    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IHS (Southfield, MI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview then an in-person interview. I was interviewed by two people. The whole interview process was very laid-back. It was the best interview I ever had. They asked me questions about my SQL experience and what various terminology meant in SQL programming. As well as my team leader skills and what I like to do in my free time.

    Their communication really needs improvement though. I've emailed them a few times and they said they had no feedback to give me yet after a whole month. I received an email recently from another talent manager with IHS. She said she was handed over my case. So, now I'm in contact with her regarding everything. Hopefully, I get an offer.

    Automation Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IHS (Englewood, CO).

    Interview

    Typical, phone interview, in person, then it took some time before the review got back to me. There was not a lot of communication in the down times, and was hard to gauge if they company had lost interest or not.

    Overall the interview process was pretty typical of a publicly traded company as there are multiple layers of management and approvals that are typically involved.

    Research Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IHS.

    Interview

    The first interview is a phone interview. If you move onto the next round, the company brings you in for an excel and writing test. The excel test is fairly basic with Sumifs, ranks, regressions, etc. The writing test for the energy team was a description of market developments based on provided data and market intelligence. An hour was given for each test. If you pass that test, then you are brought in for team interviews which can last from 20 minutes to 1 hour depending on the interviewer.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IHS.

    Interview

    I went through a lengthy interview process, on and off site. I visited the office, met some employees etc. After the interviews the staff didn't even have the decency to respond to my emails letting me know I hadn't been selected. It was very unprofessional and I don't know why a company would choose to treat people in their industry like this.

    • Lots of tedious questions in my original interview followed by an on side interview and tests.   Answer Question
