My "interview" was performed by Matt LeFebre on November 28, 2008. First of all, he was only one of two people actually in the office that day. The location seemed professional in appearance, but had a conspicuous lack of any reception desk. Instead, when you walk in, you can hear an electronic bell ringing somewhere in the back office, which is locked, and not visible from where you enter. The rep comes out and leads you to a conference room for the "interview", which was very informal, but covered the usual items you might expect; experience, education, and the type of position I was looking for were topics covered in the meeting. All seemed to go well, and Matt promised that I would be one of the priority people on his "list" of candidates that he would be seeking positions for.
Well, about two weeks after the interview, I called back about a couple of positions I saw listed on CareerBuilder for which I am well-qualified. When I asked about one specific position, Matt admits to me that they posted the positions "just to get applicants in the door".
Today, nearly two months after the interview, I called again about another position on CareerBuilder to ask if I could be placed in consideration. Again, Matt outright admits (rather nonchalantly, I might add) that this is not a real position, and that they were trying to get more applicants in the door to build up a pool of applicants for potential positions that may come up in the future.
I work with many recruiters and consulting firms (20+ organizations), most of whom are quite reputable, and yet NOT ONE of them were able to tell me anything about this company or their business practices. They mentioned that they had heard the name before, but they were so new, no one had actually received any feedback about IG.
BE FOREWARNED: If you are seriously looking for an IT job, AVOID INSIGHT GLOBAL AT ALL COSTS.
I would suggest you try Robert Half Technology, Rita Technology Services, Veredus Corporation, TechUSA, Sapphire Technologies, or KForce Professional Services - I have either personally obtained positions through these companies, or know people who have had successful relationships with these companies - they will be your best bets.
Again, to reiterate, DO NOT WASTE YOUR BREATH, TIME, OR GAS ON ANYTHING INVOLVING INSIGHT GLOBAL!!!
