Application Details

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Insight Global.

Interview Details

Two interviews. Initial interview was a standard interview getting to know about your experience and the position. Second interview was a lunch to see how you can fare in a social settting. The recruiter I worked with was amazing and was on top of every aspect of the interview and was awesome about getting feedback very promptly.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Insight Global.

    Interview Details

    The process starts with an initial phone interview (tell me about yourself, where did you go to school, why did you want to go there, why did you choose your major). It is all about connectivity. If you connect with the interviewer, they will bring you in for a face to face where you will have 3 separate interviews where they will basically ask you the same questions during each interview. They are going to look for you to drive the conversation as much as possible. Finally, if they like you, they will invite you to come back for a lunch interview where they will see you in a sales environment, like when you're out with clients. Other than that, it really isn't a tough process. If you like small talk then you will have a breeze with the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Insight Global.

    Interview Details

    The interview felt like a joke and it was not worth the time to go in person. I was contacted by a recruiter through LinkedIn. We had a brief phone interview in which he spoke very quickly and got me excited about the company. They keep up appearances by having a very nice office location and requiring business-formal attire.

    However, when I walked in 15-mins early (as instructed) I was surprised there was no receptionist; I thought he/she may have run to the bathroom so I waited before picking up the phone that had a sign saying, "For assistance please pick up phone."

    I was led to a conference room and I waited for awhile before the recruiter walked in to let me know that my interviewer, a director at IGI, would not be able to make it and that he would conduct the interview himself. I was surprised that a recruitment company that appears to seek humble, confident and professional individuals doesn't prioritize its own recruitment process, and that it is entirely acceptable for upper level management to miss interviews. From this experience, I would wonder how much management is, in fact, invested in employees and causes me to seriously doubt my desire to work at a company that treats its interviewees like sheep...one after another after another.

    At first, the recruiter was very likable, but later seemed distracted, texting on his Blackberry, and even had his shoe up on the table. Very casual and overconfident. Being a member of Greek life is important. Also, if you take the lead and try interrupting instead of observing normal interview courtesies, like waiting to speak until there's a pause, you may come off as the "extrovert" they are looking for.

    Also, they will tell you again and again that they have recently been ranked #4 of best places to work for in "Yahoo Finance," but actually, the news article is not written by Yahoo as it appears. It was posted on 247WallSt.com, which compiled the list from the "employee" ratings on Glassdoor, which also seem phony: another review here confirms my suspicion that employees are required to write positive reviews once hired.

    All in all, in my opinion, this company is not worth your time.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Insight Global.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted through LinkedIn. The recruiter called me and told me a little about the position and the company. He talked very fast and seemed like a "yes" man. Within a week I had an in person interview with him. Although he was very nice, he was indeed a "yes" man, which made him come off as fake. He seemed very distracted during our interview, which was pretty casual and basically to see if I could hold a conversation and if my personality would fit in with that of the company. He was texting during the interview, which is not professional at all. Both on the phone and in person he kept asking "So do you have any questions? Any other questions?" I think he wanted to gauge my curiosity and interest within the company.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Insight Global in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter for the company found my resume on Monster and followed up with a call and e-mail. After the phone screening (super short, basically to see if I was outgoing enough) a time was chosen for me to come in to the local office for two one-on-one interviews. The recruiter let me know that my background experience didn't matter. What they were looking for was someone to lead the conversation. Based off of this, I went into the interview and tried to get to know the two people who were interviewing me and asked them a ton of questions. I spent between 45 minutes to 1 hour with each person. One of the people I interviewed with told me they were looking for young people fresh out of college with tons of energy and drive. He flat out said "we are not looking for a 40 something person. We need fresh young faces." Based off the people who interviewed me and doing a little research into the company, the typical worker at insight global is white with blonde hair and blue eyes, extremely fit and very good looking. I consider myself good looking enough (although I am not stereotypical looking) but found the company to be too superficial for my liking. They didn't try and get to know me in the interview process and I guess I didn't fit the mold of what they were looking for, so I didn't get another interview.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Insight Global in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied via LinkedIn, got a call the next day for a phone screen. The recruiter on the phone was very nice, however I did my research before going into the in-person interview. This is not a company you want to work for unless you have very limited options (according to reviews) and I couldn't agree more from the interview process. It was very unprofessional and informal. You get the feeling as if the manager cared more about the size of his watch and letting everyone know how much money he makes than finding a candidate that would do the job well.

     I had real outside sales experience and knew right away that they were not going to like this because they couldn't lie to me as easily about what the job entailed compared to some sorority girl who thinks she's just going to be entertaining clients every night (you're not, it's 99% cold calls to solicit references).

    If you make the second interview they take you out to lunch and if they don't like you then they drop you off in the parking garage and say we will be in contact. If this sounds like a job for you than by all means make sure you are loud, attractive, and have a suit almost as nice as theirs.

    The hiring process at Insight Global was very smooth. I was contacted initally by an internal recruiter via linked in. The process consisted of a phone screen, office inital interview, and then a lunch with the sales manager. I was very pleased with their process and felt that I received an accurate representation of the company. They answered all of my questions with ease and made me feel comfortable in the work environment.

    Interview Details

    I originally applied for this position a couple months ago. After about a week I contacted the recruiter (both through linkedin and email) in my local area to know what the status of my application was. I never heard back. They recently posted for the same position in which I contacted them again however this time was contacted about a phone interview. It went really well in which the recruiter told me she thought Id be a good fit for the local company based on my experience and personality and would get back to me by the end of the week. After a week of not hearing from her I contacted her asking her what the status was in which she told me told, "I am not the best fit for the position." If thats how they felt all along I would have rather of been told the first time around then waiting over a week to hear that.

    Interview Details

    Very positive atmosphere in the office. I walked in early and was taken to a separate interview room right away with no waiting involved to speak to an account manager. It speaks a lot about a company when they are professional in the hiring process.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Insight Global in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Corporate Recruiter reached out to me initially on LinkedIn. First phone interview went really well, felt like the person on the other end of the phone truly enjoyed their job. Completely different experience during the first and second in-person interviews with the sales manager at the Kansas City office. She was nice enough, but I basically felt like she was giving a sales pitch the whole time and expected me to jump out of my seat when she went on and on about the salary potential and all of the fun "office outings." Overall, very unprofessional process and I felt like I was interviewing with someone who was much more immature and unprofessional than myself, not to mention, only a few years older. I would not have taken the job had I gotten the offer because of how unimpressed I was by the whole process.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were easy, they basically just want to get to know you and see if you can hold a conversation. Just the usual, "why do you see yourself at Insight" type questions. My advice: ask the sales manager tons of questions about herself.   Answer Question
