    My interview process was very swift. Altogether the process took about 2-3 weeks. The interviews were situation orientated dealing with experiences with clients, Great experience. The interviewers were very kind. The interview felt more of a conversation than a questionaire.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at R.R. Donnelley.

    Interview Details

    Had two managers in the interview. They were not sure of themselves and can easily see that they weren't qualified by the lack of substance in the interview. After answering a question their was a long pause for them to think up the next question. They weren't prepared with question and it seemed like they were winging it. It appeared that they didn't want to be there. They were terrible at assessing talent because of their lack of knowledge. We ended up telling jokes. It ended up being a joke. Very unprofessional especially with the decades these guys had with the company

    Security Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at R.R. Donnelley in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very unorganized. It took several emails over a period of two weeks to get in touch with the recruiter after receiving an initial email. While having my 1st round interview, I wasn't given theopportunity to ask any questions with HR. When the second round interview occurred, it appeared that the interviewers were very new to interviewing. There would be long pauses after I would answer questions (I assumed that it would only take a few seconds to write my responses). While I admit that this may have not been one of my best interviews, it didn't really have any substance to it and I'm glad that I didn't receive an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at R.R. Donnelley in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with the divisional manager and another with the lead analyst. This was followed up with an in-person interview with both of them and another individual. They gave me a tour of the facility and we had nice informal 45-minute or so interview. They essentially went down the list of position requirements to assess my qualifications. It was a no-nonsense approach with relevant questions, a few of a behavioral nature (i.e. how would you approach learning a new application in this situation).

    I was informed 3 business days later I would not be given an offer. I emailed the division manager afterward and inquired of suggestions he had to help me in future interviews, of which he promptly provided feedback.
