I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.
Interview Details – The process was long and I did not make it pass the aptitude tests. The tests are great for people who are quick on their feet, not for the slow but accurate. Try your best and study some basic algebra ahead of time.
Interview Question – Some of the ethics questions were difficult to answer on the test. One question that stood out was I used to show up late to work, but now I am reformed (true or false). It is difficult to answer this one if you've never been late and therefore have no need to reform. If you answer false, it just looks like you show up late. Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in November 2009.
Interview Details – First, I applied online. Then, I was invited in to take a test. They told me that if I did well enough on the test, they may call someone down to talk to me. I sat in a room for an hour taking a math and logic test, which I apparently passed. They called someone down to talk to me, who effectively offered me the job on the spot.
Interview Question – How many lines was the longest code I've written. Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in October 2013.
Interview Details – Interview was okay, they seem to value detailed responses and enthusiasm, aptitude test can be pretty rough, if you have kept sharp on Math and have a quick mind you should be okay. Otherwise the whole process was pretty easy, will know more if I get the job.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in September 2013.
Interview Details – I was expecting a long process as their biggest competitor took 3 months to get hired, but never expected a cow herding process with an Algebra test. They even give you prep questions to prepare for the testing prior to the onsite testing as they say they realize most need a refresher. I can honestly say I was very successful with their biggest competitor and never needed Algebra to that extent. I should have listened to the reviews on Glassdoor.
Interview Question – Algebra test. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in July 2012.
Interview Details – The interview process is quite simple: you take some tests and if you do not pass, you are sent home. The test is designed for college students and by using it, they aim to weed out professionals with experience -- because they will have to pay them more. I recommend telling the girl at the desk that you were told you would have an interview. Ask specifically to see a recruiter. If she doesn't let you, request her manager. As long as you get to the interview, the rest of the process is not difficult. I think they like to see that you are persistent. The "won't take no for an answer" is a huge part of the culture at the company. Just because you can't do algebra, doesn't mean you don't deserve an interview -- let them see that determined side of you and they should look past your test scores.
Interview Question – The interviews are exactly the same for every position. The recruiters have a list of scripted questions and you answer them. "What's your biggest strength" "What are your weaknesses?" "How long do you see yourself in this position?" "What are your career goals?" They don't go into specifics in terms of questions. It's easy to ace the interview. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There is no room to negotiate on vacation -- you get none the first calendar year and less than 10 your second year. You get about 4 sick days but you are required to have a doctor's note for them. The salary is pretty non-negotiable. They have set ranges and don't stray from that, which is unfortunate considering they are extremely low compared to other companies.
I applied online and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in May 2013.
Interview Details – I originally applied online for a desktop Support position within the company. After interviewing for the position I received an email saying I was not selected for the job. Two weeks later I received a call from the recruiter asking if I was still open to a position at Reynolds and brought me in for another interview for a different position in sales. During this second interview it was determined that I had a skill set better suited for a different position and was asked to come back a week later for a third interview for yet another job. I was quite pleased that they were open to finding a good fit for me within the company. Overall I was quite pleased with the entire process and was kept informed throughout.
Interview Question – As everyone has pointed out the tests you take on site are a bit challenging. This is only a very small piece of the entire process so don't get discouraged by it. Answer Question
Negotiation Details –
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in March 2013.
Interview Details –
Before even being able to speak to a person, I was sent a link to take a very detailed and thorough series of online assessments. It's pretty much just like what everyone else on here has described (personality, IQ, current events, etc.). The next day, I got a call back to interview and had a series of interviews with the same HR person. I had to go and do another assessment online, this one an ethics assessment. I also had to fill out a long-form application which is also exactly as described by people on here. I thought some of the questions were weird at the time and these are the ones that some people are describing as illegal questions (information on parents, spouse, in-laws, and all their occupations and educational backgrounds). It seems like they probably are, in hindsight.
I was supposed to have a Skype interview with the head of the department, but we were both experiencing technical issues, so it ended up being another phone interview. It went really well until the end when he saw my asking salary and indicated it was a little high and that they don't like taking risks, which makes no sense because, assuming an offer, they are asking you to take a risk by leaving your current position for one with their company.
Anyway, they flew me to Dayton, OH and I spent the day there. I had to retake the IQ and personality assessments to make it "fair", in their words. Then, I was taken on a tour and taken to lunch with 2 more HR people who were completely uninvolved with my recruitment. It was also kind of weird that the lunch was in their building cafeteria as I was expecting them to do more to impress me than that. Then, I had a short interview with the Vice President of the department and that went well. The last thing they had me do was to take a drug test.
They ended up offering me $500 less than what I make at my current position and no vacation days in my first year at the company. I was planing on taking it because I was very desperate to relocate back to Ohio (which is where I am from), but ended up finding something else that actually offers a competitive salary and benefits. I had some major reservations, especially after reading some of the reviews on here!
Interview Question – Surprisingly, they asked no questions about programming or any of my development knowledge/experience. Nothing was too difficult. They are very high on raw, natural abilities as exemplified by all the assessments they make you take. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – It was $500 less a year than I was making at the time, benefits weren't too great (no vacation days in the first year), and a lot of the current/former employee reviews on here gave me some reservation. Ultimately, I accepted a competing offer, which was much, much better than this one.
I applied online and the process took 9 months - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in June 2012.
Interview Details – I began by applying online. Then I was directed to take some online assessments. This was followed by an hour's worth of testing at their Dayton, OH headquarters. After I presumably "passed" the testing, I had an interview with a recruiting representative. She really just verified the information on my resume and told me that if someone from the department was available, they would speak with me next. I was asked to fill out another questionnaire full of illegal questions about my family, age, etc. I was told that this would not be used for hiring decisions, but that the department head would want to get to know me better. As it turned out, no one was available (suddenly, after asking all these illegal questions). I was told someone would be in touch the following week but I never heard from them. I tried following up, and received no response. They contacted me out of the blue 9 months later. Very strange. Not sure if I should keep the interview appointment now that I've read all of the reviews on here, though.

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in September 2012.
Interview Details –
you send in your resume, they email you or call you to ask you a few short questions and to schedule a testing time at their facility, then you have to take about 5 online tests (some are timed) and also fill out an application. After you have completed all of that, you must go in and take the last test, the aptitude test. They will send you an email that has a few example questions of what to expect on the test. I highly suggest studying for the math portion. The pattern and sequencing recognition stuff isn't too difficult. After taking your aptitude test, you might be interviewed....you might not. The actual interview itself was really short and easy.
the reviews that i have read on this site are definitely true! It's a privately owned company, so they pretty much just pick and choose whoever they want. You will definitely notice that most of the employees walking around are of a "certain" type. You could have all of the experience in the world and be perfectly qualified for the position, but they won't accept you because they simply just don't feel like it. I would have to sum the place up as trying to join a prestigious club. I have known lots of very intelligent people whom have interviewed there, but did not get any job offers. I'm not trying to trash talk this place, but i just felt like informing others of what to expect. also, everyone was really nice tho, but that's about the only plus i can think of.
Interview Question – they were all pretty easy. "where do you see yourself in 5 years?" "how did you here about us?" None of the questions were even related to my skills for the potential position. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – they spent a lot of time getting back to me so i figured they weren't interested and i had already accepted another job offer already anyway. The pay would've been way lower too.
