    Litigation Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Yonkers, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Allstate (Yonkers, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, got an email a few days later stating they want to schedule an interview. Went to the interview one week later, met with two lead counsel attorneys. They were friendly.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about my employment history, reasons why I left my previous positions. Asked if I liked the work I do, do I plan on going to law school. What case load am I used to. At the end of the interview they switched to the STAR method questioning, which they made clear were questions from corporate and had to ask them, but honestly they didn't really care for the questions or my answers. They found out what they really wanted about me through their own questioning.   Answer Question

    Casualty Claims Adjuster Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Procurement Lead Interview

    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.
