Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Pearson.

Interview

Terrible phone interview process. I was contact after I applied online on their corporate website (directed to by our university). The recruiter calls right on the clock, which was good, but she asked me NOTHING about myself. I thought she would have called to discuss my backgrounds and fit with the company, but she was uninterested. Do they hire just anyone? Her first question asked about what I knew about the company and delved into the oddest behavioral questions ever. No responses to my emails and just a generic rejection email couple days later. Couldnt even ask for feedback because she just cut me off.

    Submitted cover letter and resume. First round interview with a current PLDP member within the same month over the phone. Straightforward interview. Not many tricks.

    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.
