    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at R.R. Donnelley in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was told they wanted to hire very quickly. Interview was mostly just them trying to get dirt on their competitor who I worked for at the time. Kind of came across as arrogant. Had to follow up with them 3 times over the course of a few weeks to check status. Never received a reply. Finally I emailed telling them I was no longer interested, then they replied.

    It was very laid back without an official interview process. Things have changed now though as you'll be lucky to get an interview because they never get around to actually interviewing applicants

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at R.R. Donnelley.

    Interview Details

    RRD likes to bring new employees on in a temp-perm basis. Interview process was pretty straightforward. Met with hiring manager for a round of googled interview questions and then had a phone interview with department head that was more of a loose conversation about past experiences and future career goals.
