Here is my experience as a Remote (work from home) Spanish<>English Interpreter with 2 years' experience. I was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn on a Thursday and by Monday I was training. However it was rushed, making me suspect that recruiters have a quota.

Here are the steps:
1. I had an initial phone interview with a recruiter. Discussed pay, benefits, training & starting dates and technical requirements.
2. Phone call to have a language test done
3. Advised that I passed test. Had a skype interview with a hiring manager in which my interpreting experience, past experience and future goals were discussed.
4. Recruiter advised that I passed my interview and background check and was now hired. Had to fill out a job application online and select a schedule, send a copy of social and passport notarized. Company does not reimburse for notarization expense. No drug test was requested.
5. Received emails with remote training information i.e. website, login info. Started training the following day.

The interview was like chit-chat, the VP talking in tangents through much of it, which turns out is not effective in choosing who to hire. A lot of...off...coworkers as a result.

Try to care about your own employees' welfare and safety in the work place. or just stop pretending you care about anything but your fake reputation. Be honest, transparent, and get to know your rank and filers.
