    SharePoint Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Educational Testing Service (Princeton, NJ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was about 2 hours 15 minutes. I was communicated about the lengthy duration beforehand. Started with review of benefits and company structure. Then technical interview. Technical interview involved going through resume and related questions. This was followed by two hands-on excercises related to .Net and SharePoint programming. Not tough, very simple; I believe they were looking as to how I approached and solved it.

    Rater Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Educational Testing Service.

    Interview

    There's no interview for a rater/scoring position. I applied to be an at-home rater on their website and was invited to complete an assessment two months later. I passed the assessment and I was hired. I never spoke to a human on the phone or via email; the process was all automated. This was rather confusing because I wasn't sure how scheduling worked and I had a number of questions. Eventually I figured everything out, but I missed the potential to be scheduled more hours because of this issue. There is a severe lack of communications between ETS and their scorers both during scoring season and during the offseason.

    Interview Questions

    • None - There was no official interview. I had to complete an assessment (qualifying exam) online when my application was accepted.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Educational Testing Service (Tampa, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    There was not a phone interview or a face to face interview for this position. Everything was done on the internet. There was a small skills verification, and then you posted your resume. They reviewed my qualifications, which they required a bachelor's degree or higher for the position. After they reviewed everything, they proceeded with a background check and then you filled out your I-9. Easy Peasy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Educational Testing Service (Princeton, NJ).

    Interview

    Group panel interview was not my ideal situation. It was my first time interviewing with more than one person at a time and it was quite intense for me. After some time I was more comfortable and was able to focus on the answers I was providing. Everyone was very nice and pleasant. I was told during the interview with HR that I would hear about an offer (if I was offered) within a week...I got a call the following day with an offer and I accepted.

    Test Rater Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Elgin, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I interviewed at Educational Testing Service (Elgin, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was allegedly hired in May and told if I came on by June, which I intended to do, I’d get a $100.00 bonus. Then THEY delayed me so I was too late for it. When I finally got the tech advice I needed to complete the training process, I was told it was too late for the June season, and I had to wait till Oct. Now I’ve read, after going through multiple hiring steps, that I may not have any work even then. And when I went through their dozen or more steps to start the training, I had many tech problems. When I called their tech line, I talked to a woman who had several pauses in the conversation, making me ask often, “Are you still there?” At the end of the call, when I followed her advice, I got an “Access forbidden” message on their website. I’ve given up!! If their technology is that bad for people who want to be trained, what will it be like for employees, or getting your pay??
    STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE, unless you like being treated like last week’s garbage.

    Interview Questions

    • Mgmt: Respect people enough to have honest job advertising. Be up front about the unpredictable hours and that it is ONLY part-time. Don't hire people who have spent hours jumping through your hoops and then have no work for them. This is very disrespectful!! What a rude waste of people’s time!! What makes you think that’s ok?   Answer Question
