    Copier Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pacific Office Automation in May 2016.

    Interview

    Ive been trying to get a job here twice now and it seems they have rediculous high standards. First time they just gave me a phone interview and then they never retured my calls. Second time i had a phone as well as 2 live interviews and again they never returned my calls. It would a great place to utilize my skills since i have 4 years in repair and customer service. I called in twice a week for a month to see if i got the job and i get ignored. I understand if you cant send a rejectio letter to everyone but not returning my calls after 3 interviews is straight up disrespectful. I would hae been fine if i got a call or email that i didt get the job so i could move on with life.

    Declined Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Office Automation in January 2013.

    Interview

    Sent my resume in and received a call the next day. Scheduled an interview the following week. Went in, was asked questions of my background, etc. Pretty easy experience and then took a personality test. Overall process took about 2 hours. Was contacted a week later for another interview with a manager. Then went on a ride along and the type of business was not for me.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Pacific Office Automation.

    Interview

    I went in for an interview with these guys and they made me do one in-person interview, then go on a day long excursion doing cold-calling and then they finally had a last interview where they told me that the base salary they advertised on the add was not what was offered. It's actually a recoverable draw...like a loan that they provide. You then have to pay back the money they loaned you using commissions. The manager was trying to tell me how this was a salary, but I am not stupid. I got a feeling from this that this company is pretty sketchy overall. I would not want to work for people like that.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because they basically pulled a bait and switch with the salary amount.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Office Automation.

    Interview

    The interview process was tedious. First, there was an hour long conversation with the manager, followed by an hour long personality assessment. Since I did well on the assessment (which the results took almost a week to come back) I was invited on a ride along. This unpaid working interview took 4 hours of my time and was then followed by another meeting with the manager. If you go on a ride along be aware that you will be required to walk into an office, introduce yourself, and ask for the office manager. Almost like prospecting for them. Please also note, they probably already call on that place of business, they are just testing you. Unless you are serious about working 12 hours a day, 5 days a week, I wouldn't recommend anyone wasting their time with the process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Office Automation (Beaverton, OR).

    Interview

    Online application followed by in person interview. If they like you well enough they invite you back for a tedious personality test which they use to make their decision. They promise to get back to you either way but never do. No integrity.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pacific Office Automation (Seattle, WA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    This company is a joke. DOES NOT value their employees what so ever at all! To the point that they take "your" time and make you do all these things such as an hour and a half exam, yet don't have the common courtesy to even call you back like they said they would.

    Mind you, this is after they agree to move forward with you. Pacific Office Automation is only concerned with protecting their own interests and you can't help but feel like your not good enough when treated in such a manner.

    I can tell you that I will be declining the offer....thank you very much!

The interview was simple, I was asked one behavioral question then we talked for awhile, then i was offered a position. I accepted it.
