    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gleim Publications (Gainesville, FL).

    Interview

    Applied online for the job though their website. A week later I was contacted through email to schedule a date for the quality assessment test. After completing their quality assessment, later that evening links for the backend and frontend programming test was administered. This is not a general programming test! It's mostly Php, Javascript and SQL then some object oriented principles. I didn't know these languages but you apply oop to figure some of them out. A week later I was then called in for an interview with hr, managers and owner. Mostly non technical questions are asked about your skillset and what you expect.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gleim Publications in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. About a day later, I received an email asking to come in and take an assessment of my skills. There were three parts. The first was a five minute typing test you can take three times. The second was a web based assessment of finding errors on a quiz. The third was a general proofreading and basic spelling test. This took me around two hours to complete. I had a pleasant time doing these tests, to be honest. I was told that once they were finished grading my results, I would be called to be told of the next step. A month later, and it is safe to say that they probably will not me calling, which is unfortunate. I was truly interested in the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gleim Publications (Gainesville, FL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Speak with HR on the phone. Schedule a few hours to take a quality control (detail oriented) test, general programming test, and optionally a Java test. Speak with HR. Speak with IT Manager, non-technical. They hire many students, so there's no room for negotiation. You start out with a 60 day trial period, after which time they decided to keep or dismiss you; I've heard only a few people have ever been terminated.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gleim Publications (Gainesville, FL) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted to schedule and sit for an assessment. The results of my assessment was a request for a second interview where I met the head of sales. The questions were centered around my customer service instincts and how I would hypothetically close sales. At the time it seemed like they wanted me to succeed and almost led me on questions. I was really inexperienced so needless to say, being courteous and willing to learn went a long way.

    I began training for a sales position within a week.
