Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pearson (Centennial, CO) in April 2016.

Interview

I have applied online and Pearson contacted me in couple of days. A phone screen was scheduled for the next day. Once I cleared it, there was 1:1 interview, which lasted about 3 hours. I received an offer soon after.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pearson (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    My interview spanned a couple of days so that I could meet engineers and managers. It took a while for them to get back to me. I interviewed with two or three engineers twice. They asked lots of .NET questions and some Design pattern questions, and some HTTP questions. The managers asked me how I responded to different challenges. Everyone was very friendly and professional. Pretty much everyone who interviewed me has left the company since then.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pearson (San Antonio, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Got interviewed by phone and lastly I had to interview myself....yes interview myself. They use Montage interview system. With this system you login from your home and they show you the questions on screen. While the questions are on screen they record your answer with a webcam. It was a pretty horrible experience overall because you are talking to yourself with no feedback from the recruiting team from Pearson since it is a recorded video you are sending to them.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pearson (Denver, CO) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Recruiter pre-screened, then a phone screen with the development manager, followed by a 2-3 hour on-site with members of the team. Not too much focus on syntax, more on process and general domain knowledge. I enjoyed the give and take with some intelligent people. The facility is nice, but developers are in a bullpen environment (not my best working environment).

    Interview Questions

    • At this level in my career, the only hard questions are when they ask me to dredge up some memorized answer that I only needed for a test in college.   Answer Question
