    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kyocera (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Total cluster from the get go; HR sent out conflicting and incomplete information on the interview schedule, times, dates, people. Phone screen followed by panel interview and then a promised/scheduled/rescheduled call with a general manager. Clearly, the company does not understand that HR is the first, public face to potential employees. Run the other way

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kyocera (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 2 local managers first. They were more interested in that I went to top school than my experience.

    Next I was interviewed by the VP of sales. He asked me just a few basic questions about the timeline of my CV.

    Finally, I was interviewed by the President of Kyocera America. This guy was very impressive, going over my history with a fine toothed comb. I could really feel he truly cared about the quality of each person Kyocera was hiring - impressive for someone of his title/role (He was recently let go in a merging process of One KII).

    Receptionist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kyocera (San Diego, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    There was a 25 minute phone interview and then a week later I went in for a face to face interview with about 5 people. It would have been 6 people but one of them couldn't make it.

    I was pretty excited about the face to face interview, since the phone interview went so well. But as the interview went on, I found myself thinking that I really don't want to work here. I first met with an HR rep, the same on I had the phone interview with. She gave me a low down on how the interviews were going to go down. First part was to test my excel skills and phone skills. I had an excel doc to fill out and interpret and then randomly the phone rang and I had to assist an upset customer (an employee pretending). That part was fine. Then I met with who would be my supervisor. He was nice and friendly and gave me the run down on what the job responsibilities would be. While he was talking I came to the conclusion that they are looking for one person to do jobs that 3-4 people would do.

    After our conversation I met with 3 people who I would not be answering to at all but I guess they needed to be in on the interview process. While sitting with them, it was very clear that I didnt want to work there. One of them in particular kept asking me about why I previously worked 2 jobs at once, why I left a ADMIN job for media jobs if ultimately I was going to end up going back to ADMIN type jobs etc. etc. I just got this vibe that she was upset with me for following my dreams and being determined to work 2 jobs at once. The vibe was weird and a little stand-offish. I felt like I was being talked out of the position, which is probably why i felt I didnt want it, WHILE I was being interviewed. They didnt offer me the position and I'm glad. I can see why the current individual in the position is leaving after being there for 6 months.. Good luck to who replaces her.
