    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Allstate in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter called and emailed me looking to set up an in person interview. I responded and within a week I was interviewing at the headquarters in Northbrook. Interview was around an hour long and consisted mainly of behavioral questions, which were not that hard to answer. Interview seemed to go fairly well and was told I would hear back in 2 weeks at the latest. Three weeks later I sent the hiring manager and follow up to see if there was any update to which I received a reply from the recruiter saying I was still under consideration and applologizing for the delay. After that I heard nothing for about three more weeks until I received a generic you are no longer under consideration email. Not sure what took so long for them to just tell me that.

    The hiring process what quick and to the point. I applied online and got a call from the recruiter. I went to the interview where they gave me a quick one in one and then went to take an assessment on the computer in a quiet room. After passing the assessment, I had another interview with an interviewer, then they had me wait. Another woman came and got me from the waiting room where they asked me questions about my eligibility to work in the US. I was then offered the position. My interviewers were friendly and informative.

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Allstate.

    It depends on the position you are being hired.For me it was like 2 rounds of technical interview one from offshore team and one from onshore team. One managerial round and last HR round. You can well negotiate with HR during the interview about salary. Process will take around 3-4 weeks of time till offer is released.

    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Allstate in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed on campus by stopping by the career fair. Allstate had a booth set up with a few individuals who were currently in the Leadership Development Program (LDP). I asked one of the individuals if they had any opportunities for BBA students and they informed be about the LDP program.

    Within 5 minutes they asked if they could sign me up for an interview the following morning and penciled me into their calendar.

    The next morning I interviewed with 2 Allstate employees (1 LDP and 1 non-LDP). The interview lasted ~45 minutes and consisted of 3-5 behavioral interview questions ("tell me about a time when..."). At the end of the interview I was asked if I was available in 30 minutes for an additional interview.

    30 minutes later I returned to another interviewing room (on campus) and interviewed with a very nice middle-aged man. That interview lasted 5-10 minutes and ended up being the final screening for me to get an offer.

    The gentleman obviously approved of me and I was offered the position 2 days later.

    I had 2 weeks to decide to accept or reject the offer. Every LDP starts at $55,000 (except the TLDP's) so there is no negotiation possible.

    Interview Details

    Very difficult process. Had to constantly call the recruiter to see if things were progressing. The recruiter would ask me to call her every week because she was going to forget to follow up if I didn't remind her. Very unprofessional. I asked clarifying questions regarding benefits and never got answers from her.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewers did a lot of the talking. I wasn't asked very many questions.   Answer Question
