- Declined OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California (San Francisco, CA) in October 2015.
Three interviewers. They presented an overview of the job position and the key areas it would involve. They presented their current problems and asked how I would solve them. I took each key area and asked each interviewer what their pain point was in that area. I then directed my answer for solving their current problem by showing how I would resolve their pain point. For instance, a key area was standardization and their pain points were every team submitting status in a different format, and team leads continuously pushing out timelines. I recommended enforcing a single status format that was exec approved to ensure the execs were getting the right data they needed for decisions. I also recommended a weekly status meeting where team leads needed to personally account for their timelines as compared to their previous week's progress. Changes in timelines would not occur without driver approval, so all delays would need to be investigated, alternate solutions proposed to get back on track, and then bring this information to the project driver and/or owner for their participation and approvals, if needed.

First a phone call screening, phone interview with hiring manager, then in person interview with the hiring manager and VP. The interview process was easy, but after the interview they never got back nor responded to the follow-up emails; which I thought was very unprofessional.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California (Sacramento, CA) in June 2015.

They asked me to come in for a face to face interview on 6/29/15 which consisted of a series of behavioral questions. Both interviews were went very quick and both interviewers were very pleasant.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.
The interview takes about 3 weeks from 2 phone interview to 1 on-side interview, I did not get offer because I did not perform well in case-base questions. The hire managers are very kind. The BSOC is a great company which I really want to join. I learnt a lot during the interview even I failed it.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California.
Phone screening interview with the recruiter and then an interview with the direct hiring manager followed by interviews with three other directors who would be stakeholder for the person in this role. It was a pretty standard process. Most of the people interviewing with the exception of one person had been in their roles 3 - 6 months.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California (San Francisco, CA) in January 2015.
I did a number of informational interviews through my network and I applied to a few job through the website. I had someone internally refer me for one of the positions I applied for on the website. I got a call from a recruiter, then I had a phone conversation with the hiring manager, then they called me in to interview in person with the hiring manager. This all took about 2 months...so it was NOT a fast process. In the end, they cancelled the job.

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California in October 2014.
They requested an on-campus interview with me after receiving my résumé through our statistics department. Met for fifteen minutes with an analyst from Los Angeles area. Conversational meeting, very relaxed. Interviewer just wanted to get a feel of how you handle group projects and what you know. Interviewer did not expect me to be an expert with their software. I was given time at the end to ask questions about their company, office culture, etc.
