    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Blue Cross.

    Interview Details

    I had 3 phone interviews (outside recruiter, internal recruiter, hiring manager) then on-site interview with 4 other Directors, one after the other. I came away with the favorable impression that there are some terribly bright people who work for BCBSA. I asked some questions at the end of each interview that I thought might give each Director pause, but they knocked the questions out of the park. Seems like a great place to work.

    It was a nightmare. They only talked to me for 10 min. They didn't even take time to look at my experience. I think they already had their candidate chosen and they were just going thru the motions

    ELearning Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Blue Cross in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first received a call from the recruiting department who asked me some basic qualification questions. After a conversation with recruiting, a phone interview was scheduled to speak with the department manager and a few employees. After the telephone interview, recruiting called later that day to schedule an on-site interview (I live out of state and the company paid for round trip airfare, a rental car, hotel, and lunch). The on-site interview took about 5 hours, but it was very laid back and included meeting other employees, lunch, practice assessment, and a tour of Columbia.

    It was very cookie cutter, they contract all their recruiting for technical roles, so it's all questions you have heard before. Office was nice, multiple interviewers, felt intimidating at first... But literally just a same old interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Blue Cross in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through indeed.com and after I sent in my application I received an assessment to do online which I must have passed because a week later I received a phone interview. After talking with the phone interviewer I moved on to the actual in person interview. I arrived prompt at 7 am and was lead back to a room with two ladies whom interviewed me. There were several sections to the process. I came prepared with the usual interview questions like: strengths weakness, about me and other usual questions however I was not prepared for 5 pages of scenario questions. Like tell me about a time when you made a mistake how did you fix it? Tell me what would you do if you had a new supervisor how would you work around them. Tell me about a time you came upon a problem this and that. After all those questions they gave me a paper interview asking me several questions how I would handle a client. After all that they came back into the room and did some role playing. After the role playing exercise they gave me the opportunity to ask some questions. I was not offered a job however when I asked them my questions they were surprised by my questions. So my suggestion would be come prepared to the best of your ability. I asked them why do they like working there? Is there anything i can do in my first 90 days that would ensure my success at bcbs. I also asked them if they had any constructive criticism for me. They do hair test and background tests.
