    Medical Informatics Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California (San Francisco, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process from recruiter phone screen to receiving an offer took about 7 - 9 weeks. I applied online and I was able to hear back from the recruiter within 3 weeks.

    The initial phone interview was performed by the recruiter. He asked the general questions such as why are you in the market, what is your background and clarifications of my resume etc.
    Second interview was the phone screen by the hiring manager. Just like the initial recruiter phone screen, the process took about 30 minutes.
    Third interview was on-site. I had 5 rounds of interview (not just people from the hiring team). Since the position I applied for is an intermediate position, interviewers asked around my interest on this job, my past experiences, behavior questions etc.
    A week after the group panel interview I received my offer letter in writing (via email).

    Program Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California.

    Interview

    Applying with BSC was a really horrible and strange experience. Long story short I was basically teased along for 6 months with phone interviews and numerous scheduled and then canceled in person interviews only to be left hanging with no follow up or closure.
    I applied to the position and heard back from the recruiter within two days. Had a phone screening the following week and then a phone interview with the hiring manager two weeks after that. Then I was scheduled for a face to face interview with the hiring manager. I was notified the morning of the interview that it was cancelled because the hiring manager was out sick. The interview was rescheduled for the beginning of the following week.
    I was pulling into the parking lot of their office for the rescheduled interview and I was about 45 mins early. I received a call that the interview was cancelled again and this time the hiring manager was out on leave. I was advised by the recruiter that I would get a call when the hiring manager was back to reschedule the interview.
    I didn’t hear anything from anyone for 6 weeks despite sending a few follow up emails and calls. I had given up on the position when I received a text message on a Friday evening at 5:00PM from a different recruiter asking if I could interview over the phone with a different hiring manager in 30 mins. I interviewed with this other person and then didn’t hear anything again for two weeks. About three weeks later I was told they wanted to set up an in person interview with me with both of the hiring managers I had interviewed with. I scheduled the interview and then that interview was cancelled the night before it was scheduled to occur. I was told it would be rescheduled. I have not heard anything since. That was almost two months ago.
