    Trial Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Allstate in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Approximately a week and a half after applying online, I received an email asking me to provide my availability for a phone interview. The phone interview lasted around 30 minutes and was conducted by HR. It was a typical pre-screen phone interview and merely a screening process. After that I set up an in person interview, which was set to last 30 minutes. The interview ended up taking an hour. I was interviewed by two individuals in the Chicago legal department, both of whom were really nice. They said they had some formal questions to ask me, and apologized for having to read off of a script. I apparently answered many of their "must-ask" questions in one answer, so after that we had more of a conversation about the position and my background. The interview was typical of ones I've had in the past. They asked questions such as "tell me about your background," and "what's one employment situation you were in where you had a conflict and how did you solve it?" There was no unexpected questions. I thought the interview went great. I followed up with thank you notes and heard nothing a week after so I emailed HR asking for a timeline and she didn't know when I would find out. I followed up a week after that with the people I interviewed with and HR and got no response. Over a month passed before I received any word, and simply got the generic "thanks for applying this position was filled or our hiring needs changed" letter that people who didn't even get an interview got. I was very disappointed in the company's post-interview conduct. I shouldn't have to wait over a month to hear ANYTHING, despite numerous follow-up attempts.

    Interview Details

    There are three rounds of interviews in total. The first interview is with HR to discuss your general information in the resume. The second round is very technical and I consider it very hard. If you passed the second round, you will invite to the final round in their home office.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Allstate.

    Interview Details

    Applied online eight years ago. Was called within a few days by recruiter to set up date and time for interview. Showed up for verbal interview and had to take a computer based test first, called the Leap Test. Test mostly pertained to morals and how you would react to certain situations. If that test was not passed, there would be no interview. Passed the test and interviewed with two managers - one asked the questions and one took notes. It was 2-3 weeks later when I heard from Allstate and they offered me a position.
