    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Moines, IA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Wellmark in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was called the day after I submitted my resume. Really submitted it as a joke as I was really overqualified. Online 'interview' was pretty basic to the point of being laughable. Clearly the interviewer had no knowledge of the questions that were being asked, just was typing my responses to pass on to the next level. I even through in some weird terminology that wasn't even real and she typed it up. I had to put my phone on mute briefly while I laughed.

    Interview Questions
    • "Tell me about yourself." I mean could an interviewer ask a more stupid question? You have my resume and a cover letter. I wanted to say, "Can you read?"   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The in person interviews really talked down to me, treated me like a second class citizen. It just seemed like I'd never be able to make a difference in a land of committees and suck ups.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Des Moines, IA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Moines, IA
    Application Details

    The process took 6 months - interviewed at Wellmark in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    It took forever for them to make a decision on hiring---six months from the date of phone interview to job offer. The phone interview was easy. However, I waited several months to get an "in person" interview. The in person interview was with 4 levels of management---seemed like overkill to me.

    Interview Questions
    • The VP didn't ask many questions...mainly warned me that insurance companies are not well liked by the general public.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    During the phone interview, I asked what their salary range would be for the job. The range they quoted was too low for me and I told them so....since I didn't want to waste my time. I told them what my range was and said that I wouldn't take a cut.

    Clinical Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Des Moines, IA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Moines, IA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Wellmark in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    The people organizing the interview took a very long time(I applied in January, I interviewed in April) to get back to me after initially telling me how interested they were in me. I had been referred by a director within the organization and asked to apply, so I was surprised by the length of time it took. When I did get the interview, I had less than a week to find an entire day I could be there for the interview. On the day of the interview, they were having a casual day, so I showed up in an appropriate suit and heels and they were in khakis and jeans. The group interview was not intense, but it also was not warm. Communication was exclusively with HR. The entire posting to finding out they had hired someone else through the grapevine took eight months. No one communicated the position was filled.
