Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
Chicago, IL

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Blue Cross in April 2014.

Interview Details – Although BCBSA has a "strategic recruiting" framework, the interview process does not seem to impact the decision very much. Most people get hired because they are the right place and right time but most importantly - they know the right person.

IT Support Interview

Interview Details – It was very cookie cutter, they contract all their recruiting for technical roles, so it's all questions you have heard before. Office was nice, multiple interviewers, felt intimidating at first... But literally just a same old interview.

Interview Question – What is your most unrealistic lifetime goal.   Answer Question

Claims Examiner Interview

Claims Examiner

Interviewed at Blue Cross

Interview Details – Two interviews. One with HR. She seemed very uninterested and drilled me with robotic questions. She was older (I was way younger) and appeared to be judgemental and it really seemed to bother her that I was leaving my previous employment in pursuit of a new one. But because I passed all of the pretests with flying colors, she had no choice but to pass my resume on to the hiring manager. The second interview was with the hiring manager. She was extremely friendly and had an awesome personality.

Interview Question – Why would you want to leave where you're at now? It seems like an ok job.   View Answer

Associate Consultant Interview

Associate Consultant

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Blue Cross.

Interview Details – An on campus recruiter lead the first interview round. He asked general behavioral and background questions. He did most of the talking, explaining seemingly insignificant things about the company. When I talked it didn't seem like he was trying to listen or build a conversation. Overall, this interview turned me off and I rescinded my application.

Interview Question – How do you go about researching? How would you present your findings to a group?   Answer Question
