    IT Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral - 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 Questions
    • 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.

    Recruiter Interview

    I interviewed through a recruiter. 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 Questions

    Recruiter Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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 Questions
    • The usual more difficult question- "What are your major weaknesses? What would a former employer say your biggest weakness is?   Answer Question

    Recruiter At IDR Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. 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 Questions
    • The questions were very simplistic and the interviewer must have just finished her new employee training or was reading off a script.   Answer Question

    Recruiter Interview

    I interviewed through college or university. 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)

    Interview Questions
    • 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 interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Internal Data Resources in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Extremely extensive interview that included a "boot camp" afterwards with the company. Thought it went so well, I even sent a thank you email and let them know I was interested in taking the next step, which I did. I got no response to my emails and never got a call saying I wasn't right for the position.
