    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Freelancer (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Being hired at freelancer takes about 2 - 3 hrs after applying for a job(if you were lucky)
    The clients ask you questions regarding the project and how you will tackle it. If you fail to convince the client that you are fit to work for them then you are ruled out.

    Some 'bad' clients approach you to discuss job and then disappear for days, leaving you hanging.
    This has happened to me a couple of times.

    Interview Questions

    • Q. When will you complete this work?   2 Answers
    • Q. What makes you think you are fit for this job.   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    I had a moment when a client did not acknowledge my expertise so I had to spent a lot of time convincing him.

    My advice: If a client takes your time by asking you non-related questions, call it a day and move on.
