    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Ricoh Americas Corporation in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process went pretty quick once it hit the branch level. Altogether, the process involves a lot of steps. I interview with the branch manager, a second branch manager, and the Regional VP.

    Negotiation Details
    Not much in the way of negotiation. They have the tiers, so if you want more of a base salary, you are committing to a higher quota.

    Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Ricoh Americas Corporation in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had phone interview with Ricoh. The phone interview was pretty uncomfortable. It felt more like an interrogation than an interview. Pretty straightforward questions about you resume. Mainly asked questions as to why you left each job and why do you want to work for Ricoh. I would say this has been the most awkward phone interview I've had.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Ricoh Americas Corporation in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone screening that asked me about my past career experiences. It was a very simple interview on why I would be good for a sales position. Then got a call from the HR department to schedule an interview in the job location. Had the interview with the Sales Director of Marketplace, and got the offer. He asked me very basic questions, and I had met him before at a job fair, so he already knew a little bit about me. We did not get into much detail about other aspects of the position.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really. Just asked about myself, and why I want to be in sales, and why they should hire me.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They just offered me a salary, and I said yes.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Ricoh Americas Corporation in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    One day, two interviews, hired on the spot. I originally had a brief interview/phone screen with their recruiter who then set a day and time for me to interview with the Sales Manager. Upon my 30 minute, shooting the breeze interview, he brought me to the Sales VP's office for an immediate follow-up interview that took another 30 minutes. On my drive home the Sales Manager called me back to offer me a job. Neither of these employees currently work for Ricoh.

    Negotiation Details
    It's a very cut-and-paste salary/comp plan.
