    Contracts Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I was connected with a recruiter about a week later after I applied online and was scheduled to interview the following week with a few of the team members. The recruiter called me a couple of days after I applied and asked questions about myself and my experience. I initially applied for another position but was recommended this by the recruiter, based off of my work and school experience. The interview was delayed about 30 minutes due to the lack of communication between the recruiter and the hiring manager (I believe the recruiter was out of town and didn't tell the hiring manager I'd be in for an interview at the specific time I was scheduled?) although I checked-in with the front desk. So, I was in the waiting room for a while and I knew the hiring manager from the beginning was irritated, which I am sure set the tone for the entire interview. The interview itself was okay, I was asked a series of typical questions relating to various work scenarios.

    Senior Network Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Insight in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Process was very slow and not detailed. I spoke to the recruiter on the phone (which was fairly normal - nothing really outstanding or horrible) and had a "technical" phone screen with what I can only assume was a junior engineer. The time between interviews was pretty long with no real reason as to why.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Insight.

    Interview Details

    Was referenced by an employee and was contacted by an Insight recruiter. Phone based interview was pretty standard with questions about background and selling points of Insight. Follow up interview was with an Operations Manager with a deeper dive on previous interview questions. More focused on personality and interaction with internal support resources. Next step was face to face interview with hiring manager with questions focusing on segment experience and technical background. Final interview was with VP but more of a formality since hiring manager ultimately extended the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing in particular. Pretty standard questions for an IT sales position.   Answer Question

    Sales Account Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Insight.

    Interview Details

    I RESPONDED TO A JOB FAIR, INTERVIEWED WITH THE DEPARTMENT DIRECTOR, THE HR PERSON AND THE ASSIGNED SUPERVISOR. I LATER TRANSFERRED TO THE INBOUND SALES TEAM. I served under ten different SUPERVISORS during MY NINE YEAR PERIOD OF EMPLOYMENT. I really do not know about the new interview process as it now exists I am certain that it is now much different than it was in the good old days as it was when I joined the firm. INSIGHT DIRECT USA is a fine company. I made a critical mistake that was the proximate cause of my dismissal and have only myself to blame. I have asked INSIGHT DIRECT USA to allow me to return to the firm and was told that I would not be allowed to return to my former employment.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Insight.

    Interview Details

    A couple of interviews, first with HR, then with department managers. Was pretty easy to get into. No drug testing or background check was run.

    Negotiation Details
    Very simple to get employed at Insight. As far as salary, they said they hired me at $36k per year, come to find out that wasn't the case, it was lower than that, I realized after I started getting paid and they didn't budge on it. Of course, it's pretty hard to convince them that they promised you more after you've quit your last job and taken full employment at Insight. They've kind of got you at that point, don't they?

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Insight.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter will contact you to set up a phone interview. Once you have the phone interview you are then selected for a face-to-face interview. The whole process took about 3 weeks. They try to get you to losen up at the beginning of the interview, but do not let that fool you. Stay professional even though they may seem laid back.
