    Interview Details

    Although BCBSA has a "strategic recruiting" framework, the interview process does not seem to impact the decision very much. Most people get hired because they are the right place and right time but most importantly - they know the right person.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online December 2013. Received a phone call from HR February 2014. Subsequently did two phone interviews - one with HR rep and the other with the hiring manager. Following those two phone interviews, had an in-person interview with six different people throughout the organization, meeting with each individually for about 30 minutes. Following the interview, I was told I would have an answer within two weeks. It ended up taking about 4-5 weeks to finally get an answer.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and they called back. Invited me to an in person interview. They told me they would take a week. All was fine. Until after the interview, when they completely ignored me. It was extremely unprofessional. I wrote a followup email, I called. Not only did they not return my email, I called the lady, she picked up and hung up on me. What is this? This is a well established company and yet the HR is ridiculously unprofessional? In the end, I took another offer. Whatever. Screw you Blue Cross. I hope whoever you hired accepted the offer and choke on the last day and decided to not take it. And looking at other reviews, this is not the first time that they completely ignored an applicant after an interview. I don't get it. If you don't want to pursue someone, there's nothing wrong or that time consuming about a phone call or an email.
