    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ingersoll Rand in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was an informal interview over phone with the project head. They wanted to develop an application in SpringMVC. Mostly the head asked me questions related to SpringMVC and how I will be able to develop the application they need. He was very friendly and we had a good conversation. I went directly through referral and in the next round with HR they asked me if I will need sponsorship in future. This is where they could not make an offer to me. If you don't need sponsorship then its a very good project to work on as you will get complete freedom to design the application.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Ingersoll Rand.

    Interview

    I had an atypical interview process. I was interviewed by an alum from my university (behavioral). After a couple of weeks, I was contacted by an Operations Manager for an additional interview for Trane. After completing that, I was interviewed once more by two Systems Engineers at the manufacturing plant.

    The overall process was surprisingly lengthy (not typical for IR based on colleagues' experiences) but very pleasant. HR is very helpful and will do their best to answer all our questions. The nature of the questions were behavioral for the most part aside from later interviews with future supervisor that probed more deeply into the type of employee that I would become in order to find a fit between you and the company.

    Technical questions were not a part of the process, but they do want to find out what experiences you have in order to prepare you for a job in operations (tooling, theory, lean manufacturing, etc).

    Awesome company to work for!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ingersoll Rand.

    Interview

    Process took 3 months. This is typical for IR, although I wish it wasn't. Onboarding was pretty quick though. They got me in place and work commenced immediately. I was hired going into the busy contract negotiation season, so that was a factor.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me of a time when you convinced management to make a change   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate base salary, but rather more vacation time for first year. Ongoing salary raises are standard, so I valued time off more.

They use SBU's (strategic business units) due to their large diversification in many markets. Due to this business model, an employee generally felt as if they were heard, appreciated, and valued. The company compensates its employees well, and the packages offered are highly competitive. Anyone looking to go to work for one of their units will find a company that invests in its employees, never rests on its laurels, and is continually adapting to meet the changing landscape of whatever channel of business they are in. Wonderful company!” – Full Review
