Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Allstate in June 2017.

Interview

The HR was kind of not knowing what time to call. He gave me a time of 10:30 and gave me a call at 8:30. It was not a good experience. He checked some of the points and said we are not hiring because of a particular reason not because anything was missing in my resume.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Allstate.

    Interview

    applied at career fair, got a call soon after, had two phone interviews (one screening type, the other was technical) and also had to do a third recorded response interview through montage learning. Overall, the recruiter and interviewer i interacted with were very nice and professional. They were helpful and it seemed like it would have been a great environment to work in. From the career fair to when i ended up getting an offer after all the interviews was like a total time of like 4 weeks, so pretty fast compared to other companies. The first interview was going over your resume in depth, them explaining about their development teams. The second technical interview were mainly OOP, string manipulation, linked lists questions... really know your OOP and class/interface java stuff. Salary offered was impressive but i chose a internship closer to home.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Allstate.

    Interview

    Basic technical phone interview. Talked about coding practices and object oriented design. Also asked about my own technical experiences and what I'd do in various situations. It was pretty much a combination of technical and behavioral interview with plenty of questions. They didn't ask any sort of algorithm or data structure questions but instead focused on Java and also a database question.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Allstate in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted through email to do a phone screening that was automated. It was basically a prerecorded voice that was asking a question and you recorded your answer. The questions were really hard to hear, so I'd wear headphones at max volume (even then it was hard to hear and I missed the first question because of it). The questions were not hard and were basic questions.

    Interview

    There was one technical interview that I got after attending a career fair at my school. It was fairly easy. Mostly questions related to Java language. There were also a few Data structure questions i.e. explaining what stacks and queues were. And then there were also a few SQL questions, mostly related to how you would query for elements. Then next part of the process was a behavioral phone interview, where you recorded your voice to questions.

    Interview

    I applied at the career fair that was held at my university. I was then contacted for a on campus interview. First interview was technical and went over your resume. I was then contacted weeks later for a onsite interview. I got interviewed by two people the first one was technical and the second one was behavior. If you you want to do well on the interviews make sure you know databases, object oriented programming, and your data structures.
