# What's the minimum billing period for Guidepoint Global?

As part of a signup as an advisor, Guidepoint Global asks for the hourly rate (Consulting Rate (per hour)), but nowhere is it specified what the minimum billing period is.

Google reveals that most of these interviews last for 30 minutes.

What would be the appropriate way to set a good rate with them? Do they round it up to an hour? In other words, should one 4x or 8x the normal rate to achieve the standard 4-hour minimum, or is there an altogether different approach that should be employed at setting up the rate with this firm?

• This is very specifically asked. Can you please edit your question to make it relevant to users that aren't in this exact situation? – Memj Jun 19 '16 at 4:25
• @Memj, can you elaborate, or maybe even make an edit suggestion? – cnst Jun 19 '16 at 15:26
• You're asking about the billing period of a specific company. Only those who will work for this company will find it relevant. You should edit your question to phrase it in a way that could be useful for anyone in a similar situation but not the exact situation. – Memj Jun 19 '16 at 16:34
• It's a top-3 company; the question is comparable to someone asking about Google Search or Bing on SE Webmasters; I don't see how it could be changed without affecting its usefulness. – cnst Jun 19 '16 at 17:20
• Waste of time, make sure to get paid for full-hour or nothing. – user21702 Mar 19 at 10:57
