    Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Northbrook, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Northbrook, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 9 months - interviewed at Allstate in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    First I had an on-campus interview at my university with two individuals.

    Months later the one-day interview involved:

    Breakfast with an individual
    A half hour "introduction" with another individual - basically a short interview
    Giving a 10-minute presentation to 5-6 people, with questions afterward
    2 1-hour interviews with 2 different people
    1-hour lunch with two people
    1 last 1-hour interview with one more person

    Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Northbrook, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Northbrook, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Allstate in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed internally for an actuarial analyst position. HR was a positive, professional experience. Actuaries with whom I interviewed with were successful actuaries with normal-people personality skills. Nothing but professionalism in the interview on both sides. Easy to build rapport with analysts. Preparation was intense, and there were five interviewers (including during lunch with two prospective peers). A very rigorous experience. I would recommend people who can get into Pricing to work there.

    Claims Service Adjuster Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the recruiter and was asked standard fair structured interview behavioral questions regarding previous customer service interactions. I was then told to go take a test online, and they let me know that I passed immediately. I was scheduled for an in-person interview three weeks later. I took that time to prepare like crazy.

         Glassdoor is an excellent resource to use when attempting the grueling Allstate interview process; it is indeed necessary to absorb all of the interview material here to help with the hiring process for candidates. The interview was a good cop/bad cop, stress interview. The first interview was pleasant, and I got along with the interviewer very well. The second interview had the interviewer acting like a demanding customer who was kind of slow to understand what I was saying, and he would at times put words in my mouth, which I had to correct. I could not take notes concerning his questions during the interview, and they were pretty involved.

          It was the toughest interview of my professional life, and when I was escorted back to the entrance of the office, I thought that there was no way I was going to get a job offer, yet lo and behold, two weeks later I was offered the position. I happily accepted it.

    IT Graduate Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Allstate.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was quite lengthy and did take a relative amount if time. First of all it was though submitting a CV took quite a while for a response but then an interview was arranged this was both scenario based and technical questions (they will grill you a bit technically wise) then received an email due to such a high volume of candidates and was invited to fill out an additional application.

    Inside Total Loss Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Charlotte, NC
    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Allstate in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    It takes a LONG time beginning to end. First you are dealing with a recruiter out of your area generally and then eventually you have an interview where the job is actually located. It took over 2 weeks to get a response regarding the results and it was all done online. There was no real option to follow up with those you interviewed with. The most troubling aspect of the process for me was the actual job they were hiring for, did NOT match the job description that was advertised and discussed with the recruiter. I didn't know this until I had the face to face interview and the hiring manager started off by saying, "... you will be in front of the computer and on the phone all day long..." The job description posted on Indeed.com said quite the opposite. I was not qualified, nor interested, in the actual position they were looking for! The process wasted a great deal of my time.

    I submitted an online application in late October, and heard back from Allstate in early December. There was first a phone interview in December, after which some candidates were eliminated. There was then an on-site interview in January, where I had interviews with two Fellows.
