    Manufacturing Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mocksville, NC

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Ingersoll Rand (Mocksville, NC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Started with a phone screen with the corporate HR rep. Then had a phone screen with the hiring manager for the facility. All went well so I was called in for a f2f interview. Arrived at the facility and was escorted around the facility and was asked to make suggestions and recommendations on what could be improved and how to improve it. It was obvious that when I made the suggestions the hiring manager was irritated that I found something wrong with his facility. Then went into a panel interview that I had made a presentation for at their request. I covered the presentation and then went into a hour long round-robin question and answer session with the managers taking turns asking questions. Left with a very positive feeling I was a good fit for the job and for the company. The (2) business days later I received the feedback that I was not qualified for the job and did not have the required machining experience. The corporate HR rep then told me verbally "we decided to go with another candidate". One interesting note, the company reposted the position 20 minutes BEFORE they contacted me to let me know they gave the job to another candidate. Something seems amiss with the details I was given. In addition, it has been 5 weeks since the interview and I still have not gotten reimbursed for my travel expenses and I have not had any reply to my second email requesting to understand the approval of my check.

    Accountant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ingersoll Rand (Davidson, NC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively fair and standard. After applying to the company, I received an email from someone in HR to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was set for 30 minutes, but we connected fairly well and talked for about 45 minutes. I was brought in for a 2 hour interview. The first hour was with members of the team, and the second hour was with the director of the respective department. From my perspective, both interviews went really well. At the end, the hiring manager informed me that the company would be in touch to inform me of their decision, either way, no later than the end of the week. The interview occurred on Tuesday. I received a follow-up phone call on Thursday stating that the decision would be made some time in the following week. The following week came, and I received another email stating that a decision would come Friday or the following Monday. Each day came and went. Today marks two weeks from the day I was told that a decision would be given either Friday or Monday, and I have received no further updates or decisions from the company. I accepted a role with another company and withdrew my name from consideration because I truly believe I would never receive any notice. I would have had no issue with the company stating that were selecting another candidate, but to be left in limbo after several "updates" and assurances that I would be contacted with the results at various dates seems very unprofessional. I was impressed with the company and those I interviewed with, but I feel like I may have dodged a bullet. Hopefully this is was just an anomaly and not standard practice.
