I applied through other source - interviewed at Allstate in August 2012.
Interview Details – I was first e-mailed to set up phone interview, after that online assessment, then face to face interview. I was interviewed by team leader and then her manager. Team leader asked me these situational questions for an hour. Her manager was brief, about 15 minutes.
Interview Question – None of the questions in face to face were difficult. They were all situational. Don't know what they were looking for. Answer Question

Interview Details – Funny that for a Network Engineer position, the recruiter never once asked me any relevant questions regarding actual Network skills or experience. Just about every question was about working in primarily a Windows or Unix environment and what experience I had with those. Sorry, but when you post a job asking for skills such as LAN switching, WAN routers, routing protocols, QoS and Spanning Tree, I dont see how asking for my skill level with Windows Server or LINUX is more important that asking about skill levels with IOS or Nexus Platforms.
Interview Question – Continually asking about server OS experience. If you want a Server Admin, post the job properly. Answer Question

Interview Details – Allstate recruits heavily at some colleges for their leadership development program. First step is a short interview using BDA style.

They are looking for people with lots of recent work/internship experience, so don't bother applying if you have neither.
