    Interview

    All online. They send you a massive set of guidelines and then test you on it. It's not easy. The process of getting hired can take several months, and nobody will update you on anything.

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Leapforce.

    Interview

    You take a theoretical and practical test. You have to wait to hear back. Contrary to many jobs, the interview is impersonal. You do not get brownie points by being nice or intelligent or experienced. They screen people based on the test scores alone. However, if you are polite and show some aptitude, they will let you reapply. Sometimes your response will depend on who writes you back. Persistence pays.

    Interview Questions

    • They don't ask you anything directly. You take your own time to complete the exams.   Answer Question

    No real interview, just tests. You study some guidelines, then take a 3 part exam. You have a week to finish it. If you fail, I think you get an opportunity to retake it.

    Search Engine Evaluator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Leapforce (Detroit, MI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First you have to apply, and then they'll send you some electronic documents to sign if they're interested. Mostly this is to confirm that you'll be an independent contractor, in charge of paying your own taxes, but there's quite a bit of fine print. I advise reading it prior to signing it.

    Once you sign all of that, you're scheduled an exam date, and provided a link to the manual to read prior to the exam. It's 157 pages. My exam was set for two days after I was provided the manual; then, you have a week to complete the three-part exam. You must pass each part before gaining access to the next part. The first part is a 32 question theoretical exam based on the manual. The second part is a practical exam that tests your ability to properly judge the quality of 8 (or so) different webpages. The third part is another practical, this time you have to send the links to your smartphone and view them on there, and then make a judgment regarding both the needs-met and the quality of the page.

    I probably spent a total of 10-12 hours on the exam. After that I was told that I failed the third portion, and sorry but I didn't get the job.

    I was surprised, given that I have Master of Science degree. I guess they don't feel I'm qualified to determine whether a search result meets the needs of a user's search query. I must admit I am now somewhat skeptical of this company. I've worked with other companies for online part-time work, and had a much better experience. And, you know, actually got paid for the work I completed, instead of spending 10-12 hours doing work and receiving nothing.

    Easy - no interview. There is no interview at all. You send an email they send you the link to start, that's it. Then you take a test and that could be considered an interview, I guess.

    Search Engine Evaluator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Leapforce (Miami, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    No paid training, you have to read more than 100 pages before taking any tests. You never get to speak to anyone over the phone if you have questions. You spend more time reading than evaluating & rating. Only thing positive is most of the questions are common sense and they are very easy if you have a web design or SEO background, but not worth the time/effort.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Leapforce.

    Interview

    There was no real interview. I submitted my application and resume on November 15, and heard back from Leapforce within a few hours. On Nov 19, they emailed me again, informing me that I had passed the initial qualification phase, and they invited me to continue with the qualification process. I then logged on and took what I can best describe as a basic skills test, and was assigned a project. On Nov 20th I received another email with a beginning date for my exam (Nov 21) and a link to study materials for the upcoming (3 part) exam. This manual is 160 pages and if you want to stand any chance of passing the qualification exam, you will read it in it's entirety, and you might want to take notes! I was given a window of 6 days to study the guide, and complete the exam. The test is broken into 3 phases, and you must pass each phase in order to gain access to the next phase. You are allowed to use the study guide during the exam, but trust me, if you do not read the materials and have a basic understanding of them before you take the tests, you will likely fail. If you do read the materials the test can still be challenging, but you'll know where to look in the guide to quickly refresh your memory during the test. I signed in to take the test on the evening of the last day that I could take it. That was a mistake! The tests are very lengthy, and although I finished in time, it was a very close call. I finished the 3rd section within minutes of the deadline which was November 28th at 12:00 am PST. On December 1st, Leapforce emailed me telling me that I had passed the 3rd part of the exam, and they offered me a contract. So, overall from application to offer was just over 2 weeks.

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. There is a set hourly rate at which everyone starts, depending on the project you select/are assigned to. For me, $13.50/hr to start. I can not yet confirm this, but my understanding is that if you make it through your first 6 months with good evaluations, you may receive an increase to over $17.00/hr.
