    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Very straight forward "Tell me about your self?" and tell me about your accomplishments?"
    The hiring manager had a lack of technical knowledge, marketing knowledge and product knowledge. Lacked a clear vision of the short term and long term objectives for the division of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Ther were no difficult questions. The manager did have a lack of technical and market knowledge and this made the interview difficult.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Xerox.

    Interview

    It was a very logical process oriented process. Hiring Executive made the last call. However, in sequential order HR, Managers did 1-1 in person and on phone.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Xerox (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    The interviewer was relatively professional. He asked job related questions and gave me ample time to formulate my answers, but he did not seem to be an expert in the field. This was a bit disappointing since he was head of the department. I immediately lost respect for him.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Xerox (Webster, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Xerox uses a team approach for this position - usually starting with a staff person, then progressing to others. They may bring you in for a group interview - depending on location. They also run background checks, require a drug test and review references.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Xerox (Austin, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Had two phone interviews, neither interviewer seemed very focused and the second interviewer had another person's paperwork when they called me. Very basic interview questions, that you would expect from an initial interview mainly asking about how you would handle or have handled certain situations. Seemed like they rushed the interview and did not create a favorable impression of the organization. Due to the impression I was given, I removed myself from consideration.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Xerox (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview which went great then was called by the recruiter the next day and given a verbal offer. Still waiting for my offer letter to be e-mailed to me (as they told me they do not send an offer letter and the new hire paperwork via overnight mail) and it is ten days later since the verbal offer was made to me. The recruiter does not respond to follow-up e-mail update inquiries I have sent.
