    Pros

    IT salaries are good; flexible work schedules are available, including full and part time telecommuting. Management in IT is pretty good.

    Cons

    "Reduction in Staff" process will eliminate 90% of the IT jobs by 2019, which means there isn't much opportunity for current IT employees or perspective employees.

    Advice to Management

    Think again about the impact of eliminating so many IT jobs.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I completed an automated phone interview and was then emailed a link to complete a series of questions related to finding the right information and best ways to reply to questions and such. I then received and email to pick a time for an office interview. There were several other already there when I arrived and the room I was pulled into had like 12+tables set up and other supervisors were conducting interviews at the same time. Somewhat difficult to concentrate when so much chatter is around you but I guess its a good indication of the job itself in that respect. It's a new location they were hiring for. Received a call from HR 3 days later with a contingent offer for the position. Conducted my drug test the following day. Slight hiccup with a background check and a former job I had that was no longer in business for contact.
