    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Protective Life (Birmingham, AL).

    Interview

    Had a 20 min phone screening first. Then around a month later they gave me an on site interview. For the phone screening it was just simple housekeeping questions. Then for the on site interview they really wanted to find out more about me and my experiences. They also required me to take an aptitude test at the end. Entire interview lasted around 2 hours. It was a really good experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Not too bad of an interview, they just went through my entire resume and asked questions about each section.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I had one interview on the phone since I lived in Ohio at the time. Then I flew in for a face to face interview. Met with a potential co-worker and potential boss. Nothing unusual.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Protective Life.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by an in person panel interview. The panel interview asked a bunch of "low level" software questions (think bit-shifting, no framework string manip, etc) even though it was for a web dev position where such skills are absolutely useless.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't ask me any technical questions about what my role would actually be. Did not seem to have a clearly defined roadmap for their group. Could not describe their development process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Protective Life in August 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email asking to confirm a time for a phone interview. If you do well with that, you have an interview at home office with 2-3 managers. Very relaxed, nothing too hard, mainly behaviorial-based questions. Basically they're looking to see if you're able to communicate well with customers and not get stressed-out.

    • "Tell me about a time you were unable to meet a customer's needs and how did you handle it?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, entry-level position.
