I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Allstate in November 2012.
Interview Details – Process started off with simple screening call. Once you pass that stage you're invited to the Allstate campus for an all day event. There's a presentation, the feed you, give you a tour of the home office, then break people down into pairs for the interview.
Very basic questions: Tell me something your most proud off, tell me about a time where you struggled, why Allstate.
Nothing to challenging, just know your Resume and go over the basic interview questions.
Interview Question – Tell about a time where you failed Answer Question

Interviewed at Allstate
Interview Details – They asked questions from different categories - such as leadership style - and then they would ask a question from each category such as how to allocate resources or handle a timing crunch. They would (at times) ask for a specific situation in your career that would explain your style.
So you need to listen to the broad category read out and then relate your job experience to a specific question concerning the category. Don't get flustered....take notes if you have to (probably unneeded) and ask for more details if need be.
For example, in the part about allocating resources I did ask for an example to make an abstraction more concrete, so I could answers in terms of the example.
Interview Question – How do you allocate resources? Answer Question
