    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at R.R. Donnelley in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Got the interview through a referral. The manager interviewed me first on MRP (which is what the job was all about). He asked for my experience in the relevant area, the positions I had held and my achievements. He was looking out for certain specific points in the answers to his question. He did not seem to be friendly person at all (but now that I know him, he really is)

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Owensville, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Owensville, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at R.R. Donnelley in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Process was not organized - communication was not organized.

    Applied online, 30 days later got a call from corporate setting up a phone interview w/ local HR manager. Local HR manager in charge of 3 locations was uncertain about the process for hiring and could not provide any information about process or next steps / expectations.

    Seemed completely overwhelmed and disorganized, as if they grew too fast thru the acquisitions and were in way over their heads.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    Manager indicated dying industry, and "New Jobs" announced were actually the result of another location closing and them moving units to another plant, rather than truly creating jobs.

    All HR questions were centered around lawsuits. All. Red flag.

    Reasons for Declining

    It was a long-term contract position, paid per hour, with a slight chance moving on as a permanent employee. Hourly wage and yearly salary were on the lower range for the position.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at R.R. Donnelley in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by an HR Manager, who set up the interview with the Site Manager. The HR Manager did not ask any questions so there was no pre-screening. I met with the Site Manager and had a very easy interview. Very casual and simple, basic questions. I was given a tour of the facility and introduced to others in the business unit. I was told the next step would be meeting with the Regional Manager, who was out-of-state. A few weeks later I was invited back for that interview. Again, very basic questions. I was offered the position a few weeks later. Since working there, the interviewing process has become more formal, with behavioral questions added to professional experience.
