    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pearson.

    Interview

    It's a very long process to say the least. Initial call with the territory manager, then in-person interview, then go and do the Pearson Campus Project, speak with other members of the team and finally do an in-person role playing interview.

    Content Producer Interview

    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!

    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.

    Interview

    First one was very technical but fun. Second one was laid back slightly technical. Recived and offer after a few days. Very well done in my eyes and not forcing outdated practices or corporate loyalty demands..

    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.

    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.
