    Did a phone interview with a human resources employee and the head of the actual department I'd be working under for their summer internship program. It took about half an hour.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Excellus BlueCross BlueShield (New York, NY) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Straight forward, standard HR procedures. Resumes must contain keywords and skills to be picked up by recruiters. I believe drug tests are now required. References are a must. Don't be afraid to negotiate for what you want.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Excellus BlueCross BlueShield (Rochester, NY) in September 2011.

    Interview

    All communications through HR (no surprise). Had 1 interview with hiring manager, that was relatively easy and went well. Used behavioral interviewing. Definitely "feels" corporate and a bit stuffy when you're inside the building. After I was given the job offer I was able to negotiate salary a little bit.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't remember any weird or particularly difficult questions. I believe it was behavioral interviewing.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate salary given my experience in the field.
