Communications Manager/HQ Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Davidson, NC

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Ingersoll-Rand in October 2012.

Interview Details – Standard progressive process: 1) phone interview w/ recruiter; 2) interview w/ hiring manager; 3) panel interviews onsite. The onsite interviews were well coordinated and lasted all day. I met with 8 people and each were assigned a set of behaviors to assess. Yes, that's right, a full-day of behavioral-based interviewing. Once the day wrapped up, I was exhausted, but I had a good feel for the folks I'd be working with, the challenges and if it was a right fit for me. However, in the weeks that followed my day-long interviews, the process seemed to break down. I followed up with both recruiter and manager multiple times on the status of my candidacy, but received no response. This was very disappointing as I had greater expectations of candidate follow-up than what IR provided. Particularly, since I had spent a full day away from my existing job and they had invested in flying me to meet with them. Finally, after five weeks and no communication, I received the obligatory form letter. At this point, I had already moved on and accepted other offers, but at least they offered closure. It's also noteworthy to add that if you do travel and submit an expense report, it takes as long as six weeks to receive payment. In my opinion, this long delay speaks to the company's internal struggles and would make me pause in considering if this is the right place for your career.

I had high hopes for IR, but in the end they let me down. I would be extremely cautious in pursuing opportunities here.

Interview Question – Nothing totally unexpected, but many of the interviewers are not completely skilled in behavioral-based interviewing and their questions came across as bumbled, requiring the candidate to clarify what they were asking.   Answer Question
