    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Reliance Standard Life Insurance (Philadelphia, PA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through careerbuilder.com. I had one phone interview, an initial in person interview, and a second interview with a few different managers. I was offered the job the next day after my second interview. The interview was fairly informal which I really appreciated. I don't think they asked me any behavioral questions, which was a really good thing because I hate those. They were very honest and candid about the difficulty of the position, which I appreciated. They didn't seem to lie to me about anything to paint a false picture.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to make a pie chart of my responsibilities in my current position at the time and compared it to a pie chart they made for this specific position. I thought this was incredibly helpful in giving me an idea of what exactly I'd be doing, and comparing it to what I already knew.   Answer Question

    IS Program Management Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Reliance Standard Life Insurance (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. About 3 weeks later I received an email from an HR rep asking to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. The interview was scheduled for a few days later.

    In the interview, the hiring manager stated that he was performing an initial high-level screening, and would thus limit the time I had to ask questions, as he wanted to keep the interview to no more than 25 minutes (he called me 5 minutes late, coincidentally). The hiring manager discussed the role and how it fit within the company, as well as goals for the position. The questions asked were fairly straight-forward and high level. The interview was more of a conversation rather than feeling like a highly scripted set of questions. As stated at the beginning of the call, I got to ask at most 2-3 questions.

    That was the last I ever heard from anyone at this company. I tried to follow up with both the hiring manager and the HR rep, but neither responded to any of my inquiries. Two months later and it's still radio-silence. The job is still posted on their website so I assume they have ruled me out and are continuing to look at candidates.
