    Media Reviewer-Linguistic Tester Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Welocalize (San Jose, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The interview itself was easy, because it all comes down to the native language test that I was given in Excel format. Via Skype they explain you very well what to do watch out for. You return the test and after you pass, you will have another call to prepare you for the on-site test. Once you pass that as well you are invited to a 3 day trial. If all goes well you will be officially hired if they have current positions open.

    Interview

    At first the interview was going well, but later on I found out the HR representative was not very good at his/her job and needed constant reminder (more than once) to send me fines and update on the progress, which I think turned her off.
