Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cambridge Assessment (Cambridge, England) in April 2016.

Interview

Asynchronous video interview: you log on to a website. You read a question, and you have 1 minute and a half to collect your thoughts. A clock counts you down, then the camera start recording you and you have 1 minute and a half to answer the question. The last few seconds you hear the clock counting down again. The instructions tell you that once the time is up, the camera stop recording you: that's not true - it keeps rolling for a few seconds, so don't lose your "interview face" just yet. Then you get the next question, etc. You can't do a retake if you're unhappy with your answer, stammered, or whatever. You can review it at the end, but what's done is done. Unless you're an expert vlogger, you may feel like a lab rat being observed by invisible people. You have no feedback, of course, because you're talking to a machine. The ability to talk to a machine without being unsettled was not a requirement for the job.
