Intern II Interview

Intern II

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at WellPoint in February 2012.

Interview Details – 1 phone interview and 3 in-office interviews with Vice Presidents, Directors, and Managers from HR and Commercial Business. Interviews were very relaxed and conversational. Most questions were regarding my motivations to apply for the role and experiences on my resume. BE SURE TO RESEARCH & MEMORIZE ALL YOU CAN ABOUT THE COMPANY. Showing that you did your research will set you apart moreso with this company than if you were to do the same for other companies.

Interview Question – The only "difficult" questions were the situational questions which you would hear from any other company. Nothing exceptionally difficult here, at least in my experience.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Hourly pay for interns seems to be high above market and are non-negotiable.

Individual Sales Representative Interview

Individual Sales Representative
Chantilly, VA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at WellPoint in June 2011.

Interview Details – Hiring process was fast; two phone interviews and a face to face. Extremely long phone interviews. 45 minutes or longer. Director was arrogant and pushy in his demeanor on the phone and in person. I was expecting the friendly Blue Cross Blue Shield approach, but that was not what I got. It was more of a churn and burn process.

Interview Question – Can you make 100 calls every day?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Commission and salary were extremely vague. This company has a very high layoff rate.

Claims Examiner Interview

Claims Examiner
Middletown, NY

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

Interview Details – You will get a phone call from a third party company asking you 5 bazillion questions, then another call with far less questions then you will get a call for the personal interview which in my case was pretty easy considering I had already been on over 50 interviews and I was 15 years older than the interviewer.

Interview Question – None really but again I had been on so many and I enjoy sales, most came pretty easy. I do love the "where do you see yourself five years from now" question.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. You either accept or don't. At the time I was already out of work fora year and eight months so I had to take it to get back in the race.
