    Sent in my résumé and was called to come in for a interview the next day. Interview with HR and was told I would make a lot of money , it was a great company. I was told I would hear something in a week . Received a email a week later and was told they were looking for someone with education sales experience . I felt that was obvious by my résumé. I didn't understand why call someone in if that is what you want. I have met two other people that went through the same thing.

    Human Resources Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carson, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carson, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Quick phone interview, was called in for an in person interview, not called back for a second interview. When I asked what types of qualities they were looking for in their candidates, it kind of seemed like they were giving me the responses I wanted to hear based on the answers I gave them earlier in the interview. It was pretty quick, about 15 minutes, but I had to take a short quiz on error corrections to test my eye for detail beforehand. I thought it went really well, I think they wanted someone with more experience, even though they said personality is more important than experience because you can always train someone. Who knows?

    Territory Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone screen was fairly standard, and lasted about 3 minutes. The initial phone screen was followed up by a phone screen from the hiring mgr., with more direct questions regarding my background - and why I would want the job.. I then had a live 1:1 meeting with the hiring Mgr, which lasted 30 minutes and pretty much covered the same subject matter. Lastly, I had a phone screen with one of the Presidents, covering the same basic resume review questions - and why I'd be a good fit for the job.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied on the company web site, then called HR directly, to express my interest. I received a return phone call a few hours later and was asked a few simple questions regarding my work history and salary expectations. I was then asked to come in for an interview a few days later in which I met with DEB who is the HR director. The interview was easy and confortable, she asked me initially to just talk about myself. After 45 minutes we closed the interview and she said I would hear from her in one week. Be sure to ask what the hiring process is seems kind of lengthy.
