, training $11/hr. Good if you have no standards for remote work, but I didn't slave in a classroom for 5 years with stinky teenagers for nothing. Overseas companies looking for graders pay a lot more.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Educational Testing Service.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions. The certification test requires understanding the grading rubric.   Answer Question
