    I applied online and got a phone call from HR to schedule an interview. The first round was with the HR head, she asked the general questions about my profile and background. Next week, she scheduled a conference call with a predictive modeller and a senior person from analytics department. They didn't inform me of their decision until I got an automated reject three weeks later.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ingram Micro in August 2016.

    Interview

    My interview process with Ingram Micro was collectively negative in all aspects. From disorganization between the various interviewers, interviewers who seemed genuinely disinterested in conducting the interview, and VERY poor communication on the recruiter's part I would not recommend anyone to expect a speedy process while interviewing here. The entire process took 10+ weeks. Basically, it was a highly disorganized and unprofessional process that reflected poorly on what is suppose to be a great company.

    First, I did a 45 minute phone interview in late-August with a recruiter followed by a approximately 1-hour phone interview with the would-be manager one week later. After an in-person interview was conducted 1.5 weeks following the second phone interview, there were 2 weeks of zero communication from the recruiter.

    After reaching out several times, I was finally interviewed for a third time over the phone by another hiring manager for what was an 8-minute interview of a manager trying to get off the phone by informing me he would be giving me his recommendation. Shockingly, I received very little communication for approximately 3.5 weeks with responses including generic answers of "We still have not received word on this position". In addition, I had to reach out to the recruiter on numerous occasions to even receive that response.

    After another 3.5 weeks I was told that I was a highly recommended candidate, however, the position for which I applied for was no longer supported in my region...? I was then referred to interview for another position with a different hiring manager and department. After very little communication and another poorly conducted in-person interview, I had to reach out to the recruiter on various occasions for weeks to receive any sort of update.

    In summary, even if I was offered the position I would have decline. If this is how slow and disorganized a massive international organization works in recruitment, I cannot begin to imagine the egregious day-to-day for an employee.

    Technical Support Specialist II Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ingram Micro (Buffalo, NY).

    Interview

    First was a phone screen from someone in the HR dept then the 1on1 on-site. They asked a lot your typical interview questions and then they ask the technical questions to make sure you're "worthy" for a technical position. It's pretty average for the most part.

    Associate Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ingram Micro (Irvine, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and by the end of a week had an 1:1 interview scheduled for the next Monday (my birthday, actually!). The first interview was with the group manager. That one seemed to go well, so she moved me on to the next (final) round interview. This was with 2 of the team's marketing managers. We spoke about my experience, why they like the company.
    Overall, it seemed like a pretty standard interview process, but the team over at Ingram really did a good job of making the whole process bearable. Even though it's nerve-wracking to go in to interview for a new job, no one gave off a hostile vibe.
    Unfortunately, a week after the final interview I got a call saying they had decided to go with another candidate. But I was very impressed by how quickly the process moved. Applied wednesday, interviewed monday, interviewed the next monday, and got the (unfortunate) call the next monday.

    took 3 weeks. 2 interviews with manager and no HR meeting. They were very quick to select someone. I found later that this company is interested to hire and fire every other day. So, it is not a place to work and spend 8 hours a day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ingram Micro (Buffalo, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was very impressed with the interview process, I had a phone interview first that lasted about 20 min, and a week later got called in for a face to face interview. It was very relaxed yet formal, i felt like I was having a conversation with a friend about a job. I was then told I would hear something within a week or two.
