Ive taken a few bench tests over the past few years and have never
been paid nor asked to be paid for the time i spent. Recently i
talked to a few people that said i should have asked to be
I have employees and they usually have some skill but not much
practice, so I don’t have to do a bench test. I have usually relied
on references or resume when more skilled help was needed.
I have bench tested, and I was not paid and I did not expect to be. A
bench test is an audition. If I was looking for a job, I would want
to bench test so my employer was pretty clear what the quality of my
work is so I can get paid what I am worth. When I looked for
employment, I was pretty clear that although they were interviewing
me, I was interviewing them.
