    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    The company called a few days after I had submitted an application. They asked me basic questions about availability, salary, and type of work I was interested in over the phone. I agreed to go for an interview the next day. I went in the next morning and they asked me to take a simple detail test to see if I could spot the errors on a worksheet. Then I got called in for the interview. It was pretty simple and relaxed. After the interview, I took a typing and 10-key test. I was then told to go back to the interviewer's office where she offered me the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a person that conducted a pre-screen telephone interview. Once that completed she had be come into the office for test and formal interview. The test was very easy. The interview was conducted by a recruiter who kept looking out the window and it lasted a total of five minutes, if that. She talked mostly about the company. I was overqualified for the position. She kept referring back to my HR experience. I wanted a temp job for the holidays.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    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?

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing too difficult, just looked over my resume and asked me questions off of that.   Answer Question

    Territory Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hartford, CT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Hartford, CT) in April 2012.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    The process was superb. I'm not local to their headquarters so all communications happened between phone & email. They walked me through exactly why I am not a match of what they are looking for and the entire experience was truly refreshing. Just being considered was flattering to me and now I am more than impressed by the level of professionalism and kindness that Lakeshore's staff has displayed. Lakeshore is already bookmarked in my computer and I will check back frequently for openings. They are going to keep my information on file and I will be in touch should I see something I am interested in.

    Keep up the great work Lakeshore and thank you so much for your time!

    Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I applied for this position online and received a call from an HR representative within a couple days. The phone call really set the tone for what their interview process would offer. The recruiter (or maybe it was an admin) was very friendly and upbeat. It was a refreshing change from the many stale, dry interactions I’ve had interviewing with other companies. We had a nice chat and she scheduled me to come in for an interview the very next day. When I arrived for my interview I was handed what seemed to be an attention to detail test….I was taken off guard at first but then noticed all applicants received this exam so it must be standard. I found the interview to be relaxed and really catered to my interest and what I was looking for in my next position. There was a lot of time spent on culture fit as it is their number one concern being a 3rd generation family owned company. I left feeling educated on the company and position I applied for. The Recruiter said she would touch base with me the following week and as promised, I received an email with a very gentle let down explaining I just didn’t have enough experience for their current needs. Although I was disappointed to miss out on this exciting opportunity, I felt compelled to share my great experience with an untraditional interview process. I only wish other “corporate” companies would take some pointers and break up the monotony of me having to repeat my script over and over again but instead wanting to get to know me as a person. Although no offer, great experience.
