    Human Resources Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montvale, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Ingersoll-Rand in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    External recruiter. Interviewed hiring manager and senior leader. Then interviewed with key stakeholders. Key stakeholder group included a few people who would be reporting to me. A lot of repetition speaking with so many people. Felt like hiring is a consensus decision, which ended up mirroring the corporate culture. It was an OK process. Best recruiting I've ever experienced was at Coca Cola.

    Negotiation Details

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ingersoll-Rand.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter called based off of Linked In profile. Interview was with Regional Manager. Discussion focused on operations, P&L, and margin growth. No sales responsibilities or control. After interview, I got a call back to interview with branch manager and the other two division managers (sales and controls). Lots of questions regarding experiences, methods, prior successes, etc. After the group interview, there was another lunch and an offer. I didn't like the lack of sales control yet job success significantly restrained by sales.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Ingersoll-Rand.

    Interview Details

    IR brings in a lot of contract help for certain projects, but then, let's go of full time PMs and dissolves global PMO department. Uncertain times in reorganization.

    Interview Questions
    • Managers & interview panel are 'forced' to ask questions from the targeted selection list. STAR format is imperative.
      Examples: Tell me about a time when your standard approach to problem solving didn’t produce the desired solution. What did you do? What was the outcome? What did you learn?
      Describe a time when you actively listened to the concerns of others and it changed your opinion. What did you learn? What did you do differently?

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ingersoll-Rand in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Following the initial submission of my resume and application, a preliminary phone interview was conducted with a low level HR manager, afterwards I was contacted by the national manager for the marketing group and was subsequently recommended to local manager for interview. My interview was with 6 different members of the department over 2 one hour interview sessions. Questions where mainly behavioral based. Take your time while answering and follow the STAR method for answers you will be fine. I was told I was the candidate of choice but it would be a while before I could be hired due to a company wide hiring freeze. Approximately, a month later I received an email from HR that the position I had interviewed for was moved to a new location.
