    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.

    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.
