I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Allstate Workplace in November 2011.
Interview Details – Initial application was two months prior to interivew. Received email from recruiter for phone interview. After phone interview, had to reapply online for position and then take an online assessment. Received immediate response that I passed assesment. Within a few days was contacted by email for a 2:1 interview (consisted of how you handle certain situations good and bad). After about a week was contacted again for second interview which was a 1:1 with department supervisor. Brief interview, asked what I liked and disliked about previous jobs and supervisors. Sat with an employee to ask questions about the job. Received an email from recruiter about two weeks later that another candidate was offered the position. The recruiter encouraged me to check the website and apply for any positions I may be interested in.
