    Vender Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Iron Mountain Inc in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview came from a recruitment firm. Meeting the IT Manager and one of the key workers, they seemed friendly yet they were honest about the culture there. There is definitely a struggle within ranks. It's that visable. The problem was what they were looking for ultimately different than interpreted.

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Iron Mountain Inc in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Nascent marketing organization. Interview process took a very long time and was far too exhaustive for a mid-level marketing position I was invited to apply for but never really had a chance of getting. 3 telephone interviews, 9 1:1 interviews, 2 strategy/planning presentations, a personality test & very hard-to-get references (had to track 1 person down from 12 years ago) over ~9 weeks. There were several strange delays in the process -- the longest was between my last interview and the decision. As it turns out, I was just fodder until they lined up another "friend". Humiliating. If you have significant history with the hiring manager, go for it. Otherwise, be very careful with your dignity, your time investment and the favors you request from others. One other thing ... some of the junior people seemed to be overqualified and pigeon-holed while external people are being hired above them. That may not bode well for internal advancement potential or the working environment.

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Iron Mountain Inc in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had phone interview first which lasted about 15 minutes. Recuriter was very prompt in setting up an in face interview with the hiring manager. Next interview happened the very next day with 2 hiring managers. Very professional and went very well. The third interview was then with 2 more hiring mangers and HR. The final interview was another team 2 of hiring managers. Took about a week before I received the offer which is contingent upon passing the background check and drug screen.

    You could tell by the interviews that they are a results oriented company. Mentioned that in the interview as well. They ask situational questions based on your passed experiences. Interview process took 3-4 weeks.

    The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Iron Mountain Inc in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interviewing process is very complicated. You first meet with the hiring manager and after a few days they call you for a second interview to give you the details of a third and final interview; where you must present an essay on whichever topic they assign, you will have to do a powerpoint presentation with all the managers and supervisors invited from different departments, and to finalize you must go thru a panel interview of 100 questions. You must be prepared to wait for at least 2 weeks before they make a decision on the right candidate
