    Web Search Evaluator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mississauga, ON
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Appen (Mississauga, ON) in May-2016.

    Interview

    Did not do an interview; completed a screening test composed of 3 parts (English competency, web search evaluation, technological competency) a few months after applying. I was given extremely clear instructions as to how one must proceed and the test questions are quite simple; it's a very easy test to pass as long as you follow the guidelines. I was emailed on the next business day and told that I was a successful candidate, and would be able to take on an assignment whenever one comes up.
