I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Allstate in September 2014.
Recruiter called and emailed me looking to set up an in person interview. I responded and within a week I was interviewing at the headquarters in Northbrook. Interview was around an hour long and consisted mainly of behavioral questions, which were not that hard to answer. Interview seemed to go fairly well and was told I would hear back in 2 weeks at the latest. Three weeks later I sent the hiring manager and follow up to see if there was any update to which I received a reply from the recruiter saying I was still under consideration and applologizing for the delay. After that I heard nothing for about three more weeks until I received a generic you are no longer under consideration email. Not sure what took so long for them to just tell me that.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks – interviewed at Allstate (Hudson, OH) in March 2014.
One phone interview with an HR person and one interview with the future manager. I then received an email from the HR person telling me that I got the job and this was my starting salary. Pretty straight forward, as expected as I was referred by an employee. Both the HR and the manager interviews were relaxed and the standard questions for an Analyst job are being asked so hae no fear when going for Allstate, there are no tricks in their employment process.

They basically give you a phone call if your application gets past HR and if the interview goes well I assume they give you an offer.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Allstate (Atlanta, GA) in January 2012.
Initially contacted by a recruiter after my online application. He asked basic questions such as salary expectations, why Allstate, and why I was interested in the position. Next was an on site interview with the hiring manager, who was very nice and thorough with the interview. They asked very specific questions about my past professional experience and explained the position in more detail. During this time, I again reiterated my expectations of salary. Building was nice, people seem friendly. Hours appear to be standard although they limit lunches to 30 minutes. Office located just north of 285 off 75 and Windy Hill. Overall the HR rep was very nice and informative, as well as the hiring manager.
- Why Allstate? Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Their offer was considerably below market and my own expectations. They counter offered but it was still very low.

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Allstate (Topeka, KS) in September 2010.
I applied online and a recruiter contacted me the same week. I had interviewed previously and been turned down for a different job by the same recruiter. This showed that if you get rejected once, you can still keep applying and don't automatically rule you out. The interview first consisted of general yes or no questions, like if you are okay with doing a background check if necessary, or if you require a work visa. Then they move on to easy personal questions and also ask what interests you about the job.
