    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    Met with CEO. He was the longest running CEO in Blue Cross history named Bill Marino, since retired.
    In this particular interview, he was the decision maker. Led to a wonderful opportunity.

    Interview Questions

    • What will you do to have the same success here against your previous company? Why should I hire you? What have you contributed to your firm in net profit and net membership since employed in New Jersey? Why change companies now? After 2 hours of grilling, I had an offer in writing about 4 hours following the interview, which began at 7 A.M.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    With all humility, I am a skilled negotiator. Perhaps that is why Bill hired me. I am well respected as a consumer advocate and have outstanding communication skills. I enjoyed our discussion as the time passed. He was the ultimate mentor. I was very lucky to even have the opportunity to negotiate with him as well as the recruiter.

    RN Pre Authorization Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Trenton, NJ
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (West Trenton, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted online applications for several Case Management Positions. Received a call from a recruiter to set up an interview in the West Trenton Office for the following week. Had a brief interview with the recruiter who told me what a fantastic company it was to work for, but didn't ask me a single question. Met with the prior authorization supervisor who explained what they were looking for and that judging by my resume I had all of the qualifications- but didn't ask me a single question!!

    I waited exactly a week before doing a follow up to see if the position was filled and left a message with no response. I called the following Monday and left a voice mail that was returned via an email stating the position was filled. I was a little devastated.

    Human Resource Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Milwaukee, WI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    A woman called me to interview in person. I arrived 15 minutes early for our scheduled meeting. The woman at the desk was extremely rude and confused as to who I was and who I was seeing. I waited 30 minutes after the scheduled interview to be seen. I had to leave due to schedule constraints without even interviewing. I followed up with the person who had initially contacted me stating that I had shown up and waited for a total of almost 45 minutes for our meeting. Was never contacted or followed up with from anyone within the company.
    On a side note- the office seemed extremely run down and the staff was very rude.
