    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Welocalize (Fremont, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Very easy process as long as you are a native speaker of the desired language. I applied via LinkedIn and received an email days later to do an online task. It was really just answering a simple question in my language to see my language skill. Then I received call from their language manager. We chatted casually so that she could have an idea about my oral language skill as well. Then I got the job.

    I was contacted by a recruiter via email and had a brief phone call the same day. The interview took about 15-20 minutes. After the interview I submitted a short writing sample in my native language. The next step was a phone call to further evaluate my native language skills. Both interviews were pleasant and very straightforward - no behavioral interview questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Welocalize.

    Interview

    I applied online on their website. I was contacted within a few days to schedule a phone interview. Before the interview, I was asked to fill out a simple questionnaire about myself.
    The phone call was very relaxed. The recruiter answered all my questions about hours, salary, benefits.
    Next step was to pass a language test that included proofreading, translating, editing, and composing.
    The last step, if the client asks for it, is to go onsite for a morning try out.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Welocalize (Cupertino, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process for this position is unusual. First, you'll get called by a recruiter. Be prepared for a very lengthy sales pitch. Most of the information given in the initial call is excessive. The recruiter shows you a few things during the call and asks you to correct them. Then after that, you get sent an NDA and a linguistic test in various Excel documents. The instructions are vague, misleading and unclear. If you ask for more instructions or clarity, you'll get a canned response from the recruiter. You basically have to get a passing grade on the test in order to move on to the next step, which is a paid try-out day on-site at the client. I found the process to be very frustrating and wouldn't recommend it to others.

    Interview Questions

    • No real specific interview questions to speak of. It's more of a sales pitch.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Welocalize.

    Interview

    Had first 2 interviews with Apple Production Designers and then they said I would get a call from WeLocalize to be notified if I got the job. Needless to say I was a bit surprised when the WeLocalize HR Manager called and finally said, "you will be a WeLocalize employee, not an Apple employee". They wanted my final answer to the job offer on the phone which was caught me off guard as well.
