    Communications Manager/HQ Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Davidson, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Davidson, NC
    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ingersoll-Rand in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Commodity Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Davidson, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Davidson, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ingersoll-Rand in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    This was a very awesome process. The way it worked is a recruiter calls you after they receive a large number of applications and at this point if you get a call, they are somewhat interested. They give you a brief run down on the phone screen and find out about you and then comes time for the back-to-back panel interviews. Three people sit on a panel and they grill you on technical questions and a few STAR questions. All in all, just be yourself and you'll do well.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    For an entry level job like this, there isn't much of a negotiation phase. They extend the offer over the phone via the hiring manager and you either accept it or they give it to someone else.

Tresses me with respect and seemed to go the extra mile looking for an interview with the shops the day of the test. Overall, I was pleased and left confident.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kingsport, TN
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ingersoll-Rand in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with the recruiter which was extremely helpful in preparing me for the official phone interview with the hiring director. He didn't prep me for the interview but gave me enough information to make it beneficial to both me and the interviewing party. The director that interviewed me asked very clear questions and provided answers to many questions that I brought with me. He was friendly, but direct. I appreciated his honesty throughout the interview. He told me that I didn't have enough sales experience, but that he felt as though I would fit in well with the company. After the interview, the recruiter contacted me to let me know that the director was interested in me regarding another position within the company. However, this never seemed to come to a conclusion. I did receive another e-mail from the director with a link to another job position, but I never heard anything else.

    Service Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Ingersoll-Rand in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Temp to hire in a different position led to job offer in newly created position. I was offered the job but was required to go through interview process although I don't know if there were any other applicants. Pretty standard interview, in my opinion it was a formality. The company did a background check and drug screen and I began the job immediately. I was not given any training and it was (and continues to be) trial by fire.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were all very standard and nothing that struck me as unusual or difficult.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation invited, it was offered and accepted. I will say I am disappointed that in reality the incentive pay was described inaccurately.
