    Tech Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Dorado Hills, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California (El Dorado Hills, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by an in-house recruiter. He asked what my salary requirements were then arranged a phone/WebEx interview with the department lead.

    She asked the usual position-related questions and had me complete an editing test, which I aced. It was something a high school student could have easily done...

    She stated that she would recommend me to her manager. A couple of weeks later I interviewed with him.

    Immediately, red flags started popping up. He was 15 minutes late. He knew I had a disability that makes walking difficult (I divulged this to the lead) but that didn't stop him from conducting the interview in a building 200 yards from the visitors' reception.

    It was extremely hot that day, so I was suffering when we got to the conference room where one other person was waiting. That person introduced himself then sat silently doodling in his notebook the entire interview.

    The manager asked many inappropriate questions for an interview with a mid-career professional. Questions such as: Would you have trouble getting to work on time? We are eliminating the work from home benefit; would this be a problem for you? How would your high school English teacher describe you? Were you really self-employed?

    A week after the interview I followed up with the recruiter who said no decision had been made.

    Needless to say, based on this experience and other reviews on GlassDoor, I'm glad I never heard back. I'd avoid this place unless you truly have no other option.

    Blue Shield Emerging Leaders Program Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California (San Francisco, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The first round was with the recruiter, the second was in person. We weren't provided with much time to ask questions to interviewers - it was nearly 100% question after question after question. I would have loved to learn more about the work that each of the interviewers did, and hear about their experiences. But the questions were straightforward, and decisions were made quickly. Nice experience overall.

    Interview

    There was a phone screen with a university recruiter. Then two separate phone interviews with members of the whole team. Standard interview questions.
