Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Pearson (Boston, MA) in April 2015.

Interview

Got the call from HR two weeks after applied. She barely asked me anything, just like "how is your job searching?""Are you still available". Then she told me to be onsite the next week. The onsite interview lasted 30 minutes, two managers asked me about some basic Java, SQL questions. The whole process was smooth and comfortable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pearson in January 2013.

    Interview

    A contact from a third-party recruiter and associated hassles, then a phone screen with the team, then a short in-person interview. The interview was a few personal questions and light technical questions, then FizzBuzz. Somewhat non-standard and easy for an entry-level developer interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Pearson (Iowa City, IA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I applied through campus job fair. I got called 1-2 weeks later for phone screen interview. They basically asked behavioral questions. Then, I was invited to their facility in Iowa City. During on site interview, they did not even test my technical ability. Every interview was just about behavioral. There was one aptitude test too. They basically test your pattern matching skills. It is a great company though. It is the largest education company in fact. I have been expecting the result for 2.5 weeks. The recruiter promised to get back to me in 1 week. But it's been 2.5 weeks and they still haven't made any decision yet. I am not sure what they are considering. But, I just hope I can get an offer from them in the future.
