    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cengage Learning.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my materials early October. Had screening (phone) interview (which the recruiter was obviously in huge hurry to complete), then didn't hear anything for weeks. Thought I was out--until I received email asking if I could fly across country THAT WEEK for onsite interview! This was (thankfully) delayed two weeks. Actual interview consisted of seven 30-minute conversations with the various folks in the department. Spent very little time with actual hiring manager, sad to say. Did not feel that they really got to know me.

    Interview Questions
    • Was shown brand new textbook that I was laying eyes on for first time and asked "How would you market this?" Also, "What would you change about our current offerings?"   Answer Question

    Software QA Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Cengage Learning in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Approached by Staffing Agency. First round was phone interview and second one was skype with a panel of 5 people.
    Phone interview was fine. Typical interview questions about previous experiences. What would make you happy at your job? What is your ideal job?
    The panel interview seemed very haphazard. No one seemed to know who is supposed to ask questions and on what topic. very strange.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing difficult or unexpected asked...
      What is it that appeal to you about this position?

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Cengage Learning.

    Interview Details

    My interviews were great but I feel there were too many of them. My initial interview was with human resources. The second interview was with the person for whom I was going to work under. The third interview was with that person's boss and the final interview was with that person's boss's boss. Way too many interviews. But, I got the job!

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    The interview process took approximately 3 to 4 weeks. Once I was given an offer, everything just fell into place as a normal expected hire.
