    Interview Details

    Interviewed and Hired over the phone with multiple people through out the country. Some of the interviews were groups of leaders that were wanting to see if I had what they needed. It was interesting in that I could not see them or facial reactions and had to go by tone of voice. Once I accepted it then took awhile to get all the paper work completed for the company the use called "Right Hire" - I was on vacation trying to complete everything they wanted. Did accomplish getting it done and hired while I was on vacation.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at WellPoint.

    Interview Details

    The first contact was by the recruiter stating my resume was forwarded to the hiring manager. The hiring manager contacted me fairly quickly a few days later to set up a formal interview. I arrived at the location on time and had to check in at the security desk. The interview process went well with only the hiring manager and lasted about 1 hour. The manager was very nice and pleasant. The questions were very straightforward with no surprises. Overall, the experience more than met my expectations.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were Project related questions. Tell me about a project you were working on with a difficult experience and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Consumer Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at WellPoint in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had originally applied for a lower-paying customer service role in Colorado. After you apply, you receive an email for a computer assessment. (within 2-3 days after applying) I passed the assessment and received an email to setup a phone interview with a recruiter. If you pass that, you receive an email if you'll be contacted. I was contacted by the hiring manager. During my interview with her, she recommended a position in Indianapolis that also paid 7 dollars more per hour. I had to do an assessment, and after completing the assessment I was pretty much guaranteed the job. I start on August 18th!

    Intern II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed at WellPoint in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    1 phone interview and 3 in-office interviews with Vice Presidents, Directors, and Managers from HR and Commercial Business. Interviews were very relaxed and conversational. Most questions were regarding my motivations to apply for the role and experiences on my resume. BE SURE TO RESEARCH & MEMORIZE ALL YOU CAN ABOUT THE COMPANY. Showing that you did your research will set you apart moreso with this company than if you were to do the same for other companies.

    Interview Questions
    • The only "difficult" questions were the situational questions which you would hear from any other company. Nothing exceptionally difficult here, at least in my experience.   View Answer

    Individual Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chantilly, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Chantilly, VA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at WellPoint in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was fast; two phone interviews and a face to face. Extremely long phone interviews. 45 minutes or longer. Director was arrogant and pushy in his demeanor on the phone and in person. I was expecting the friendly Blue Cross Blue Shield approach, but that was not what I got. It was more of a churn and burn process.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    Commission and salary were extremely vague. This company has a very high layoff rate.
