    Staff Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Standard (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    Phone interview that never happened. I was selected to do a phone interview with the Standard's Sr Talent Acquisition Partner. After scheduling a time slot I received an email confirming my interview. The interview never happened. I kept my schedule open for an additional 45 minutes after the interview time slot but never received a call. I emailed the interviewer to see if anything had come up but have received no response.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at The Standard.

    On campus interview. Two interviewers are both very nice. Basically they just went through the resume and asked some behavioral questions. It lasted about 30 minutes. They were taking notes while interviewing me.

    Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Standard.

    Interview

    Their recruiter set up a phone screen, and then stood me up. He later contacted me, without apologizing, and asked to reschedule on the weekend. I already had plans, but told him I could do it any time the next week. He never responded. Very unprofessional.

    Call Center Representative I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at The Standard (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Very unprofessional! Strung me along for months for two different positions. When you first apply, they'll set up a phone interview a couple days later, but a long waiting period for the in-person interview. When the in-person came, interviewers seemed uninterested/going-thru-the-motions but made it seem as if you're going to be a shoe-in. Still haven't got official word about the latest position I went for, even though the recruiter said she'll get back to me.

    Awful communicators!

    Case Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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

    Benefits Claims Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lynchburg, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Standard (Lynchburg, VA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    This company boots about how they are all about the community and helping it's customers. Well this company is a big joke. They make you jump through hoops to get an in person interview. You get all dressed up because it states business professional and the interviewer is in business casual dress wear. Then it states to bring 2 copies of your resume and the interviewer never even asked for it. Then they say you need to make sure your contact information formation is correct because we will be calling you with a job offer. Well, you sit around and wait and wait. The finally you get an email stating you are now no longer being considered for the position.
