Recruiter/Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Anonymous Employee
Application Details

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Insight Global.

Interview Details

I was approached by a recruiter at my University's Career Fair. After chatting for several minutes we set up a first round interview for two days later. This interview was strictly behavioral and about the position itself. They mainly want to see if you are personable/can carry a conversation, and also if your qualities match up with the job description (hard working, competitive, outgoing, etc.).

Next was a second, onsite interview. This consisted of meeting with 3 different people: the first is the head of the particular office you're interviewing at, and the second two were established account managers. They want to really be sure that you want to do sales and that you are outgoing enough for the job. They could care less about your education.

The third and final round was a lunch interview with the head of the office and another account manager. This interview is all about your personality and your ability to carry a conversation.

My interview process only took 2 weeks, and I received feedback very quickly after each round, except for my final round. The way this company works is they recruit pretty much any person who shows interest in the job; not a very fulfilling experience.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Insight Global in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    A corporate recruiter found me on LinkedIn and we arranged a phone interview. After passing the phone interview, I visited the office for an in-person interview with that recruiter. This was immediately followed with a one-on-one interview with an existing Account Manager. Everyone I met at the office was incredibly friendly, professional, and respectful.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Insight Global.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by someone from the company. I had a quick phone interview then was brought in for an in-person interview. The interview was easy, just a conversation. I met with 2 people. The first girl told me all about the position. She was nice and very helpful. Then I met with a manager and he only asked me a few questions. I was basically the one asking all the questions and carrying the interview. At the end of the interview, he said someone would be contacting me by the end of the week about moving forward. I never got an email or a call. I sent a follow up email the next week and never got a response. Seemed very unprofessional to me. Overall, seemed like an exciting place to work, lots of young people. I just wish they would be a bit more professional with the candidates they choose not to move forward with.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Insight Global.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with an IG recruiter then an in person interview with a manager in the office. Everyone was very nice, but the manager didn't seem too interested in much that I had to say. Basic questions - nothing challenging. Definitely looking for really outgoing, hyper, rah-rah people. The recruiter told me to drink a red bull before going into the interview, which probably would have helped.

    Recruiter/Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Insight Global in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn saying that after viewing my online resume he would like to set up a time to speak with me on the phone about openings that they had at insight global in recruiting and account managing. I set up a phone interview with him and had a very nice conversation with him, at the end of which he asked if I would like to schedule an in person interview at their offices to which I agreed.

    Before heading to my in person interview I did a lot of research on the company and started discovering things that made me feel a little apprehensive about the company -- They have a HUGE turnover rate for their first year employees, pay is very low with a commission structure that does not allow you to make a lot of extra money, they make their employees write positive reviews about the company on sites such as this one to boost their rating (you will notice that all of the 5 star reviews are very generic and from current employees, whereas if you look at the 1 star reviews, they are all from former employees and give details such as this one), many claim that they are untruthful during interviews about the 6-8 months that it takes to be promoted from the recruiting position to account manager position and that, in reality, some are never promoted, and there are even many articles online calling this company a"scam." Despite reading all of this, I decided to go to my interview to give them the benefit of the doubt and form my own opinion of the company or, at the very least, to get some interview practice.

    When I arrived at the office, I walked into the lobby which had 3 conference rooms off of it with windows to the lobby. There was also a desk with a phone on it, but no receptionist. Next to the phone was a sign saying "for assistance please pick up phone" so I picked up the phone, introduced myself, said why I was there and who I was looking for and, after hanging up, was very promptly greeted by the man I had just spoken to and told that my interviewers were currently busy so to take a seat and they would be with me shortly.

    Once there was an interviewing room available, I had three separate fifteen minute interviews. The first was a bit more focused on my resume and the other two were more conversational. A couple things my interviewers said during the interviews made me further question the job and the company such as "when I got hired, I really didn't even understand what the position I was being hired for meant," and "in an average day you make about 90 phone calls, but, of course, not everyone answers, so you will probably actually speak to about 8 or 9 people." The position of "recruiter" is actually more of a telemarketing job which has you making cold calls for the majority of the day.

    Although the three people with which I interviewed were very nice, I could not get passed the information that I had researched about the company and knew that this company would not be the right fit for me.

    The people I interviewed with did genuinely seem to enjoy their jobs and enjoy working there, but for me, I felt that the company seemed to be very unethical and was not the environment that I was looking for. If you do interview, I suggest you do a lot of in depth research on the company so that, if you are offered a position, you know what you would be getting yourself into and can make an informed decision.

    Interview Questions
    • The phone interview was really just to get an idea of your personality and to see if you could come off well over the phone, since about 95% of the job is making cold calls everyday. Be prepared to answer the usual questions like "Tell me about yourself" and "why are you interested in sales?"

      At the in person interview, you will speak with a few different people, and will be expected to lead the conversation and ask a lot of questions.

      "Do you consider yourself a competitive person?"

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Insight Global.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted initially by phone and email by a corporate recruiter who explained to me they thought I was a good fit for the position. Had a casual 15 minute phone interview and was asked to come in for a sit down interview with some account managers and the sales manager. Was interviewed separately by all 3 for about 20-25 minutes each. What I found strange was after the first interview with the account manager, she spoke with the recruiter who then immediately came in and gave me feedback on the previous interview. I was then interviewed by another account manager, and finally a short discussion with the sales manager. Everything was very laid back and none of the questions were out of the ordinary, but I felt they wanted the ideal candidate to be bubbly like a sorority girl with fake smiles and what not.

    Overall a fairly pleasant process, but the professionalism of some of the office was not what you would see in other businesses/industries.

    Recruiter I spoke with was amazing -- man I interviewed with was cocky, arrogant, didn't ask me any questions and just spoke about his own career. The rumor is that they don't care about your background - if you're really attractive and have somewhat of a personality you will get the job

    Interview Details

    The Interview process was one of the most enjoyable I have experienced. The corporate recruiter I spoke with was very nice and easy to talk to as well as very organized and punctual. The office manager I interviewed was the same way. It was a very conversational and less formal kind of interview.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Insight Global in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got contacted by a recruiter after she found my resume on monster. I had about a fifteen minute conversation with the recruiter over the phone and she invited me in to meet with the sales manager two days later. I met with an account manager before the sales manager and was only asked a few questions, then was asked what questions I had. Have a lot of questions prepared, as it is very conversational based. Then I met with the sales manager and was very similar to the interview with the account manager. After the interview was over, I was taken into the office and greeted by everyone working. I heard back from them and was invited back for a second interview an hour after leaving the office, but decided the job wasn't a good fit for me.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Insight Global in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position through my university's hiring system. Within a few days I received a phone call from the company's recruiter. We scheduled an on-campus interview. The interview went well I thought. It was VERY casual conversation and he even asked about the bar life in my college town. The interview seemed more like a sales pitch on the company instead of getting to know the candidate for the position; so I don't believe he really got to know me or got to see if I was properly qualified for the position. It seemed like they were just looking for someone who was interested in fun and partying and not much focused on work.
