    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pearson.

    Multiple rounds of interviews conducted over an approximately 8-week period. First screening with HR, then with District Manager, Regional Manager and VP of Sales.

    The final step in the process was a mock campus project.

    Interview

    It was one on one meeting with the on-site manager. I got hired right after the meeting. It was quick and simple. But we have to take an open book test every year.

    Easy-going and straight to the point. As long as you meet all of their requirements you're all good to get the job. You'll talk to HR first before meeting the manager of the testing center you are applying for. The manager at my particular location was very friendly

    Manager, Customer Success Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Pearson in December 2020.

    Interview

    I would love to describe the interview process, however their ATS, TALEO, is horrible. I've attempted to apply to two separate positions via TALEO and both times the system has timed our or otherwise prevented me from completing the process.

    As a candidate, this is completely unacceptable and frankly, if I see an employer who uses TALEO as its ATS, that's enough for me to move along.

    Employers: If you're using TALEO as your ATS you are missing out on some amazing candidates because TALEO is a horribly antiquated ATS system, full stop.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pearson (San Francisco, CA (US)) in December 2020.

    Interview

    I was called by the corporate office in MN, but I live in CA, and my interviewer miscalculated the time difference. Other than that, it was fairly straightforward. They will ask you for your desired salary. Keep answers brief, but have some anecdotes in mind.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pearson.

    Interview

    Terrible. Recruiter only had some questions to ask and rushed through the interview to get done as quickly as possible. No explanation of job. Admitted to not having my resume or information in front of her. No chance to explain my background or knowledge. It was apparent there was no interest in getting to know the candidate.
