    Tech Writer Interview

    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.

    Help Desk Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California (El Dorado Hills, CA).

    Interview

    First you go through one of their recruiter and it's the basic questions to see if you qualify. If you do you meet with a manager and lead over the phone and they go through their questions that are a bit more detailed. After that I don't know what happens since no one gets back to you even by email. So I'm sure I didn't get the job, but it would be nice to get a notification of that from one of the 4 people you deal with through the process.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blue Shield Of California (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview with recruiter, a phone interview with Director. Director stated I would be hearing from HR with next step process and that was two weeks ago and I have not heard anything as of yet. I realize the average hiring time frame is two to four weeks, but this seems like a critical position and due to staffing issues and moral I would think it would be a priority.
