We lead with our heart.

Hunger, Heart and Harmony are at the core of who we are at Insight.

Reach is an extension of the Heart our teammates show every day and is our next step in the evolution of giving at Insight. This program unites all our charitable activities under one single initiative: to support our local communities by providing opportunities for children through our shared love of technology. The future will run on technology, but will be written by the young people we nurture and encourage today.

Some of our Reach beneficiaries include:

  • Make-a-Wish Foundation- 10-year old Avery got to meet the creator of “Halo” action figures. Diego, 8 years old, can now play games and read on his own Microsoft Tablet. Hunter got to throw the first pitch at his favorite baseball team’s game. Insight supported these wishes for these three incredibly deserving youth.
  • Feed My Starving Children, St. Mary’s Food Bank- From Boston and Montreal to Spokane and Tempe, Insight teammates fund mentor programs, equip computer labs, pack food boxes and provide scholarships to the communities in which we work and live.
  • United Way- Every summer, Insight teammates hold raffles, stage fun interactive events like decorating bags which hold books on technology for children of all ages. We contribute goods as well as monetary donations which support food drives, housing, and learning initiatives for the Valley of the Sun United Way.
  • Arizona Diamondbacks Science of Baseball: Tomorrows’ innovations begins in today’s classrooms. This program shows teachers and students how to use baseball to make Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) lessons come alive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Insight in May 2014.

    Interview

    I was connected with a recruiter about a week later after I applied online and was scheduled to interview the following week with a few of the team members. The recruiter called me a couple of days after I applied and asked questions about myself and my experience. I initially applied for another position but was recommended this by the recruiter, based off of my work and school experience. The interview was delayed about 30 minutes due to the lack of communication between the recruiter and the hiring manager (I believe the recruiter was out of town and didn't tell the hiring manager I'd be in for an interview at the specific time I was scheduled?) although I checked-in with the front desk. So, I was in the waiting room for a while and I knew the hiring manager from the beginning was irritated, which I am sure set the tone for the entire interview. The interview itself was okay, I was asked a series of typical questions relating to various work scenarios.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle or respond to stress in the work environment, given the responsibilities of this position? Are you able to maintain multiple projects with strict deadlines? Provide an example from your previous/current position.   2 Answers
