    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Pitney Bowes in January 2013.

    Interview

    I called up Pitney Bowes after I saw an ad for hiring. I called to come into a job fair that was happening. Once at the job fair I meet 3 different managers at separate times but all asked the same questions. After an hour or so they thanked me and I did not hear back until a week later with an offer.

    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pitney Bowes (Stamford, CT) in December 2012.

    Interview

    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.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Pitney Bowes (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pitney Bowes (Minneapolis, MN) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Interview process was fairly painless. Two interviews, that were helpful and insightful in learning the aspects of the job. Hiring manager was great. HR non-existent.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult aspect of getting hired was the background check. Only place I have ever worked that wanted copies of my diplomas and actual tax returns to prove salary. Even thought the base salary for this position was about one third of what I had been making.   Answer Question

    NO negotiation. Vacation was take it if you think you can.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Pitney Bowes (Stamford, CT) in January 2012.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pitney Bowes (Shelton, CT) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter and had about half hour discussion with them. They called me back for an in person interview. I spoke with three different people separately, on person who had that job, a product manager and the hiring manager. They each asked me questions and if I had any. Probably talked about 45 minutes to each of them. They never asked about salary (thought that was odd, but looking back is probably good, they know the range they are willing to pay and aren't going to influence it up OR DOWN based on what you say). They called back a couple days later with package offer. I was too dumb to negotiate at the time because to me it was good money, so I was a bit behind everyone else in the same position.

    Interview Questions

    • The typical: Why should we hire you? What are your greatest strengths? What do you consider to be your weakness? No weird questions.   Answer Question
