    Information Quality Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Naperville, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at HCSC in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    My personal first and only impression of, Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC) /Hallmark Service Corporation, is that they are not professional.

    I had two interviews (Subsidiary/Hallmark Services Corp) totaling more 3.5 hours of my time, and not once did they ever give me any feedback, either by email or phone. If I was truly one of their finalists, as the hiring manager said, you’d think they would have the class and corporate professionalism to inform the applicant when they have made a decision on a candidate. You would think the Hiring Manager would see to this as a professional courtesy to the applicant.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at HCSC in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly laid back and straightforward. There were a series of interviews with different managers from the department and a casual lunch with two of the current actuarial students. Everyone was very polite and helpful and really wanted to make certain that I understood the benefits (and consequences) of their student program. Overall, it was a very smooth and pain-free process.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were pretty standard just out of college questions. There weren't really any "Google" type questions asked.   Answer Question
