    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.

    Interview Details

    A 30 minute online assessment, an IQ test in person, and five interviews later...I was declined a position at the company. The woman I interviewed with seemed to think highly of my qualifications. The men I interviewed with were arrogant, questioned my knowledge about cars, and even asked about my family and whether I had any children.

    Entry Level Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this position online via a job board. In three days, a Recruiting Coordinator emailed me and said: "We have reviewed your information and would like to proceed to the next step in the process and invite you to our facility in Dayton for an aptitude assessment as well as a possible interview. Keep in mind while scheduling your appointment that the assessment test takes an hour to complete and depending on the availability of a recruiter, you may receive an interview thereafter." I proceeded to schedule the onsite visit 14 days from then. In the meantime, I was emailed links to complete the following online: an Application, Personality Assessment, and Ethics Assessment. I completed these items and then went to the Dayton facility for the aptitude assessment on my scheduled day/time. The aptitude assessment was a three-section logic and reasoning test that took me about one hour to complete. I was unable to complete the tests within the time that was allocated for each of them so I did not feel very confident when I was finished. I exited the computer room that I took the test with about 12+ other people and went to the counter where the coordinator was sitting. She said she was looking at my information and it did not appear that they had any other questions and I would be hearing from them in 3 to 5 business days. I knew right then and there that I was being rejected. Sure enough, 3 days later, I received the following email: "Thank you for your interest in employment with Reynolds and Reynolds. We appreciate the time you spent applying with us; however, we will not be proceeding with your application at this time. Again, thank you for your time and we wish you the best of luck in your career search."

    This experience was obviously not a positive one for me. I spent a lot of time completing their requests and then more time taking a test that is geared toward people with very high IQs and never even received an interview. One's eduction and experience does not seem to count for anything with them...it is as if they believe one's potential is all based off the results of these tests. I do not believe this to be an accurate way to sum someone up. In addition, I felt like the process was very intrusive. I regret that I ever allowed them to get inside my head and waste my time...a lesson learned the hard way.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted within a few days by email. The email stated that they would like me to complete an online aptitude test. I did a quick bit of Googling and found out this was very common with the company and that they company also offered a very low salary for devs. As this was one of the first companies to get back to me, I decided to take their test for fun.

    The test was long and annoying. Basically a 1.5 hour IQ test. Things like mathematical word problems, recognizing patterns in letter strings, number strings, and images. They even had a vocabulary test. Halfway through I stopped caring as you only missed points if you answered incorrectly, not if you left them blank. I left a good amount blank because the time limits are not generous.

    Anyway, I got a call a few days later from one of their recruiting managers asking me a few basic questions, if I was interviewing with anyone else, and what kind of salary I was expecting, and whether I would want to work in Dayton, OH or Texas.. I told her I would prefer Texas and that I wasn't sure what to ask for salary-wise and would like to know what Reynolds & Reynolds offered. She told me junior software devs usually make upper 30's or lower 40's (As in 30,000-40,000) a year. I told her I would want at the very least 50k.

    She said she would let the recruiting team in Texas know and they would get in touch with me.

    I haven't heard back in about 5 days and I am pretty sure I won't hear back because of my minimum salary requirement.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kettering, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Kettering, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.

    Interview Details

    The pre-employment testing, specifically the math portion is a bit extreme. One could certainly justify it if in fact is was validated and resulted in reduced turnover but the turnover is always very high. I would encourage this company's recruiting department to re-evaluate the assessment piece of their selection process. This may or may not occur either as they experience high turnover in that department as well.

    Interview Questions
    • The math portion of the pre-employment assessment testing is difficult unless you've just graduated.   Answer Question

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    4 Aplitude Test, 1 large at home and 3 in the facility. The facility is super nice but rather tough to get past the test for an interview. I would like to actually sit down with another person to explain my skills rather than have some computer tell them if I'm qualified based off a test that is timed and doesn't really relate to the material i applied for.

