I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Xerox Canada in November 2013.
Interview Details – Once you submit your resume, they assess you with an online personality/behaviour survey to create some sort of profile on you. You're invited for an interview shortly thereafter before a panel of 2 sales managers. The questions are standard but couldn't help but get the impression that supervisors are inexperienced micro managers. There's a background check, reference request. To be honest, I didn't feel good about the place from the get-go. Corporate, plastic feel with plastic people trying to slug an uninspiring product was the only way I could describe it.
Interview Question – Everything was expected. Unremarkable interview. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Commissions/compensation poor considering what they wanted out of you. Wasn't worth it. I've since got something else more inspiring with better prospects and compensation. They aren't micromanagers too.

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Xerox Canada.
Interview Details – Found job online and applied online. Was contacted back and had initial phone interview about myself and why I wanted to work there. It was a very simple interview, but it didn't seem like the interviewer knew about me or had even read my resume. I had to do a video interview as well where I had to record myself answering questions so they could see how I spoke and if I was a nervous person. Then I came on site for a final interview and was interviewed by five different employees separately for behavioral type questions.
Interview Question – Why do you really want to work here. You have to really sell it here. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview

Negotiation Details – No reason for differing salaries, let them walk away with a final offer and let them know our negotiating elsewhere at a higher number, they will match it.

Interview Details – Phone call with manger then an online ethics/personality style "test". After this you go in for a fact to face interview.
Interview Question – The most difficult question would be "where do you see yourself in 5 years?" Be careful answering this one as it could very well make or break it for you. You don't want to seem as if you are using the position you are applying for as a stepping stone for a year because they will just overlook you and move to the next candidate. Think about it, why would they hire and train someone that will only be working for them for only a year. Answer Question
