    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Allstate.

    Interview

    Applied through my University job board. Had to go to a pre-interview session. Everyone is really nice at the pre-interview session, but completely different at the interview themselves. They show no emotion so don't come expecting friendliness. Unfortunately, my interviewers took everything I said including my examples face-value and told me that based off my background and experience I was not going to be interested in the position. However, that was false. I answered all their questions (behavioral questions with one challenge question) flawlessly, but felt like they were trying to find reasons not to hire me. Perhaps, because they already had someone in mind.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Allstate (Champaign, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Cordial, relaxed . 2 interviewers who mixed conversation with behavior questions. There was a mini case they gave you 15 minutes or so to prepare which included five choices of issues affecting the insurance industry, and you have to pick and elaborate on three of them. Overall it seemed that they were trying to persuade me as much as I was trying to sell myself to them.

    Interview

    Applied online, and got a phone interview two weeks later. The person I spoke to was very kind, and told me about them self and about the job before getting into the interview questions. If you were well-prepared and read the job description, interview was very straight-forward. About two and a half weeks later I got an in-person 4 hour interview, with several interviewers, panel-style. Every interviewer was very pleasant to talk to. Some tough questions were asked, but I think I managed to end each conversation on a positive note.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Allstate (Irving, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    After applying, I was contacted to set up a phone interview. Interviewed by two analysts. Then brought in for a 3-stage interview: first with 2 analysts, second with 2 managers, lastly with a senior manager. During the interview, I was asked to analyze some financial reports: very straight-forward. After the in-person interview, I was told I would be contacted the following week. The recruiter, however, never reached out to me. After several emails and phone calls, I still received no contact from her. It is unfortunate that the last stage of the process was left up to the recruiter. Everyone that I had interacted with, from the initial person in the main office who set up the interviews to all the people I met and interviewed with, were very helpful and pleasant. I completely understand if a decision had not been made, but a reply to the initial email or a return call explaining that would have sufficed. Unfortunately, I received neither.

The on-site interview was in Irving, and there was a group of financial team to interview with me. They asked about behavior and situation questions. In final, the managers gave me a sales paper and asked me to interpret.

    I met with 2 or 3 different people. They then gave you an opportunity to shadow someone who has been in the position for a year or so. It was nice to know what you would expect if you recieved an offer.
