I'm a guy from the Netherlands and I applied for LionBridge a few months ago.
I know it from a friend, he worked there for about a year I think. I have to say 1 thing: Don't worry if the reply takes long. That friend had applied and he didn't hear something for over a year because they have people enough, but they said they will keep him in mind. Usually when a company tells you that, you know they don't, but LB actually does!
After about a year they let him know they were looking for new people, and he got in and worked there for about a year, and I applied a few months ago (sent them my resume and filled in the details of the account). Now a few weeks ago I spoke to him and he told me he would probably get fired, because he didn't work anymore, didn't want to anymore. Now 2-3weeks later, I got my mail from LB stating they look for new people :).
(By the way, it doesn't matter what's on your resume, I haven't got any degree, did some schools, have worked at some places, I am an IT guy though, but haven't finished anything, and it doesn't matter.)
They mailed me if I'm still interested I should let them know. I mailed them, and the same day I've got a reply with instructions. They told me I had to agree a few things and then go through the exam and then it should be done. I've read everything, agreed, and now 2 days ago they mailed me the exam materials. The only problem is that they have technical diffficulties now, I instantly got a message again saying "Thanks for making the test, but you failed," while I haven't done anything. Monday things should be resolved and I can do the exams!
I've asked my friend about some things, and they always pay on time (like many people here experience) and thanks for this information too, it's been really useful!
Just wanted to thank you and share my experience so far!
Can't wait till Monday! I'll let you people know how it went!
