    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paris (France)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 11+ months. I interviewed at IHS Markit (Paris (France)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Act 1 : I was contacted by HR on a professional website who shared with me an open position and asked for my CV and a short call. Afer sharing my CV, no answer.
    I then found the position on IHS Markit website and applied. No answer.
    Act 2 : After 6 months I was again contacted by a different HR for the same position (they should probably check first people who had already applied for the positon :) ). After sending my CV again, we set a time slot for a short call with HR. No call from IHS Markit on the day of the interview. They called me the day after, they just messed up with time, but approved the next round.
    Act 3 : Interview with two operational managers by Skype. Good and interesting interview, good discussion. They were sorry for act 1 and insured me that they will contact me back (you wish).
    They also asked me to do a short excel test after the interview, which I did the following week.

    After 3 months still no feedback or answer.

    Life Sciences analyste stagiare Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IHS Markit (London, England (UK)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Vu que je postulais pour un stage, l'entretien s'est seulement produit avec le directeur du département Life Sciences. Il m'a demande pourquoi je voulais faire un stage chez eux, ce que je voulais apprendre et gagner pendant ce stage, ce que j'ai fait avant (postes professionnels, études) et quand je terminai mon doctorat (que j'ai fais en parallèle de ce stage de trois mois).

    Analyste de recherche Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paris (France)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    (Translated from English)

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IHS Markit (Paris (France)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Le procédé d'entretien consistait en un aperçu de 15 minutes de la compagnie et du département pour lequel j'avais postulé et ensuite le reste du temps ils ont épluché mon CV point par point. On m'a en gros demandé d'expliquer (défendre) chaque choix de travail. Je n'étais également pas conscient que les intervieweurs n'essaient plus de connaître le postulant avant de passer aux choses sérieuses. Ça a rendu presque immédiatement évident le fait que je ne m'adapterais pas bien à l'entreprise — car être avec mes collègues et avoir de bonnes relations de travail est très important pour moi.

    Interview Questions

    • Je n'avais pas prévu que le fait de posséder un master de recherche ne m'aiderait pas du tout au cours de cet entretien, ainsi que le fait d'avoir vécu à l'étranger serait considéré comme un changement de carrière. Mon entretien a été négatif partiellemen   Answer Question

    OTC Derivatives Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Ghosted by the hiring manager. I followed up twice after the initial interview, which was an 1-hour video interview. I never got any response. Considering it was a 1-hr video interview with the hiring manager himself, they should have had the basic courtesy to at least give a reply, regardless of the result, as a sign of professionalism and respect, not to mention that I had emailed the person twice. Would it kill you to have some basic human decency? But I guess I should have known better when the person interviewing me showed lack of interest and a languid face during the interview. Well, I guess the job and the team must not be that exciting.

    Client Support Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at IHS Markit (Dallas, TX (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Let me start by saying the company they are using to recruit, " Python Talent" has very personable recruiters. The whole experience seems like it was going well and they appear invested in the applicants success.
    - Initial phone screen to review the position
    - Follow up call to set you up for success prior to hiring manager interview.
    - Advised of next steps and follow up post interview.

    However, after you interview with the hiring manager. They ghost you! I sent multiple emails asking to touch base to review feedback from the interview. Nothing.

    I will not refer talent to this organization based off this experience. I will share my experience and their lack of follow up or their commitment to the interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IHS Markit (Dallas, TX (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Three rounds of interview. After have a short phone call from HR, there were three rounds of interviews. 1st round -> general discussion about the position and technology stack. 2nd round -> technical questions on programming, SQL, debugging, shell scripting, debugging. 3 round -> it was with the team manager and general discussion about the technical stacks, previous experiences, about a project I completed, when I can start, graduation date etc.
    I never heard the final decision from HR. I did a couple of follow up, where I was told that HR did not hear the response from the Hiring Manager. It's been a month so it is obvious I did not get selected. It would be nice if they could just email a rejection letter. After all, I gave hours of my time in the process.

    Legal Counsel Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IHS Markit.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me briefly after submitting my resume to the job posting. I had a 15 minute call with the recruiter and within one day, I had an interview scheduled with two members of the team. Had a one hour virtual interview with two members of the team and was contacted one week later to move on to the second round with another team member. Completed one hour interview with another team member and then never heard from the the recruiter again. I emailed the recruiter asking for an update and never received a response to my email. It is highly unprofessional for a recruiter to just "ghost" candidates who have taken time out of their days to sit through interviews. The interviewers were very pleasant and seemed to be very nice, but the interview process was unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IHS Markit.

    Interview

    COVID times - all interviews by phone.
    I talked to the recruiter first, followed by 4 calls with people from the team. They all gave me a glimpse of the job and left time for questions.
    All interviews were scheduled for 30 minutes but pretty much each one lasted an hour.
    I thought it went well, but after the last interview they went silent.
    I had to reach out to the recruiter several times, and he said they were still interviewing. I saw the job get re-posted at this time. They told me a few days later that I didn't get it - surprise.
