Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California (San Francisco, CA) in Dec 2022

Interview

Zoom focused and behavioral questions. Panel discussion. Was presented as a finalist and was told "not to fret - and would hear back" by a specific date for next steps. The date came and went. I tried twice to contact the hiring manager over two weeks. No response. I found the posting deactivated and checked in with the recruiter to find the position had been filled. Many apologies and excuses given. No regard for the applicant.

Interview Questions
  • Typical scenario interview. How would you? What would you? All based on their competency model.

Interview

Great experience. Interviewer was very clear and candid about expectations and responsibilities of the role, and was also willing to share the prior manager's growth path, successes and challenges while in the same role. Office location and role's in-office preference made it not a good fit for me personally.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California

Interview

Phone screen with Recruiter followed by 30 min and 45 min interviews with HR team. Behavioral interview questions - overall good questions but no conversational discussions. Was assured I was doing well - 6 interview rounds and 4 weeks later: nothing. Sent email's to the recruiter and hiring manager and no replies. 100% ghosting. There's a reason the jobs are posted for an unusually long time - immature HR and T/A team communication process.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California (San Francisco, CA) in Sep 2022

Interview

Interviewers treated me somewhat respectfully but I never heard back from them despite them saying I did great with the interview and despite my follow-up email to the hiring manager. They seem to not have a recruiter as the hiring manager got back to me for my application. Huge disappointment.

Interview Questions
  • About my current role, how to secure systems, threat modeling.
