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

Negotiation Details – There was not negotiation. It was just laid out as this is what is paid.

Interview Details – The interview process is very intenese, because IDR is looking for long term employees. IDR invests lots of time and money in their employees, and they like to make sure that the partnership is right for them and the person that they are hiring.
Interview Question – "WHY do want to be a part of this company?" (they are not looking for scripted or superficial answers here Answer Question
Negotiation Details – It wasn't hard for me, because I knew that the opportunity was a once in a lifetime kind of deal
I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Internal Data Resources in July 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 –
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 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)

Very Difficult Interview
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Internal Data Resources in April 2012.
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.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Internal Data Resources in March 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.
The process took 1 week - interviewed at Internal Data Resources in July 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.

Pros: “I took a position with IDR directly after graduating from college and would not have traded my time there for any other entry level opportunity.
