    Entry Level Inside Liability Determinate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Allstate.

    Interview Details

    Hey everyone,
    The interview process is as followed:
    1. Applied online
    2. Selected by recruiter and asked to complete a phone interview (it is a recording where you record your answer - asked current position questions, current compensation and why Allstate with "Name a time" scenario questions) It is rather short maybe 5 or 6 questions.
    3. Upon being selected by hiring after your recorded statement, you are given a link to pass a behavioral analysis style questionnaire - SO SUPER EASY DO NOT SWEAT IT JOB SEEKERS
    4. I was then selected to come in for the face to face interview with team lead (it is who team you will be on so shine bright like a diamond - in my Rihana voice) They only ask name a time questions...like name a time you had to deal with a difficult customer, name a time when you gave wrong information etc.
    5. You will be asked to come back and meet with team lead boss and call listen with a current employee.

    **Shout out to Allstate because it was honestly the most welcoming interview process I have ever experienced and they were friendly and not the type to look down at people**

    6. After that if selected a recruiter will call and extend a job offer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Allstate.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for the position. Heard back from HR requesting a 30 minute phone interview with the recruiting department about a week after applying. After the phone interview I heard back within a week requesting a second phone interview with a manager more relevant to the position. After that interview I heard back within a week requesting an in person interview. The in person interview lasted from 8 am till noon. There were three 45 minute interviews with managers from different business sections followed by lunch provided in the Allstate campus cafeteria with two recent hires in the position I applied for who were able to give a better idea of what the position was like for a young employee. Everyone was very friendly and the HR point of contact was responsive and helpful in answering questions and ensuring all plans for interviews were good to go.

    Interview Questions
    • You work for a professor who wants to forecast how many students he will have in class each month so he knows how many tests to print out. You are given the class attendance for two years by month (10 months per year for two years, so 20 data points) and asked how you would approach forecasting attendance for next year. There is a major discrepancy between one month in the two years which after you give your initial answer you are told is from a flu outbreak in that month.   Answer Question

    Liability Claims Adjuster Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Allstate in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview first. It was fairly easy. It has the same objective as the questions in the 'in-person' interview. If then approved, personality test. The personality test is done online. It is time consuming, but not difficult. Followed by in person interview. This for me was hard, I don't do well talking to people that have to pick my brain in 30 minutes or less. However, it was relaxed and I even enjoyed some laughs.

    Project Manager (Entry Level) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Northbrook, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Northbrook, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Allstate in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    First Round: automated telephone interview. This was VERY awkward: essentially, a robot calls you and asks you standardized questions (strengths, weaknesses, what you think/like about project management etc), and allots you time to answer them. This would have been fine with a human, but for some reason I was fumbling all over myself with the 'bot. To the point where I was SURE I would not get a call back.

    Second Round: In-Person/On-Site. I met with the two hiring managers for my department. They were very friendly and obviously very dedicated/enthusiastic about their work and the company (you laugh, but I've had interviews with the complete opposite). The interview structure was as follows:

    - introduction of both managers, a quick get to know each other
    - rundown of my resume, first a summary by me and then pointed questions by them
    - structured/standardized questions provided by the company
    - additional questions thought up by the individual managers
    - time allotted for my questions

    This position was entry level, and the second round was the final round.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process what quick and to the point. I applied online and got a call from the recruiter. I went to the interview where they gave me a quick one in one and then went to take an assessment on the computer in a quiet room. After passing the assessment, I had another interview with an interviewer, then they had me wait. Another woman came and got me from the waiting room where they asked me questions about my eligibility to work in the US. I was then offered the position. My interviewers were friendly and informative.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Allstate in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I Submitted my resume online and was contacted for a phone interview within a week. The phone interview only lasted about 15 minutes and was very easy. They explained the position and asked me about my resume. The next step was to complete an assessment that took around 30 minutes. The next week I went in for an interview that lasted about 45 minutes. The interview was easy. They explained the position again and asked me about my resume. Then they asked six to ten behavior questions that were pretty easy to answer. The interview was very laid back and enjoyable as far as interviews go.

    Interview Details

    Very difficult process. Had to constantly call the recruiter to see if things were progressing. The recruiter would ask me to call her every week because she was going to forget to follow up if I didn't remind her. Very unprofessional. I asked clarifying questions regarding benefits and never got answers from her.
