Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Allstate in August 2014.

Interview

Pretty long process but thankfully both HR and managers did a great job working together. I applied online and a month later got an email inviting me to fill out a screening questionnaire. A week later I had a phone interview with a manager who happened to be very nice and who answered all my questions. A couple days later the same HR representative invited me to an in person interview with two managers. This was a more rigorous interview but consisted mostly of behavioral questions. Not easy questions, but mostly behavioral. Following this interview, about a week later, I had a final phone with another manager.

Interview Questions

  • Mostly behavioral questions. The screening questionnaire has some of the more technical questions.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Allstate (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Applied through the University and heard back via email about two weeks later. Completed a pre interview screening process via email, and then asked to come to a in person interview. Standard behavioral questions, and intense questions about resume and past experiences. Be prepared to answer how you are dedicated for the insurance sector, and Allstate as a firm. Stiff competition, many university and experience professionals apply

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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Allstate (Northbrook, IL) in February 2013.

    Interview

    The interview took about 3 weeks and there were 2 phone screening and one on-site interview. The phone interviewers gave a great impression of the company, but the interviewers on-site were terrible. They were highly disrespectful, rude, arrogant, and clearly gave the impression, from the very beginning, that they had no interest in interviewing me, let alone offering me a job. It was a complete waste of time and energy. If they had no intention of hiring me, they should've just not asked me to come to their office.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a question to predict something based on past statistics. The statistics were very limited, and even though there couldn't be a right answer (they said so themselves), they force you to give an answer - and then give you reasons for why it's wrong (there's not enough data).   Answer Question
