    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Freelancer (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Being hired at freelancer takes about 2 - 3 hrs after applying for a job(if you were lucky)
    The clients ask you questions regarding the project and how you will tackle it. If you fail to convince the client that you are fit to work for them then you are ruled out.

    Some 'bad' clients approach you to discuss job and then disappear for days, leaving you hanging.
    This has happened to me a couple of times.

    Negotiation

    I had a moment when a client did not acknowledge my expertise so I had to spent a lot of time convincing him.

    My advice: If a client takes your time by asking you non-related questions, call it a day and move on.

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Plaines, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Freelancer (Des Plaines, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It was a good interview, we had to learn what we wanted from each other. I passed the first interview over the phone, then I met the manager in person. It was very last minute. The only problem is they did not want social media as part of their marketing plan, and that is where we did not agree on the same vision. So I knew it was not the place for me.
