    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at The Standard.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview first then panel interview. Behavior type questions - sometimes can be a panel of people (4). Wasn't very difficult but it was stressful like all interviews are. Skills like working with excel spreadsheet is an advantage with this company. Be prepared to show that you can data mine also.

    Rating Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Phone interview then a panel interview with two hiring managers. Managers were friendly but stuck to the boiler plate questions. Not very original or personable. When they offer the position they state that they have no room to negotiate earnings, but if you have any hope of maintaining an industry standard wage, you will need to negotiate up front, because you will not get it afterwards.

    Q/A Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Portland, OR
    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Standard.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview, and was contacted the same day to come in for a final-round interview about 1.5 weeks later. The phone interview was mostly behavioral, with some questions about my technical skills in excel and with general data analysis. The interview in person was actually even more behavioral than I expected, it was really about determining compatibility with the team. I met with two team members, then had a one on one interview, then a final interview with the team leader. The interview process was very straightforward, and everyone was very kind and professional. I declined the offer solely because I received another offer that was better suited for my long-term career goals.

    The process took a day - interviewed at The Standard in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I worked for the Standard as a student consultant and then an intern. At the end of my internship, I interviewed for the current role that I occupy. The interview was about 10 questions, all behavioral based. You can get entire lists of commons BI questions on the internet, use this and follow the STAR format in responding to questions and you'll be fine.

    I interviewed through an employee referral - interviewed at The Standard.

    Interview Details

    Telephone screen by HR followed by an interview with 2 people, one who will be the hiring manager. Interviews take about an hour and include behavioral based questions. For the analyst position, depending on the talent pool, it is helpful to have prior claims experience. If not, a skill set that matches the position is helpful. Multiple attorneys have been hired into the position as a result of the need to understand the constantly changing landscape of claims and litigation.
