- Anonymous Employee in United StatesNo OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
InterviewSoon after I applied online, I received an invitation to take a screening test. After a bit of back-and-forth with the team lead to confirm when they'd need me to start this temp proofreading job and how the difference in time zone would be handled, I received the timed-but-not-timed test and returned it on time. As an extremely experienced proofreader, I found the first part of the test extremely easy and the second part, which involved an Excel spreadsheet, less so. Then 6 days later, I received an identical email from the team inviting me to take their screening test. I wrote back to let them know I'd already completed it and forwarded the previous thread that included my attachments. Then heard crickets for 4 days until just now, when I was informed that they'd "identified several individuals whose experience and credentials most closely match the advertised job description." Anyone can miss an email, but the fact that no one cared enough or had a few minutes to spare to apologize for their oversight and assure me that they'd review my test soon is a red flag. This team was apparently unfazed that they'd wasted my time and left me hanging. I honestly feel that I've dodged a bullet. Thanks, WestEd!Interview
The first part of the screening test was extremely easy (around 15 pp. of student testing material). The second part, involving an Excel spreadsheet and multiple instructions, was more challenging; it took me much longer than the first part and left me doubting as to whether I was a good fit for them if they were looking for someone who could work more quickly on more left-brain admin stuff.Answer Question
