    Application

    The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Cactus Communications.

    Interview

    Had 15 multiple choice questions for the initial screening, quite heavily science focused, passed that and had the work sample test. Editing two passages, the first was reasonable, but the second was rife with errors, I (regrettably) chose to try a premium edit approach (which they indicate their need of in their email) but apparently I changed too much, "even a subtle change in wording could prevent an article from being accepted" was the reply I received. Ahhh yeah, so could an article full of rubbish. Why ask for a premium editing service if the editor cannot fix clear issues that are subject related and are facts? Actually, it could explain quite a number of the articles that I've had to peer review.

    Poor feedback, and obscure benchmarks, but hey, I'm sure you guys know what you're doing!

    Interview Questions

    • Edit this article, most of it is completely wrong, but that's ok, we just want you to fix grammar, because that way we won't have any responsibility if the article isn't accepted!   1 Answer
