    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Ricoh Americas Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Talked with recruiter at first, then 1:1 interview and then it seemed like forever to hear back after the interview. The process had some communication gaps between the recruiter and sales manager.

    Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ricoh Americas Corporation in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone screen interview with HR/Recruiting (which Ricoh outsources to ADP). This was more of a "checklist" type interview confirming the information I included on my application ... plus a few other questions. One question, which I found interesting, was "How far do you live from the Ricoh office?"

    A week later, I met the Hiring Manager, in his office. We were scheduled to meet for thirty minutes; however, our interview session lasted one hour.

    My final interview took place a few days later with the Regional Director. We were scheduled to meet F2F; however, he was out of town, so the interview was conducted over the phone. It lasted for approximately 45 minutes.

    A week later, I was given a verbal offer ... which I accepted. The written offer was e-mailed to me three days after I accepted the verbal offer. Please note, all Ricoh offers are contingent upon passing a drug test.

    Phone, in person, and ride a long. It was very easy for me. Copier company has over 65% turn over so they can't scare people off too much.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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.

    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.