    Interview Questions
    • The Test seems to get you flustered because of the way it is scored, 1 point for each answer correct 1/4 for incorrect answers and 0 points for unanswered questions, if you don't score high enough on the test they do not move forward with your application   Answer Question

    Junior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Save your time don't even apply. I applied online. the recruiter said there was a couple short online personality trait testing to complete. I was thinking 30 minutes tops. So I started it on this laptop before I went to bed. I started it at about 830 I didn't complete until after midnight. Secondly the buildings at Dayton location is POORLY MARKED. When she told me to come in . Never told which buiding to come to. Never told me where to park. So I parked among the rest of the employees. I walked probably a good mile while it was raining. finally I get to the "recruiter" she reminds me to "do well" because they only take the approx top 10 percent. The test makes no sense. I got turned down but with the turnover problems at Reynolds and Reynolds. Then the testing is weird. I probably had 5 hours of testing. I talked with a friend who said they met with him 4-5 times before they offered him the job. He said the wages aren't that hot either. It would be one thing if they paid 100 k per year. I saw his W-2 I know what he makes(I won't say) but if they offered me NO WAY IN HECK I would accept it.

    Content Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dayton, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dayton, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    All contact will be through email, which will be generic and sent out to all potential employees who make it to the interview process. Leading up to an interview, which is not guaranteed, you must take an extensive aptitude test that asks you a bunch of math word problems and order sequences asking what comes next in the pattern. Afterwards you then sit and wait in a holding area as long as they decide to keep you their, could be over an hour or more, and then one of the recruiters may ask to conduct and interview and will take you to a vacant conference room. In the interview they will ask you what you know about the company, why you want to work there, what you will bring to their organization, and just to talk a little about yourself. A week afterwards you will either get an email asking to set up another interview with someone from the specific department you want to work for or another generic rejection email that is clearly sent out in bulk.

    Interview Questions
    • There was not any questions that were particularly hard. All of their questions were very straight forward as I mentioned in my paragraph about the interview process.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They were pretty unclear with a starting base salary so it is easy to suggest something much lower than what you should be making. Make sure you research what current employees with your job title are making so you are getting paid what you deserve.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dayton, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dayton, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.

    Interview Details

    Met R&R at a college job fair. They were not that aggressive and i felt i drove most of the process. I had nearly 7-8 interviews over about 2 months and looking back should have seen this is how the company as a whole likes to operate. They have a proprietary psych eval and intelligence test that weeds out about 90% of applicants. Most people with prior sales experience aren't willing to go through the song and dance so a lot of recent grads are hired. R&R loves this because they can pay less and treat them worse.

    Interview Questions
    • Intelligence test is designed to not be finished and penalize incorrect answers. It is also rumored that your initial score indicated future promotions, but never confirmed.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very little negotiation, they like to hold all the power. They initially offered me a position I did not apply for (lower lever) and I declined. They called back about a week later and offered the correct and I accepted.

    Customer Training Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dayton, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dayton, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online (emailed my resume) and a few days later I received an email stating I might be a match and included an application and series of tests to fill out. Test were personality and IQ tests that were not really designed to be finished so don't stress about that. A couple days after submitting the tests and application I received a call to setup a Skype interview with a recruiter. After this I was sent another test (assessing my views on drugs and racism) and another application that required much more detail such as Parent's college background etc. At this time I was also setup for a phone interview with a department supervisor in a few days. After that interview I scheduled a phone interview with a department Manager. The next step was to take the IQ test again, but this time with someone watching me (via Skype). This was to make sure that it was actually me taking the test and that I was not using a calculator. Once I passed the tests, again, I scheduled to go the Dayton, OH HQ to have two interviews and a campus tour. The facility is very impressive and has a lot to offer, all of which can be detailed on the company website. My first interview was with the department Director, and after that I had an interview with the Department VP. After my interviews I was given another tour exploring parts of the building not visited before. I was then given an onsite drug test. A few days later I received an offer pending the results of the drug and background test. I politely accepted the offer.
