    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ingersoll Rand (Tyler, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I met with a couple of recruiters from Ingersoll Rand at the career fair at the 2013 NSBE Fall National Conference in Indianapolisand they referred me to their colleagues at the Trane plant in Tyler Texas.
    3 days later, I got a call from a lady in Tyler who set up a phone screening session. Two days later I had the phone screening session with an early talent recruiter. The following week, I had a phone interview with a panel of 2 engineers who were looking for interns and the lady from the phone screening session.
    The interview was all based on the STAR method (Situation, Task, Approach and Result) all behavioral questions. The interview lasted 30-40 minutes. In the 1st half they asked me their questions and in the 2nd half I got to ask my questions like "what an intern does on a day to day basis" "how the work structure is: group-wise or solo"
    At the end, I was told to expect an email that evening or the next day letting me know the outcome of the interview.
    I received my offer that evening by phone from the Early Talent Recruiter I had worked with from the start. The email containing the written offer followed 10 minutes late

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Ingersoll Rand.

    Interview

    Had one interview with a leadership group of about 10 people. Every person asked multiple questions, but they asked them at any time - not just going from one person to another person. The local leadership didn't ask much except what my prior experiences were and didn't probe deep into my work history. The HR manager asked the harder questions.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions centered around my experience for the job they wanted to fill. There was a timed test for general intelligence. Didn't like doing that   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ingersoll Rand (Davidson, NC) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Standard progressive process: 1) phone interview w/ recruiter; 2) interview w/ hiring manager; 3) panel interviews onsite. The onsite interviews were well coordinated and lasted all day. I met with 8 people and each were assigned a set of behaviors to assess. Yes, that's right, a full-day of behavioral-based interviewing. Once the day wrapped up, I was exhausted, but I had a good feel for the folks I'd be working with, the challenges and if it was a right fit for me. However, in the weeks that followed my day-long interviews, the process seemed to break down. I followed up with both recruiter and manager multiple times on the status of my candidacy, but received no response. This was very disappointing as I had greater expectations of candidate follow-up than what IR provided. Particularly, since I had spent a full day away from my existing job and they had invested in flying me to meet with them. Finally, after five weeks and no communication, I received the obligatory form letter. At this point, I had already moved on and accepted other offers, but at least they offered closure. It's also noteworthy to add that if you do travel and submit an expense report, it takes as long as six weeks to receive payment. In my opinion, this long delay speaks to the company's internal struggles and would make me pause in considering if this is the right place for your career.

    I had high hopes for IR, but in the end they let me down. I would be extremely cautious in pursuing opportunities here.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing totally unexpected, but many of the interviewers are not completely skilled in behavioral-based interviewing and their questions came across as bumbled, requiring the candidate to clarify what they were asking.   Answer Question
