    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Newark, NJ) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Called by HR person who asked me about my background and how much I made annually. I answered with my salary which may have put me at a disadvantage a bit. Two interviews: 1) Hiring manager 2) Department head. Called back in about 2-3 days after second interview with department head and was "unofficially" offered the position but I didn't accept due to low salary.

    Interview Questions

    • Was given some ethical/scenario questions by department head but the interview was mostly informal.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Salary not worth leaving current position. I would of accepted if I wasn't already employed.

    IT Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Newark, NJ) in February 2017.

    Interview

    First you get a call from a clueless HR type. You go through your resume. Then you're invited in. The people I spoke to were the most arrogant discourteous people who either were late or didn't keep their appointment time at all. Not at all impressed coming from a company who's a market leader.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you understand what you will be doing (serious- this from HR)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email to schedule a phone interview within a 3-4 weeks. Spoke with an HR hiring manager for initial vetting for 30-4 0min, and afterwards was told I seemed like a good fit, and they'd like me to come in for an in-person interview. The in person interview was scheduled as a full-day interview, with two 1hr meetings with two different managers within the department, followed by a 3 hour case study. The case study consisted of 2 parts, the first part which was supposed to take about 2 hours, and the second part 1 hour. A good knowledge of Microsoft Excel & Visio was helpful for the case studies. After the full-day interview, I was sent a link to complete a critical & analytical thinking assessment from my own computer, which was to take 30-45min. After 2-3 days, I got a followup from HR saying that I had scored well on the case study and that the team would like me to come in for a final round of interviews. This time around, I met with the department director and the manager I would be reporting to, followed by a meeting with the HR hiring manager. The next morning I received a call from HR with a verbal offer.
