    Inside Sales Client Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Spokane, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spokane, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Pitney Bowes in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume for review. Within three days I was emailed by a representative that I was to be interviewed within the week by Pitney Bowes. The interview took place on my school campus in a board room and was proctored by three different people: a department supervisor, a recruiter, and the site manager.
    First questions were all related to my personal resume and for further understanding and drill down of my responses.
    The questions that followed related to the job and its requirements as well as inquiries into how I saw myself fulfilling the needs of the position.
    After questioning I was surprised that the manager began to open up very candidly about the coming changes and possible bumps in the road I would sense during training and after being hired on.
    Once we all discussed the new face of the company, they began explaining the compensation and what to expect in terms of culture and experience.
    Overall I truly enjoyed their natural and non threatening approach to interviewing and felt more confidant about the company after meeting three upper-level employees.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Pitney Bowes.

    Interview Details

    It was a 30-45 minute long interview, where the first part of it was mostly your standard behavioral questions, nothing out of the ordinary. Then the second half was a few technical questions, nothing entirely difficult, just some basic analog and digital electronics questions and a little design question.

    Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Shelton, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Shelton, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 months - interviewed at Pitney Bowes.

    Interview Details

    I got a referral. Brief and unremarkable phone interview followed by an on site presentation I was asked to make. They were almost too impressed with the technological aspects of my presentation which were hardly remarkable and not really the point of the presentation.
    Over 2 months passed between interview (beginning of August) and offer (mid October). Offer included a start date over 3 months later (last day of January.)

    Interview Questions
    • What would you physically need to reproduce your presented work. At first I thought that this was the 'trick question' to verify that I had actually done the work when in fact they had no understanding of it (the process or technology.)   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The offer seemed ideal as I thought what a great way to start. Sadly, changes in mgmt over the next year killed both enthusiasm for the work and the desire for a truly creative outcome.

    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Pitney Bowes in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a phone call about two months later to set up an interview I interviewed with the talent manager. The interview was fairly easy. It didnt seem like they were really prying. More of a conversational interview. I was told that decisions will be made by the end of the week about the position and the prospective employee would be starting 1/1/2013. Of course, I never heard back from them. I called and emailed but to no avail. I'd rather them just honor their word as far as getting back to me.

    Senior Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Stamford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed 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.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Pitney Bowes.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed for a sales representative-northern California position at Pitney Bowes. Submitted resume online and received an email and call from a recruiter in less than two weeks - the recruiter was great: answered all my questions and seemed very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I eventually received an in-person interview at a fairly generic office in San Jose. I liked the interviewer/manager but felt the less-than-clean office and general subdued nature of that particular branch was underwhelming. Weighing these facts with the overall travel that the job entailed let me not to accept the offer.
