    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Standard.

    Interview

    I was contacted in an appropriate time frame; approx. five to seven days of applying for the role.

    Case Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Standard.

    Interview

    Had to go through 4 separate rounds of interviews. By the end of it I had interviewed with 6 different people (including the recruiter). Questions were insanely difficult in and of themselves not to mention trying to answer them in the required format they wanted. They are the behavioral based questions, but trust and believe they are not the typical or "common" ones you will find on google. I'm a relatively educated and well spoken person, and I really struggled to answer their questions appropriately. Hands down the most difficult interview I've had so far. I prepared for hours, and yet I was incredibly unprepared. Good luck.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you used data and logic to present information in order to persuade an individual on a difficult subject?

      (Keep in mind you cannot just answer the question the way it comes to you, you have to answer using their 5-point format)   Answer Question
