    Tax Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Just introduce yourself and walk through your resume. There was nothing too complicated. You have to present yourself and just have a strong ambition. It looked like a really fun place to work since the interview was so laid back. I am sure we all hate those interviews where we are bolted with numerous questions that do not really pertain to the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley.

    Interview

    Several panel interviews. There was the phone call letting you know you have an interview. Then you have the first of one to three panel interviews. Each person asks their own questions. there was the local manager, the district manager and one of the local favorite sales employees. Then you get a call to come in for another interview and its with the local manager. He will let you know you got the job and this is how much we are going to offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Elgin, IL).

    Interview

    It is nothing more than a standard interview. No surprises and takes a long time to hear back. HR is nothing more than a drone to cover RRD's back.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Lancaster, PA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    This was a pretty structured process: Group interview, tour of the plant, 1 on 1 interview with production supervisor, background check. The 1 on 1 was more of a conversational interview then an interview.

    Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Menlo Park, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews in one day to assess basic knowledge and qualifications. Got an in-person interview the next day that was more in depth, but essentially the same. 2 weeks of hearing nothing, then a third interview with a Morgan Stanley person. 2 more weeks of nothing, until I finally contact them and get some generic (probably robot generated) no-selection email. HR never answers the phone or returns voicemail. Very rude and unprofessional way to treat candidates.

    Interview

    interviewing process is friendly but tricky many questions are asked that are not traditional. a confident but not cocky attitude is the best way to answer and be relaxed. the staff is very nice and warm but it may take a long time before they get back to you

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Applied online and took a week to hear back. Had phone screen with an HR. HR did not ask any productive questions. Did not feel the person asked any skills or knowledge that related to the job. Also, the questions they asked are too general and too broad. It only took 10 mins.
