    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. Asked how I felt I could contribute to this company, and why I should be selected from the myriad of applicants.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly just questions about how I had handled situations in the past, or how i would handle theoretical situations. Nothing terribly difficult.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Pitney Bowes.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed for a sales representative-northern California position at Pitney Bowes. Submitted resume online and received an email and call from a recruiter in less than two weeks - the recruiter was great: answered all my questions and seemed very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I eventually received an in-person interview at a fairly generic office in San Jose. I liked the interviewer/manager but felt the less-than-clean office and general subdued nature of that particular branch was underwhelming. Weighing these facts with the overall travel that the job entailed let me not to accept the offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed 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

    I had a phone interview where VP of Technology in Mail Services in Dec, then face to face in Jan when I spoke with 5 people in one day and then I still have another round with 2 more people. The interview was not that tough. Basically they give you scenarios of how you manage a project and how do you get past issues and conflicts when leading multiple projects in a AGILE environment. This group was really the PSI group (presort mail) and the the executive team was very nice to talk to. They also test your technical skills on Microsoft because they expect this position to architect (no hands coding though) and give direction to their developers.
