    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email letting me know they wanted me to come in for testing/possible interview. There were preliminary psych evaluations, "ethics" tests, and IQ tests I had to take before showing up that required a little less than two hours to complete. When I showed up I had to go through more tests! They were much of the same (IQ and personality tests). Mind you I have not spoken to anyone up to this point. Well, I finish up and they tell me to wait out in the lobby, which I figured was a good sign since others were not asked to do so. Well, I go in for an interview with a girl who tells me the position I applied for was already filled and that I could apply for another one...okaaaaaay that sort of thing shouldn't happen. Well I guess their extensive computer testing is like the sorting hat from Hogwartz so who am I to question it? Well I went through a few more interviews after her that were a surprising contrast to the rigidity of the previous portion of the interview process. Mind you, I got a lot of the usual questions so if you go in there well prepared you should be fine as they really were quite personable. Oddly enough, one of the earliest questions I was asked by the first interviewer was about salary range. I didn't know anything about the job itself and yet I was supposed to answer this question! I ended up giving my expected salary, which is at the lower end of the range I found online, and she said the job was at a lower salary (A LOT less). I had come this far so I figured go on. I guess as part of the formal interview you have to fill out the long form application. This is where things got really weird. I was asked questions about smoking, indirect questions about my marital status, and direct questions about my parents...the whole thing felt really uncomfortable as NONE of that has anything to do with my ability to do the job for which I had not even applied for in the first place. Well, I was there so I answered them and was administered an oral drug test right then and there. A few weeks later I received an offer for about twenty percent less than my lowest expected salary range and I tell you what I did my research on that end so what gives?

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I found the company through a campus career website. Seems like an interesting opportunity. They contacted me back asking me to take a personality test which took a little over an hour. The test had a lot of different things on it which I felt were completely irrelevant to the position.

    Later I got a call from one of their recruiters and had a phone interview with her. She was very nice and professional. At the end of the interview, she suggested that I look into a consultant position that they had, so I switched to that. From there I had a skype interview. Afterwards, she sent me a long form application, a background check form, and an ethics test to complete. I am still in the interviewing process but am supposed to meet with the hiring manager now.

    Business Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.

    Interview Details

    They wasted 2 hours of my time by asking me to take an unnecessary test that had nothing to do with my position... only for them to tell me that the position that I am interviewing for has been filled up. They invited me to interview for another position that I didn't know much about. The first interview was resume/ simple behavioral questions. The second interviewer lectured me for 15 minutes about the position that I am supposedly being considered for now. Then after her lecture, she asked me to summarize what she just said. That was it. That was the end of my second interview. Then they had the nerve to call me back twice for my third interview with a director. I know these directors are busy, but get this: the recruiters called me at 5 pm the day before the third interview and wanted me to come in at 10 am the next day. I'm sorry but I have classes and other commitments that I can't skip, not when you call me at the end of the day when I am supposed to show up at 10 the next day for a TENTATIVE interview time.

    Technical Writing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Very automated feeling robo emails with preliminary tests to take (see descriptions in other reviews). Then set up an appointment to take another mathematics type screening (see ASVAB and SAT math prep sections for a review). Frankly, my dear, I do not care to memorize the formula for the finding the hypotenuse of right triangle anymore. No calculator. No "crib sheet". If you've been working as a professional technical writer for all kinds of engineering and technical documentation, why is this an appropriate next step towards an interview? It is the job of the SME to provide clear technical data and for the technical writer to convey it appropriately to various audiences. Geez. Research into the RR interview process reveals that it is a comprehensive screening battery designed by IBM to ferret out techies who might be applying for the wrong positions and steer them elsewhere.

    The management approach is described as something out of the old "Metropolis" classic film - hierarchical and inflexible. Excerpts from the Employee Manual posted online sound as though management thoroughly distrusts and even hates their employees. Degrading!

    I asked the recruiter for a basic salary range for the writing position but received the standard runaround, albeit politely. Further online research seems to state about $38,000 or $18/hr. I don't mind starting a bit down from recent pay grades to learn a completely different documentation model, but not down to this level. Other online posts seem to confirm that there is very little employee development and prospect of an upward path. Once your peg has been place in their round or square hole, you are pretty much stuck there.

    This all seems a shame because the company started out with a bright future and real incentives for employees.

    If you search for Reynolds & Reynolds assessment, sample questions, interview process, or salaries online, you will find the kinds of information I describe above. After evaluating all the factors against this process and company, I cancelled my appointment with them. Who needs this kind ridiculous rigidity and penalizing approach to micromanaging everyone and everything?

    Software Education Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The initial hiring process is interesting to say the least. You have to fill out a few assessments online that ask negatively worded questions. You then have to go into the office to take an assessment on a computer, with about 30 other people cycling in every 30 minutes. I was held for an interview and stayed for hours climbing the ladder in interviews. The questions were pretty generic and if you're trainable, they'll hire you. They try to sell you on how great the annual company picnic is and how they have a cafeteria... Don't be sold. They hire entry-level graduates so they can pay them 30% less than industry standard. Take the job if you're desperate, but don't stay if you can help it.

    Data Center Operations Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.

    Interview Details

    The first step in the hiring/interview process is for you to sit down and take an aptitude test at the company. You'll sit at a computer and take a series of tests similar to parts of the ASVAB and SAT tests you took in high school. Pattern recognition, basic to challenging math problems, word problems, and general testing of situation handling.
    They'll either review your score on the spot and let you know that they'd like to interview you right now or they'll tell you that they'll call you (This is the ruse. They will not be calling you if they send you home after you are finished with the test).
    If there is an interviewer available from any of their locations (College Station, TX, Dayton, OH or Houston, TX for US residents) they'll have you sit in a room and either do an interview in person if the interviewer is on site or they'll do the interview via Skype call. Usually this interview will last about 45 minutes to an hour. Data Center Operators are interviewed by both the supervisor and the manager. Each has their own approach to interviewing.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Series of several Skype interviews and some competency tests. I thought the process was drawn out much more than it needed to be, I don't see a need to have a Skype interview with 4 different people about the same material. Also, I had to take the 2 hour competency tests twice because they wanted it proctored. If a proctored test was that important to them they should have saved everyone some time and just done that the first time. The fact that they were willing to do everything online was a huge plus though, I wouldn't have been able to go through any of the process otherwise.
