    Editorial Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pearson (Upper Saddle River, NJ).

    Interview

    It was a long drawn-out process, mainly because the HR recruiter told me to apply for a position for which I was overqualified. Eventually everything worked out, but the process would have been a lot shorter had I been able to apply directly to the position myself (and there were several options within different lists). The HR recruiter was great at following up when initiating the interview process, but failed to follow up after the interview had taken place.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Pearson (Upper Saddle River, NJ) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted resume and cover letter. Heard back a week later requesting a day and time for a computerized video interview. During the interview, there wasn't anyone on the other side, which was a bit weird - it was just me watching myself answer the typewritten questions on the screen. Submitted the video and could rewatch. Received feedback on the video a few weeks later and an offer.

You will interview with the hiring manager, regional manager, general manager and likely shadow a current rep.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I was given an offer letter and if I didn't sign it as it I would not receive the job. I was a current Pearson employee at the time of my hiring and it was a company side salary move. They were not allowed to give me more apparently.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pearson (Upper Saddle River, NJ) in March 2012.

    Interview

    After getting the offer, I thought they already liked me (from resume) before calling for an on-site. After I submitted resume to HR, HR arranged an on-site pretty quickly and then a phone interview for the next week. After on-site talking with my direct supervisor, I talked to another member of the team the following week. All of the processes were very easy. They were very polite, professional, and nice.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pearson (Upper Saddle River, NJ) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a phone screening the week of. The phone screening lasted 20 minutes tops and was just a background check of my resume, some details about the position, and then answering questions I had. Within a few days, I was invited to a 1:1, in person interview at the nearest location. My interviewer took me around the Pearson office, informed me of some current projects, and generally just chatted with me about education and the industry. The last step was 2-days of in-person interviews with other interview candidates.
