Claims Service Representative Interview

Claims Service Representative
Birmingham, AL

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

NOC Network Engineer Interview

NOC Network Engineer

Interviewed at Allstate

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

Leadership Development Program Interview

Leadership Development Program

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Allstate.

Interview Details – Allstate recruits heavily at some colleges for their leadership development program. First step is a short interview using BDA style. You should have several examples of real-world experience that you can apply to a number of different questions fresh in your head before heading into the interview. They are looking for people with lots of recent work/internship experience, so don't bother applying if you have neither.

Interview Question – Name a time when a group you were a part of was not functioning properly - how did you respond?   Answer Question
