Has anyone tried Turing? Is it good for finding jobs? What does the process look like after registering with them?

TL; DR: They are fine, but they take more than 50% of your paycheck forever and give you virtually no profit for it. It is better to avoid them and wait for another opportunity.

TL; DR: They are fine, but they take more than 50% of your paycheck forever and give you virtually no profit for it. It is better to avoid them and wait for another opportunity.


About a month ago, before the Coronavirus hit the world, I was browsing Facebook and noticed an ad for Build Faster Than Ever With Vetted Remote Developers, a platform that tests developers and relates them to businesses, with a focus in remote work. , which is my favorite -.

Now I like these platforms because I think there is a huge gap in technical recruiting, especially in the software world, and recruiters in general suck. At one point, I was seriously considering founding a startup similar to what they do too.

I hate applying for software engineering jobs not because I hate interviews, in fact I'm one of the few who really enjoys a technical interview, but because I hate interviewing 20 different companies to find a good position. The software is very specialized and finding the perfect match will take a lot of effort.

I've previously tried TripleByte, which I consider the leader in the space. I ranked 1% (top 20) in their interviews and really enjoyed the process. Despite its streamlined process, I still had to spend a full 1 month reviewing companies, offers, phone interviews, and on-site interviews, etc., which is no fun.

It was around 1 a.m. and I was like what the heck, let's give Turing a chance. I clicked on the Facebook ad, hopped onto their site, signed up, and went through a bunch of coding questions in many different areas:

Turing development panel

I did a lot of programming tests and team building tests. The material was good overall, but the quality and design were mediocre at best. But I continued because I like to keep my skills sharp and challenge myself.

Before the multiple choice questions, they also had 3 algorithm tests that were pretty straightforward too (junior level stuff).

A few days later, I received an email from them telling me that I was doing very well and that they would like to move on with me. At this point I had completely forgotten about them, so I made it clear why not.

They asked me to do a few more tests, specifically the ones with the highest demand (Go, React, etc.) and for someone to contact me soon to discuss what I'm looking for.

A few days later I scheduled a Zoom call with a lady on her team who discussed what I am looking for and salary expectations. I told him that I am primarily looking for opportunities for growth and challenge, and that salary is secondary to me, but I will not consider anything below $ 100k.

A few days later I received scheduled calls with 4 of the founders, who seemed interested in me and wanted to hire me for their internal team. Having had a similar experience with TripleByte (they also wanted me for their internal team, and I didn't want that to bias them against pairing me up with other good options, as I like to have a lot of options when I try and consider), I asked them to also Follow me on the appropriate track, and they said yes.

A few days later, I received an email from the recruiter, Mr. K., that I had been matched with a company and that he would like to speak with me about it, introducing me to the CEO of the company. I said yes, and scheduled a call for Wednesday.

The day before Tuesday's call, the founding team hosted a Zoom meeting to make me an offer. Once I accepted the call, they told me they wanted to have me on the team as a Product Manager and on a base salary of $ 120k with room to grow, etc. However, first they would make me work at $ 60k for a trial period. That was the first red flag. I said well, but what is the criterion for leaving the trial period, that is, how long and under what conditions? They clearly hadn't thought about it and didn't have a clear answer, and they were giving me conflicting answers. My conclusion was that the trial period is endless, they just want me to work for half the salary for as long as they can, and then maybe they'll let me go or figure something else out. This was a big red flag. In any case,

On Wednesday, I had the call with Mr. K, the recruiter and the CEO of the company who wanted me. I clicked really well with the CEO and we decided to move on right away. He sent me access to his Github repository to get some ideas and estimates. I asked him about his typical contract, as the fine print of the contract is usually important to me, and he sent me his model contract, along with the number he had in mind for me at $ 80 / hour.

Mr. K emailed me a couple of hours later telling me that he has spoken with the CEO and would like to move forward with them. He also told me that they had set my desired rate of $ 42 / hr (???) and that it is a great opportunity and that I should agree from the start.

Then I got an email from the CEO in an hour or so, saying that Turing had reneged my rate to $ 73 / hr from $ 80 / hr. Strange.

I emailed him and asked Mr. K where he got the desired rate from and why he is trading me down, rather than up. To which he panicked and asked me to meet with his supervisor.

