I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Insight Global.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a corporate recruiter who tried to sell me on Inisght Global and set up a phone interview with me. I had the phone interview which was very basic... questions were not hard, mainly just wanted to get to know my personality. The recruiter immediately set up an on sight interview for me. The on sight was so unprofessional. I talked to 3 account managers for no longer than 3-5 minutes each. The only serious question asked was "why sales" but other than that it was very conversational. The corporate recruiter called me a few days later to inform me that I was not offered a position or further interview.
Interview Question – No difficult questions at all. Mostly conversational, asked what I do for fun at school. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Insight Global in June 2013.
Interview Details – Initial interview was with the recruiter and it was a just a quick phone conversation. He did most of the talking and didn't really even ask me too many questions. Mostly just telling me about Insight Global and what they're looking for. Next, I met with one of the Account Managers at the office for an interview, it probably took 30 minutes. She asked me typical sales interview questions and it really wasn't too difficult. She told me about the company, answered questions I had. There was lots of general small talk. Next I went into the office and every single person came and shook my hand and introduced themselves. Next I met the sales manager and talked to him for maybe 5-10 minutes. He asked me a few more questions (why sales? Why insight global? etc.) He also asked me what my favorite bars were in the city and what I do on the weekends. They definitely want someone super chatty and social, don't be afraid to tell them that you like to go out with friends for drinks a lot. It was almost unprofessional how much we talked about bars, drinking, etc. Anyways, the third round was a lunch interview with the account manager I had talked with on the second interview and the sales manager again. It was really just a conversation, they want to see how you carry yourself in that type of situation. It was a little awkward though, I got the feeling that they had already chosen someone and didn't even want to be there.
Interview Question – Why sales? Where would you be at midnight on a Friday? Answer Question

Interview Question – Why do you want to be in Sales and what can you contribute to our company Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Insight Global in February 2014.
Interview Details – I applied online after a family friend mentioned the company to me. A few days later I received a phone call asking when I would be available for a phone screen. I went through the phone screen and was asked common questions, why Insight Global, tell me about your background, hobbies, etc. I matched the criteria she was looking for and I was prompted for a face to face interview. I was living in PA and interviewing for Boston so I had to commute. I had my face to face interview on a Thursday, dress is business professional, suit and tie, make sure you look your best, because it seems that everyone in the office was clean cut and attractive. I interviewed with two sales managers and an account executive 1 on 1, 1 at a time. Most of the questions were the same, Why sales? What Motivates you? What do you know about Insight Global? Then they ask if you have any questions, This is KEY. Be ready with 5-6 GOOD questions. The job is conversation based so this is what they are judging you on. Ask about them, show that you did your research on the company, the interviewers, the culture, everything, and be as original as possible with your questions. STAND OUT. Make sure you have energy too, be over the top with energy, drink an energy drink or an expresso shot before you go in. I'm serious. After the interviews I was asked to meet the sales team, they were trained to berate you with friendliness and enthusiasm so be ready to shake a lot of hands in a short amount of time. I was then asked to come back to the office the next day for a second interview. It is the lunch interview. I met at the office and went out with 1 sales manager. Make small talk on the way, don't leave any awkward silences. Find subjects that you can talk to anyone about. This interview was completely natural, it is like having lunch with a friend, but make sure you keep the conversation interesting and fun. This will be your job in the future so you have to prove that you can carry a conversation and be fun to talk to. I went to a sushi restaurant so make sure you know how to use chop sticks. After lunch which lasted an hr, I met with another account manager, and was thanked for coming in. I recieved a phone call on my ride home from the sales manager offering me the position. Make sure you ask after each interviewer is about to leave if they have any hesitations about you. Get it out on the table and prove to them that their hesitations are wrong. Be confident, kill the nerves and own the interview. If you're nervous they won't know the real you. Be prepared, be confident, and be energetic and you will get the job.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Insight Global.
Interview Details – I first spoke with Insight at university's career fair, where I was able to schedule an interview for the very next day. The interview was fairly concise and the university recruiter did most of the talking. He mostly talked about the position and company and would then give you time to respond to what he said. He didn't ask many specific/standard questions--just gave you time to respond to what he said and then respond to your response. At the end, he said he needed to review the applicants and would get back to us about the second interview, however some others received a second interview offer at the end of the first interview. Heard back by beginning of the following week.
