Interview Details – First touch was a campus career fair. After meeting and speaking with interviewer was selected for an on campus interview. On campus interview was mostly to learn more about self. take me through resume, why allstate, etc. There was nothing too challenging about this first interview and felt i connected with the interviewer pretty well but was not selected to continue. Next round would have been at headquarters.

Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
Atlanta, GA

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Allstate in August 2011.

Interview Details – I applied through the Allstate website. I first received a phone call from the human resources department, headquartered in IL, about one business day after submitting my application. Instead of a phone call arranging a formal phone screening, they asked if I had time to do it right away. I went ahead with it and wasn't really prepared to answer questions such as "Name one situation where you worked in a group, and describe your experience" or "Name an obstacle at work or school you had to work through." Etc. Especially since I was driving home at the time. I thought I bombed it but turns out they emailed me 2 days later and schedule an in-person interview at their atlanta office. It was with two people from their finance department. One appeared to like me. The other seemed very hesitant of my abilities. They asked me situational questions as well as insurance-related questions. For instance, "how would discontinuing insurance policy renewals for homeowners affect the company." At the end, they asked me to prepare a presentation for them. They said there would be a second round of interviews if I made it through.

Took about a week to get an email about how I didn't get a job.

Interview Question – If allstate were to cancel all insurance policy renewals in areas with hurricanes, how would this affect the company?   View Answer

Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
Northbrook, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Allstate in March 2011.

Interview Details – After sending in my resume I received a call from someone representing Allstate. They confirmed my information on my resume and asked some questions I was not expecting since it was the first time I had actually communicated with them. The next week I was brought in and interviewed with three people separately, The first just wanted to get to know you and see how you would fit into the company. The following two were more concerned about your skill set and how that would help the company. Be prepared for behavioral questions.

Interview Question – Tell me something that's not on your resume that you would like to us to know.   Answer Question

The process took a day - interviewed at Allstate in May 2011.

Interview Details – Allstate asked me, " When were you part of a team, and how did you benefit from your team members in a way that the team was better off than if you had worked by yourself?"
Also, they asked if they could do a background check, if I was a veteran, what salary I was looking for. I said around $40,000 per year, and they said this corresponded to what they were looking for.
