Publisher's Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee in Glenview, IL
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pearson (Glenview, IL) in October 2009.

Interview

The hiring and interview process is very lengthy at Pearson, and for many positions a "project" is also required of all applicants. For the Publisher's Rep position, I was ultimately hired after 1 phone interview, 4 in-person interviews, 2 shadowing sessions with current reps, and completion of a "campus project". The "campus project" involved calling on current or potential customers to interview faculty members about their perspective of the publishing industry, the sales process, etc. The post-project write up was then submitted for review along with any insights I learned from the day of "practicing" the job.

Interview Questions

  • The in person interview with the district manager was very straightforward. The sales trainer liked to ask more of the pointless philosophical questions like "what is the most difficult work situation you've been in and how did you handle it?"   Answer Question
