    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IHS (Houston, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Two telephonic rounds followed by an in-person interview at IHS Houston. Interviewed for 4 hours by 5 different people. Each had their own method of testing the candidate. First telephonic round would be very easy judging basics of programming. Second round goes deeper into object oriented programming concepts. Third round you are grilled in person by 5 different people. They know what they are doing and are very good at it. If you get hired, you really deserve it. Very professional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IHS (Englewood, CO).

    Interview

    In total took 3 weeks. Very informal - recruiting manager in another country. So therefore quite a few phone calls. One in person interview with a panel but not that difficult as no presentation was necessary. They were looking for the right person not necessarily background I destroy experience. Small team so wanted a personality that would fit in. I do not believe this is standard at IHS. I was lucky to be interviewed for a position supporting a team that had worked together for many years and were newly acquired by IHS. They wanted the right fit.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at IHS (Houston, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I talked to about four or five people, from members of the team to management level people. They were all very friendly and welcoming, and I felt very comfortable with them. I was interviewed at the office and was shown where I would prospectively work, and was asked questions that very clearly reflected the work I would be asked to do.

    If you have an opportunity to interview at this location for this job, do not hesitate, it was a very enjoyable experience.

    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IHS (Houston, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    3 rounds of interviews. HR emailed 2 weeks after applying and quickly set up calls with the hiring manager to screen applicants. Met in person with director to provide feedback. Final round was with the hiring manager in person and met with other analysts on the team. Went through past experiences and asked some technical questions. There was a basic excel test to complete to check competency. Waited for feedback (yes or no) from HR or hiring manager given I reached the final round. Emailed and rang but no response. Very unprofessional to treat a candidate reaching final round with no decency or a courtesy rejection. Also, like other reviews, the position was changed to a junior position. The bait and switch seems to be quite common. Expected much better.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at IHS (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Applied online and was calling in for an interview 1 - 2 weeks later. Had one on one interviews with the hiring manager as well as one of the team members. Interview was fairly simple with regular questions about strengths/weaknesses, it was more about what the scope of the work was for internship duration and what I was expected to accomplish.

    Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at IHS.

    Interview

    Pre-interview contact was done via email. In-person interviews were conducted with hiring manager, department head, and several department colleagues. All interviews were done in one day over a 3 hour period, which was fine with me. I would have liked to see the office environment during my visit, but was put in a conference room close to the entrance. A separate on-boarding department, not the hiring manager, makes the offer and discusses salary and benefits. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.
