As an Applications Manager at Senior Team, it will be your responsibility to review and answer all incoming applications for your specific department, either accepting or denying the applicants, based on criteria outlined here.

Applicant Criteria

It is your duty as an Application Manager to evaluate each individual on relevant criteria, not based on personal, biased motives such as your experience with them, whether they are your friends or not, them already being a freelancer on a well-known team, etc. If you believe you may have biases towards an applicant you are reviewing, please contact the Head of Applications.

We strongly support fairness, thus all applicants must be treated the same, with no favoritism or exceptions.

Application Process

Portfolio & MCM checks + Basic Trial Commission/Request

  1. First of all, you’ll review the Applicant’s Portfolio to check their work quality and experience. Use this page to evaluate applicant portfolios. Then you’ll move to the other pieces of information provided in the application.
  2. You will check their MCM to see if they have any negative reputation, open scam reports, etc. If they are clear, proceed further; otherwise, if there is any scam report or negative reputation, you should ask them first about it and give them a chance to explain. However, if they fail to provide a valid argument with proof, you can deny them and ban from opening further applications in the future.
  3. Lastly, after the applicant’s information has been checked and they’ve been cleared to go further, you will give them a small, basic trial commission they need to complete within 48 hours (e.g.: basic logo, plugin, bot, website page, document, etc.)
    1. In case the applicant fails to post anything within those 48 hours and they don’t say anything or don’t provide any updates, you can deny them.
    2. If they ask for a short time extension (1-2 days), you can accept their request, as long as they have a valid reason on why they need more time, such as exams, electricity outage, PC not working, etc.
    3. If the work quality is poor and far below our standards, you can deny them for a failed trial.
    4. If you are unsure about the work quality (work is decent, but not that impressive), you can give them one more small trial to double check if they should pass to the next stage.
    5. After they finish the request, you should ask them a few key questions about how they did the trial, in order to see if they really created it or just copied the work off the internet (e.g.: ask them how they added shadows, velocity, how they created a specific build, how they added a specific page to a website, how the bot runs a specific process, etc). You can (and should) also ask them to provide proof of ownership of the work.

Training Stage

If the applicant passes this initial stage, they will move on to the training phase. During this time, the applicant will be given various tests and quizzes, as well as interviews and simulated conversations with clients. This is not done by Application Managers, and is handled by Senior Team's Training Team. To accept an applicant into the training phase, run the -trial @applicant command.

Instant deny

If an applicant is denied for any of the following reasons, you will not be paid for managing the application. The applicant must be denied for these reasons before they are given a trial commission.
