    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Thurmont, MD) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Ask what my previous job was and if they saw fit I was hired on the spot and put to work that very day. The interview process was very very simple and easy. All you needed was to pass a drug test they have on site and that was about it.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Chicago, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The presentation of the position was very professional yet comfortable. Interview was a day of presentations on the company and the position. Presenters and trainers were very friendly and easy to talk to. Overall, company seemed to really care about their employees.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview was with 2 higher ups that were not very active in the presentations of the company and the sales position. One interviewer was professional and very intelligent to talk to. That interview consisted of testing one's knowledge in the world of sales as well as strategies. The other interviewer was the complete opposite. Very relaxed to the point of being unprofessional. Questions seemed to come off as an attack.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I had a telephone interview with HR in response to an ad I submitted a resume to. The second call was to set up the interview. I interviewed the following week with 3 managers at the client site. I felt as though the interview went extremely well. I met three managers, they discussed what I'd be doing, and even showed me the center where I"d be working. It has been six weeks and I haven't heard anything. At week 4 I sent a nice note thanking HR for the interview and asking for the status of my application. I have had no response - possibly due to the holidays - but six weeks is six weeks.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Nashville, TN) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I was phoned by their recruiting office in Illinois stating that they saw my resume online and if I would be interesting in an interview (I'm in Nashville by the way) at their location here in Nashville TN. A time was scheduled and I showed up for the interview. The manager was not very friendly never really. Either she was a germaphobe or she was racist.- she acted like she didn't even want to shake my hand. She has an attitude from the moment we met.
