    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ingram Content Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Contact with this company seems erratic and disorganized at best. I was contacted by a recruiter to ask if I was interested in a particular position. I affirmed I was and was actually quite excited to learn more, but never heard from them again. As the gatekeepers of the company, HR has a responsibility to treat candidates with respect. I would be wary of joining the company based on my HR interactions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ingram Content Group (Nashville, TN).

    Interview

    HR is completely clueless. They will email you back and forth to schedule a phone interview... Your "phone interview" is them telling you that they already the position BEFORE the initial email. Very unprofessional and unorganized.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ingram Content Group.

    Interview

    Great recruiter. A fairly typical screening process, included an assessment. I appreciate the due diligence of including a personality assessment and the importance of these for certain positions. However, in my experience, I would have expected to see it later in the process to help push through the final candidates. Basing a decision solely on the results of a test leads me to believe the organization is not confident enough in their own abilities. I would also recommend giving feedback to your candidates as to why. They deserve it.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ingram Content Group (Nashville, TN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was well organized. I only thought that I was having an in person interview with 2 people. This ended up being 3 separate interviews with 4 people (back to back). I would have probably eaten breakfast if I'd have know in advance that I was going to be in the interview(s) for more than 2 hours.

    Inventory Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ingram Content Group (La Vergne, TN) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for this position through LinkedIn and quickly received an email back from their human resources department. I emailed a talent acquisition specialist several times back and forth, had a phone interview, filled out an online personality type test, had in-person interview with potential supervisor and the talent acquisition specialist I had emailed, but then received an email a couple weeks later that they were no longer hiring anyone to fill that position but transferred its job responsibilities between current employees. The interview itself was informal, more conversational than direct question and answer. The woman who interviewed me was very knowledgable and had been with the company for several years. She was very honest about the tedious nature of the position they were hiring for. The interview with the talent acquisition specialist was mostly informational about the company policies, including benefits, vacation time, and retirement plans. Be prepared to ask questions about the company and job responsibilities.

    Senior Systems Engineer Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ingram Content Group.

    Interview

    Second time applying for this position over the course of about four months. First time, I was told that my resume didn't interest them. Then, out of the blue, one of their talent acquisition folks insisted that I reapply. I'm comfortable in my current position, so I thought I'd be cheeky and submit the same resume. Reportedly, it blew the hiring manager away -- same hiring manager, for the same position.

    Two phone interviews later, I was invited to an all-day interview marathon on-site. Met with the hiring manager, his supervisor, and the local VP, all of whom professed to be impressed. Also discovered that none of them had been there more than six months. I found this disturbing, but put it aside.

    After that came the interview with the "technical team." I've been in this business for nearly twenty years, and I've never been raked across the coals like that. Questions ranged from textbook material circa 1995 to personality quizzes such as "name five hobbies that you have." Discovered that the team was just as fresh-faced as the management staff, too.

    Not sure what Ingram's turnover rate is, but it really put me off that neither the engineering team nor the management had been there for more than a few months. Very uncomfortable six-hour affair. Glad I was able to get a birds-eye-view of the situation there before deciding to leave a stable environment.
