    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Xerox in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Proactively sought for position based on my industry relevant experience. Multiple telephone interviews and then one in-person rapid fire interview day. Seemed extremely protracted process as if the hiring process was not a priority. HR rep deferred every question and action to the hiring manager.

    Interview Questions
    • Requirement to provide current and prior year W-2 suggesting that past compensation was relevant to the hiring position. Never experienced that requirement anywhere else.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Some negotiation but look days to iterate.

    The most common way to get into this company it to know someone. It is very difficult to get hired or advance without having connections that can help you along the way. Foster as many relationships as you can, and be genuine.

    Perl Developer/UNIX Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Rochester, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rochester, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Xerox in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Received a call from a co-worker from long ago who offered me this job on the spot. This is highly unusual, however. As someone who has interviewed others who have accepted jobs at Xerox, the interview process usually consists with a brief phone screen interview followed by a face-to-face interview with multiple people. The last interview I gave involved four people talking to the applicant and asking technical questions to try to gauge her technical skill.

    After we decided we wanted to hire this person, Human Resources took several weeks to get an offer letter sent out.

    Negotiation Details
    Requested a reasonable amount based on salary survey information for people in my field and my request was granted.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Rochester, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rochester, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Xerox in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter for a position they had open. The first round of interviews was with a panel of three people. I believe one of the people I interviewed with was the boss of the position I was applying for, and the other two were co-workers. The questions they asked were scenario-based in the HR field, like "What would you do if a manager called to inform you a worker was hurt while on the job". I found it to feel a little unorganized. The interview started late on there account, and nobody took notes during the duration.

    The second round of interviews were two 1-on-1 conversations with a vice president and another individual whom I was not told who they were. They were both very unstructured, and more a conversational setting.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a difficult situation.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was made an offer, and countered on my offer for more money, to which I had to provide W-2s.
