Common questions

How does it all work?

Are these jobs are apprenticeships? 

Both! Workback connects employers who are recruiting for open roles, as well as employers who are launching or scaling technical apprenticeships.

What is the time commitment for apprenticeships?

This is a full-time commitment: 40-45 hours per week for the six-month program.

How much will I be paid?

For direct hiring, the salary listed in the job description is the best source for wage information. During Apprenticeships, you’ll be paid at a rate equivalent to your seniority. The top apprentices candidates earn up to $130,000 per year.

What happens at the end of the Apprenticeship?

Upon completion of the apprenticeship, the company has the option to present you with a full-time offer to continue. You will transition to a full Employee with the company. Workback’s conversion rate from apprentice to full-time hires is 100% to date.

What's the coding assessment like?

The assessment covers mostly easy and some medium challenges for skills that are taught in most full-stack bootcamps such as: Javascript, React, Node.js, HTML, and SQL. It helps us get a baseline understanding of your skills. Here's some examples: challenge 1, challenge 2. The estimated time to complete is 2-3 hours, but there is no time limit as long as you complete it all at once, so block your calendar for 4 hours just to be safe.

What’s the Workback video interview like?

The Workback Video Interview is a simple screening interview. These interviews will be recorded, and may be shared with the host company during the application process. The interview will be a 10 minute video interview and cover mostly behavioral questions with maybe 1-2 basic technical questions. Please practice professional virtual/video interview habits – here’s a handy video interview guide to help you prepare.

What’s the Finalist interview like?

The Finalist Interviews will be conducted by the host company and consist of 2 parts. One is a behavioral/cultural interview where you will be asked straightforward questions about your background and how you’ve approached previous challenges in your career – practice the STAR method to prepare for this interview. The other is a technical interview where you’ll be asked to walk through your approach to coding challenge on a virtual ‘whiteboard’ – refer to Cracking the Coding Interview to prepare for this interview.

Is the Apprenticeship remote?

Most apprenticeships are hybrid, including both remote and in-person experiences. Ideally, apprentices must be able to commute (or relocate) to your employers' city of preference. However, even if this is not a possibility, we encourage you to apply as there may be opportunities for a fully remote experience for the right candidate, and we may be able to match you to other companies. You must be authorized to work in the USA to be eligible.
