I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in April 2015.
Received an email from HR to schedule an on campus aptitude test. Once the date for testing is confirmed I was asked to complete an online assessment and application.
The at home took about an hour and the on campus test took another hour. Received an email saying they will not continue with the process. Guess I didn't "pass" the test.
The whole process is a huge waste of my time and I was not even asked for an phone interview.
- the aptitude test has 3 sections, pattern recognition, shape/IQ test and applied algebra Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds (Houston, TX) in September 2014.
Interview was about a 3 week process. Started with an email to take an online aptitude test. Following the test, I was asked to do a followup interview with a recruiter via Skype. That was followed by a Proctored test via Skype with the same recruiter. I then met with two hire ups in the department I would be working in (a manager and a VP). This was followed by a face to face with who would be my supervisor. Since this position is a traveling one, I met him at a Starbucks close to my home. This too went well and I was then contacted a day or two later to come to the Houston office for a final interview. I then met with the manager and VP of the department from my original Skype meeting as well as a quick sit down with the VP of the company. They paid for my gas (74 a mile) for the whole trip and even made sure I had arrangements to stay in town. A few days later I was offered the job. If you make it to the home office and they do a drug test (THIS IS A TOBACCO FREE COMPANY), congrats, you should be in the clear.
Should you be offered the job, DO NOT COUNTER THE OFFER!!! I have spoken to many people who have done so and Reynolds will immediately retract the offer.

I applied online – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.
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.
I did not negotiate, but you definitely can and should. They typically don't pay well.

The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds (Memphis, TN) in May 2012.
I had two phone interviews - one with HR and one with a regional manager. They were straightforward, quintessential interview questions. Describe your experiences, strengths, weaknesses. Why do you want to work for R&R, & what do you understand to be the work of the position/company? The company culture was difficult for me in that the position was working from home as a field consultant. I didn't like that and wasn't into the idea of working with automotive dealerships. The conversation with the regional manager was about an hour and a half (!!!), so all signs would point to a positive outcome. That wasn't the case, and since it was so long, I was confused on what they wanted to see from interviews.

The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds (Houston, TX) in September 2011.
I am a recent graduate. Early in the summer Reynolds and Reynolds contacted me to start the interview process but after realizing I did not graduate until December, they put my resume back on file. They contacted me again in October and asked for a phone "interview" to answer a few questions. Questions like "Are you willing to relocate", or "This position may require using a company vehicle, do you have any previous citations". At the end of that "interview" they said they would get back via e-mail on whether or not they wanted to continue in the interview process. I received an e-mail saying nothing more than I was not a good fit for what they were looking for. I would have appreciated any type of reason for why.
- None of the questions I was asked were legitimate interview questions. The most difficult one was do I have a driving record. 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds (Houston, TX) in June 2011.
4 interviews: HR recruiter, Manager, Director, VP
Asked loads of illegal questions such as "Are you married?" etc.
In between the interviews, there were many tests that I had to take. I took a 3 hours assessment at home, then went into the HR department there and ended up taking the exact same test again. After this test, had an interview, then went back to take another test, then another interview. They said I was only going to be there for 30 minutes, I ended up being there for 7 hours. Fortunately I had no other obligations that day so I was able to stay, but it would've made the interview process so much more complicated if I needed to leave. Some warning that it could take a few hours would be appreciated.
- Can't remember any specific questions as this was almost 2 years ago now. They just kept asking me things about my personal life. They also misled and misdirected with their answers to my questions, which I didn't find out until a few months into my employment there. Answer Question
None, I got the feeling that any sort of negotiation was off the table

I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds (Houston, TX) in May 2011.
It was a long process crammed into a very short space of time. I applied online and took an online aptitude test, then the next day received a phone call inviting me for an interview. I went a few days later and took another aptitude test, and then yet another one which turned out to be the same one I'd taken online a few days ago. I then had an interview with someone from HR, before they asked if I could stay and speak to a Manager. I then spoke to a Director after that, and then they asked if I could come back in 2 days time to interview with a VP. Each of the 4 interviews lasted about 45 minutes each. They said all the right things and made the company sound great, but unfortunately it wasn't all as good as it seemed, but that's been summed up in lots of other people's reviews.

No room to negotiate. I know someone who applied there and negotiated for $3,000 higher in salary and was immediately told her offer had been revoked.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds (Houston, TX) in May 2011.
Contacted by a recruiter, she asked basic questions about resume and invited me to take Personality test where she claimed that there wasn't a "Pass/Fail". It was just to see where you could be placed with the company. Upon completing the test, I spoke with another representative and he asked a few questions and explained that the position required travel 65% of the time (which wasn't noted within the details of the job ad). I told him that I had to think about that and he said someone would be in contact with me. I few says later, I received a "turn-down" email.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds (Houston, TX) in February 2011.
I was referred by a friend of a friend in early February, and much like what was discussed in other reviews, it began with a short phone screening to make sure that I was eligible to be hired (non-smoker, college graduate, etc). They scheduled a date and time for me to show up on location to take their IQ/Personality test, which I felt I aced. I finished all the sections on time, and skipped the questions I was unsure of.
I was immediately told to wait in an interview room where I met with a recruiter, who steered me towards applying for the Implementation Consultant job. She stressed that it would require a lot of travel, and asked me about my personal and career goals before telling me that she was interested in moving on to the next step in the interview process. I was asked to take yet another personality test, consisting of moral value questions, before being thanked and sent home.
Within a week, I received a call from the same recruiter to schedule a second interview with the manager of the department in which I was applying. The interview went very well, and I expressed my enthusiasm about the position, why I felt I was an ideal candidate, and my career goals. He thanked me for my time and the receptionist told me I would receive a decision within 3-5 days. 2 days later an email arrived thanking me for my time and interest, but that I would not be hired at this time. Honestly, I can't figure out why, as I felt that every step of the interview process went swimmingly.
