Claims Examiner Interview

Claims Examiner

Interviewed at Blue Cross

Interview Details – Two interviews. One with HR. She seemed very uninterested and drilled me with robotic questions. She was older (I was way younger) and appeared to be judgemental and it really seemed to bother her that I was leaving my previous employment in pursuit of a new one. But because I passed all of the pretests with flying colors, she had no choice but to pass my resume on to the hiring manager. The second interview was with the hiring manager. She was extremely friendly and had an awesome personality.

Interview Question – Why would you want to leave where you're at now? It seems like an ok job.   View Answer

I applied online - interviewed at Blue Cross in July 2013.

Interview Details – One online question list first, then the Hiring manager called though the phone with some basic question, like tell me about your internship and why you interested in being an actuary. Finally they invited me to go their office for face to face interview. It was six and half hours long with no offer. I don't know why and before the interview I did not get any sleep because the flight. My interview was in taxes and I lived in California, the worst thing was the flight ticket that they booked for me was canceled so I have to take red eye flight from 12:00am to 6:00am.
