Administrative Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at WellPoint.

Interview Details – Three stage interview. First contact was by phone to schedule a face-to-face interview. Initial face-to-face interview was with a manager and lead. Typical interview questions were asked (What are your strengths/weaknesses? How would yo describe yourself? Describe a difficult work situation and how you overcame it). Second interview was a phone interview with the higher ups. Similar questions were asked. The third interview was a face-to-face interview. More information about the position was shared.

Interview Question – What would you do if I handed you my credit card and said go get me lunch?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate salary a bit. The initial offer was low. I suggested a higher range with justification and got a $4,300 increase.

Business Analyst II Interview

Business Analyst II
Virginia Beach, VA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4 days - interviewed at WellPoint in March 2014.

Interview Details – My phone interview was arranged by a staffing company. It was for a temporary position so the interviewer got right to the point and asked me to describe my experience with reporting and query language, it only lasted about 10-15minutes. I'm guessing it would be longer/more questions if it weren't for a temporary position.

Interview Question – Interviewer only really asked one question for this temp position, which wasn't difficult or unexpected. "Please describe your experience with reporting in access and SQL."   Answer Question

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager

I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at WellPoint in December 2013.

Interview Details – Applied on-line, no referral or other internal contact. Was approached for the first interview 3 days later, 2nd interview the day after that. I was contacted by the hiring manager 2 days after my 2nd interview with a verbal offer and got my formal offer the day after that. Background check was very fast (2 days), I was told it would take 2 weeks. I requested one round of review on the salary, but was advised there was no room to negotiate at this time, and I accepted the offer. The miss-communication on the length of time for the background check resulted in a delay of my ultimate start date, but allowed me to give my old employer 3 weeks notice.

Interview Question – The interview process was very straight forward and direct. This was a very good match and I think we both realized that very early on.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I requested one round of review on the salary, but was advised there was no room to negotiate at this time, and I accepted the offer.
