    Initially it started with an HR Interview where the interviewer asked me about my background and my career goals, interest, availability and preferences of location.

    Very easy, only the resume was discussed. They don't grill you with hardcore technical questions. They want to know if you know the basics - they'll train you as they need.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Pontiac, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Questions with nothing that pertained to job. Nothing about my people skills. Very different than anything I've been through before. Could tell someone was already picked for this position. Kind of nonchalant.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was sent an email requesting a phone interview. The interview took about 20 minutes, just as the email had said. It was pretty much what I expected; they discussed the program, the sales-oriented track, mentioned the requirements and duration of each phase of the program. I was asked 3 or 4 pretty standard interview questions, and was also given time to ask my own questions.

    Interview Questions

    • What was a big decision that you had to make recently, and how did you handle it?   Answer Question
    • This program starts at the ground floor, in the print production area. Would you be comfortable with this - as opposed to a job in a high rise?   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Logan, UT) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I learned about this position from a friend that has worked there for a number of years, other applicants found out by attending the career fair at Utah State University. The position was interviewed for over the summer, and then they let us know that it would be for October through February work. We found out if we were selected in a few short weeks after the interview which made it so we could tell current employers, if applicable.

    Interviewed with VP of Finance, Finance Director, and HR Director. I was a Senior Financial Analyst applying for the Finance Manager role.

    Composition Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Incredibly disjointed process. The "in-house" hiring personnel admitted they were not a permanent employee, which seemed a tad strange. This person was a consultant and was moody - mainly rude, sometimes nice. I have NEVER had such a frustrating process, but was absolutely glad to know how disjointed the company (at least at this location or within this branch) was/is. I could not get a response from the "real" HR department, had emails bounced back, and was accused of a false answer/response MULTIPLE times. SOOOOO glad to not work there!!!

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by a three person panel. Very uncomfortable, felt more like an interrogation!!! Some of the questions were completed foolish, others too personal. The interview (with three people) took way to long and then I was given a test at the end.
