    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gengo in April 2016.

    Interview

    There was a 5-question online multiple-choice translation test. Though I am a native German and English speaker, I apparently only got 1/5 right. This is absurd, given that the multiple choice answers were all very badly formulated (clearly not by a native speaker) and I simply chose the most grammatically and logically correct option. If this is their standard, I would definitely not trust this site to produce accurate translations.
