    Senior Director Finance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Davidson, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Ingersoll Rand (Davidson, NC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    STAR interview process. Arrogant and ignorant interview panel. Practically impossible to penetrate executive or senior management positions from outside. Company has a strong preference for those that originate their career and develop internally.

    Appears to be a lot of bureaucracy within their organization.

    Declined their offer because they could not meet my salary requirements and friends that I know that have worked their or currently work their advised that it was not a great place to work. Money is not everything but the VP I would be reporting to seemed like he would be extremely toxic to work for.

    Their benefit package was competitive and better than many companies.

    Inside Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ingersoll Rand (Cincinnati, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Very organized and rigid in the interviewing process. Given excellent detail from corporate before interview on what to expect, such as a panel interview, behavioral questions, 90 minutes time frame and the names of who would be there. Turns out there were 3 people and not 2 interviewing me.

    Each one asked a predetermined behavioral question (about 10 total) from a sheet they had from corporate. At times they seemed bored to death and other times they were laughing, always writing notes. A little unnerving. It was an exhausting 90 minutes having to constantly think of past experiences (stories) to answer their questions. But they seemed understanding and appreciative.

    Didn't ever get the feeling they completely understood my background or skills. Wish it could have been more personal and not following a corporate mandated outline.
