    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Plover, WI) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was already working inside already for a year when I applied at the plover,wi location. I was encouraged to apply from a coworker. The process of me turning in the application and getting an interview took about 3 months. The interviewer was intimidating. Then for two weeks after that they hyped me up telling me I got the job, only to find out I did not get the job and they gave it to someone less qualified who's only been with the company two months.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It seemed they were more interested in my previous employer than in me. I was told I would have a phone interview and then be asked in to the office. I was called twice and spoke to 2 different people and was told each time I would be receiving an email giving me availability times to interview on-site. That never happened. The third phone "interview" was with the first recruiter I spoke to. I hung up at that point.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley.

    Interview

    I was given a very brief phone interview where they only asked one question: why RR Donnelley? After that, they told me about the job for another ten minutes. They then scheduled a face-to-face interview. It was a surprisingly long interview. I was told that the interview would last 15-20 minutes, and it went over an hour. They were very honest about the job -- it is 100% non-stop work and solo work.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Do you have any grammar pet peeves?
      2. Why you? Why us? Typical kinds of questions.
      3. Greatest weakness? Second greatest weakness?

      5. What if your boss made a mistake? How would you handle it?   Answer Question

    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

    Negative Experience
    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.
