    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Blue Cross.

    Interview Details

    I had 3 phone interviews (outside recruiter, internal recruiter, hiring manager) then on-site interview with 4 other Directors, one after the other. I came away with the favorable impression that there are some terribly bright people who work for BCBSA. I asked some questions at the end of each interview that I thought might give each Director pause, but they knocked the questions out of the park. Seems like a great place to work.

    It was a nightmare. They only talked to me for 10 min. They didn't even take time to look at my experience. I think they already had their candidate chosen and they were just going thru the motions

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Blue Cross in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through indeed.com and after I sent in my application I received an assessment to do online which I must have passed because a week later I received a phone interview. After talking with the phone interviewer I moved on to the actual in person interview. I arrived prompt at 7 am and was lead back to a room with two ladies whom interviewed me. There were several sections to the process. I came prepared with the usual interview questions like: strengths weakness, about me and other usual questions however I was not prepared for 5 pages of scenario questions. Like tell me about a time when you made a mistake how did you fix it? Tell me what would you do if you had a new supervisor how would you work around them. Tell me about a time you came upon a problem this and that. After all those questions they gave me a paper interview asking me several questions how I would handle a client. After all that they came back into the room and did some role playing. After the role playing exercise they gave me the opportunity to ask some questions. I was not offered a job however when I asked them my questions they were surprised by my questions. So my suggestion would be come prepared to the best of your ability. I asked them why do they like working there? Is there anything i can do in my first 90 days that would ensure my success at bcbs. I also asked them if they had any constructive criticism for me. They do hair test and background tests.

    Interview Details

    Applied online December 2013. Received a phone call from HR February 2014. Subsequently did two phone interviews - one with HR rep and the other with the hiring manager. Following those two phone interviews, had an in-person interview with six different people throughout the organization, meeting with each individually for about 30 minutes. Following the interview, I was told I would have an answer within two weeks. It ended up taking about 4-5 weeks to finally get an answer.