I jumped on the call and met with both of them. The supervisor was a middle-aged Indian guy, who was very charming but clearly a salesman, trying to sell me the offer. He started by congratulating me, then he condescended and tried to force me to sign his contract. I said I'll have to sleep with him. They kept insisting, and at this point the compliments turned into threats that "if you don't sign now, who knows if they get someone else and you may not have any job in this coronavirus pandemic." to which I replied that I already have a job and my own company and I am just reviewing options. But the approach of the car salesman and the threats was another red flag.

Finally I told them that I would at least need to know from their own team of engineers whether they wanted to hire me or not, something they had no idea about. So they did me a favor and called the engineering team and asked them to withdraw their own offer in hopes of persuading me to accept the new offer quickly. Keep in mind that this is all in the span of a few hours, even though I tell you that I never make those decisions in 1 day and I always sleep on that first.

After they canceled the first offer, I told them that I would give them the final answer on Monday, to give them a few days to think about it. I also emailed the CEO, telling him what's going on in details, and that I'm not about to go ahead with a shady and aggressive company.

Despite asking for a few days to think, they kept spamming me with calls and emails and even text messages that this is a good opportunity and I shouldn't pass it easily and I won't find another blah blah blah. They even sent me their own contract and asked me to sign it!

The next red flag was in the fine print of the contract. I've been in security for over 15 years and I'm a little crazy about privacy. I had told you this many times from the beginning, and that I will never install time-tracking keyboard and screen capture software on any of my machines, as I know how insecure these software are. They said no problem and they don't have keyboard tracking software and their software just keeps track of time, and that I can do it manually too without screenshots, which is fine and I usually do. But then in the fine print it didn't just say they can and will record keystrokes, Rather, it said that both the partner company and Turing can access this information and can enable / disable it at will. Oh oh! I understand the need to do it, but why lie to the front? Is this a car dealer?

On Monday I told them that I couldn't sign any contracts with Turing because at this point I no longer trust them with various red flags and shady behaviors. They made me jump into another call with Mr. K and the Indian guy, where they said they understood and everything was fine, and asked me somewhat rudely not to get involved with the company on my own anymore, which was something on what you had previously agreed to. with the CEO, as we both agree that Turing is shady, but it is the medium he introduced us to, so it would be unethical to continue our collaboration.

I told them in advance what the red flags were and that my experience with them was a car dealership experience, and that it would only continue if they received their share and did not require me to return to work with Turing in any capacity, to which they said. . They said it's something they can't do and retaining talent is their top priority, which makes sense since their business model is not to recruit but to enslave, they find people in other countries who have lower expectations, they sell them to American companies and They take a 50% paycut for doing practically nothing. I mean, taking a 20% or even 30% pay cut would be tolerable, but 50% is insane!

Even though I told them that I don't want to have anything to do with Turing and that I've made up my mind, they kept insisting that I should take this job! And if I ever change my mind I should sign the contract and take the job, which further reinforced the amount of profit they make from these deals and that all they care about is profit and nothing else. So at this point, they weren't as bad as recruiters, but a lot worse.


PS: August 2020

They are desperate. The only person on Quora who said they had a good experience working with them now advertises Turing dot com in random responses:

I just tried it. I was immediately irritated. So I have to run a series of tests to somehow verify that I know what I am doing. It doesn't really help that they are testing me with JavaScript. They also wanted me to do a 20 hour challenge. I'd rather use those 20 hours to bill a customer.

Maybe it's because I have a lot of work at the moment. Maybe I just don't feel like being tested. But I really see that this platform has the same problem as the other platforms. They are not attending to my finding clients, they are attending to clients who find anyone.

I also find your

Maybe it's because I have a lot of work at the moment. Maybe I just don't feel like being tested. But I really see that this platform has the same problem as the other platforms. They are not attending to my finding clients, they are attending to clients who find anyone.

I also find your Top 1% and Silicon Valley slogans insulting. Silicon Valley programmers have jobs, I think you'd have to be an idiot to do remote work from Silicon Valley.

I also think your website sucks. It's stylish, but it comes up so slowly I wasn't even sure it was working.

Anyway, if I'm going to stick with the same old stuff, then there are plenty of other platforms I'm more confident about working rather than something I've never heard of. The way I'd rather prove myself is by talking to clients and convincing them that I know what I'm doing. If I can't, they won't hire me. If they hire me and decide that I don't know what I'm doing, they can just fire me. The tests are not going to establish anything.

But seriously, I think someone should throw this on his head. I know I would pay money to find real good clients who are not wasting time. What if they provide me with a paid service that actually finds me clients with real work and money to pay for it instead of making me look for it?

I guess there is a chance that I will end this at some point and see what happens, but I doubt it.

