    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at IHI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid benefits and annual bonus. Growing business, climate controlled, easy labor.

    Cons

    Unorganized, lack of communication, poorlyrics managed, little or no chance of advancement, annual raise is lass than cost of living. Did I mention Unorganized?

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate those who are doing the job and know what they are doing. Treat production employees as more than a number. Implement a system and either stick with it or continually improve it, not change it on a weekly/monthly basis.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IHI (Houston, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process if very structured. It is driven by the HR team. They organize the review team and give the starting interview. You seem to interview with at least three people: an HR person, a person on the team where you might work, and the hiring manager. Each person will ask you predefined behavioral interview questions. Be ready with your STAR (look it up on google) answers.

    Interview Questions

    • The HR representative asked the age old, "Tell me about one time when you made a mistake or didn't deliver." It's a bogus question that everyone should be prepared for and have a canned answer to. It can't be something too bad and you better have had the best fix in the world for it.   Answer Question
