    Customer Claims Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Allstate in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received a call to do a 10 minute interview about things you have experienced in the past such as a difficult situation with a customer. Then they sent an online questionnaire to see if you had the right personally for the job. I then received an email saying I passed and should expect a follow up call soon. About 3 days later I was asked to come in for a formal interview. I was told to be 10-15 minutes early. It was within a week I was asked to come in for an interview from the phone interview. It was 4 weeks after I applied that I initially was contacted. In the interview I sat with one manager. It was pretty laid back and an enjoyable experience. I was there for one hour. I was asked a couple formal questions, given information on the company policies and dress code, a lot of it was more getting to know myself and the company. I was then taken on a tour of the facility, and sat with a Claims Specialist on a phone call to see what types of situations they deal with. Then I was taken back to the interview room with the manager. They asked if I thought I could see myself working there. I said yes because it seemed like something I would like to do. We sat for about 5 more minutes and I was told I would 've contacted soon with an answer. The next day I was offered the position and I took it.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Allstate.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the position online through the careers website. After about two weeks I received a phone call from HR to schedule a 30 minute phone interview. The phone interview was a basic review of my resume and why I was interested in the position.

     A couple days after I was contacted to schedule an in person interview. This consisted of 3 rounds of 30 minute interviews with 2-3 mangers/analysts. Everyone I interviewed with was friendly and energetic. The interviews themselves weren't difficult. We reviewed my resume and why I wanted to the position again. There were then about 3-5 behavior questions each round to see how I've handled various situations in the past.

    I was told that I would be contacted in about 2 weeks with a decision. Surprisingly I was contacted a couple days later with an offer which I accepted.

    Interview Details

    First interview held by phone, second by video conference, third was all day in person interview. Interview process was difficult, but fair. Multiple people were involved in interviewing me, and I was asked to submit a work sample before I came in for the in person interview. Interview was primarily behavioral questions, very few "standard" interview questions like "Tell me the best and worst thing about yourself."

    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Allstate in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Per the interviewer, Allstate is currently expanding its big data group, hoping to double its size by hiring another 20 data scientists this year. They are hiring all levels of data scientists.

    The interviewer was friendly and professional, and asked about experience with various big data platforms and software. He indicated they are particularly interested in people with experience with Python and Hadoop.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were particularly difficult or unexpected; the interview was straightforward and did not contain a technical component (except for asking about experience in various statistical languages/programs). The most difficult question for me, however, was what experience I have had in business/industry, since I have none. (All my experience is an academia.) Based on the interviewer's tone and subsequent questions, I believe that answer took me out of contention for the job.   Answer Question

    I applied online and received a e-mail two days later for a phone interview. After the phone interview I had a interview in person the next week.

After the interview he waked me around the building and then let me know I will get a call the following week if I got the job. I was actually called back two hours after the interview by HR to tell me I got the job.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Allstate.

    Interview Details

    I first put my application in online. I applied 3 times overall:

    1.) The first time, I put in my application and I was sent an email about 3 weeks later saying that I hadn't been chosen.
    2.) The second time, I put in my application and I was emailed to set up a phone screen. The phone screen wasn't too hard and I was given an online assessment to take. I passed it with flying colors, but I was passed up for an in person interview.
    3.) The third time, I was given an in person interview with two HR representatives. Their office manager was on vacation and I'm going back next week to speak with them and shadow with a current Claims Adjuster.

    An overall positive experience.
