    Software Architect Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pearson Online & Blended Learning.

    Interview

    The interview process took a very long time and felt very impersonal at first. It started when I applied online and about a week later I received an invitation to conduct an online interview. This was not an interview but rather a chance to record my responses to about a dozen questions. I felt funny going through this process without having talked to a single person at the company so I contacted their HR department. After being bounced around to half a dozen people I finally got in touch with someone willing to talk to me over the phone, however this person was unable to answer most of my questions about the position or the architecture team. I conducted the online interview anyway. A couple of weeks passed before receiving any type of response. Soon afterwards I was invited to the office for an in-person interview with a follow-up interview 2 weeks later. These interviews finally gave me a chance to learn more about the position, the duties, the company's culture, and benefits. However my meeting with the architecture team was very underwhelming. They were late to the interview, I was hurried through my questions, not given a chance to even complete my sentences, and I was asked many low-level programming questions rather than actual architecture questions. The interview concluded with the absurd question, "If there was a zombie apocalypse and you could call one person, who would it be?"

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rogers, AR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pearson Online & Blended Learning (Rogers, AR) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The initial interview process was conducted "digitally" online, basically a video recording of my answers with no human contact from the other side. It felt very awkward and cold to not have any kind of voice or facial queues from a warm human being. If one passes the digital interview, a phone or in-person interview would be the next step. The awkwardness of the digital interview likely eliminates a huge amount of applicants from the very beginning and quite unfairly, I believe.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pearson Online & Blended Learning in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through a job board and got an email settings an interview appointment. Everyone was very kind, from the secretary in the main level to the interviewers. I got asked basic questions, yet wise and important questions considering the position I was applying for and I never felt uncomfortable when answering or with my interviewers reactions. It was a productive and enjoyable interview.
    They called me about 10 days later and offered me the job.
    So far I have had a great experience with the company and I'm so eager to start working!
