    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Allstate (Champaign, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was invited to a face to face interview with college recruiters after a college career fair. The interview was pretty standard object oriented programming questions. I felt it went well. They said I would have a phone interview with HR the next week and then hear back within 2 weeks. Both of those statements turned out to be lies. I finally was rejected 2 and a half months later.

    Interview Questions

    • What are the 4 pillars of object oriented programming? How do you access a table in SQL?   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Allstate (Hudson, OH) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewers did not seem prepared. The first interviewer read from a packet and seemed to lack confidence. The second was a very open-ended conversation, but she said she couldn't tell me much about my expected responsibilities or what the department looked for in a candidate because they were inexperienced in the interview process, and had never before hired an intern. I quickly ran out of questions. The overall experience was awkward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Allstate (Northbrook, IL) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Initial communication was with an officer in my area, through him the position became available and I was given a link to apply online by a recruiter. I emailed several times with her before conducting a phone-screen interview. I made clear my interview requirements, which needed to be after the school semester was over, and Allstate was more than accommodating. On my interview day I was taken to my area by the intern lead where I interviewed with 5 senior-level directors in my department to determine which team would provide the best mutual fit.

    Interview Questions

    • My interviews served less of a case study and more of "tell me about yourself" conversations to determine best fit. The most difficult part was thinking on the spot to tie my experiences into the different teams whose responsibilities were unknown to me prior.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation as this was the position I was seeking

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Allstate (Menlo Park, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Fair warning, this will be quite long, but it is packed with details that will help. I promise.

    I sent in my resume and cover letter after hearing about the position on a posting board. I received a short 15 minute phone call with a recruiter from the Illinois offices. After the initial screening, she was my main contact person to set me up for the subsequent interviews. As you move through the interview process, expect a few calls and emails from her as she preps you can schedules your interviews.

    I believe my third interview was with my would-be team leader, and it was pretty straightforward. The main thing they wanted to check was that I was interested in the research position and not the statistics position (since there were two positions available at the time and they needed a researcher). After that, there were a few behavioral questions that were asked relating to teamwork and strengths on a team.

    [Side note: I had correctly applied to the statistics position, but somehow my application was filtered into the research position entries. They tried to convince me otherwise. The mix-up did work in my favor, but this might also say something about organization.]

    My fourth interview was a skype call with two individuals working at the internship location. The first individual mainly covered my previous experiences and asked questions to get a better read on my personality. The second individual asked me more technical questions related to statistics, in case they wanted to use my skills in stats as a follow-up to the research work. The main technical question from that interview is below.

    I did note that they made sure to call my listed references. Make sure your references are solid and can really vouch for your work, personality, and work ethic.

    If all goes well, you'll be contacted by another recruiter from the main office who will be your new contact person to get you set up to start. This will usually cover salary negotiations, start date, and completion of any remaining paperwork / drug screening. Once this step is done, just get ready for your first day. Prepare for a great learning experience.

    The entire process took about... 2 months from initial application to getting all set to start. Applied at the beginning of April. Didn't hear back until beginning of May (but I think I applied really early in their application acceptance period). Once the ball got rolling in May, it was an interview a week until acceptance and paperwork wrap up at the beginning of June.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you know what kind of data to use when performing statistical analyses? (Can't remember the exact wording, but it was essentially this.)   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The recruiter advised me not to negotiate because the offer technically comes off the table (and they can still effectively reject you). I had no qualms with just flat out accepting their offer, though, because it ended up being higher than anticipated. And they ended up paying me through some requested vacation days.
