Account Representative Interview

Account Representative
Dayton, OH

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Standard Register in August 2011.

Interview Details – Fairly standard interview/hiring process. Was asked to do a mock cold call to hiring manager. Took a personality test as well which they use for future promotions which is not the best practice since people can change once taking the test.

Interview Question – Had to do a mock cold call. Was sent over information regarding an offering and was told to try and secure a meeting based on no training and a 3 page brochure that failed to mention the title of the offering.   Answer Question

Staff Accountant Interview

Staff Accountant
Dayton, OH

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Standard Register in February 2010.

Interview Details – They like to recruit from Kforce. There were two one-on-one interviews in the initial interview. Afterward HR will call if they are interested and generally have you back for a second interview. They will have you take a test to see if you will be successful in your position. My department was very concerned with personality when hiring. They didn't ask many questions about what I knew about the company. Much of the interview was behavioral

Interview Question – What do you have to offer this company?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There wasn't a negotiation phase for me. I accepted the offer they were making through my recruiter.

Difficult Interview

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
Dayton, OH

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Standard Register in January 2010.

Interview Details – They start the 1:1 interview asking about your high school experiences. Then on to your college years & etc. Being someone out of high school for almost 30 years, I found this to be a bit silly. Especially since there were very few questions regarding my expertise in my field. In my opinion, they wasted valuable time with these questions. After 30 years, it was difficult for me to remember my GPA. I wonder why they think this information is relevant after 30 years? Anyway, it was a strange interview. The HR rep was great during the initial recruiting process but everything changed with the 1:1 interview. It seems that some people want to step into the new millenium and think progressively but others want to play the old games with the interview process

Interview Question – What was your biggest accomplishment in high school?   View Answer
