Disability Benefits Analyst Interview
I applied online – interviewed at The Standard.
1. Phone Interview 2. In-Person Interview 3. A phone call a week later I was told I did not get the job. They do use the behavior based interview questions, so next time I would prepare more with those sorts of questions. In general the process was corporate and easy.

phone interview with HR mainly about resume and background. Then one month later an in person panel interview with general interview questions. Then a final interview and offer. The people interviewing were a mix between managerial staff and analysts. they all seemed largely uninterested in being there.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at The Standard (Portland, OR) in September 2012.
First I had a phone interview with an HR person. This was basically a standard who are you type interview with some specific behavior-type questions thrown in. The HR recruiter was very nice and even coached me a bit in what the hiring managers were looking for. Then I was called back and set up an interview with the two managers that were hiring for that position.
- The questions were all straightforward and expected based on my background and experience. They do employ the bevavioral interview process so they are looking for specific examples in your past rather than how you think you would perform. Answer Question

Telephone screen by HR followed by an interview with 2 people, one who will be the hiring manager. Interviews take about an hour and include behavioral based questions. For the analyst position, depending on the talent pool, it is helpful to have prior claims experience. If not, a skill set that matches the position is helpful. Multiple attorneys have been hired into the position as a result of the need to understand the constantly changing landscape of claims and litigation.
- Give me an example of when you had to escalate a situation. What was the situation, what did you do, how did you decide to escalate it? Answer Question
