    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Allstate.


    Notified via email to set up a phone interview within 48 hours. Phone interview was straight forward behavioral questions and you aren't talking to a person, it's with an automated system. Same week was notified that my resume and responses would be passed on to the hiring manager. Hiring manager contacted me for a phone interview (they preferred in office, however we were unable to schedule a time). This part was very straight forward as well. The interviewers explained why they were asking the questions before actually asking, which kinda gives you an idea of what would be a desirable answer. Notified within a week that I was offered the position.

Doing so means continuing to re-imagine how we do what we do, the impact we can make on the world, ways we can each succeed in our own careers and actions we can take as a company that are good for all. To do that, we need all kinds of people – including lawyers, accountants, building engineers, project managers, marketing professionals, human resource specialists and so many more.
