Distribution Manager Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds
Interview Details – Quick interview process. Interview took 30 minutes or less. Client move out going on at the same time. The manager didn't really seem focused on the process. I was hired quickly. There were no drug tests or background checks performed.
Interview Question – Tell me about yourself. Answer Question
Graphic Designer Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.
Interview Details – Phone Pre-Screen:
Very quick five question screen to see if you are worth their time and if they are worth your time! Mostly pertains to if you smoke (they are a non-smoking campus) and what your desired work hours are like and things of that nature. It's very easy to get past this initial screening process but they will pass you on to one of the most difficult portions of the interview process where Reynolds and Reynolds will screen out most of their applicants.
When I interviewed with them, they told me this was similar to a portion of a test they give to air traffic controllers and I needed to study for it. It will go over all kinds of types of question, from algebra to definitions. You will be timed and there are a lot of sections to the test (I think it was 14 by the time I was done). Much like testing for SAT or ACTs, you must answer your questions smart or skip them. It is done on a point scale and you get points off for answering wrong, but no points removed for skipping a question. Though, if you only answer one question out of 20, it is probably taken into account as well.
You finally really get to speak to a person about what you can do! Be honest about yourself and your expectations. You can expect it to be like any other traditional interview. If you impress them, they will pass you on to the department where you'll be interviewed by one or two more people that you'd be working with directly. There isn't really an opportunity to negotiate a salary, so make sure you have a base in mind if you really can't accept below a certain amount and be honest with yourself about that base.
They will test your skills so make sure you know what you're doing when it comes to graphic design. It's not difficult if you know your code and have a decent eye for design. You'll be evaluated though by a few different people, but be confident in what you're doing and also, be yourself in your work!
Once you get to this point, if they like you, they'll continue on with a background check and all those things before proceeding to an offer stage. It can take upwards of a month and a half, so be patient if you want to work for them!
Interview Question – Questions on the Aptitude test!! Especially as a designer, being asked corporate business questions or algebra that hasn't been touched since early high school. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation phase. I had my base and my range, but I said for certain I could not go below my base.
They do bring in designers with a very specific range in mind and will pass on designers that are above their high-range if they deem them too expensive.
Software Developer Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.
Interview Details – The interview here just wastes your time. The HR email me and asked me to take a online aptitude test. This will take more than 1 hour. Then going to the company to take a second test, which is just as the first aptitude test. After the test, they told candidates go home and wait their email. One week later, they send you a reject email.
Interview Question – There are too many problems in the second test. Although they are not hard, but really take time. Answer Question
Recruiting Assistant Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds
Interview Details – Long process with lots of interviews and assessments. Had to complete two hours of assessments before interviewing with a recruiter. Then interviewed with supervisor and director. Went to background before offer. Had to complete a drug test that tested for nicotine.
Interview Question – Do I smoke? Answer Question
Software Implementation Consultant Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.
Interview Details – I did all of their interview process in one day. I was at their building for over 5 hours for 3 rounds of interviews. You have to take a test before they will even interview you. It is basically an IQ test. As if passing college wasn't proof enough that you are intelligent. But after that you interview with an HR rep who basically just makes sure you answer the standard HR questions correctly, the division manager, and finally the VP. The VP is very nice, just very quiet during the interview. At the end you take a drug test. If they drug test you, expect an offer. If they don't, you probably won't get one.
Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate, but you definitely can and should. They typically don't pay well.
RSS Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in April 2010.
Interview Details – The process is extensive, but there's a reason. They tend to hire younger people and train them rather than more experienced people. As a result, they provide a paid 6 month training program before you ever hit the field to visit customers, plus they give you a company car, laptop, iPad, and iPhone, all paid for. That's obviously a huge investment, so they need to make sure each candidate is a perfect fit before making a offer.
Interview Question – None. The hardest part is the aptitude test. It measures your ability to learn quickly. They sell hundreds of software packages, and we need to know them all. So the training can be overwhelming to someone not prepared. So this test tries to measure who will be able to keep up before you ever start. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – You can negotiate, but usually only one counter offer will go back and forth. They won't haggle with you over and over. After the second offer if you don't accept, they might pass.
Very Difficult Interview
Traveling Trainer Interview (Negative Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.
Interview Details – I applied using my school website and they sent me an email letting me know that I need to complete several online aptitude tests and reports. The email said that it might take 2 hours to complete the whole thing. I tried singing up for the tests but it just seems so mundane and not worth my time expecially considering the position I was applying for.
I think that they need to upgrade the way their recruitment works because it is not conducive to getting good employees.
Interview Question – None. I did not do the online tests they wanted everyone to fill out. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Because the interview process is riduculous
Account Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.
Interview Details – Met R&R at a college job fair. They were not that aggressive and i felt i drove most of the process. I had nearly 7-8 interviews over about 2 months and looking back should have seen this is how the company as a whole likes to operate. They have a proprietary psych eval and intelligence test that weeds out about 90% of applicants. Most people with prior sales experience aren't willing to go through the song and dance so a lot of recent grads are hired. R&R loves this because they can pay less and treat them worse.
Interview Question – Intelligence test is designed to not be finished and penalize incorrect answers. It is also rumored that your initial score indicated future promotions, but never confirmed. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Very little negotiation, they like to hold all the power. They initially offered me a position I did not apply for (lower lever) and I declined. They called back about a week later and offered the correct and I accepted.
Entry Level Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in May 2014.
Interview Details – Went into the office for assessments and received an interview from HR and then managers. It was definitely a long day but I appreciated that they wanted to get it done all at once.
Interview Question – What would your friends say about you? Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Tech Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.