A huge waste of time. This business is simply not finished. In a pre-pre-alpha state.

My memories of applying are a bit hazy as the whole process took many months (4, 5, 6, can't remember or don't bother to check).

It starts with the site. It is fraught with problems. They offer the best x% developers to their clients, but they cannot produce a decent site for themselves ...

When I first applied it quite frequently required reloads, retries, refill_and_sub, etc.

Then they give you some coding challenges and state that there is a time limit of a certain number of minutes per issue.

A huge waste of time. This business is simply not finished. In a pre-pre-alpha state.

When I first applied it quite frequently required reloads, retries, refill_and_sub, etc.

Then they give you some coding challenges and state that there is a time limit of a certain number of minutes per issue.

When it starts, the counter is initialized with a different number of minutes; a higher number ... they don't screw you on this front, they actually help you ... but it's obvious the site's programming is flawed.

Moving on: initially they said you would have to solve 2 coding challenges. The Start button was enabled for the first one; the second, logically, disabled.

I clicked the first Start button, I solved my first problem successfully within the allotted time, I clicked Submit. They processed my submitted code, said it was 100% correct, and congratulated me on solving the SECOND issue. What what???

At this point, there was no way to move forward in the process - the second issue (which I haven't had a chance to address yet) showed up as completed, while the first issue (which I actually resolved) had a disabled Start button. .

There was simply no way to advance the site any further.

I contacted someone from HR (Nokuthula Thuli Mnyandu) via LinkedIn and described the issue. No response for a long time (many days / few weeks).

One random day I noticed something changed on the site - the Get Started button for the first issue was now enabled (the second still seemed to have completed successfully).

I reasoned that my message got through and someone took "some" corrective action. And if I click on that button, the content of the second problem will appear in front of my eyes. A very twisted way to get to him but oh well ...

Surprise, surprise ... the first problem greeted me once more. I thought: I'll just copy and paste my old code from a few weeks ago, and after submitting it, maybe it will lead me to the second problem.

More surprises ... this time my solution was judged only 80% correct. Too bad ... As a consequence, I was removed from the investigation process for 3 months.

I contacted Nokuthula Thuli Mnyandu again, describing the new developments. This time she responded quickly. She seemed unhappy that I took the exam twice (although it was not my fault) and said no, it is not possible to remove the 3-month "punishment". Oh well ... life ...

A month or two passed (not 3 !!!) and again, some random day, I saw that my profile "kept going". Somehow I got through the challenge step of the algorithm and was pushed into the FAQ section (multiple choice question). Yaaaaay, I guess? Even though I didn't do anything to deserve it ...

At this point, I really started to regard the entire site / organization / business as a (bad) joke. I understand that their mistakes were in favor of the applicant, but clearly they were not in control of their process. How could someone do successful business with them?

From this point on, I persisted just out of curiosity / laughter.

I took the MCQ from iOS (I am an iOS developer). I made a mess, losing all momentum / focus by now. However, the official answer to one of your questions was so, so, SO wrong that you just HAD to use the Report Problems with Question button. They had such a thing ... says a lot about their confidence in their own work / test ...

Overall, I expected to be (legitimately) failed. Somehow they agreed with my test, but said I needed to take another MCQ. Hope for??? Why??? I am an iOS developer, I did the iOS test. Either it passes or it fails. Why should I take another MCQ for another technology? That should be? Android? Java? .NET? C #? Backend? DevOps? Machine learning? I'm neither of those things ... why should I take an MCQ for any of them?

Anyway ... I'm here for the fun of it right now, so why not continue? I set my sights on the Android MCQ and apparently passed it or something (I have only marginal business experience with it, I would never say that I am an Android guy).

Moving on ... a 30 minute face-to-face interview with a Turing developer ... After a delay of 11 to 12 minutes, my interviewer, a Kenyan gentleman, Marisa Ncube, made an appearance on Zoom. He apologized for the delay and suggested that we reschedule. Fair enough.

In the second interview (on time), my interviewer, a Russian gentleman, Alexey Borovkov, dropped the bomb: he will give me a test programming in Java or JavaScript.

I politely asked what Java or JavaScript have to do with me. I am an iOS developer, I introduced myself as such to them, my CV only exudes iOS experience, I did the online programming test in Swift and took the iOS MCQ. My Xcode and the Simulator are turned on right next to the Zoom window, ready to process some Swift code ... so ... what do you mean by Java or JavaScript?

He replied that this is the procedure.

