    Pension Analyst Interview

    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Ingersoll Rand.

    Used behavior based questions in a panel setting. Make sure you have questions prepared to ask panel and take your time answering questions. Be patient sometimes they are very slow making a decision.

    Interview Questions

    • Group panel, difficult to get feedback. Study and memorize how to answer these types of questions properly and adequately. Do your research   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ingersoll Rand.

    Interview

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Ingersoll Rand (Davidson, NC).

    Interview

    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?

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Interview

    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!
