Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Valassis.

Interview

Very drawn out, had to meet with a few current sales executives and then a lot of back and forth with hiring manager. The first was a phone conversation with hiring manager, then an in-person interview followed by a few current employee conversations.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process is very thorough at Valassis, which is a good thing. This makes it more likely that there will be a good fit between the company and the new hire. The interview process consisted of several steps (at least five) in different formats, including one to one, a panel interview with at least 3-4 interviewers, and a presentation to the person who ultimately became my boss.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't any one question that was difficult or unexpected. Most of the questions were very standard. What made the interview more difficult was the sheer number and variety of interviews and people I met with.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Valassis (New York, NY) in September 2010.

    Interview

    I knew someone in the company that recommended me. I interviewed with 2 mid-level managers in person.
    Interview was informal/conversational. Focused mostly on experiences in the industry and client contacts.
    My case may have been more informal due to my internal sponsorship
