    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Iron Mountain Inc (Bangalore) in December 2010.

    Interview

    There were 3 rounds.1 telephonic..1 technical f2f and then again one more technical f2f.first two were conducted by a well behaved person.But the 3rd round was conducted by a very arrongant and harsh person who has a limited set of knowledge about the subject and was very adamant in accepting the facts.He considers support people to be superior over application developers and was showing attitude.Decided to reject the offer to work under such kind of person and because the role was 100 percent voice based database support and not development.

    Interview Questions

    • Not even a single standard question was asked.Everything seems like taken out from google.Basic definitions and some support issues faced were asked.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Iron Mountain Inc.

    Interview

    I was hired on through Randstad, an employment agency. I went through two interviews, one with the Temp-to-Hire agency, and then again with Iron Mountain. Standard "S.T.A.R." type interview with Iron Mountain.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were particularly difficult, except for the usual "Tell me about any weaknesses you may have," or "What do you consider your poorest trait," type of thing. The interview was crisp, cool, and professional.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. They offered US$12.50/hr, and that was that. Raises came in increments of one to three percent, and only once per year. The only way to make significantly more is to move up from the call center floor.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Iron Mountain Inc.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then an interview with the team I'd be working with, then an interview with the HR Dept. As long as you prepare, it's not too difficult. Everyone was really nice until I made it to HR. The person who interviewed me at that time was very stand-offish and cold.

    Negotiation

    You should negotiate but I was desperate so I didn't. The annual raises are very small.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Iron Mountain Inc.

    Interview

    The background checks done on new hires are very extensive. They asked for copies of my W-2's from quite a few years back. I'm not sure what the purpose of that was. But otherwise the interview process was great. It seems as though they have the supervisors on the department you would be working in conducting the interviews which is a nice change from dealing with someone directly from HR.

    Interview Questions

    • If I brought 10 of your friends and past/current co-workers into the room with us now and asked each of them what you could work, what would be a common theme among them? I found this to be an excellent way to phrase the typical, "What are your weaknesses?"   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Iron Mountain Inc in September 2014.

    Interview

    The person who contacted me first by phone was very excited about my background and qualifications and wanted me to phone interview with one of their vice presidents. That went well, but their professionalism went downhill from there. I was told twice via e-mail that I would be contacted to discuss moving forward in the interviewing process, then nothing. The interviewer just dropped off the face of the earth.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview questions were pretty standard and very specific to the role. There were no surprise or trick questions.   Answer Question

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Iron Mountain Inc.

    Interview

    The process can be slightly tedious. You have to list a lot of information and they do a thorough background check, due to the fact your are constantly around confidential information. You go through an interview with to people usually on the same day. Then if you get hired you are offered and acceptance letter and start right away. The acceptance process because of the background check can take a few weeks.
