Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
Sacramento, CA

I applied online and 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

Premedia Tech Analyst
Portland, OR

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – Nothing stands out...most were pretty straightforward   Answer Question
