    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Detroit, MI
    Anonymous Employee in Detroit, MI
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had the opportunity to interview with BCBS. Was a little surprised that they didn't request a phone interview first. Upon arrival, I checked in at the desk and was given a badge. The interviewer came out to greet me. Although there wasn't a conference room available, we pulled up a few chairs near a window and got started. I actually enjoyed this better than a conference room, it felt more comfortable. The interviewer was the manager as well and very personable. Pretty much all of the questions were about past experience (specifically of JAD sessions, BRD and Use Cases). She said the skill she was looking for the most was the ability to work with others so expect a lot of questions in that regard. She spent a lot of time explaining hierarchy and the work environment. Typical "corporate like" structure. Too bad I didn't get the job, she seems like an awesome manager to work for. It was a great interview experience as well. Also, they got back to me within a few days to confirm I didn't get the job so I wasn't left hanging.

    Corporate Strategy Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Detroit, MI
    Anonymous Employee in Detroit, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Case based, I wasn't prepared for it and subsequently performed poorly. Interviewer was lackadaisical, I knew he wasn't going to select me for the position anyway. He came off as somewhat rude and abrasive. It's partly my fault for not finding out earlier that it was to be a case interview.
