Very Easy Interview
I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Insight Global in October 2013.
Interview Details –
Had a quick 15 minute phone interview followed by an invitation to interview with two sales managers in their office later that week. Upon arriving there was no one in the office at all and there was a phone with a note on it to pick it up for help. Someone quickly came out and led me to a room and told me the two interviewers would be right with me. After sitting for about 15 minutes past my interview time, the two interviewers came in to introduce themselves, then instantly left again (I assume to discuss their first impressions). It seemed that by showing up for my scheduled interview time, I was interrupting their day. After another 10 minutes of waiting, only one returned for the interview.
It was not much of an interview at all, more of a sales pitch for the company. It felt like I was in a timeshare sales pitch, where I had to be skeptical of everything I was told. All she talked about was how much money the top earners of the company make, how big of a spending account the managers had, and a vacation incentive that was not even offered to employees in the position that they were interviewing for. All in all, it seemed like she was avoiding the topic of what the company actually did and what my responsibilities for the position would be.
It turns out after pressuring the interviewer, I found out that it on average takes longer than the 8 months they claim to be promoted from a recruiter. On top of this, the base salary is only $30,000 with no overtime and minimal bonuses for at least the first 5 years. After a few years, the job may pay well, but working for 5 years at $30,000 a year can be hard to get by on, especially since they require business professional dress every day of work. When I asked about the employee turnover rate, I was quickly and excitedly told, "After 5 years there is less that 10% employee turnover!" This is not what I wanted to know. When asked about first year employees, I was told that only around 40% of employees stay with the company past their first year, and about 60% find work somewhere else, and it is almost all voluntary.
I went in being a little skeptical of the company after reading some other reviews, and I was right to be so. The company expects a lot of work out of their employees for relatively low pay. On top of this, the benefits talked about are not for the recruiter position. They are only available once you are promoted to the next level, which takes longer than advertised, if even promoted at all. The recruiter/account manager position consists of 50+ hour work weeks with only 3 vacation days a year, a $30,000 base salary that is non negotiable and does not increase, and lower than industry average commission rates.
I was told after the interview that I would receive a call the following Monday letting me know the next steps. After receiving no call on Monday, I was a little curious about what they thought, especially since I really made them tell me the true job description, so called them myself on Tuesday. I was told I was selected for the next round and asked when I had time to go out for lunch with some other members of the company. I politely declined and was asked "If you don't want the job, why would you call me?" I just told her that if someone tells me they are going to follow up with me, I expect them to do so. You'd think a company that is based on recruiting and hiring would understand this.
I know that was a lot of info, but I feel it is necessary information that is not told to potential candidates. Long story short, if you are willing to put in your time with the company and live just above the poverty line (just above $23,000/year in the U.S.) for a few years, it may pay off for you. If you are really trying to start a career for a reputable company, I would suggest looking elsewhere. If you get the chance, interview with Insight Global and see for yourself it is the right fit for you, just make sure you don't get caught up in their sales pitch. Make sure are looking at the big picture, not just what might happen 10 years down the road if you do well.
Interview Question – No real questions were asked. It was all a big sales pitch for the company. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – After interviewing with the company, I did not feel it was a good fit for me. I feel my time would be better suited for a different type of company that respects the knowledge and skill I am bringing to them. Insight Global is looking for a "blank slate" that they can mold into one of their sales positions and then work them as much as they can.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Insight Global.
Interview Details – I talked to the corporate recruiter and everything seemed great. Scheduled an in person interview and when I got there it was a waste of my time. They didn't want to find out why I was qualified for the position they just wanted to socialize. I didn't want to drive 30 minutes to just talk to someone. I wanted to learn more about the position and how I was qualified. They were more concerned about if I went to the bars and I thought it was very unprofessional.
Interview Question – They didn't really ask any questions the only one I remember is why sales. Answer Question

Interview Details – I received a phone call after I had posted my resume on Monster from a Corporate Recruiter. We talked about my background, what I was looking for in a company, and she told me a lot about the opportunity at Insight Global. What really impressed me was the growth of the company, the culture, and the training/development they offered as I just recently graduated from college. After I went in for my first interview, I was blown away and the rest has been history : ) From the second I walked in, I knew it was the right fit for me. Everyone was so friendly and passionate about what they did. I loved the environment as well as employees I met, and I thought the interview went way better than I could have ever imagined!
Interview Question – What if I told you you didn't get the job... what would you say? Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Insight Global in April 2013.
Interview Details – I applied for this position through my college and was interviewed on campus. I was interviewed by one woman and it was very casual. It seemed like she wanted to get a sense of my personality more than anything else, and she did a lot of the talking as well. About a week later I received an email saying that I did not get the job.
Interview Question – How involved are you in clubs at your school? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Insight Global in March 2013.
Interview Details – I submitted my application online through my school's career center website. From there I emailed the recruiter who posted the job and let him know that I was interested. Conveniently, he was going to be at the career fair that week. So I met him and other employees there. About a week or 2 later, I got an email wanting to set up a face to face interview. At the face to face interview I spoke with 2 girls. They were both VERY conversational and nice. Extremely easy to talk to. They seemed like they genuinely wanted to know about me. They asked a few basic interview questions regarding my interest in sales and also people skills. After I spoke to both of them, I got asked back to have lunch with them that same week. Lunch was very conversational, they wanted me to show them that I could hold a conversation and also drive a decent conversation.

Interview Details – The interview process had two steps. The first was an "in-office" interview where I had a chance to meet the management, talk to others who were in the Account Manager role and ask them questions, then I got a tour of the office to see the culture of the company. The second interview was a lunch interview where a Sales Manager and another Account Manager took me to a restaurant across the street and offered me the job after!

Ultimately I didn't feel like I was a good fit for the company.
