    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Allstate (Charlotte, NC) in June 2017.

    Interview

    HR recruiters do not inform you of progress along the way in their interview process. When you try to reach out to your recruiter, you get no response. Then when asking about salary requirements to better understand if you are qualified, there is no response.

    After setting up an interview, they change it the day of from phone to in person, never taking into account you actually may be working. Had to submit a writing sample, and waited....no response from recruiter to confirm they received my writing sample. Received the standard email response, you were not selected to go forward.

    Casualty Claims Adjuster Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    They use the STAR interview process. The interview was alright. It seemed, forced on their end. There were 3 interviewing me; around a table. They didn't seem to want to be there. They asked the usual STAR type questions. Tell me a time...how would handle, etc. The interview started with some office style banter of a a story; they're so busy, weren't planning on doing an interview, usual person that conducts interviews is out.
    I almost felt like telling them; I didn't schedule the interview, way to make me feel welcome and I value my time, please stop wasting it.
    I left knowing I would not be extended an offer.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Allstate (Brooklyn, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    1.) Apply for a job in Brooklyn someone from Chicago scheduled a phone interview, past that.
    2) gotta take a damn test after passed that.
    3) went to downtown Brooklyn for the in person interview.

    Persons who suppose to do the interview wasn't there, I was interviewed by 2 kids fresh out of school of something. Interveiw went by well untill at the end they made me do phone role play. That completely messed me up. First of all the phone volume was too low so i was like "can you repeat that one more time" , 'What", "say it one more time please" the whole time on the role play.

    this is a huge waste of time they got like 9 applicants for one opening and they said they got another 9 next week, ridiculous.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Submitted online application. Was contacted by HR for phone screen. Then video interview scheduled with hiring manager. Was a complete waste of time and HR did not respond to my questions. Prior to the interview I had already been rejected for the role according to the applicant tracking system. One of the interviewers did not show up. The hiring manager was not able to use the video technology so it turned into a phone interview. HR did not respond to my questions as to why I was being interviewed after being rejected. The original role disappeared from job postings. Overall a very poor candidate experience. They need to significantly improve candidate experience if they expect to hire top talent.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Allstate in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted via LinkedIn messenger about participating in a phone interview, approximately three weeks after submitting my application. I replied back to furnish my availability as requested. A week later, when I had not heard anything, I sent a follow-up message. I was told the RSM was out sick and someone would be reaching out in the next few days.

    Two weeks later, when I had not been contacted yet, I sent another follow-up note to say I was still interested in the position and I was waiting to be scheduled for a phone screen. Three full business days later, I still have not received a reply.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Allstate.

    Interview

    Very poor and unprofessional.
    They found me on Linkedin and sent me a job position and I was interested. I talked to the HR guy and then no reply for a week. Then he made me talk to a team member. The interview went well but I got feedback that they would like to consider me for another position which was very junior. I talked to another HR person and she disappeared for 2 weeks after that. Then I heard from them that they already filled the role.

    Very poor and wasted my time.
