    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Canon USA (Melville, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online and was called in for a an interview, overall I had 4 in-person interviews, which consisted of multiple people. They acted like I was a perfect fit for the job and even requested me to be LinkedIn friends. After my 4th interview I didn't hear back from them. When I finally reached out to HR I received an away message that she was gone for the next month. When I reached out to the person that requested me he said he didn't know if they were going to hire someone in marketing or in IT instead. Wow a month of my time and 4 interviews and it took that long to realize they weren't sure a position was even available? Additionally one of MY questions to them was their reputation for stringing people along, a friends of mine a few years prior also had 3 interviews and never heard back, you constantly see them advertising for "available positions" too. I was annoyed after 4 interviews they didn't have the decency to properly reject me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Canon USA (Melville, NY) in November 2013.

    Interview

    It's a very professional process when you' are at their office. Come prepared! The HR person I met with was very unorganized and put false hope in me getting the job. When she said she would get back to me she didn't for several days, which is hard when you really want the position. She just seemed all over the place and unprofessional. After I didn't get the position she fell off the face of the earth and didn't return my phone call or emails. It would have been nice to receive feedback. I have such a bad taste in my mouth based on how I was treated afterwards.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Canon USA (Lake Success, NY) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I found the interview process to be long and tedious. I met with at least 4 people who really couldn't answer my questions and gave generic responsibilities when describing the position. It was repeatedly mentioned how they were trying to revamp the department but they did not seem to have a cohesive answer as to how they were going to change it.

    Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Canon USA (New Hyde Park, NY) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Three interviews, that went smoothly with a variety of stakeholder staff. Relevant questions were asked, no gotchas or anything like that. All very professional. There is a background check, and then some room for salary negotiation depending upon how badly you are wanted. Advice is to make sure your resume has many accomplishments listed in your past roles, not just what your responsibilities were. Interview the company to make sure you can be happy at Canon.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Canon USA (Lake Success, NY) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Was called for a screening by the HR representative, turned into a pretty in-depth interview regarding my career pursuits and resume. Was told that she wanted to set up a phone interview with the marketing team director (head for the position). Interview was delayed because of some meetings for about a week, but nothing that was their fault. Phone interview was pretty easy and very conversational. Asked standard questions about the resume, why Canon, about my experience with social media since the position is social media based. Took about a half-hour and she was very friendly. Very positive experience. Heard back about a week later with a phone call.
