    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pearson (Boston, MA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was emailed by an HR representative requesting a phone interview. The interview seemed to go well and she told me that she would be in contact with me again in the near future to set up a follow up interview with a hiring manager, but I was never contacted again and the subsequent emails that I sent went unanswered.

    Program Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pearson (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    The interview process took place over several sessions. First, a screening by HR. Second, about two weeks later with the director of the group I was interviewing with, a manager, and a program lead. This was about two hours altogether, very relaxed but intensive with a lot of attention placed on how I felt I could innovate the department. Third, about a month later I talked with just the manager I ended up reporting to who had more job description information and was selecting between three final applicants.

    Field Marketing Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pearson (Boston, MA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. Had a phone interview followed by an on site interview the following week. The on site interview was about 4 hours long, where I spoke with about seven different people both on the phone and in person. Each person I interviewed with went over the job description and asked me pretty much the same questions (kind of redundant). After following up twice with them, I still never heard back from anyone with a decision.
