I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at IHS in July 2009.
Interview Details – Initial contact via phone by HR Recruiter.
First interview with hiring manager for 30 minutes via phone. Hiring manager asked lots of general background/skill questions. No time for candidate to ask any questions.
Second interview in person with hiring manager and hiring manager's boss - 1 hour with each of them separately. Conclusion was they were interviewing and would narrow down to 3 candidates for second in-person interviews within 2 weeks.
3 weeks later....HR finally returns follow-up calls made at 1 week and 2 weeks post in-person interview. No input yet from hiring manager; they are still interviewing and should have final three candidates identified within a week. 1.5 weeks later....no communication. Followup voicemail left by candidate-no response.
Perceptions - have heard from current employees that the hiring process is very slow. Took a year from first contact for a developer to get hired with an employee referral and excellent credentials!
Director level has very small office. First line manager level and below have cubicles. Entrance to building is secure and requires badge or visitor sign-in. Company has had lots of mergers and acquisitions; integration of these different companies results in disjointed culture.
