    I have been working at CrowdSource part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is very good at paying what they owe you every day.

    Cons

    Tasks get caught in admin review and you may have to wait days for them to be approved. Worst part of the site is the other employees. The employee forum is a cesspool of negativity and should be avoided.

    Advice to Management

    Create a process for writers on the answer tasks to create a new question when the given question is impossible to answer.

    I Applied Via LinkedIn for A Position In Content Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CrowdSource (Swansea, IL (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process for CrowdSource was quick, but it was intense. I had a phone interview with HR; then another phone interview with HR plus the hiring manager; then an in-person interview with these two parties plus someone currently in the position I was applying for; then another in-person interview with the hiring manager and an executive-level manager. Needless to say, this was already more than I expected for what is essentially their entry-level, but I viewed it as an investment in what is clearly a great company. I will say that everyone was fantastically kind and welcoming, and asked thought-provoking questions that really moved the discussion along. The office seems very youth-oriented and casual.

    After these four interviews, I was asked to do not one, but two writing assessments (one with two parts). Keep in mind that these assessments were not quick projects. After the final assessment, I was told that while they loved me, my writing assessment just wasn't what they were looking for. I'd strongly advise CrowdSource and HR to move the writing assessments further up in the interview process. To go through the preparation and schedule re-organizing to make four separate interviews work, only to be turned down for a reason that could have been predicted earlier, was a major turn-off. Since I can't really do a phone interview at my current work place, I had to take personal time for all four interviews, and give up freelance work (and therefore money) to work on the lengthy writing assessments. I will not apply at this company again in the future now that I know how much they will string you along.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a lot of questions about my current position. The focus was on real situations and not hypotheticals, which was a nice surprise.   Answer Question
