    Social Media Communications Specialist Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Chapel Hill, NC) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I had a 3-step interview. Step one was a phone interview with talent acquisition. Step two was a phone interview with the hiring manager, and step three was an in-person interview with the hiring manager, the department director, and another manager from the department.

    For each step, they asked STAR questions, Situation, Task, Activity and Result. In other words, they would ask for a scenario where I had to resolve a conflict with a coworker or customer. I would answer by providing the situation, what was required of me, what I actually did, and the result of the situation. I actually prefer this kind of questioning as it gives a clear structure to the interview process and helps both the interviewer and interviewee focus on results-oriented questioning. Even if the company isn't using this method for interviewing, I would recommend using STAR to respond to their questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Please describe a time when you had a conflict with a coworker, and how you dealt with that situation?   Answer Question

    Communications Program Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Chapel Hill, NC) in November 2009.

    Interview

    BCBSNC does "target selection" interviews, which consist of a bunch of situational questions. Some folks stick to it, and others do not. I found the canned questions to be incredibly silly, but I appreciated the subsequent questions and conversation I had with my manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you had to make a difficult decision.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Yes. I negotiated. They came to me with an incredibly low offer. I turned it down, and they came back to ask me how much I needed. Ultimately, I got what I asked for.
