Regional Account Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Pitney Bowes in October 2013.
Interview Details – HR was great and set up interview quickly. The interview itself...was 30 minutes of my time spent listening to a Sales Director talk to me about her 20 years of experience in Sales and Management at Pitney Bowes. Very little time was spent on my 14 years of Strategic Account Management and Software Sales experience in same vertical as well as a selling a competitive software solution.
Interview Question – Nothing outside of the normal interview questions. Answer Question
Project Manager Interview (Negative Experience)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Pitney Bowes in August 2013.
Interview Details – Very strange interview - I was not asked many relevant questions by either of the two people I met with. One of them spent an hour telling me what a negative environment the office was. The second interview was odd as well, several negative comments regarding upper management and the way the department is currently organized.
Interview Question – I was asked a wandering, convoluted question about my work style that turned out to be the interviewer's idea of a joke. View Answer
Manager Talent Acquisitions Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Pitney Bowes.
Interview Details – The interview process is long and intense. I have done 2 telephone and 1 one on one and I am not done yet. My final interview consist of 2 hours. Need to really prepare, take the time to research and have a lot of patience.
Recruiting Coordinator Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Pitney Bowes in December 2012.
Interview Details – Applied online and received a phone call about two months later to set up an interview I interviewed with the talent manager. The interview was fairly easy. It didnt seem like they were really prying. More of a conversational interview. I was told that decisions will be made by the end of the week about the position and the prospective employee would be starting 1/1/2013. Of course, I never heard back from them. I called and emailed but to no avail. I'd rather them just honor their word as far as getting back to me.
Interview Question – Nothing really hard. Answer Question
Account Executive Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)

Interview Details – Standard interview process. Several phone interviews and then a face to face interview at corporate HQ in Stamford
Interview Question – Nothing stands out. They asked about previous quotas and experience in software sales (insurance vertical). View Answer
Marketing Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Pitney Bowes in October 2010.
Interview Details – Standard initial phone interview which then led to in-person meetings. The in-person consisted of 1:1 with hiring manager, other team members and also group interview to provide breakdown and analysis of the case studies. Expect to complete 2-3 case studies during the in-person sitting. Process can be laborious and the company looks to get as much feedback about their current services and products as they can out of candidates. It's somewhat of a fishing expedition.
Interview Question – Candidates were given spreadsheets with financials on different business lines and then asked to prioritize which line of business to focus on and which to cut. View Answer
Customer Service Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Pitney Bowes in December 2010.
Interview Details – I applied online and was called within 2 weeks to set up a 1:1 interview with the hiring director. Within three days I met him at a hotel near to the job site. There were other people there interviewing for various positions. The interview went very well. So much so that I was asked to complete a phone interview 2 days before Christmas with the Regional VP. This call also went well and I was told they would be in contact. I followed up with thank you letters to both people with which I interviewed. Since I was advised that a decision was going to be made within the next two weeks, I waited for some form of contact. I called after three weeks from my interview date to follow up, yet had to leave a message. To date, it is now the middle of March, I have had no contact from them one way or another. This is very disappointing since I had gotten so far in the interview process. The lack of follow through makes me wonder how either this company or this Director would treat their/his employees.
Interview Question – Give an example of how you directed a project from inception to implementation. Answer Question
