    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Ingersoll-Rand.

    Interview Details

    IR brings in a lot of contract help for certain projects, but then, let's go of full time PMs and dissolves global PMO department. Uncertain times in reorganization.

    Interview Questions
    • Managers & interview panel are 'forced' to ask questions from the targeted selection list. STAR format is imperative.
      Examples: Tell me about a time when your standard approach to problem solving didn’t produce the desired solution. What did you do? What was the outcome? What did you learn?
      Describe a time when you actively listened to the concerns of others and it changed your opinion. What did you learn? What did you do differently?

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ingersoll-Rand in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Following the initial submission of my resume and application, a preliminary phone interview was conducted with a low level HR manager, afterwards I was contacted by the national manager for the marketing group and was subsequently recommended to local manager for interview. My interview was with 6 different members of the department over 2 one hour interview sessions. Questions where mainly behavioral based. Take your time while answering and follow the STAR method for answers you will be fine. I was told I was the candidate of choice but it would be a while before I could be hired due to a company wide hiring freeze. Approximately, a month later I received an email from HR that the position I had interviewed for was moved to a new location.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed 4 times at 1-4 time periods and then they never communicated from that point on.
    My impression was they were unorganized and had managerial structure issues leading to difficulty making a decision.

    Lead Supplier Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Davidson, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Davidson, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Ingersoll-Rand in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    My resume was submitted directly through a current IR employee. I was then contacted by talent management for a initial phone interview. Three weeks later I was contacted by the hiring manager for a phone interview. Fairly straight forward questioning for both. Immediately after I was told I to make travel arrangements for an onsite interview. A couple days into making travel plans, I was then told I would have a panel interview by phone conference. The interview was behavior based questioning that wasn't too difficult. The interview was then followed up with another 30 minute phone interview covering technical questions. I then waited 2 1/2 weeks for a decision when I was contacted by talent management with a couple additional questions and feedback that I was to travel in to tour the site and check out the area. A couple days later I was contacted and told that I was going to have another panel interview but this one would be by video conference. Talent management made arrangements for a video conference in my town for a panel interview. Two of the individuals in the interview had also been in the previous panel interview. Behavior based questioning again lasting over an hour. At this point, I had been dealing with IR for 2 1/2 months and losing my patience because of the waiting, interviewing with the same people with some of the same questions. At the end of the interview I was told that they would make a decision that day and I should know something in a few days. After a week I started contacting talent management. I could never reach them by phone but was able to get a response that they were finishing up interviews and would get everyone together for a group decision. They were unaware that I knew the position was offered immediately after my interview, and the 2 of the interviews were overseas at the time they said they were still interviewing and meeting for a decision. I did get turned down for the position but after 12 weeks I was relieved to have closure. Everything about this process was bad. Poor communication, planning, coordination and timing. I took 2 vacation day from my current job because they scheduled the interview in the middle of the day. Chalk this one up as my worst interview experience over a 20 year career.
