Mission: To lead the localization industry with technology and innovation driven by our values, integrity, culture and outstanding talent.
The pay and the benefits were great.
It was somewhat difficult to get in contact with the company. The e-mail responses were slow, and sometimes I had to e-mail the person several times to receive a response.
The work was monotone and there wasn't any room for growth or change. However, this was not the fault of Akorbi, but more of a characteristic of the workplace to which I was contracted to. I didn't actually work in an Akorbi office.
Advice to Management
Improve response times.
I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Akorbi in June 2017.
Started with a recruiter following up on an application I submitted for PM working on a virtual basis. After speaking with the recruiter and hearing a salary I liked, I expressed my interest. Recruiter passed on my resume.
In a week or so, I heard back, but the recruiter apologetically asked me to take an online Kolbe personality test. Okay, I said and took 30 minutes to answer the scenarios. So then I didn't hear back for almost a month. Then it was back on, recruiter said, the position was on hold but the hiring process was back on track.
I had a good interview with the head of content, who then set up a second interview with the direct line manager and a director.
The second interview with the hiring manager and director was weird. The director talked slow and began by asking whether I had ever taken part in a behavioral interview. After considerable time-wasting, we got going, but it was never clear what they wanted to hear.
They kept asking about how I would handle errors, three or four times. They must make a lot of mistakes! Why would anyone want to join an organization so focused on errors? Focus on your strengths.
Negative vibe from org. They are not a very developed or mature company in the business. Had trouble explaining how they manage quality control, which is an ABC of project management in language services.
