    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.

    Interview

    1) First step is a test and re-entering your resume data on their web app. (2 hour long test which is basically an IQ test)
    2) Interview with HR rep (basic interview over Skype)
    3) Re-take test but proctored
    4) Interview with members of company in person
    5) Further interviews with higher-ups

    You start at 30K CDN and make close to 33K after probation.You must pay them ~$150 biweekly for a company car (which also artificially raises your gross income so you loss income via taxes). At the end of the day you are putting long hours away from home into a professional-like job and getting slightly over minimum wage ( not to mention their pension is 50% contribution to 3% even though the industry standard is 6%). Does this hassle seem worth it? I don't think so. Stay far away from this greedy corporation.

    I normally take glassdoor reviews with a grain of salt. However, I should have listened and not wasted my time.

    Graduate Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds (Birmingham, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to Reynolds and Reynolds by sending a CV to their recruiter. I got an email reply that told me to fill out an application form (basically just filling out a form with everything that already was in my CV) and 3 Tests (Personality Assessment, an Aptitude Assessment, and an Ethics Assessment).

    The first two were more or less your standard tests where you have to choose a picture that continues a pattern. The tests were long and boring, but a lot of companies have them so I wasn't surprised. The ethics assessment had a lot of weird questions like "Does a person who smokes weed once a week have a drug problem", "Would you tell on a coworker that steals from the office", "Would you come to work high". A lot of questions about smoking weed and stealing. Frankly, it made me pretty uncomfortable, as if the company assumed anyone applying is automatically a criminal and a junkie. Oh, also they don't hire anyone that uses tobacco in any way. I don't smoke, but I wouldn't work for a company that discriminates like that.

    After passing this stage, I got a Skype interview with the HR person. I was asked pretty general questions about my background, some of the points on my CV, general plans about the future. Nothing difficult here. The connection cut out halfway through so we concluded the interview on the phone.

    I passed that stage and was invited to the office in Birmingham. I had two separate interviews with two people pretty high up in the company. They both asked pretty much the same questions (the first one even admitted the second one would ask the same things). I really don't understand why we couldn't have done this interview once with both of them present in the room. They asked me some questions about my CV/experience/aspirations. Nothing too technical - didn't even have to solve any problems. After that I had to do the EXACT SAME Aptitude test as I've taken before, in a freezing room where the thermostat wouldn't go up. I felt like the company was wasting my time at that point. They really want you to answer the same questions twice, be it in interviews or online tests.

    I passed this stage and got a job offer from the company. The salary was very small compared to what other companies offer their Graduate Software Devs. Moreover, they wanted me to come to their office ASAP to take a drug test, and needed me to fill out some more forms to help them do background checks on me (passing these was a condition for the job offer). I was considering going through with this all until I saw the questions in those forms. Some of them were, in my opinion, extremely personal, like "What are your spouse's aspirations for you", "What clubs were you a part of in high school", "What are your spouse's parents addresses". I do think a company should know that much about me. It was pretty creepy to be honest. I cancelled the drug test and rejected the offer after this.

    Overall, the whole process was extremely inefficient. The aptitude tests are ridiculously boring as they are, and when they make you do them twice it honestly feels like they're not respecting you or your time. The in-person interviews weren't difficult, but the redundancy of the second interview just reinforced my feeling like they didn't care about my time. If they treated me like this, I'm afraid to imagine how they treat their employees. The office is very gray and boring as well, so I feel like it would've been pretty soul crushing to work for this company.

    Field Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds (College Station, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First there was the 2 hours of personality & IQ tests. Those are OK as I understand companies are relying more & more on these tests to find "ideal" candidates. After the tests there was a Skype interview with a recruiter/HR in the Texas office. Rebecca was very friendly, very forthcoming & overall the conversation was very pleasant. Very basic job history & responsibilities questions, talk about the role, etc...

    After that comes another questionnaire you are required to fill out with personal information like where your parents live & work, what pets you had as a child, how much (if any) in alimony or child support do you pay, and do you use tobacco. That is the big bug-a-boo... they do RANDOM NICOTINE TESTING because they are a "tobacco-free company both on the job & off." I am a non-smoker (cigarettes) but from time to time (every few month or so) i like to enjoy a cigar with a friend. This is apparently against company policy. A company that delves this much into my personal life is not one I want to work for. All the reviews of micromanagement and lack of work/life balance start to sound like they are legitimate.

    Remote Call Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.

    Interview

    The application and aptitude test they have you take is absolutely ridiculous. Its practically a mini SAT. Its asks very invasive questions and asks you to repeat everything you have already emailed them on your resume. They ask you if you smoke and if you hug your family. The math questions are hard for someone that doesn't use percentages and fractions in their everyday life especially while timed and with no calculator. Why would I as a call analyst need to know how to calculate profit or deprecation? Its a joke for a part time job that reportedly pay less than $8 an hour.
