    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at IKON Office Solutions PLC.

    Interview Details

    I submitted online and was acknowledged via phone call. I had an initial phone call screen and then met face-to-face in a panel interview setting. Then I was asked to submit to several question online and was then asked for a second face-to-face. I think this was to insure I fit in to their culture.

    Territorial Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albany, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albany, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at IKON Office Solutions PLC in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had a great phone interview, however, I was very late because they had moved their office. I was actually disappointed in myself. The interview was with a DM who was probably one of the more competent, intelligent and professional people I'd met with on my job search in general. Despite being late, he met with me anyway, and although he didn't offer me a job, I learned a lot from our discussion. I could see that IKON was a very professional, tight and organized company and I learned from him that the commision based salary for a sales rep was extremely lucrative (100k which was confirmed to me by a sales rep later on). Kind of kicking myself I didn't prep more for this interview op, but it taught me a valuable lesson. I had actually been dumbing myself down after a half dozen lackluster interviews with very inept management personel, but this was an employer that valued intelligence and posessed it, also.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at IKON Office Solutions PLC in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    1st round was a 1/1 interview where I was told I would be making the 2nd round (panel) and would hear back the next week. Next week came and no phone call so I followed up and he said that they were running behind but I would hear something soon. The next week came and I followed up again and this time he said he would call me back in a couple of days. He called back and told me they had so many good applicants that he needed to do another round before the panel interviews. I went in for the 2nd round and they brought in this guy from another department that started really grilling me for some fast answers to vauge questions. When I tried to ask for clarification he got angry and told me to just answer the questions. After I did he left and the orig interviewer told me that they had to do that to bring in someone to see how I handled it. Still waiting to hear if I made it to the final (hopefully!) round.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at IKON Office Solutions PLC in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very laid back. It went very smoothly and I was told that she was going out of town the next week and would give me a call to set up my second interview when she returned. I never heard anything back so I waited about 2 more weeks and emailed. I thanked her in the email for taking the time to interview me and asked if I was still being considered for the position. The reply I received didn't answer my question. It just said "We are still in the interview process."
