Recruiter Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Insight Global in April 2014.
Interview Details – Contacted by recruiter, followed by in-person interview. Interviewed with about 4 account managers that day in a small conference room. The interview was more of a conversation/getting to know you than a formal questions and answer interview. Account managers seemed very passionate about their job and the future of Insight Global but I didn't get the best vibes.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5 years Answer Question
Recruiter Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Insight Global
Interview Details – Sat in during on-campus interviews, they talked almost strictly about my activities, interests. They asked mostly on how I spent my free time, what interests I had, how I got involved with greek life, etc.
Interview Question – What do you do for fun? Answer Question
Recruiter/Account Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and 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.
Interview Question – What sets you apart from other candidates being interviewed? Answer Question
Technical Recruiter Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I interviewed at Insight Global in June 2014.
Interview Details – Recruiter contacted me via Linkedin to set up a phone interview which was just a conversation about my current position and why I'd like to go into sales! Set up interview in office. I would recommend scheduling your in office interview to take place at the end of the week since they hold interviews all week and talk with your recruiter on Friday.
Interview Question – What motivates you? It's more of a conversation so be sure to get a little back round info on the managers and sales directors who will be interviewing you before hand! Answer Question

Recruiter Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Insight Global.
Interview Details – A phone interview with a corporate recruiter, and then they invite you for a face to face interview with a Sales Manager of the office, which can take some time. From there they will invite you to a third and final interview which is to lunch, you should hear back very quickly whether or not they would like to move forward.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 10 years from now both personally and professionally Answer Question
Recruiting Client Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Insight Global in July 2014.
Interview Details – First contacted through a phone call and was helped in going over a position they found suitable for me. Throughout many phone calls and an eventual in-person interview with the recruiter, they helped me in finding a position that utilized my skill set. The recruiters worked very hard to not only help you get as much information on the position and get you in the door, but also to feel like a friend to them and not just another client.
Technical Recruiter Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Insight Global in September 2013.
Interview Details – The team will lead you on like you are the greatest thing to touch the face of the planet. You will waste your time interviewing for a position that has as much if not more turnover than any other position hiring. They are looking for Greek affiliated students from the area they are recruiting for because they know that they are personable and know a lot of people from the area they grew up in. It is a competitive job, and money can be made. Just be aware that you should not put all your eggs in this basket.
Interview Question – How you are going to be successful in the industry.... Nobody knows anything about Technical Recruiting, so don't BS yourself. Answer Question
Recruiter Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Insight Global.
Interview Details – The process was great. A couple friends of mine were hired for the recruiter position at Insight Global and recommended me to their corporate recruiter. The recruiter called me right away and set up a face to face interview. The interview was very relaxed and I met with 4 different people. They always asked me the same question in the beginning "Tell me about yourself" and then from there it was very conversational. You have to make sure you ask a lot of questions and really sell yourself!
Interview Question – Tell me about yourself...this is not as easy as it seems. You really need to have a good interesting answer and convince them why they should want to hire you. Answer Question
Professional Recruiter Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Insight Global in May 2014.
Interview Details – First was contacted by an extremely nice woman working in another office, who spoke to me and explained the position to me. We had an informal interview and she quickly set me up to meet with the Boston office. However, my experience there was quite opposite to the one I had with the original phone interviewer. I came in and was left in a conference room for about 20 minutes past the interview time, at which point a sales manager sauntered in. He was extremely rude, extremely disinterested, and extremely unpleasant. I was immediately turned off by his foul attitude and lack of interview etiquette. I was supposed to meet with two people, but only met with this one horrid man. He barely asked me questions and did not engage with anything I was saying. Based on the fact that this guy had a leadership role in the office, I knew immediately that I would never want to work there, and was utterly relieved when I could walk out the door. I did not follow up with anyone in the office, because I had no interest in moving forward.
Interview Question – Very basic questions. Answer Question
