    Web Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Soda.

    Interview

    Not only do they ask for spec work, they are BOLD when they ask for spec work. I submitted my resume, had a ten minute phone screen, then was given an email with instructions for a design "test."

    The "test" was to redesign the reviews.com product pages and submit high fidelity mock-ups for both desktop and mobile. Also include wireframes and a document detailing "design thinking" about the redesign.

    Who do they think is going to fall for this? They obviously aren't hiring anyone - their business model can't support it. They want free work.
