I worked at Xerox full-time (More than a year)

Pros

They give you a lot of experiance and let you learn first how things should be done. Its great if you are just starting out your career.

Cons

There is very little if any room for growth. They will most likely increase your responsibiltes and not pay you a dime more. They will do this with the excuse that they are going through a hiring freeze and no one is getting a pay increase. Which is probably true, but the hiring freeze has been going on for years.

Advice to Management

Invest in your employees.

    I worked at Xerox full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    No Pros, only a negative experience. The best I can say is the recruiter was slightly charismatic.

    Cons

    Recruiter was interviewing 9 candidates in one hour, exhibiting a "rush-rush" process. The recruiter ran in and out of the doors while scrambling for paperwork. No medical/dental programs were discussed. The starting pay is only $10.00 hourly with an incentive system designed to reduce opportunities for wage increases. They expect candidates to attend drug screenings on weekends if needed. Then, while knowing that I am an HR graduate with knowledge of federal and state laws regarding drug screening policies, the recruiter rescinded the offer stating that I passed the 48-hour time limit. The interview took place on a Friday afternoon. Her rebuttal was that it was my fault for missing the appointment, and that the policy is federally required. When I requested a link to the federal website for this unheard-of policy, she reworded her claim to the policy being a "federal HR" policy of Xerox. In other words, the real answer is Xerox's rigid policy prevents recruiters from extending drug screen timeframes. In fact, the recruiter offered to start training on October 1st, then requested to know if I could start tomorrow, literally!

    Advice to Management

    Please exercise more consideration when you interview overqualified candidates for what are call-center jobs with "dead end" environments. With a rushed candidate-screening process, anxious attitude of getting new hires trained and in the call center seats, no objective procedure for career advancement or compensation, no mention of insurance or fringe benefits, and immediate behaviors exhibiting desire to conceal one's words or intentions, Xerox really has dead weight waiting to be thrown out. The B2B unit is not developing well.

    I have been working at Xerox full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Direct manager is great but there hands are tied so tight that they have no power to do the right thing.

    Cons

    This is a technology division that spends no money on technology and respects there tech people even less. the health plan is Sub par at best for a multi-billion dollar company. this company has proven year after hear that every employee is expendable, not valued and the only thing that matters is the company stock price.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees compensate them fairly and they will be loyal. Until then expect to loose great people and you only have yourselves to blame.
