    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Xerox in March 2010.

    Interview

    My interviews at Xerox consisted of 6 hours of interviews, each interview lasted 1 hour and was conducted by two interviewers at a time. The interviewers were constantly asking questions and did not allow me any time to ask any questions. All of the questions were behavioral questions. The hiring manager discussed the position, but overstated the growth opportunity dramatically!

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was an engineering question that was incorrectly asked which made it difficult to answer.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I had negotiated for more vacation, but the offer letter did not state anything about vacation. When questioned about this, the HR person stated there was another offer letter that was supposed to be sent, but since I had signed the "standard" letter, they only gave me the "standard" vacation. I had to complain to get the negotiated vacation. I never did receive a second offer letter. Ethical?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Xerox.

    Interview

    Many interviewers from several times were involved. Seems like all teams had to agree rather than let hiring manager be empowered to decide. Very nice motivated people but not sure why so many need to interview.

    Interview Questions

    • nterviewed with staff from several different time zones and locations. It took a while because lots of different groups had to weigh in on the decision. Overall very friendly people that took time out to be involved in selecting the correct fit for the role.   1 Answer
