  1. Kibin Editor Interview

    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kibin (United States)

    Interview

    As many others before me have reported, the overall interview process with Kibin seemed a bit unfair and frustrating. I rarely write reviews, but I felt the need to take the time out of my day to write an honest review for my interview experience with Kibin. I had passed the first stage, which was to provide them with qualifications and credentials along with responses to a few questions. The wait was between a few hours to a day. The next stage was to go through a series of "guideline" sections where they explained how things would look like once we were accepted. Everything seemed pretty fair and straightforward. They advised me not to skim through the guidelines, but to really take the time to understand their expectations and read with care. The overall reading process took about 15 to 20 minutes. The final step in stage two was to successfully complete a "sample editing test." I understand and appreciate that they take this test very seriously, so clients may have high quality, if not the best editors. However, the expectations for this test seemed quite vague and unfair. They did not set specific expectations or lay out exactly what they were looking for. The essay was 12 pages long where the author clearly was not a native English speaker. There was a time limit of 9 hours. Being an ESL professor for 5 plus years and currently working as a college composition professor with a doctorate in English, I have had many experiences revising, editing, and proofreading student essays, especially those of ESL students. Although this particular essay was excruciatingly painful to read, I offered as much critical feedback as they had advised me to do in their "guideline" readings. I nearly spent a good chunk of the day dedicating myself to this sample editing test. I submitted everything on time with care. A few hours later, I receive an email stating that I did not pass. There was no feedback or explanation as to why I had failed the test. Overall, communication with the Kibin team was professional and nice; however, it would have been nice if the editing test had set a more straightforward and strict set of guidelines as to what they were precisely looking for. The other thing to note is that they only allow editors to strictly edit with Microsoft Word, so no Mac users and their Pages.
