    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buffalo, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ingram Micro.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through indeed.com. Was contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview 2 days after applying. Had the phone interview the next day. The phone interview was very easy and took about 30 minutes. No difficult questions, just general info about the job and she asked me about my work history. At the end of the interview, she asked to set up an in-person interview and I did; it was set for 2 days after my phone interview. In person interview was a little more advanced. The interviewer (who became my boss) was a little unorthodox and asked a lot of "get to know you" questions about my past and my hobbies so be prepared for that potentially. Was offered the job later that day, no negotiations.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ingram Micro.

    Interview Details

    There would be a initial phone interview and then you will have to answer a verbal test and personality test, which will takes you one and a half hour. After this, they will schedual a long group interview. For me, there are more than 11 people join my interview and they will ask all the detail of basic statistics knowledge based on your background and former projects. You need to be very prepared of these knowledges since there questions are all about details of basic principles.

    Trainer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Ingram Micro.

    Interview Details

    Overall, turned out to be an unpleasant experience and a big waste of time – more than 6 weeks of “processes” and “updates”.
    I had to complete about 6 different interviews, tests and plenty of phone calls that all went “great” and Ingram kept saying – “we remain very interested”. Be careful about understanding words such as “very interested” since they can actually mean nothing at the end.
    The biggest problem with the company’s approach to interviewing is the fact that they will act like your salary expectations are just fine from the very first HR screen and then later in means nothing. That is simply wrong!
    They do play the following games: 1) waiting with comments such as “we are very interested”, 2) keep lowering the “possible offer”, 3) making it look like something is being decided, 4) “you are so great, we are reviewing you for another, better position!” – caution – waiting game again.
    Initially, the HR person was absolutely fine with my salary expectations but somehow, after all “great” interviews, every time he came back with $10-15k lower “possible range”. I felt like I was tested whether I stand my ground and understand the self-worth value. I did remind them about the expectations I have discussed every time, however, the HR person did not act like it essential for me. There should be salary negotiations, but it is unethical to proceed with 6 interviews and make wait to announce a whopping $40k lower “maxing possible base”!! How can you even proceed with a candidate while knowing that “the possible offer” could be completely off ???
    Anyway, after a longer than 2 weeks waiting game, I pushed the recruiter to “update” me on where we stand. He called and stated the following: 1) “the possible offer is $40k less than what I was expecting, 2) if I agree to that number, there will be “no merit pay” – very unusual, 3) “we feel that you can be at a higher level”.
    SO, here was my BIG test of Ingram – I asked “if I were to accept the offer of $40k lower, what is the process and long would it take (we were 6 weeks into the process)”. Behold for the best answer possible!! – “Everyone is ready not to proceed. It would look strange if you were to accept a much lower offer” ????!!!%%%??? Why did you even call and give that much lower number to me??? At that point, after a wasteful 6 weeks of my time, I said farewell Ingram.
    I maybe missing something, but this was a very strange approach to finding a candidate.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ingram Micro in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    They first contacted me to set up a phone interview with a recruiter. The interview was over an hour long and they recommended me for the Market Development Specialist position in lieu of a position I originally applied for. Then I was given an in-person interview after waiting for 2 weeks for them to call me to set it up. My interview went well. But, it has been over 2 weeks again to get any information.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Ingram Micro.

    Interview Details

    One phone Interview followed by an in person interview with the manager, and a final interview with the director/VP of the department. Basic phone interview. The in person interview wasn't too bad, just know your resume and be ready to show how you are different from all the other candidates. For my position, the recruiter told me that there were 4 other candidates already in Que and that my chances were pretty slim. I got the job.
