    Content Producer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hoboken, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pearson (Hoboken, NJ).

    Interview

    I had 3 or 4 phone interviews, then was called in for a series of face-to-face interviews. Leave enough time to check in at the crowded lobby reception and then again at the floor you're heading to. My first interviewer was slightly rude and condescending. The second one barraged me with questions machine-gun style. I thought it had gone well enough but I guess not because I never heard back. I reached out to the hiring manager (Ms. Rude & Condescending) and she flat-out ignored me. Never even wrote back. I dodged a bullet because I would not want to work with people like that. Very unprofessional experience with Pearson. No thank you!

    Human Resources Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Pearson.

    Interview

    Interview process was dependent on the interviewer. No uniform experience of a brand. Hiring managers showed lack of interest in preparation before the interview.

    Interviewers are just in a hurry to select/ reject a candidate for immediate results. Recruiters did not pay attention to making a candidate know about the company to make the candidate feel good during the personal interview.

    Production Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pearson.

    Interview

    After multiple positive interviews and meeting the entire team, I had to follow up multiple times before receiving a rejection email. Like other candidates, I don't think I would have been notified if I hadn't been as persistent. I was told that they went with a more local candidate, which blew me away because I told them I was relocating regardless, and wasn't asking for moving expenses as part of my package.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pearson (Chandler, AZ) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I was emailed by the recruiter, she sent me a survey asking about mu PPT & Excel skills. I was later called by the recruiter. I thought this would be a simple "Tell me about yourself" and verify the information on your resume call. It was a bit more than that. Tell me about yourself, Tell me about a failure that you turned into a positive, How proficient are you with PPT/Excel. How do you handle many priorities?
