I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Internal Data Resources in October 2010.
Interview Details – 4 interviews... boot camp/work outs/ work outs/ work out and I think there was an interview somewhere in there.
Negotiation Details – a joke
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Internal Data Resources.
Interview Details – Went through a phone interview, 2 in person interviews, and then last step was a final round panel interview (did not attend). Interview questions were pretty typical, had to read some articles about recruiting and then be prepared to discuss them. Also had extensive references request- minimum of 7. Felt some of interviews were redundant being that the same questions were asked even though I could see my answers from previous interviews right in front of the interviewers.
Interview Question – The usual more difficult question- "What are your major weaknesses? What would a former employer say your biggest weakness is? Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Internal Data Resources in June 2012.
Interview Details – I found out about IDR via LinkedIn and the connection I made stated they were currently hiring. I had an initial discovery call with the Operations Manager and followed up with a more in depth phone interview the same week. She stated she would contact me the following Monday to setup another interview with her boss. I had to contact her via email and phone and she continued to make excuses about being busy and would get back to me the following week. After numerous attempts to get a response I decided if they are that slack on handling a simple interview process why on earth would I want to work for such an unorganized company. If you are looking to pursue a career with IDR, my advice is look elsewhere as they are a waste of time.
Interview Question – The questions were very simplistic and the interviewer must have just finished her new employee training or was reading off a script. Answer Question

Interview Details – I did a phone interview, followed by reading a few articles. Then did another phone interview where i was asked to come in and shadow for the day. I drove three hours and was there all day and also did a bootcamp with them. After that they asked me to come up again but I did not have the money or time for the long interview process without reimbursement so i decided not to continue.
Interview Question – Why would you be good in sales? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Internal Data Resources in May 2013.
Interview Details – I was treated very well during the interview process. It started off with a basic phone call then a face to face interview with a couple members of the team. I then got to do some shadowing, which was unique but beneficial.
The follow-up was the best I have ever expereinced. Expectations were also very clear and met each time. I loved the people, the company and what they had to offer but chose not to move cities and stay home where I am from due to personal reasons, and unfortunately, they do not have an office here.
Interview Question – What would your last boss say about you? What are you not good at? What can you bring to the team? Why IDR? Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Internal Data Resources in January 2011.
Interview Details – Working out - "It’s so fundamental to the company’s culture that internal job candidates are invited to join the boot camp to bond with the team."
Most likely if you dont do well at boot camp or on fun run you will not be asked back. If you do good on one you will be asked to join the other (has something to do with recruiting but im not sure what)
Come in and shadow
Write an essay
Meet with mgmt about 3 times and then they make their decision
Drug test and background check
Interview Question – Are you an A player? Ready to work hard? (When I say hard I dont mean put in 100% that means giving up your free time and family time to work hard - eventually they say it pays off and you get to play hard) View Answer
Negotiation Details – Its recruiting they love to negotiate and get you at bottom dollar. They need employees because the turn over is so high so ask for what you want and they are bound to give it to you, but remember they are firm when they say EVERYONE CAN BE REPLACED (is that what you want to be know for is replaceable)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Internal Data Resources in January 2008.
Interview Details – You will have a short phone interview which they ask basic questions. The face to face interview is them telling you how hard you have to work and how great the company is. They will try and cat and mouse you if they want you, basically play mind games with you to take the job. Unfortunately it worked on me.
Interview Question – They ask your background to find out if you have money. View Answer
The process took 1 week - interviewed at Internal Data Resources in May 2010.
Interview Details – Phone interview, called me to their location for an interview. Only 3 people in their New Dallas office. Each one of them interviewed me. Next day came back for a panel interview. All three of them sat around a small table and interviewed me together. Then I came back for shadowing. Then I went to work out with them to their weekly workout session. Next day they called me and asked for references. They never called my references. Next week I sent a follow up email, no response. Week after, I left a voicemail - no response.
Very unprofessional, after interviewing for a week - the applicant should know if they have decided to move on to other applicants instead of just leaving the person hanging. Should at least have the decency to return email/calls instead of making the applicant feel like a stalker.
The branch manager for Dallas was very immature, but that should not be held against IDR. Maybe other branch managers are different.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Internal Data Resources in January 2011.
Interview Details – I first met IDR at a job fair. They had two representatives who were extremely nice and outgoing. I thought that I would get along with them. First, there was a phone interview with the branch coordinator, which was really basic. Next, they had me come in to their branch in Atlanta for the next round of interviews. It was extremely long and lasted almost two hours. You had to talk to all of the employees, which was around 10, and the majority hadn't even reviewed my resume before they entered the room. Overall, I was not thrilled about the position after the whole experience.
Interview Question – They were all basic behavioral questions. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Didn't seem like a fit for me.
I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Internal Data Resources.
Interview Details – The hiring and interview process consists of multiple steps. You have an interview with the Corporate Recruiter so she can get a feel of who you are and your experience. Then if she thinks you're a good fit, you meet with someone, like an Account Manager, at the office so she can interview you as well and she will have you do some screens to see how you are on the phone. Make it past that step and you have a panel interview with multiple people from the office.
Interview Question – 3 weaknesses (make them more about what you need to improve on and how you are working on improving that). In the panel interview they really push you with the questions to see if you are actually fully committed to the job and if you are a good fit for this stressful position. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate because I was right out of college and didn't have anything to negotiate with.
