    Pros

    Excellent place to work. Many long-term employees here because the benefits are good, the people are great, etc.

    Cons

    Due to the competitiveness in the health insurance sector they expect much of you here. They're always asking more.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Carefirst Blue Cross Blue Shield in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was approached by two recruiters for two different departments at CareFirst in the same week. I had an initial telephone screening with both. Due to internal delays, I only interviewed with one of the departments. My first day of interviews consisted of 2 one-hour meetings with the team, and two 30 minute interviews with the hiring manager, and the department VP. I was invited back the following week for additional interviews. In the second round, I met with the other Project Manager in the department, and with one of the managers for the business areas that I would be supporting. I also had a follow-up with the hiring manager. I was offered the position two days later.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were particularly unexpected. The team asked questions from a script. There was definitely an expectation that I would be able to speak extensively about the health insurance industry. There were not a lot of questions about my project management background.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was informed up-front that the offer I was being made was beyond the original budget for the position, and therefore I wouldn't be able to negotiate. The offer was exactly the same salary as I was making before, with a ~5% signing bonus as compensation for being interviewed 3 weeks after the cutoff for the annual performance bonus.
