    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at IMS Health (Baltimore, MD) in June 2015.

    Interview

    first round just ask simple quick questions about your degree, availability and status.
    Told me gonna contact me 3-4 weeks later. Then got email says position is filled.
    I may be just too relaxed when i was told it is just background check. Should focus more.
    Or maybe they just filled their position as they said.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at IMS Health (Milwaukee, WI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    1 hour panel of 3 format (average) followed by 1 hour math/excel/composing an email test (fairly difficult) -- The whole process took about a month from the time I applied online. Office seemed friendly, modern setting, super small cubicles, was never told how much the position paid by any of the reps I dealt with along the way. I thought I did a good job at the interview but received a rejection email about 10 days afterwards.

    Director of Software Development Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at IMS Health (Seattle, WA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with a senior recruiter / HR representative - 30-45 minutes. This was generally going over my resume and items of interest that were applicable to the role I was applying for.

    Second phone screen with a senior technical leader who would have been a peer - 30 minutes as there was a scheduling hard stop. This dug a little deeper and pushed to find the depth of the skills listed on my resume.

    In-person interview with 3 individuals on site in their Seattle office. Nice space, seemed like great people.

    Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at IMS Health.

    Interview

    Very hurried process. I had an interview every week for 4 weeks straight - starting with a questionnaire, three phone interviews, and then 3 in person interviews with a presentation. I would get notice for an interview 1-2 days before. During the phone interviews, the interviewers were rude and it is really obvious that they believe that they are better than you. They will focus on certain topics (data manipulation/analytics) and ask you 5-6 questions per interview on those alone. Every interviewer asked me the same thing, which shows how disorganized they are/how they must not communicate with one another.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked three different case questions throughout the process. Two mini cases then one case with a presentation - case was about 5 pages long.   Answer Question

    Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at IMS Health.

    Interview

    I found the interview process to be disorganized. I had four phone/video interviews prior to the "next phase," which is when I would have an in-person interview. Either the interviewers do not share information or they are very inefficient because I have had to share the same information on a loop. At this point, I would not be interested in even going in for the in-person interviews since what I have experienced thus far has been absurd. Not only that, but the main phone interview I had was downright painful. I have never had to go into so much detail about my previous positions as I did with this organization. I felt like the interviewer was getting mad at me, intimidating me, and practically yelled at me for attempting to explain myself. Perhaps this is the nature of the organization, but this has been a good way to learn I am not interested in being an employee here.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at IMS Health in June 2014.

    The first round was a recorded video interview. It was really basic. Just asking your strenghts, your experiences, willingness to travel, things like that. I thought I screwed up badly but I advanced to the next round. The next round was the phone interview and included a case study question. I thought I did okay but I did not get the offer.
