    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Pitney Bowes in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was invited back multiple times and interviewed by my VP, the chief officer of my function, my VP's peers and other business leaders. It was mostly behavioral based interview questions. Lots of emphasis on HOW I accomplished what I did, not just what I accomplished. I was given quick feedback and strong encouragement throughout a somewhat long process. I, however, was not actively looking so a longer process was actually very welcome.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plainfield, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Pitney Bowes in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called within 2 weeks to set up a 1:1 interview with the hiring director. Within three days I met him at a hotel near to the job site. There were other people there interviewing for various positions. The interview went very well. So much so that I was asked to complete a phone interview 2 days before Christmas with the Regional VP. This call also went well and I was told they would be in contact. I followed up with thank you letters to both people with which I interviewed. Since I was advised that a decision was going to be made within the next two weeks, I waited for some form of contact. I called after three weeks from my interview date to follow up, yet had to leave a message. To date, it is now the middle of March, I have had no contact from them one way or another. This is very disappointing since I had gotten so far in the interview process. The lack of follow through makes me wonder how either this company or this Director would treat their/his employees.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Pitney Bowes in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Standard initial phone interview which then led to in-person meetings. The in-person consisted of 1:1 with hiring manager, other team members and also group interview to provide breakdown and analysis of the case studies. Expect to complete 2-3 case studies during the in-person sitting. Process can be laborious and the company looks to get as much feedback about their current services and products as they can out of candidates. It's somewhat of a fishing expedition.

    Interview Questions
    • Candidates were given spreadsheets with financials on different business lines and then asked to prioritize which line of business to focus on and which to cut.   View Answer
