    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (Hingham, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through a hiring agency. I quickly went in for an interview which lasted less than 20 minutes. I was interviewed by two supervisors in the department who were friendly and polite. They quickly ran down a brief list of pre-written, very standard interview questions. It seemed they were more interested in just filling a spot which was fine with me at the time and for this particular position. The interview process itself (setting it up and doing it) took two days. It took another week or two to sort of the administrative stuff on their end (getting me security and computer access and such)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (Boston, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I started off submitting my application, a few days/weeks later I received an email that I would have a phone interview. It lasted about 30 minutes, just walking through my resume, fairly easy. A few days later I learned that I would go in and interview with 6 different people for 30-45 minutes each. I was nervous, but it was pretty easy, just walking through my resume and answering some basic data/health insurance questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts.

    Interview

    Applied online. A couple of phone interviews (HR, Hiring Mgr) then onsite for several hour long interviews. Overall a rather routine experience but on the slower side. Interviews were straight forward looking for specific experience which could be matched to job needs. Did not appear to be much coordination across different interviewers in question area etc.

    Interview

    First had an on campus formal interview, where they asked an assortment of basic interview questions. Next step was an online assessment, which just tested how you would respond to certain scenarios . The third step was another 1 on 1 interview with a hiring manager and a role play, in which you had a sample phone call where you had to explain a process to the hiring manager.
