    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Allstate.

    You come in and they ask you about your insurance history and if you are licensed. If you are not licensed they most likely deny you the position because it takes time to get it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Allstate.

    Interview

    I applied online mid Jan, got an automated phone call interview, then schedule a personality test, AND THEN finally a 1:1 interview. The people interviewing me where REALLY nice, vibrant and young. They made Staar questions, and one role-play scenario which was so weird, bc it was not explained right. One of the interviewers walked me out and kept telling me that I did really great and shouldn't be nervous. I got the denial email next day saying "I was too overqualified" Great interview though!

    Information Security Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Allstate (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    All said and done, the interview process took about 3 months long. HR required a follow-up to understand next steps throughout the process. Numerous phone interviews were required, which was the best part of the process because you were talking with people you’d actually be working with. The people I talked to in this part of the process were great. The “final round” interview required an in person interview with 3 very high level executives. This took ~4 more weeks to schedule. I took the assumption that since I made it to the final round interview, the executives knew my experience and years of experience (more on that later). 24 hours before the final round interview, I was asked to adjust the time to accommodate a schedule change of one of the execs. Sure, not a problem. 5 hours before the interview I was told that one of the execs can no longer attend and therefore I would have to reschedule that interview with him. Considering it took 4 weeks to get on these guys calendar, I wasn’t thrilled about this, but made the best of it. Proceeded with interviewing 2/3, and from the moment I met the first executive, it became odd. I’ve been fortunate to have a lot of great experience in a short amount of time, making me not a 20 year old veteran in the industry. Some companies look at that as a positive and some do not. This Allstate exec couldn’t get past that I reminded him of his daughter, so much so that he made numerous appearance comments, which was completely unprofessional. Was he trying to break the ice and find commonality? Maybe, but how could he take me seriously when all he sees is his daughter who has an entry level position at Allstate? It was awful, and we maybe talked about my experience for 8 mins total. The second exec wasn’t nearly as terrible, but you could tell he struggled with interviewing a relatively young female in the security industry. When talking about my experience or answering the few behavioral questions I was asked, responses from both execs were always positive and encouraging, which led me to believe that regardless of appearance, sex, or age, everyone in the room could agree I had great experience for this role. I was contacted by HR 4 days later, stating I did not get this director job but would I consider a more junior level role. So i am qualified enough to do the work/job, but not at a senior level? How does that make any sense. I also asked her why I didn’t get the “senior level” role and she had no feedback to share. In my gut, I know it has everything to do with my age, sex, and appearance. Look at Allstate’s executives, they are mostly all men, with very little representation of women. So am I surprised? No. I turned down considering the lower level position. The culture is not progressive enough for me. Females primarily fill admin and HR roles, as I only met one fairly senior (VP) level female in the security org. This is a culture that also supports no flexibility. Working from home wasn’t an option yet the commute would take forever. Pay range wasn’t terrible, but not where I’ve seen other similar positions. Good luck Allstate finding top tier security talent with this type of culture.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Allstate (Bothell, WA).

    Interview

    Participated in a recorded (i.e. not with a live person) screening phone interview that asked generic HR questions and one question about a project I had recently completed. Then, there was a technical phone screen with the jelly beans question and a case study in addition to non-technical questions relating to programming background. Finally, there was an onsite consisting of three interviews--behavioral, coding, and a data science case study--in addition to an applicant-led presentation.

    Interview Questions

    • If you have a bag of jelly beans with a large number of two different colors, whats the minimum you need to pick out to guarantee that you have at least 2 of the same color? Then the question in the general case.   1 Answer
    • Generic questions about behavior and how you work. Project management philosophies, etc. Why Allstate?   Answer Question
    • Coding challenges that focus on understanding very basic recursive functions, floating point numbers rounding (e.g. exact 1/2 vs. inexact 1/3), coding a very simple KNN algorithm, and writing a SQL query which involved aggregating and joining tables.   Answer Question
    • The case study presents real data and they ask questions about how you would approach the modeling process. Understand imbalanced class classification, model evaluation, cross validation, and logistic regression, and perhaps more sophisticated techniques.   Answer Question
