    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Ingersoll Rand.

    Interview Details

    I had an atypical interview process. I was interviewed by an alum from my university (behavioral). After a couple of weeks, I was contacted by an Operations Manager for an additional interview for Trane. After completing that, I was interviewed once more by two Systems Engineers at the manufacturing plant.

    The overall process was surprisingly lengthy (not typical for IR based on colleagues' experiences) but very pleasant. HR is very helpful and will do their best to answer all our questions. The nature of the questions were behavioral for the most part aside from later interviews with future supervisor that probed more deeply into the type of employee that I would become in order to find a fit between you and the company.

    Technical questions were not a part of the process, but they do want to find out what experiences you have in order to prepare you for a job in operations (tooling, theory, lean manufacturing, etc).

    Awesome company to work for!

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Ingersoll Rand in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    A phone interview that consisted of only STAR related questions on past projects and classes. The interviewer was from university relations and very pleasant to talk to. This was the first of a series of phone interviews in their recruiting process. The interview was only about a half hour long.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Ingersoll Rand.

    Interview Details

    Process took 3 months. This is typical for IR, although I wish it wasn't. Onboarding was pretty quick though. They got me in place and work commenced immediately. I was hired going into the busy contract negotiation season, so that was a factor.

    Negotiation Details
    Did not negotiate base salary, but rather more vacation time for first year. Ongoing salary raises are standard, so I valued time off more.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Ingersoll Rand in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I got an interview offer through a career fair at my college. The interview itself was mostly based on behavior based questions and the structure was pretty relaxed. The interview was about an hour long and very open ended even questions presented. The person conducting the interview worked with you if you got stuck and had follow up question to keep the conversation going fluidly.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ingersoll Rand in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, panel interview then individual interview, it was exhausting, scary uncomfortable. The panel that interviewed me was unfriendly and seemed cold. When you pull up to the building there is a guard there, make sure your interview lets them know you are coming.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Ingersoll Rand.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume onto a university job board and to IR. They scheduled an interview with me for the following week. They called and emailed me 6 weeks later saying I did not get the internship.

    Good: it was a positive experience with friendly and fair recruiters.
    Bad: It took them 6 weeks to let me know the outcome.

    Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ingersoll Rand.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted after submitting resume and fast-tracked for a day-long series of one-on-one interviews. At the end of the interview day, both the hiring manager and recruiter said the process would move to the next phase and they would arrange logistics as I was recruited from out of town. However, a week later, HR left a voicemail simply stating they were going to look elsewhere. It took several attempts before HR replied to my request for a more informational explanation as to the change in response. Despite the odd finish to the interview process, it seems like a good company with dedicated employees.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Ingersoll Rand.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter was unprofessional. Never sent me a description of the position (expected me to look it up) and was difficult to schedule an interview with. He didn't even bother to tell me the location of the job which was in a different state. I was also well overqualified for opening. The recruiter never got back to me. because it was obvious he picked up on his mistakes.