At this point, it wasn't even fun anymore. I explained the situation and requested that we end the call.

Thus ends my Turing adventure. I just want my time back, I wish I had abandoned it at the first signs of poor business practices.

Yes . I tried it after seeing a Facebook ad.
There was a DS Algo test and 3 MCQs (I did React, NodeJS, Git for the Front-end role). I solved the DS challenge but did not perform as well in MCQ. (I could have assured 60%). But I was shortlisted for the interview and authorized the process. I admit that there are some loopholes in their selection process and they are in favor of the candidates. Then the pairing began. They finally paired me with a client and after their little technical interview, I signed their contract. They offered me $ 20 an hour.

This might be low by the US standard, but being from India, you could earn around 2.5 LPA in the first month, which is very high by the India standard for the 4 years of experience.

Yes, as many answers say, you need to install Turing time tracking software, but I don't see any security issues with it. That will only track when enabled and even if you feel a security risk, just buy a new laptop for your work and go for it. Everything worked out great, but I quit after 2 months because I couldn't adjust to time zones. Being in India and having a US customer required 4 hours of overlap from 9:30 pm to 1:30 am. I found it difficult to adjust and spend time with family and I also work full time for another company.

I don't know how much profit Turing can make from us, but that's none of our business, as long as we're paid for our expectations. Overall I would say the experience was very straightforward and definitely worth a try. However, as you do not receive any benefits from a full time employee (such as PF, Insuarace, health benefits, etc.) and your contract can end at any time. Matchmaking can take time and you get paid only if you work and have a client, not like the monthly salaries you regularly receive from your company.

Also, don't think of doing it as a side project alongside your regular work. It may work if you are single and can spend 12-13 hours working per day, but otherwise it is a bit difficult.

If you agree with the above points, definitely give it a try. I can tell from my experience. Going anonymous because I work full time for another company and I took Turing's job during my night shift.

tl; dr - Imagine taking an 8 hour “take-home test” claiming to have examined rockstar's top 10 developers, etc. BEFORE talking to a single recruiter! And never know how you did it (percentage or percentile of testers or any comments) until that recruiter called you. (Disclosure, I have not yet interviewed a real human being)

I tried them and it's not worth it. This is all my opinion before speaking to a single human (recruiter or technical / engineer / manager interviewer). These are my reasons:

*****

I tried them and it's not worth it. This is all my opinion before speaking to a single human (recruiter or technical / engineer / manager interviewer). These are my reasons:

  1. I applied for the "web backend" category and they ask you to do 6 to 8 hours of algorithms and multiple choice tests. The problem is that you take these tests and have no idea how you fared on any of them until / unless they call you back. Terrible feedback loop in my opinion. What if you completely bombed your 45-minute Ruby test but did well on everything else, why not know from the start so you don't waste anyone's time?
  2. The editor for writing code in the algorithms section is not formatted for indentation or anything else, even if you increase the screen size. He's just a bad editor. They would do better to use Hackerrank. The same goes for multiple-choice questions. You are supposed to answer about 20 questions about classic sort / search algorithms, and each question has A / B / C / D options, each one with confusing indentation, asking "which line is wrong in algorithm X"? Someone should make a youtube video / tutorial on how comically awful it all is. Really bad user experience, for talking such a great game about creating such an ideal environment for remote developers.
  3. It seems like more than half of the jobs they recruit for are Node / React, which may change over time, but if you're not coding in those languages, don't bother, in my opinion. Go to Toptal or something like that.
  4. I ran the following tests: Git, Data Structures and Algorithms, SQL, and Ruby on Rails. Most of the questions within them are trivia style, and / or the English for asking the question is bad (I'm not criticizing ESL here, but be careful editing the grammar of your questions or paying someone else to do it) . It's unprofessional if you're talking about a game as important as Turing. Sometimes he couldn't even understand the questions. Also, some of the multiple choice answers are just plain wrong, even a jr. dev would notice that.
  5. It's okay. I've finished. Not that I have spent so much time testing; it's more than testing, editors were formatted and presented so badly with so little feedback on how I did it. Imagine taking an 8-hour “take-home test” BEFORE talking to just one recruiter!

Turing also provides a time tracking service, in the form of daily task sheets, so clients can effectively monitor and manage their hires.

After MCQ tests, coding challenges, and technical interviews, profiles are evaluated based on the candidate's experience and knowledge, as well as their availability and location. Turing ensures an overlap of 4 hours of work between the client and the talent, for better communication. Turing also requires your talents to be proficient in English communication.

