    6 interviews over 1 day. Interviewed by people at or above the level of the position. No major surprises. Overall I was very unimpressed with the lack of sophistication of the staff. Some were paranoid, others had no drive to advance.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Director, Underwriting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Highmark (Pittsburgh, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Excruciatingly slow process with minimal communication from HR throughout.
    Posted for position around Labor Day, heard nothing until mid October when they scheduled phone interviews for November.

    Got a note from recruiter around Thanksgiving that they wanted to bring (fly) me in for interview .

    Then absolute silence until late January, 2 months after last contact. They flew me in to HQ in early February for about 5 hours of nonstop revolving interviews, most of which had insufficient time for the interviewers to ask their "assigned" questions and allow me any meaningful time to ask questions about the department or the company.

    As others noted, they require you to front hotel & local ride service expenses for later reimbursement that took another 30 days!

    No offer yet, but wouldn't accept after this experience coupled with other recent poor reviews herein.

    Update: as of 5/1/17, 3 months after in-person interview & 8 months after initially posting, got a rejection letter, but already started a new job with better opportunities & prospects!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Highmark (Pittsburgh, PA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    This was not really an interview as much as it was a brief phone call, because all she was concerned about was my salary requirement. Unless you are unemployed don't bother applying here because they are only concerned with paying you as little as possible.

    Regulatory Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Harrisburg, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Highmark (Harrisburg, PA).

    Interview

    Easy. Manager already had most of the information about me from the resume I submitted. The interview was more about meeting the candidate and qualifying the cultural fit. There was some discussion about specific technology skills and research software/applications/subscriptions experience level. There was a post interview walk around the department, meeting some of the future co-workers. I was informed in the interview that they had not layed off employees in 10 years. Unfortunately, I believed that. Seven months later there was a company wide layoff; I made it through the first cut, but not the subsequent cut.
