    Security Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at R.R. Donnelley in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very unorganized. It took several emails over a period of two weeks to get in touch with the recruiter after receiving an initial email. While having my 1st round interview, I wasn't given theopportunity to ask any questions with HR. When the second round interview occurred, it appeared that the interviewers were very new to interviewing. There would be long pauses after I would answer questions (I assumed that it would only take a few seconds to write my responses). While I admit that this may have not been one of my best interviews, it didn't really have any substance to it and I'm glad that I didn't receive an offer.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at R.R. Donnelley in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was told they wanted to hire very quickly. Interview was mostly just them trying to get dirt on their competitor who I worked for at the time. Kind of came across as arrogant. Had to follow up with them 3 times over the course of a few weeks to check status. Never received a reply. Finally I emailed telling them I was no longer interested, then they replied.

    Premedia Tech Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at R.R. Donnelley in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with the divisional manager and another with the lead analyst. This was followed up with an in-person interview with both of them and another individual. They gave me a tour of the facility and we had nice informal 45-minute or so interview. They essentially went down the list of position requirements to assess my qualifications. It was a no-nonsense approach with relevant questions, a few of a behavioral nature (i.e. how would you approach learning a new application in this situation).

    I was informed 3 business days later I would not be given an offer. I emailed the division manager afterward and inquired of suggestions he had to help me in future interviews, of which he promptly provided feedback.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at R.R. Donnelley.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone and face-to-face interview with the hiring manager. I was surprised that all correspondence was handled by the hiring manager and not by Human Resources. I thought both interviews went well. The face-to-face interview consisted of me, the hiring manager and a team lead. The company only notified me of their final decision after I followed up.
