    I received a message on LinkedIn from a recruiter wanting to talk on the phone as soon as possible. I messaged her back and gave her my contact information for her to call me. She was very polite and easy-going. I was asked to provide some details about my past education/work history/etc.. She let me know I was a great candidate with significant experience and I would be receiving a phone call from someone hirer up on Monday morning, since we spoke Friday late in the afternoon.

    Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Global Insight in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called by Global Insight on a Friday evening and was told I was an ideal candidate for a position they had locally. After going over my experience, which closely matched the position I was told that the Senior recruiter would like to talk with me. While talking with the more Junior recruiter, I told them that I already work FT and would be more conducive to taking the position if it was a FT position as well. They did not seem to think that was a problem, given that I had work at this company before and left on a positive note. After waiting about 5 minutes the first recruiter told me that I could no be considered a candidate for this position. What I heard is, we need someone to bilk for 6 months while working for this company. I already have contacts into this company and really don't need their help to secure any kind of employment (e.g., 20 years IT experience, MBA, MSEE). All HR agencies suck, this one more so than most others.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Global Insight.

    Interview Details

    The entire process felt like recruitment. I did not feel like the job was legitimate when I walked in. I remember feeling that if I took the position it would have to be out of desperation. I think they choose young people to have a high turn over. They just wanted to make sure I was social.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Global Insight in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application online, was contacted by phone 14 days later.
    Very short interview on the phone, because they wanted to meet me in person asap.
    Went to the interview a few days later.

    Interview Questions
    • According to the internship description, focus was on Central and Eastern Europe, turns out it was only Eastern Europe. I was only familiar with Central Europe. It was very awkward as they asked me about Eastern Europe and I had no experience. This could have been asked on the phone already or they could have known by looking at my CV.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    They did not do a bad job. Interview process was long but interesting. Not great pay options. Low starting salary. Good People and a good office culture. Anytime time me or another one of the interviewees needed clarification on a subject the sales management team was glad to explain in further detail.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Global Insight in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    It is a great company for an Economist, however the interview process is extremely slow. I was first contacted by HR on March 2010 to then have my first interview on the last days of April. It was though, these guys are well prepared and very smart, they are going to test your knowledge and your ability to handle the job right away. Be prepared to answer very specific and technical questions,

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Global Insight in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    IHS recruiter got in touch with me, and we had an in-person interview a few weeks later. I didn't get the job, but no-one thought to get in touch to actually tell me that. At the very least, they should have sent me an email for making the effort and preparation to go to the job interview. Very badly managed as a process. I got a better suited job shortly after.
