Designer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Pitney Bowes.
Interview Details I got a referral. Brief and unremarkable phone interview followed by an on site presentation I was asked to make. They were almost too impressed with the technological aspects of my presentation which were hardly remarkable and not really the point of the presentation.
Over 2 months passed between interview (beginning of August) and offer (mid October). Offer included a start date over 3 months later (last day of January.)
Interview Question – What would you physically need to reproduce your presented work. At first I thought that this was the 'trick question' to verify that I had actually done the work when in fact they had no understanding of it (the process or technology.) View Answer
Negotiation Details – The offer seemed ideal as I thought what a great way to start. Sadly, changes in mgmt over the next year killed both enthusiasm for the work and the desire for a truly creative outcome.
Product Support Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through another source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Pitney Bowes in March 2009.
Interview Details Involved on interview by HR and 2 technical interviews involving a manager and several senior engineers.
Interview Question – What are your career goals, "don't answer by saying advance to management" View Answer
Negotiation Details – took the second offer
Systems Customer Service Representative Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Pitney Bowes in January 2009.
Interview Details Supervisor called me in, showed me around, told me about the position, and made me an offer within an hour.
Interview Question – None. However, it was made very clear that the position required complete flexibility regarding shift and weekend work. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They do not allow negotiation.
Recruiting Coordinator Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Pitney Bowes in December 2012.
Interview Details Applied online and received a phone call about two months later to set up an interview I interviewed with the talent manager. The interview was fairly easy. It didnt seem like they were really prying. More of a conversational interview. I was told that decisions will be made by the end of the week about the position and the prospective employee would be starting 1/1/2013. Of course, I never heard back from them. I called and emailed but to no avail. I'd rather them just honor their word as far as getting back to me.
Interview Question – Nothing really hard. Answer Question
Senior Director Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Pitney Bowes in January 2012.
Interview Details I was invited back multiple times and interviewed by my VP, the chief officer of my function, my VP's peers and other business leaders. It was mostly behavioral based interview questions. Lots of emphasis on HOW I accomplished what I did, not just what I accomplished. I was given quick feedback and strong encouragement throughout a somewhat long process. I, however, was not actively looking so a longer process was actually very welcome.

Interview Details Applied online. Received a phone interview which was fairly benign. Had an interview with the department supervisor, in which he discussed my qualifications and skills, as well as my goals for the future. It was a fairly thorough interview, from my perspective.

Financial Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Pitney Bowes in February 2009.
