    Associate Creative Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley.

    Interview

    The recruiter called and had a bad reception on their end. Call was dropped and it kind of threw me off. After a couple of minutes they called back and then it was like speed dating. The call maybe lasted 8 minutes. They didn’t have answers to some of my questions stating that it was a company of over 10,000 people and they couldn’t answer questions at the level that I was asking. In the end they went with other candidates. I assume it was candidates that actually got a better chance to interview. Disappointing because I was excited for the call and the opportunity.

    Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley in August 2020.

    Interview

    Phone Interview with NY-based recruiter. The interview was going smoothly until he elected to change the tone completely. He decided to reject my candidacy because I did NOT file for unemployment in January when I departed my previous firm. Quite frankly, I have never experienced nor heard about anything like this. This was easily the most ridiculous interview that I have ever taken part in.

    Interview Questions

    • - Walkthrough of my previous positions.
      - Long-winded lecture about how he had to move back in with his parents after he got his MBA.
      - Lecture about why it is fishy that I didn't file for unemployment   Answer Question

    Legal Document Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Phoenix, AZ (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    I got called by a recruiter. Set up a phone interview. Talked to Alan Freeman (client services director), who gave me the impression that I would be hired - I just needed to talk to a site manager to make sure I was a good fit. Al Freeman refused to answer my phone calls. Already seemed a little too easy anyways, a simple phone interview and I'm hired? Either way, absolutely unprofessional of Al Freeman.

    Human Resources Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at R.R. Donnelley (Tempe, AZ (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    I was very excited to see this opportunity online and was pleased with how quickly I was interviewed after submitting my application. The phone interviewed went really well, next steps of the interview process were communicated with me, and I was told I'd hear back within a week. It's been a little more than a month and I've yet to hear anything. I've sent two (polite) messages checking in and still no response.

    As an HR professional, we know how much it stinks when employers are ghosted by candidates. As a candidate, it can be heartbreaking when you're ghosted. The interview goes well, you share with family and friends about a new potential opportunity, and then there's no response.

    I thought the experience was going really well and would have welcomed a generic regrets letter. I wish RR Donnelley all the best, but you missed out on a stellar professional that was going to be a huge asset for your company.
