    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ricoh Americas Corporation (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Did phone interview and test and they finally got back to me 4 months later. Really disorganized and scatterbrained. They lead you on and take forever to get back to you.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ricoh Americas Corporation (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I got recruited so it was very simple. I had a colleague refer me as I was a very successful Sales Manager, but didn't have Production experience. If you are successful at Ricoh, it's VERY easy to get promoted. If you start as an entry level Account Executive and keep hitting Chairman's Club, join every council and do what you're supposed to be doing, amazing jobs fall on your lap. Just work hard to get promoted!

    Interview Questions

    • What production have you sold before?
      Do you know about production solutions?
      Do you think you have what it takes to be successful at this job?   Answer Question

    Discovered RAC at job fair
    Total of 3 interviews
    Aggressive fast paced environment
    The culture is sales driven. Quality of people vary at the entry level with high turnover, but the brand is strong and following the services led approach which most companies in a commodity driven market need to do. Best place for people who are self motivated and are go getters. Not for those who need to be told, but who do it on their own .
