I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Ricoh (Saint Louis, MO) in July 2015.
I applied online for Inside Sales Account Executive position and was contacted by a recruiter shortly after to schedule a face to face interview. Interview started with one manager with another manager joining the interview shortly after. After both spoke with me, another team of managers interviewed me and told me I would hear from somebody shortly. A couple of days later I was presented with an offer and am comparing to other offers I received for similar positions as the base is lower than comparable positions with other companies.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Ricoh (San Diego, CA) in May 2015.
Once my resume was submitted, I immediately received an email requesting me to provide some additional information directly to the company's application site. Following the full applications process, I received another email, directing me to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was ~15 minutes. This was the preliminary interview.

I applied online – interviewed at Ricoh (Tucson, AZ).
The interviewer called to schedule a phone interview with me. On the day of the interview, I did not get a call. I called her office after 15 minutes and was directed to voice mail. I left a message and my contacts and never got a reply. I followed up in the next few days and all I got was voice mail. I traced her supervisor and told about my experience. I got a call from her afterwards with no explanation and I informed her that I was not interested anymore.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at Ricoh (Columbus, OH) in February 2015.
I will never work for Ricoh simply because of their long and drawn out interview process. I was told it would be a three round process and got shifted around to two different office locations and got interviewed FIVE times before I just told them I was no longer interested. I got told the process would take three weeks, it took FOUR MONTHS. I interviewed with FIVE different people, it was as if they had no clue what was going on, and I had to explain myself and answer almost the same questions with each person EVERY SINGLE TIME, it was like they didn't care to communicate with each other at all (three from one office, two in another) about their candidates. Three out of five of my interviews were LATE by at least 15 minutes or more, I should have just walked out the second time it happened, but I gave them one more chance. I had to follow up multiple times with my recruiter to keep the managers on track, it was a horrible mess. Prepare for the worst with this company. Interview questions were on the fly as if they weren't even prepared for me at each one. Two times the manager's phone went off during my interview and in the middle of one of my answers he STOPPED me to answer it, and talked on the phone in front of me! VERY unprofessional people here, they don't care about you as an individual, they know their sales roles have high turnover. If this is the impression Ricoh gives to their candidates, then it's best to run away as fast as you can.
- Most questions were pulled out of thin air (name three strengths/weaknesses, etc), and very very unoriginal. Very corporate-type generic questioning. Prepare to repeat yourself numerous times as their managers don't bring anything to take notes on you. Answer Question
- No Offer
They came on campus, and I dropped my resume. After that, they called me in, and told me I had an interview. The interview was fairly casual, as we were just in a building atrium
- How would you sell this pen 1 Answer
- Declined Offer
Interview was very extensive and seemed a little bit overboard. Put together a powerpoint presentation and had to sell myself to the company. Not too bad, second interview was to a manager and was a little more intense. Not enough pay for the job roles.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Ricoh (New York, NY) in September 2014.
Two interview process. Last interview is a four hour field ride. At that point they want to see if you are going to complain because the position is physically demanding. That is also when they are going to ask you if you have any concerns or questions about the job.
- Where do you see yourself in a year? 1 Answer
None. Take it or leave it.

I applied online – interviewed at Ricoh (Huntington Beach, CA) in September 2014.
Very customer friendly and polite interview process. Told me I would receive two emails later that day concerning the job. I only received one so far? I really was impressed with the questions and the kindness of the interviewer.