If you are looking for an alternative to Turing, you must visit Crewscale. Crewscale is much better than Turing on several fronts - the skill set is much broader, the hiring process is much more robust. Crewscale's technical interview platform, Codesync, and domain-specific project evaluations are far superior as candidate evaluation methods, both in terms of rigor and specificity.

Crewscale's hourly rates are considerably lower than Turing's. The Crewscale expertise also includes automated timesheets and automated payroll, tax and fulfillment.

I received an invitation for a telephone interview; the interview was basically a list of technologies and my experience with each one (how old are you with X? And what about Y, how old?) All those questions were asked although first they ask you the same thing via email, but apparently, the person who handled the interview did not read the email with the answers that I sent them earlier. Next, During the phone call, it was clear to the frontend that they were only looking for React or Angular developers. I am a full stack developer and can do both backend programming in PHP and frontend UI with modern CSS / SASS / LESS etc, but jQuery a bit outdated, but no one made it clear that knowledge of React was required or Angular to go on and I know both at the beginner level. They told me because of my skills, they would have me on file and contact me, it would just take more time, maybe a month, but they would definitely contact me, but now, 4 months later, I am clear that that is not going to happen. Then, Although they told me that my presentation was one of the best in history, I never heard from them again. Bottom line: I wasted 20-25 hours on test assignments, one hour on emails, and 20 minutes on phone interviews.

At that point I had already quit my job, I explained to the guy who emailed me many times that I had done the homework, and he promised me a job himself, but he kept asking for more tasks as a Robot, no matter what I sent, he always responded with the same words, without any respect for my time and effort, his only excuse was that they changed their policy! and I'm the one who bore the consequences

My advice is not to deal with them at all, they have no respect for people, the only thing they care about is scamming you and making money from you.

by the way, I have evidence, that's my coding task (which by the way they asked me to keep the project private):

Hi guys! I am one of those lucky developers who work there.

I've been with the company for 6 months now and it's great.

The company is growing very fast and the hiring procedure has changed a lot several times, so yes, some gaps are to be expected.

But we keep making more and more improvements.

I started as a backend developer in the internal project, then they found me a very interesting project.

As for labor-intensive testing tasks ...
From my perspective: there are two benefits you can achieve during your implementation if you are motivated:

a) once again you can check your work by building a new usi system

I started as a backend developer in the internal project, then they found me a very interesting project.

As for labor-intensive testing tasks ...
From my perspective: there are two benefits you can achieve during your implementation if you are motivated:

a) once again you can review your work building a new system using your favorite technology

b) add one more project to your github profile when ready.

So, I am ready to grow with this company.

It is a total waste of time.

Before joining Turing, take an oath:

  1. I will not expect any dignity from anyone during the course of the interview process and also after onboarding.
  2. I feel very comfortable being humiliated by everyone on the Turing team.
  3. I'm perfectly fine with Turing taking a lot of blood and sweat on behalf of the commission.
  4. I will say that you agree with everything the Turing leadership says regardless of my benefits.

TURING MISSION:

There will be a 1 hour online coding test, which they claim to be supreme, but any mediocre idiot can pass the test.

After that, you will be asked to pass the test.

TURING MISSION:

There will be a 1 hour online coding test, which they claim to be supreme, but any mediocre idiot can pass the test.

After that, you will be asked to pass the test on a backend and a frontend and a communication test or two.

These hiring idiots will keep pushing you as hard as they can to finish the test as fast as if the whole world is waiting for your service. But this is the catch.

They pressure you not to take too long to prepare. So you can easily fail or score low.

This is the main strategy, to counteract the establishment of a low rate card, on their website it is mentioned as $ 100 to $ 200 / Hr. But by not allowing enough time for your preparation, you get a low score and make you work for ONLY $ 20 / Hr.

Last but not least, they don't treat you with dignity. Every representative that interacts with you will be very arrogant, intimidating, and bossy.

This is my experience with TURING up to the moment of incorporation, I clearly told you no. and go out.

Hope you at least have a better experience.

He went through the registration on the site, then provoked a series of tests, finished a test, and they sent a scheduled live video chat where they use a Chinese boy who is SO anxious and his thoughts and words seem suspicious that they are up to something of this, (think about it, have you ever attended an interview with people who are not serious talking, so anxious and not confident enough that you do not know how to explain the work process?) they answered a question that a person asked about what the payment delivered, saying that you will feel comfortable without mentioning what and how it will be, total no
