    Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, AL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Protective Life (Birmingham, AL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Complete waste of time. I had 5 different phone conversations before being flown into Birmingham, AL for the face-to-face interviews with 6 different individuals. Was told a few days later the feedback was positive and would be contacted on a Friday with an update. Friday came and went with no contact so I had to reach out to the recruiter two days later who sent me a canned email in another two days that was a thanks but no thanks response. SMH! They were too cheap to go with an external candidate who could actually do the job at hand. Ridiculous…

    Account Transfer Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Protective Life (Birmingham, AL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was held in multiple stages on the same day. The first session was with a operations analyst who described to me the responsibilities and function of the job. I could also freely ask any questions at the time. It seemed more of a conversation than a formal interview. The second session was with two other account transfer specialists who were veterans of the department. This was the bread and butter of the interview process where typical questions were asked of me (background experience, knowledge of industry, work ethic, strengths, weaknesses). No curve balls were thrown. I was then told I would be contacted shortly and that my offer would be determined based on a voting system between everyone who interviewed me.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Protective Life (Birmingham, AL).

    Interview

    Had a 20 min phone screening first. Then around a month later they gave me an on site interview. For the phone screening it was just simple housekeeping questions. Then for the on site interview they really wanted to find out more about me and my experiences. They also required me to take an aptitude test at the end. Entire interview lasted around 2 hours. It was a really good experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Not too bad of an interview, they just went through my entire resume and asked questions about each section.   Answer Question
