Human Resources Executive Interview

Human Resources Executive
Montvale, NJ

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Ingersoll-Rand in October 2010.

Interview Details – External recruiter. Interviewed hiring manager and senior leader. Then interviewed with key stakeholders. Key stakeholder group included a few people who would be reporting to me. A lot of repetition speaking with so many people. Felt like hiring is a consensus decision, which ended up mirroring the corporate culture. It was an OK process. Best recruiting I've ever experienced was at Coca Cola.

Negotiation Details – Not much room for negotiation.

Service Manager Interview

Service Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ingersoll-Rand.

Interview Details – Recruiter called based off of Linked In profile. Interview was with Regional Manager. Discussion focused on operations, P&L, and margin growth. No sales responsibilities or control. After interview, I got a call back to interview with branch manager and the other two division managers (sales and controls). Lots of questions regarding experiences, methods, prior successes, etc. After the group interview, there was another lunch and an offer. I didn't like the lack of sales control yet job success significantly restrained by sales.

Interview Question – How would you handle long time employees with low productivity and/or accuracy?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Not enough sales and/or sales input.
