    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Ingersoll-Rand.

    Interview Details

    Office is really nice, modern decor. Hiring process went smoothly, recruiter was thorough and nice. Worst part was a 4 hour interview. Each 1 hour with different managers. That is pretty ridiculous. I answered the same question 2-3 times and was hoarse at the end from talking!

    Interview Details

    Interviewed 4 times at 1-4 time periods and then they never communicated from that point on.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lexington-Fayette, KY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.
