I applied online – interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota.
I was invited via e-mail to participate in an on-demand Montage telephone interview. BCBS provided a link to a website where I entered my telephone number and pressed send (or something similar). A computerized system called me back and a synthesized, non-human voice asked me questions, most of which I was unable to answer within the allotted time. About 10 seconds before my time was up for each question, I was encouraged by the synthesized, non-human voice to wrap up and by the time I was allowed to continue my answer, I had 3 seconds before I was told by that damn computer that it was time for the next question. As a professional in the HR field, I am shocked and frankly insulted that any reputable organization would utilize this interviewing method for ANY position, let alone for a position in HR. The whole process leads me to believe that this organization views the function as being neither human nor a resource. Unfortunate.

Over the phone by an HR person, who really did not understand the business. This was the HR person that was responsible for the B to B business unit and was acting as a gate keeper which I understand, but the discussion did not allow me time to ask any questions.
- Asked many situational questions such as, what would you do ... Asked me to go through my resume. This phone interview was only 1/2 hour and once that time was hit, the HR person ended the call. 1 Answer

A on-demand phone interview was conducted via Montage. I received an invitation via email, followed a link, signed in, and proceeded to an automated interview that consisted of several questions. I was also sent an invitation to do online testing for data entry skills which was an easy process as well. As it turned out, they cancelled the requisition for the position so no offer was extended.

I applied online. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota (Eagan, MN) in April 2014.
Interview process was long, greater than four months from start to finish. The process was confusing as the position title kept changing throughout the process. I had a total of four interviews, thought I connected well, but in the end wasn't offered a position. I found it frustrating to go back so many times, not have contact at the decision point, and continue to see the position reposted at least monthly.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota (Eagan, MN).
They have a very professional hiring process. The company is so big they provide a map for you sent via email. The worst part of the hiring process was that they have an outside company that does their background checks. This outside company has made many mistakes and it was a very bad experience. I was surprised I was hired due to the errors in their reporting.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota in October 2013.
I applied through a university resource, and my interview was a single-round behavioral interview. It was very typical, nothing that caught me off guard. In the interview they will ask if you have a preference where within IT you wish to be placed, and they do a great job aligning you to your interests. I received an offer within 2 weeks of the interview. One of the intern recruiters, Asma, is one of the easiest and most fun to interact with, in my experience.
Did not negotiate.

Three weeks after submitting application online, got a call from talent acquisition specialist. We discussed my resume and job experience. She was very impressed. Two weeks later, I received a call from the HR manager in the division I applied for, another phone interview with two hiring managers. They were very friendly, but did indicate they thought I was over qualified for the job.Was told I'd hear back within a week. But I didn't hear back for three more weeks.
