    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Valassis (North Salt Lake, UT).

    Interview

    I was first interviewed on the phone with someone from HR. I was then interviewed by my immediate sales director. One week after that, a panel of various sales team members all met with me. The panel was the most intimidating.

    Negotiation

    There was not a negotiation regarding my salary. Looking back, I wish I had opened a discussion about the pay and yearly raises. It was a fairly easy process but the panel was intimidating.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Valassis in December 2016.

    Interview

    I had an interview with the company recruiter who was very nice and professional. I did well enough to take an assessment which took about an hour of my time. I heard back from the recruiter who said I did extremely well, but they are considering other candidates and not moving forward at this point. Wait, did I just hear what just happened? This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard and they wasted my time with this assessment. I am speechless! Then I was told they have been having trouble filling this position and they even have had multiple recruiters working on the position. Sounds like the sales manager does not trust the recruiters judgment whom they are presenting.

    Client Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Very disorganized staff. I applied for the position and was contacted to schedule a phone interview, but there was a scheduling mistake so my interviewer never called. She contacted me later and asked me to email her times I could reschedule, and I sent them to her but never received a response. I followed up via email again and received a phone call from someone else in the company letting me know I needed to take an online assessment that they would email me a link to. Of course, I didn't receive the email with the assessment link. I opted not to follow up again, not really a company I'd want to work for.

    Client Program Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Valassis (Livonia, MI) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Initially the process was long, didn't hear back for two months. However, once contact was made the interview process took two weeks: phone and two in-person interviews. All interviews consisted of basic behavioral questions. Advice would be to watch your phrasing for they pay close attention to word choice and will question if something is too passive or irrelevant.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Valassis (Livonia, MI) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview scheduled and I never heard from my interviewer. I called her and she mixed the dates up and rescheduled. On the rescheduled day I still did not hear from her. I've left voicemails and emails and I'm failing to get a response. Why would you even contact me for an interview in the first place? I took time off work and this is very frustrating and unprofessional.
