    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (Detroit, MI) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Case based, I wasn't prepared for it and subsequently performed poorly. Interviewer was lackadaisical, I knew he wasn't going to select me for the position anyway. He came off as somewhat rude and abrasive. It's partly my fault for not finding out earlier that it was to be a case interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (Detroit, MI) in April 2013.

    Interview

    If you are selected for an interview after applying, you will be contacted by the department's HR representative to set up an interview. Typically you will have 2 interviews, one with the manager(s) and one with other analysts. Sometimes this is combined into one interview.

    My experience thus far has been the information contained in the job posts tend to be much broader than what you will be asked about in the interview. All they really want to know is what you know and what you have done. For example, my job post contained a items on National Healthcare Reform but there was no discussion of policy in the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • "Since you don't have much technical experience in the programs we work with, why should we choose you over someone who does?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Based off my experience and conversations with other employees, salary-negotiation is very difficult. My offer was offered to me informally in conversation and my acceptance of the offer in conversation was taken as my official acceptance, without the documentation or anything like that.
