    Interview

    worked with HR, met only with my boss and coworkers in person; not too much but actually very insightful in terms of what the group is like. I think it was a good prep for what it's like to work with the group. Hiring process can take a while, which isn't too much of a problem but could be for others trying to plan.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (Boston, MA) in May 2017.

    Stages: phone interview with HR, phone interview with Hiring Manager, in-person interviews with the Hiring Manager and the rest of the team. It was a fantastic experience. The people I met with were approachable and made me feel very comfortable during our conversations. I felt valued during the whole process. No traditional questions or structured interviews. I really appreciate the fact that they were very interested in learning about me and how we could work together to accomplish the company's goal.

    Director Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (Boston, MA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    What a joke. The recruiter I dealt with was a complete flake. It would take her days to respond to an email even though I would respond within minutes of receiving hers. She blew me off twice when she had scheduled times and never once apologized. Today, she was only 20 minutes late calling for the screener. She obviously did not understand the role and did not thoroughly review my resume beforehand. The kicker? The comp plan is about 20% below market rates. What a joke.

    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (Boston, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR. I was interested in the job so we set up a screening call within a few days. He didn't know much about the job but was very friendly and enthusiastic about the organization. About a month later I interviewed with the hiring manager and two other people. People were friendly. Mix of skill-based and situational questions. Seems like a very risk-averse organization where things move slowly, which surprised me because they portray themselves as innovative. The hiring manager told me I'd hear back in a week or two. I sent a personalized thank you note to each person I met with. They completely dropped the ball and forgot to call me back! Eventually I figured they selected another candidate but I was disappointed they didn't bother to close the loop after several hours of meetings. I finally contacted the HR person; he was very apologetic that they forgot to follow up because they have so much going on! Obviously their process needs improvement.

    Behavioral based questions. There are questions about technical skills, communication ability and leadership experience. Often focus on actuarial projects, exam progress and personality. The on site interview started at around 9 and last for the whole day. The building is located in the heart of Boston. There's a casual lunch interview with the actuarial buddy. I enjoyed the interview a lot.
