IT Intern Interview

IT Intern
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Hcsc.

Interview Details – Applied online and received e-mail from recruiter with questions to answer. Met with recruiter during job fair and she said an interview within several weeks. 7 months later and no interview. Recruiter won't even reply to my e-mails.

HCSC is a really unprofessional firm. Their people are disorganized and make empty promises to you. Terrible attitude, terrible company.

Very Easy Interview

Attorney Interview

Attorney
Chicago, IL

Interviewed at Hcsc

Interview Details – I exchanged around 50 emails with the recruiter and HR. Conducted an initial 30 minute phone interview with the recruiter, another longer interview with HR, and finally a phone interview with the GC. At the last interview, I was told that I was among the final candidates, and that I was to wait for a schedule for a face-to-face interview. A few weeks later, after several follow-up calls and emails went ignored, I received a form email, with my name misspelled and all lower case, letting me know that I was not selected for the job. I have never dealt with a more unprofessional or worse-organized bunch.

Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected questions.   Answer Question

Manager Interview

Manager
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Hcsc in July 2013.

Interview Details – Eventually got a job, but had several interviews and most often interviewing managers were not prepared, 75% of the time they have someone in mind already.
What you need to know from a long time veteran

Leadership openings 75% or more of the time they have someone already in mind
Sr professional level 50% of the time they have someone in mind, but be prepared by understanding the work involved, and convey your ability to get the job done.
Great place for entry or mid level jobs.
Recommendations help at HCSC.

Negotiation Details – It was a good offer, plus I was an internal candidate, they do not negotiate much with internal candidates

Information Quality Analyst Interview

Information Quality Analyst
Naperville, IL

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – All questions were average for me since I have been doing the job for more than 15 years   View Answer

The process took 1 week - interviewed at Hcsc in October 2011.

Interview Details – Brief phone interview with HR to set up in person interview. Had a 1 hour interview with hiring manager and another manager. Briefly met the Director.
The interview was pretty relaxed, no difficult questions, it was more conversational. Had good rapport with the people I spoke with. Beautiful office and great location right off of Lake Shore Drive. Great views from the offices.

Actuarial Interview

Actuarial
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed 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 Question – Questions were pretty standard just out of college questions. There weren't really any "Google" type questions asked.   Answer Question
