    Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Pearson.

    Interview

    Emailed me to do a "video interview" - think of the movie "Up in the Air". You are asked a question and you stare at an inanimate object (your computer) and give an answer. The HR person can then listen to it, rewind, fast forward, etc. I refused. You can't hire someone based on how they talk to a box.

    Interview

    Takes two weeks, I can't remember anything special about the interview.. I think just like any ordinary interview. Basic questions on qualification and background.. and when we came about the expected salary the interviewer ask 'how much your salary can be lowered?' I just said 200-300 (with heavy feeling in my heart)..but hey, I still got the job, without any pay cut at all! The interview is then followed by an editorial skill

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Pearson (New York, NY).

    Interview

    15 min. phone interview, 45 min "in-person"/skype interview, video cover letter, in person hiring summit.

    15 minute phone interview was basically a screen, checking to see how much you knew about the company before moving on.

    Skype interview was more in depth, asked questions about how you measure success, etc.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Pearson (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Very long process as others have said. Phone screening, then face to face, then the project which was very time consuming, then another face to face. After all that I didn't hear anything for a few weeks before getting turned down for the job. I can't say I didn't learn a lot from the experience though.
