Applications Developer Analyst Interview

Applications Developer Analyst
Richardson, TX

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Blue Cross (TX).

Interview Details – I had applied for the Fresh Graduate Java Developer Position.
The hiring process consisted of three steps:
1) Telephonic interview with medium level java/sql/spring/hibernate questions. About 10-15 questions.

2) After 3 days, I was called for a face to face interview which consisted of more behavioral and time/project management type questions. Like: If you have 3-4 tasks given to you at a time, how would you prioritize them? What was the last time you had issues at work or co-worker ? What is your strengths and weaknesses ?

HR took more behavioral interviews where they asked general questions like how fast do you get upset ? When was the last time you were upset with your co-workers ? How did you deal with it ? Etc etc.

Interview Question – Couple of hibernate/spring related questions were little difficult given the fact that I had never used so much depth of skills when working until yet.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. They start fresh graduates in least pay possible. Good luck with bargaining if you are more experienced.

Underwriting Assistant Interview

Underwriting Assistant
Richardson, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Blue Cross (TX) in April 2011.

Interview Details – The University of Texas at Dallas Career Center posted this position back in January. Blue Cross Blue Shield contacted me in March and conducted a preliminary phone interview. This consisted of basic regarding the underwriting position (do I like math? do you prefer working individually or with a group, computer skills, etc.)

 A week later they called back to schedule a face to face interview with the underwriting management team. The campus in Richardson is new and very beautiful. The attire was business casual, though you will see a few of the management team members wearing suits. There is was a gym in the basement and a cafeteria in the main floor which was a nice touch.

The building is highly secured so you will have to take a picture and get an ID badge before the interview. I met with a HR rep and went over the basic benefits package at BCBSTX. They offer many benefits including discounted health insurance, PTO, 401k, and a pension plan to name a few.

 The interviewers were the three members of the underwriting management team and they were casual and laid back. The interview itself consisted of basic behavioral questions(how to deal with a difficult coworker, how you prioritize tasks) and even a few mental math questions (what is 21% of 1.8 million and how did you come up with it?). My advice would be to brush up on some math and answer the behavioral question showing that you can make decisions independently but are able to follow directions carefully.

Interview Question – You are the leader of a group of eleven people. Eight of them are team players but one of them thinks she should be the leader and the other one cannot concentrate. How do you deal with them both?   Answer Question
