    I believe this has been left on the wrong company profile as we are Blue Cross for Pets which is an animal charity based in the UK.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I completed an automated phone interview and was then emailed a link to complete a series of questions related to finding the right information and best ways to reply to questions and such. I then received and email to pick a time for an office interview. There were several other already there when I arrived and the room I was pulled into had like 12+tables set up and other supervisors were conducting interviews at the same time. Somewhat difficult to concentrate when so much chatter is around you but I guess its a good indication of the job itself in that respect. It's a new location they were hiring for. Received a call from HR 3 days later with a contingent offer for the position. Conducted my drug test the following day. Slight hiccup with a background check and a former job I had that was no longer in business for contact.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota.

    Interview

    Initially applied online, received an email a few days later for a phone interview. Completed the phone interview-- it was extremely odd; it was impersonal, and automated. I thought i bombed the interview but then received an email to complete an online simulation and answer various personality questions.

    I thought i did well with to simulation and questions but guess not. Its been some time and I'm assuming I wasn't a right fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The first step was to complete Video Montage containing mainly behavioral questions involving your interests, education, and team-management skills. After completing this step, a HR representative will direct you to a hiring manager for a phone interview. The phone interview mainly contains behavioral questions and a few logic questions. They also ask you a lot of what your interests are and what you hope to do. My hiring manager was very much focused on web development and asked many questions regarding that area of field. Some include: What is your favorite app/website and why? If you were to create an app, what would it be? The interviewer also asked some Javascript questions. However, I went in unprepared because the job description did not mention anything regarding web development. Overall, the process was done in a good manner, but the job descriptions could be clearer.The major con was that they never told me my application status and if I was rejected or not, even after trying to get in touch multiple times. It was a positive experience for me however.

    Software Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota (Eagan, MN) in December 2015.

    Interview

    There was a phone screen by HR, followed by two in person interviews. The first in person interview went well, typical behavioral questions and resume/experience questions. My background was an almost perfect fit for the job. I had all of the required items and most of the preferred items. I was told the next interview would be a technical one. However, that was untrue. The second in person interview was a further scrutiny of my background by additional people. They appeared not to believe what I had on my resume and were very skeptical of what I told them. I have no idea why as it was all truthful and accurate. There were no technical questions asked so I never had the opportunity to display my technical knowledge.
