I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at IHS.
Interview Details – I applied for this job twice - once via the website and the second time through a referral. Of course, I got a call back once I was referred. I started off with an HR interview, then interview with the hiring director. After that, I came in for a full day of interviews plus a job talk. Everything went well, so I thought. They liked my job talk, my experience, my academic pedigree... nothing prepared me for the bait and switch of their offering me a LOWER position than the one advertised! It was insulting, to say the least. I learned, though, that I'm no the only one that this has happened to. When I spoke with friends it turned out that in my circle I know two other people who have interviewed with IHS and gotten the bait and switch offer, with the explanation that they just weren't qualified for the position they interviewed for. I turned it down, I don't think I could work in such a bullying, toxic environment.

Interview Question – Why IHs? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at IHS.
Interview Details – Was recruited to the company by a headhunter. Process was very professional from first interviews through on-boarding. After providing my resume and cover letter with career background, conducted interviews with headhunter, who then set up interview with hiring manager by phone. After the phone interview I was invited to Englewood for in-person interviews with the hiring manager, and other senior business line leaders.
Interview Question – There wasn't a difficult or unexpected question. Maybe it's because I've interviewed for other positions before, but I did not experience anything that surprised or concerned me. The interviews with senior leadership other than the hiring manager were a bit unexpected, but it was more about determining if I was a fit with the company culture and work responsibilities.

Interview Question – Why IHS? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at IHS.
Interview Details – I was contacted through LinkedIn by an IHS recruiter. She was very active in the beginning and did an initial screening. After I had an interview with the hiring manager, I was told that I would be moving to the next round and that I would be kept in the loop. The following week, I sent a follow-up email to check on the timeline (because I was being interviewed by another company who wanted to make me an offer). I did not hear back from her and sent a follow up email the following week, still no response from her nor the hiring manager. It seemed like they had many requests and hoops for me to jump through in the beginning of the process, but after they decided not to move forward, they could not be bothered with a simple rejection email.
