    Publisher's Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glenview, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glenview, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Pearson in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process is very lengthy at Pearson, and for many positions a "project" is also required of all applicants. For the Publisher's Rep position, I was ultimately hired after 1 phone interview, 4 in-person interviews, 2 shadowing sessions with current reps, and completion of a "campus project". The "campus project" involved calling on current or potential customers to interview faculty members about their perspective of the publishing industry, the sales process, etc. The post-project write up was then submitted for review along with any insights I learned from the day of "practicing" the job.

    Interview Questions
    • The in person interview with the district manager was very straightforward. The sales trainer liked to ask more of the pointless philosophical questions like "what is the most difficult work situation you've been in and how did you handle it?"   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Pearson in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    Although I knew the hiring manager wanted to hire me, I had to have another interview with an individual from HR. She did her best to rattle me or make me feel I was not suited to the position. The hiring manager was very apologetic that I even had to do a second interview with HR, but it was out of his hands.
