    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts.

    Interview Details

    When I arrived to the onsite interview I was greeted by the hiring manager. I went through a string of three interviews; each lasting about 30 minutes. I was also given a sample writing test. The interview questions were pretty straight forward and nothing out of the ordinary. It was a very pleasant experience.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts.

    Interview Details

    You will be asked many behavioral based questions..and you are aksed for alot of examples of customer service, dealing with a "irate" caller, or a time you went above and beyond. The people that interview you are usually other Leaders or Supervisors in the Call center where you will work, so they know what they are looking for.

    Interview Questions

    Provider Service Representative for Hingham, MA Location Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hingham, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Hingham, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via email and the first step was a video recorded screening interview using HireVue.You record your answers to their questions using a webcam then they view it on their time.
    A couple days later I was invited to an in person interview where I met with two call center leaders. 95% of the questions are behavioral and asking about specific instances where X happened and how you responded, which was just too much (especially if you've never been in those situations) and many were the same question restated. Because of what they asked I never had the chance to explain how I'd excel at the job. Last part was a mock roleplay call where I pretended to help a caller (the interviewer) with a problem you pick from a list. This went well, but was unclear if I should be 100% "in character", how serious I had to be etc.

    Sent a thank you email then followed up after not hearing back after a couple weeks. Eventually got a generic rejection email.
