    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at IHS in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Process was fast enough. One phone interview, then two in-person interviews. The drug screen process was frustrating. They use a large organization that has clinics here. Very busy – and not enough help. They misplaced my first test, and by the time they found it, it was too old. Had to retake. The drug screen process took 29 days – that was longer than the hiring process

    Interview Questions
    • During the second interview – one of the interviewees said: Our goal here is to show you why IHS is so great to work for. I loved hearing that – nearly caught me off guard. Who expects someone to say that in an interview. But it's a very professional way of asking the same question -- what do you know about our company? Have you done your homework? That was my cue to tell them why I wanted the job.   Answer Question
