I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sedgwick Claims Management Services in February 2010.
Interview Details – People that interviewed me were not qualified to properly interview and experienced candidate. Their ego's heavily outweighed their skillset in Claims and the Interviewing process. The people in charge at this organization and their overinflated ego's shows in the lack of quality service they can provide, and also how they cannot keep any talent within their organization. They are a "revolving door" as an employer, and do not retain anyone that has good to excellent technical skills...this is due to low pay compared to industry averages and poor management.
Interview Question – No questions were difficult or unexpected. The questions asked were "HR 101" junk, which shows the lack of quality people they have working for them in management and decision making positions. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Terrible. When I attempted to negotiate salary at the offer, they told me to take what they offered or they would move on to the next candidate. I took the job only because I had to take something to support my family vs. going on unemployment. They paid a beginning salary to me that I made 10 years prior to this job, which was just pathetic.

Interview Details – Completed online application and intelligence test. I then interview with the claims director for about an hour and was asked to come back for a second interview. Went into second interview as a final candidate and spoke with the claims vice president and a panel or client representatives. I was advised they would make a decision in a few days. No one ever got back t me and i emailed the original person I spoke with who advised me that they decided to go with an inside candidate.

I applied in-person and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Sedgwick Claims Management Services in September 2011.
Interview Details – Interviews consist of all the same questions always, behavioral. If you are given an interview and do not get the position you will know what questions they are going to ask for your next interview. When you are interviewing it is frustrating because the interviewer is only looking at the paper they are writing on and they do not supply you any eye contact, rude if you ask me.
The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sedgwick Claims Management Services in December 2011.
Interview Details – Applied online. A few weeks later, I got an email from a recruiter, saying my resume had been reviewed, and I needed to take a few online tests. I took a personality test and an IQ test, that was more interesting than difficult. Allow some time to complete both of these. I then got a call from a HR recruiter to schedule an interview. I interviewed witha hiring manager who asked the basic questions. I thought it went well, but didn't recieve an offer.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Sedgwick Claims Management Services in December 2011.
Interview Details – I applied online and was contacted the next day, however I missed the call and attempted to reach the recruiter at least three time that week leaving messages. She did finally call me at the end of the week ans set up and interview for that following Monday. She sent me a link to take a couple of quizzes, which you can google the answer for some of them. I interviewed with both supervisors who were hiriing. They asked very basic interview questions. I sent a thank you email to the person I interviewed with. After a week I sent one to the recruiter to find out the status, a waited another week and heard nothing. So that third week I emailed the person I actually sat down with to find out the status and to advise why again I thought I would be a great candidate. That same week on Friday I got a call and was offered the position.
Interview Question – How would you handle a angry customer? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They call telling you the salary and benefits. I didn't even try to negotiate because I already was ready to leave my current job.
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Sedgwick Claims Management Services in November 2011.
Interview Details – I interviewed with Sedgwick CMS, about a week before Thanksgiving. I thought the interview went fine. I was told after my interview I would know something next week. The following week I received a call from ADP, a background check service. I was told more info was needed from me which I returned the same day. I kept in contact with them and nothing else was needed . I also called and talked with the manager who advised me background checks were being done, which I already knew and that I would know something within the next week. It is now January 1st , 2012. I have not received a call, email or letter letting me know that I did or did not get the job. So I am in complete limbo. This is a horrible way to keep in contact with a applicant, especially after I was told I would know the following week , and a background check done on me and still no offer or denial. By the way they are still posting for the job weekly.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sedgwick Claims Management Services in August 2009.
Interview Details – Utterly painful. While I was interviewing, I felt the process was because they liked to ensure consensus in decisions. I later found out, that wasn't the case. In fact, the hiring manager wanted to pass but every other manager in the building wanted to hire. The hiring manager gave in to the pressure, then did everything possible to work against me. So, in hindsight, the interview process was so painful not because it might have been competitive, it was because the organization didn't really know what it was doing.
Interview Question – I was asked to screening test. The company reportedly places a high emphasis on the results of this test. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not bad. Make certain you understand the demands of the work environment.
