    Pros

    I've been here for several years and Geotext is a great company to work for! We still have that small company feel which invites us to be a tightly knit community. It's a fun and collaborative environment that resonates in all offices. Thinking outside the box is encouraged and at times you work and collaborate directly with the CEO on larger projects and ideas. Geotext is very loyal and treats their hard-working employees very well!

    Client Service Director Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Geotext Translations (New York, NY).

    Interview

    A few weeks after applying, I was contacted for a phone screening. They called about 30 minutes earlier than scheduled and asked pretty standard questions. After the call, I was contacted by HR to set up an in-person interview a week or so later. At the office, I met with somebody from the company and was given a skills test (~45 minutes) as a gauge of how I would perform the work for the position. Upon completion, I was told I would be contacted with the results. I sent a follow-up thank you the following day and I communicated back and forth over the weekend with the person I met. The hours I applied for were apparently not available (despite being listed on their website) and I was requested to work a different shift. I kept on with it, and I had a second in-person interview where I met with several new people. I followed up with them the following day as well, but received no replies. I was eventually contacted by HR, who requested three references, one of which would have to be a written letter emailed to HR (because of my personal circumstances). This process took forever (in part because some of my references were initially unavailable), but I was ultimately contacted about a month later asking if I was still interested. I declined, as other opportunities had arisen in that time. I had been told during my first in-person interview that they would try to make the hiring process quick, but it dragged on for several months. The reference requirements seemed a bit demanding considering it was a relatively low level position. The several interviews, during which I was never informed of anything regarding compensation/benefits/etc., also seemed a bit much. I understand that a company may be picky, but upon explaining my situation to a friend, they half-jokingly questioned if the company was a front for some government operation, given the number of steps I had to take. My answer regarding if I got an offer is somewhat misleading because, two months later, I was merely asked to contact if I was still interested, so technically an "offer" would be incorrect. I began to question how the company itself was run if the interview process took this long for a semi-entry level position. The people at the company seem perfectly amicable, but the interview process as a whole left a weird taste in my mouth.
