    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Welocalize.

    Phone interview, then interview in person. Two weeks later they will let you know if you're selected or not. Small company but seems to let people go easily. When they are letting someone go, they will have you train that person.

    Interview Questions

    • During the group interview that I was in at the client's site, one of the interviewers told me to tell the group how old I was when I came to the U.S. to live and how long I have lived. As I was the oldest in that group, I was both stunned and upset a little. But I maintained myself cool and lived through it. But they need to learn that asking candidate's age is against the law.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very easy and quick.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Welocalize (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.

    The process is very slow, not recommended if you're in a hurry to pay the bills. It consist on a phone screening done by a recruiter, then a homework, finally you get to go to the workplace for one day and you are reevaluated. Once you pass this three stages you can start. If you change project you have to do the in person evaluation again. The in person interview is paid.

    Software QA Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Welocalize in June 2018.

    Interview

    One recruiter mailed me about a position on software engineer. We talked and she told me software engineer position was not available, and offered some other positions I choosed the computational linguist. But at the end another recruiter talked to me and told me I applied for software qa engineer. I've gone through one interview by recruiter, written a paragraph to prove my written language skills, another phone interview to prove my verbal language skills, and the whole interview is in another language for another language skill assessment. I believed that I failed the interview for SOFTWARE QA ENGINEER, because I'm not localized enough, they require a person that can not only speak/write, also have to know the local culture.

    Software QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Welocalize (Portland, OR) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter from Seattle area, for a contract-to-hire job. Talked to the boss in Portland he was fine, seemed to think I might fit. THEN scheduled me to come in and "work" for half a day (without using the recruiter, which would be expected) THEN I experienced my worst job-related day ever as the horrible mean-spritied QA guy made me squirm as much as possible as he expected me to know a bunch of stuff that I didn't. I wanted to physically assault him and the boss. I certainly hope he experiences nothing but pain. They suck for doing this and so does the evil, slimy recruiter.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Welocalize (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Before the phone interview, I had to fill out a questionnaire about my language skills and IT skills. During the phone interview, the interviewer mainly told about the position and didn't ask a lot of questions. After the phone call, I had to make a test at home. After successfully completing it, I was invited to do an assessment onsite. During the process, the interviewers were nice and they were happy to answer any questions.
