    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got an email to schedule a phone interview within a 3-4 weeks. Spoke with an HR hiring manager for initial vetting for 30-4 0min, and afterwards was told I seemed like a good fit, and they'd like me to come in for an in-person interview. The in person interview was scheduled as a full-day interview, with two 1hr meetings with two different managers within the department, followed by a 3 hour case study. The case study consisted of 2 parts, the first part which was supposed to take about 2 hours, and the second part 1 hour. A good knowledge of Microsoft Excel & Visio was helpful for the case studies. After the full-day interview, I was sent a link to complete a critical & analytical thinking assessment from my own computer, which was to take 30-45min. After 2-3 days, I got a followup from HR saying that I had scored well on the case study and that the team would like me to come in for a final round of interviews. This time around, I met with the department director and the manager I would be reporting to, followed by a meeting with the HR hiring manager. The next morning I received a call from HR with a verbal offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied then two months later passed phone screen. Two in person interviews within 3 weeks with supervisors and the department head. They were obscure in the questions and evasive when I asked in-depth questions about the role, repeatedly saying the staff I'd oversee were seasoned and set in their ways to expect pushback if any changes. They seemed interested in me. I followed up per protocol with thank you's and phoned several times over a 6-wk period without a response. Finally after nearly two months get they replied they went with someone else. Perhaps they simply were meeting quotas with no intent to hiring anyone.
