    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GetInsured.

    Interview

    HR manager found my resume online, the following process was very fast. I have received the phone call and the next interview was scheduled next day. People were very friendly, HR manager showed the office space and provided detailed explanations about the corporate culture, work environment, benefits and so on.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing special. The larger part of the questions required specific examples. Get ready to tell PSR (problem-solution-result) stories. Probably one tricky question was - how do you start the project if you know nothing about the product.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GetInsured (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    Very rushed onsite interview, no time to ask questions. During one of them, the interviewer didn't allow me time to clarify his questions and even left the room during one of the questions. I was asked one specific question about Hibernate's by two different interviewers, so it must be very important to them. If you've just never dealt with this particular issue before, and you're familiar with general Hibernate behavior, it would not be possible to answer this question in the way they expected.

    Overall the interview wasn't difficult, it just appeared that they wanted to hear specific answers. There wasn't much "problem solving" during the interview, I felt it was more of a test of whether you're experienced in these specific topics.

    Interview Questions

    • Runtime behavior of Java generics - this one is probably one of the more challenging questions and deals with issues that's not widely encountered in typical enterprise applications.   Answer Question

    Office Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GetInsured (Mountain View, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn and I responded to set up a time to interview. I went in to the office for the full interview and things went really well. Everyone I talked to seemed really great and excited about the possibility of working together. Thirty minutes later I received an email from the recruiter saying they wanted to move forward and would send the offer letter in the next few days; he just needed my references. I gave them contact information for 3 different references. My references were all called but without warning so they missed their calls. When they tried to call the people at GetInsured back their mailbox was full and couldn't leave a message. One of my references kept calling the recruiters back and finally got through--this reference told me that the call went well. I did not hear anything from the recruiter I worked with for more than a week. Then he said he was just waiting on one last signature but it would be approved the next day. When it was finally approved and the offer was ready the recruiter only wanted to go over the offer on the phone. He missed me on the phone once (he called during working hours so I was at my current job) but I called and emailed twice with multiple days and times that I was available. I never heard back and I never saw a physical offer letter.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview

    Applied thru recruiter..overall process took less than a week.
    Had phone screening and then followed by in-person interview.
    when I walked in, the whole office space looks like a market, people walking around and no way you feel like you are in a profession work space. People chatting around. People I met are ok, very dis organized and lack of enthusiasm about their own work. My first impression was should I continue or just cut the process short so I will have my 2 hours back. Stay away from interviewing if you don't want to wast any time.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GetInsured in October 2013.

    Interview

    After a phone screen, I came into the office for 4 in-person interviews. I was impressed by how packed the office was -- it was clear that they were quickly outgrowing their space.
    I was extremely disappointed with my experience because GetInsured gave me a verbal offer, then after a few days refused to put the offer in writing and withdrew it altogether.
