I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CCC Information Services in April 2014.

Data Architect Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CCC Information Services.
Interview Details – The HR approached me about a Data Architect position in CCC and is interviewed by 4 people. The guys who interviewed me were showing clear negative signals about the environment in which they are operating in. I learned from them that they have been going through a lot of changes ( people and process) and they are really not conformable with it. The Hiring Manager was a found to be pretty unprofessional.
Interview Question – Tell me something about you :) Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I learned that its an unprofessional and micro-managed environment. They have a work schedule of 55- 60 hours in office and then more work from home. The VP to whom the hiring manager report to even said 55 hr week is normal and is expected. And the compensation was that great either.
IOS Developer Interview (Negative Experience)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at CCC Information Services in July 2012.
Interview Details – Submitted application via online job sites several times. Eventually a recruiter contacted me. Should have know they were trouble. He was a bit abrasive and definitely rude. But he scheduled a tech interview for a few days later. Tech interview lasted 1 hr; interviewer was good. Recruiter called me back and said he wanted to schedule an in-person interview. Didn't hear anything for 5 days, then they wanted me to come in 2 days later for a 4 HOUR INTERVIEW. I agreed, filled out their online application. Recruiter called back the day before in the morning to confirm. He called back 5 hrs later to CANCEL. Claimed the position was put on hold, but they reposted the job on Dice already!

Middleware Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at CCC Information Services in October 2011.
Interview Details – I had very bad experience with CCC. they called me twice for in person interview. they did not pay me for those expenses and they still did not give me offer.
I had 2 phone interviews before in person interview. I applied for software engineer job but they also told me that they also considering me for lead role.
In 1st in person interview. They asked me to give test which I cleared with very good marks. After that there was panel interview with 3 team leads. After that I had interview with 1 VP and 2 directors, seperate interview with each one. And that concluded the day. Next day they called me and told me that they are really interested in me and want me to come for one more round of in person interview. I again travelled to Chicago next week and had an interview with 2 more VPs. And after all this they said they are not interested. I got the negative feedback after 3 days and that was also not quick.
Over all very very bad experience.
Interview Question – VP was asking technical questions and making salary negotiations. I don’t know why the technical team and HR team is there if everything is handled by VPs. Answer Question
Customer Service Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at CCC Information Services in October 2010.
Interview Details – Applied online. Received a phone call about 4 days after stating they were interested in "proceeding with an interview". Seemed like an impromptu phone interview.. asking when I was available, what I believed the position entailed, why I was interested in the position. Very pleasant experience via phone. Scheduled an interview, showed up early and had to fill out a paper asking what my career goals were, why I was interested in the position, what skills I can bring to the company.
The 'lobby' was just about ten feet from where all the employees work, so you can see and hear everything they are doing. Seemed like a very relaxed environment.
Interviewer was about 10 minutes late. It was not who I spoke with on the phone. Asked very generic questions like tell me about your goals. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Tell me about your past employment. Name a task in which you were required to make a quick decision without management approval.
Interviewer had a 5 or 6 page sheet of questions she skipped around on.. didn't ask all the questions on it, but picked and chose. Interviewer seemed impatient, rude almost. It was very uncomfortable. Asked absolutely NOTHING about qualifications for the job opening or prior experience.. just kept asking generic questions like stated above. Did not even give a chance to explain qualifications for the open position.
Overall, a very uncomfortable interview. Very drilling. Had nothing to do with the actual job. Just generic, uneducated HR questions.
Interview was in the past day.. wanted to write the review before I forgot questions and whatnot. Interviewer stated she will get together with other management to discuss interviews and will respond either way within a week.

Field Insurance Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at CCC Information Services in September 2010.
Interview Details – Applied on their website. Then talked to contact I had withing the company to initiate interview. Once the interview was scheduled it was a 30 minute phone call. It was mostly discussing the territory, responsibilities, and my experience. I then had a second phone call to discuss compensation. Once that was was done, there were no more phone calls. We were un able to see eye to eye on this topic.
Interview Question – How low would I be willing to take the job for. View Answer
Reason for Declining – The position did not have the salary range I would need to leave my current job. I felt it was a bit low even for the job, but for many others it may have been ok. The benefits came close to compensating for that, but it came down to dollars for dollars in the end.
