Technical Recruiter Interview

Technical Recruiter
Scottsdale, AZ

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Insight Global in September 2013.

Interview Details – One telephone interview, one interview in person far from my home (they did not reimburse me for gas cost), and one in the location I desired to work at. Long time periods between interviews. They were very nice, but when it came to for them to release me from the hiring process I received a generic email. They should respect applicants enough to tell them exact reasons and not leave them with the same email they send everyone....

Interview Question – No difficult questions. It was not behavioral based at all.   Answer Question

Technical Recruiter Interview

Technical Recruiter
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Insight Global.

Interview Details – The hiring process went pretty smoothly. 1st set up a call with a Recruiter, then an in-person interview where you talk to about 3-5 people. Finally, a lunch interview with sales managers. The people who work there seem very similar/nice, but every interview you feel like you're being judged on what you look like/everything you talk about.

The lunch interview was the strangest part. I was not asked one question about my resume. Although the lunch was informal, it seemed unprofessional. I understand the point is to see if you can hold a conversation and would be a fit for relationship-based sales, but having not met either of the sales managers before, I felt a little confused as to why I wasn't being asked any questions.

After the lunch interview, I was fully expecting to get an offer, and didn't. I genuinely really loved one of the sales managers, and the other seemed to not like me as much (we just didn't have too much in common), and I think that may be why. If you don't get an offer after lunch, you didn't get the job.

Tysons Corner, VA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Insight Global in September 2013.

Interview Details – Initial phone interview was short and simple. Next step was a face to face interview at the office where I met with 3 different people. Apparently they liked what they saw and passed me on to a third and final lunch interview with two executives. After lunch I waited two days and received a call saying that they had a more fitting candidate. Very professional company however I felt as though I was not hired because I didn't fit a certain personality type. They were looking for a candidate who was involved in Greek life and other scholarly clubs. When I told them I had to support myself in college and work as a server every weekend they looked down on me. Also they were very interested in who my friends are and how successful they are.. Seemed a little discriminatory my opinion.

Interview Question – None- basic interview questions. They are really looking to see that you can drive conversation.   View Answer

Technical Recruiter Interview

Technical Recruiter
San Diego, CA

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Insight Global.

Interview Details – There was a phone screening, first interview with a manager and second interview with a senior executive. The recruiter from the phone screen was very helpful and prepared me before each interview and answered any questions that I had. I really enjoyed the first interview I had at the Scottsdale office and fell in love with the company, however I didn't get a good vibe from my final interviewer in San Diego.

Interview Question – Nothing was out of the ordinary or unexpected. Very straightforward questions, i.e. why you would be a good fit, what experiences prepared you for this position, etc.   Answer Question

Interviewed at Insight Global

Interview Details – I applied on Career Builder and was contacted by a corporate recruiter who asked a few questions about my experience and background. She then arranged an in office interview.

Interview Question – Easy interview, very conversational. They don't ask any standard interviewing questions. I've had a couple years of experience and they didn't seem interested in hearing about it. I think they prefer to hire employees fresh out of college.   Answer Question

Technical Recruiter Interview

Technical Recruiter
Charlotte, NC

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Insight Global in August 2012.

Interview Details – I was contacted through LinkedIn by their corporate recruiter. After having a phone conversation with him, my interest was peaked and I really wanted to further explore the opportunity. I eventually was able to purchase a plane ticket and set up an interview. I called my recruiter before my interview and he told me to ask questions and be energetic.
I arrived at the location, had to use the telephone to let someone know I was there, was taken to a room and waited for a while. Finally the Sales Manager came in.

I must say I was extremely disappointed in this interview process. The sales manager spent approximately 5 minutes with me. He asked where I was from and asked me to tell him about myself. Then he said he was going to have a few other people come talk to me and that I should ask them questions.

Well two more people came in (at seperate times) and asked me if I had any questions for them. I asked multiple questions about how they came to work there, how they progressed, what their challenges were, what they thought was the best triat that had made them successful etc.... and they rambled on and on to answer all of my questions. So.... I listened intently and took notes. DON'T DO THAT!! I later learned that apparently they want you to talk as much as you can. However, I was not given a chance to because they talked the entire time until they said do you have any other questions and I'd ask another.

Before I knew it, the second girl was telling me that is all they have for me today and I was confused because they had not asked me any questions to get to know me, my personality, or my capabilities other than where are you from, did you play sports, where did you go to college. I felt really deceived after leaving because I felt like I didn't even get the chance to talk.

My advice, don't try to be polite and wait for them to finish. Interject with comments as much as possible and be as conversational as you can possibly be.

Interview Question – They really didn't ask much other than where are you from, where did you go to college. They expected you to ask all the questions.   Answer Question

Technical Recruiter Interview

Technical Recruiter
Boston, MA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Insight Global in May 2012.

Interview Details – A corporate recruiter contacted me via email and phone after coming across my resume on the internet. First I went through a phone interview which basically consisted of the recruiter selling the company to me. I was then invited to partake in a 1 on 1 interview 2 weeks later. During the in person interview I met with a lead recruiter as well as the corporate recruiter who initially contacted me. The whole "interview" was them once again selling the company to me and asking if this is the type of company I would like to work for. 1 week after the in person interview I received an email explaining that I was not the best fit for the company

All the employees I talked to and met with seemed to be overly excited to meet me. They are looking to hire a specific type of person and if you weren't part of a fraternity or sorority in college, don't like to drink socially and can't carry a smile all day then you might not be that person.

Interview Question – Were you a member of a Greek organization while in college?   Answer Question

Denver, CO

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Insight Global in September 2011.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter who saw my resume on CareerBuilder.com. We set up a phone interview for the next day. The phone interview was short and sweet and mostly consisted of the interviewer describing the position. I went into the office about a week or so later and was greeted by a very perky and friendly girl in the lobby. She lead me into a meeting room and we talked about her job as an Account Executive. She explained how she basically runs arouns town all day meeting with companies to try to maintain relationships. She asked me two or three serious questions (e.g. Why do you want to work in sales?), but other than that we mostly got to know each other. Then a Sales Executive came in and we had a similar conversation, but it felt like she just wanted me to ask questions about the job, which the previous girl had explained in detail. I left feeling confident because both employees were very easy to talk to and seemed interested in me. A week later I received a rejection email.

Nashville, TN

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Insight Global in June 2011.

Interview Details – After applying online, I was contacted after a few days by an internal recruiter. She asked me several personality questions as well as questions about my resume. I was selected for an interview at the office, where I was interviewed by my internal recruiter, a sales manager, and an account manager. Overall, the interview went pretty smoothly. The next few days I never received any word from anybody from the company, after leaving thank you emails and leaving a message on my recruiters voicemail. Finally I was told a decision date, and the day after that I received an email saying "I was not the best fit." Very warm before interview, very cold after interview. I was not impressed at all with how the process was handled, especially by a company that specializes in RECRUITING.

Parsippany, NJ

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Insight Global in November 2010.

Interview Details – Really great corporate recruiter who I developed a very good relationship with. Phone interview with the recruiter that probes at your personality and character. Same type of interview with Sales Manager and than again with the Regional Sales Manager. They focus highly on work ethic and personality. The Sales Manager takes you out to eat with a sales rep and they casually interview you while making it seem like a conversation. This was a great experience that was pretty fun. The Regional Sales Manager interviews you a few weeks later and is pretty serious in their approach, but overall I had a great interview experience and am highly considering their job offer.
