Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Allstate in November 2012.
Interview Details – I got an email from the HR the same day I applied online for the intern position! They sent an email to set up a time for a phone talk with the HR. That interview lasted 15-20 minutes with basic questions on my background, schooling and projects, They then sent me an email to set up a time for a phone conversation with the hiring team the next week. The interview was not difficult. The interviewers very very friendly and asked questions about myself, my coursework, class projects and more importantly my PhD thesis work. There were three interviewers - the Director of Marketing Sciences Research, Senior Marketing Manager and another Marketing Manager. There was just one question on probability. Overall, a very easy process. They said that they were interviewing a couple more candidates and would let me know their decision in a couple of weeks. After a couple of weeks, they asked me if I could come in for a 1:1 interview the next week. This was relatively simple and they asked me in detail about my thesis. No technical questions. I got the offer in the next two weeks.

Interview Details – Phone interview then 3.5 hour on campus interview. The on-campus interview was with 4 different people. Asked basic but really not technical processes, which surprised me. One person just sat with me in the room because the original interviewer was out of the office. The interviewers explained to me their processes, and I questioned them (processes seemed outdated). One interviewer was a prick who said the only problem he sees with me was that I worked for the competitor( replied back in a non pc way). After about 2 hours I began to get bored and realized that the grass is not greener and the company I currently work for is AWESOME. It appeared that the company needed some process improvements
Interview Question – What steps would you take to gather documentation. Answer Question
I applied online - interviewed at Allstate in May 2009.
Interview Details – Submitted resume and coverletter online, phone interview, in-person interview (by the manager and 2 other members of the OD team)
Interview Question – During my interview, the woman who was part of the OD team rolled her eyes at one of my answers. So unprofessional. I knew then, I did not get the job. She was brought be back down to the lobby and during the ride in the elevator, she asked me my plans for the weekend. Fake and unprofessional. No, thank you. A year later, they advertised for the same position again. In fact, I have been monitoring job postings at Allstate. They advertise for the same position every year or so. Makes one wonder why there is a quick turnover in the position. Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Allstate in November 2009.
Interview Details – Met with recruiters at university campus job fair. They were nice and excited about the potential I had at Allstate. Was invited to a college recruitment day. The day was well organized aside from the interviews themselves.
I interviewed for a vast array of positions including: Project Manager, Process Re-Engineering Analyst, Business Analyst, and Architect.
Most of the interviewers had no idea what they were talking about.
Specifically the architecture interview was the worst. At the end of the interview the interviewer let me know that he knew he was using incorrect terms, diagrams, etc during the interview and that it all was just test to see if I really knew what the right answers were. I would later find out that the architect I interviewed with had no idea what he was talking about and was let go days later. I've never understood why they chose that specific resource to conduct interviews.
I got several offers from Allstate and accepted the one from the team that I felt had the most competent interviewer.
Interview Question – Asked to draw a use case and did, but was told that I was drawing it incorrectly. Interviewer wanted a concept diagram, but asked for a use case. Later admitted he was "just messing with me"........ unacceptable View Answer
Negotiation Details – They allowed me to have years of experience count towards my service date which doubled my vacation days and enhanced some other benefits. Most of the offers were bottom dollar. The HR rep told me that because I was unemployed they would only offer the minimum salary. This later had to be corrected by a VP in order to get close to the salary cluster for my team.
