    Strategist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Translation (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Personal, easy going, and inquisitive on thought process and perspective. The interview was on the easier side in that we talked about my personal interests, and how I relay that perspective derived from those interests into my work. We also spoke on process and ability to communicate ideas in a clear and concise way, a way that so if I am not there to present my idea anyone else could pick it up, read it and understand it without any further explanation from myself.

    Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Translation.

    Interview

    HR conducted both a phone interview and a 1-on-1 interview. Unclear why HR would bring someone for a 1-on-1 interview with them only. HR asked vague questions - didn't seem to really understand the role they were hiring for.

    HR ignored all follow-up emails, which is pretty standard these days but rude nonetheless.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Translation in September 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted through my recruiter about an open position they had effective immediately. They looked at my portfolio through my recruiter and asked me to start working immediately. I did not speak to anyone at the company prior to my arrival, and the first hour of my day was spent speaking with HR and filling out tax forms rather than getting immediately to work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Translation (New York, NY) in July 2012.

    Interview

    As I was fairly entry level at the time, the questions were pretty basic. My experience at the time was limited to paid search and biddable so I didn't have much in the way of branding experience. I was very unfamiliar with a lot of the questions and type of work they did at Translation. I thought the interview process was very fair, but I just didn't have the experience to translate (no pun intended) into success within the interview.
