    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pearson.

    Interview

    First - phone interview to get to know more information about your job history and learn more about position. Second, face-to-face interview with District Sales Manager and Regional Sales Manager. It was basically a walk through my resume and ask further questions about job history and the position. Next, campus project and then final face-to-face interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pearson (Orlando, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Met with another department for about 30 minutes. Was a one-on-one interview, interviewer was polite and talked mostly about the position. Interviewer was mainly interested in my background and why I was seeking the position (which I was overqualified for). Told me he would recommend me for the position. Very friendly guy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pearson.

    Interview

    Long interview process. If you have full time job be ready to take some personal time to complete different tasks. If you get through the panel interview, you'll be asked to complete a campus project. You can't prepare enough for this.

    Interview

    This was a joke! One and a half hour interview and the "managers" we're dressed in business casual attire....Really? Must have needed an additional candidate to bring in for Quito! Was not impressed with either "manager!"

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pearson (Elk Grove, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter about a week later. Recruiter forgot to call me for initial scheduled phone screen, had to reschedule for the next day. The recruiter in general seemed to have little idea of what the position actually did on a daily basis, mostly talked about the company as a whole. After the phone screen there was an in-person interview with two managers of the enrollment team

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly questions based on previous admissions experience. They stressed that it was a very metric driven job that would be judged daily.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pearson in May 2015.

    Interview

    Initially I received a call from a member of their recruiting team. Was then set up on a phone interview with the hiring manager. Following those interviews, I was then scheduled to interview (virtually, as a Google hangout) with two seperate teams. This particular role would be split between two departments. The process took place over the span of a month or so. Though the hiring manager had expressed extreme interest, I never received any sort of follow up after the third interview with the teams. Very unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical and expected questions...how my experience related to the position, etc.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pearson (Bryn Mawr, PA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Was contacted by one of their recruiters within 48 hours of receipt of my resume. Had a phone interview with her scheduled about a week later. The following week was an in-person interview. The interviewer had a list of questions prepared by corporate HR that he followed in order. He didn't have any "off script" questions. The ones asked were really quite standard, with a lot of "scenario" based questions. It then took nearly a month before I got a response, even though I had originally been told I'd hear something in about a week. When I followed up with recruiter, they did apologize for the delay.

    • Describe my current position, and my level of interaction with other departments (particularly any developers)   Answer Question
