I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama full-time (More than 10 years)
This company has some of the best benefits around as far as retirement, pension, 401k, health insurance, and tuition reimbursement.
Things get taken away or shifted around often. When I first started out I was looking at retiring in 25 years, then they changed how that worked and it moved up to 32, then it changed again and I would have been there 42 years before I could retire.
It's also hard to move up the ladder within the company unless you have a degree. A lot of higher job positions require a degree... It doesn't matter what your degree is in, they just want to know you paid a lot of money for a piece of paper.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama (Birmingham, AL) in March 2017.
I applied for the CSR Trainee position in Feb 2017. About 24 hours later I was contacted by a recruiter to take an online skills assessment. After taking the assessment which took about an hour, a recruiter contacted me about two weeks later requesting a phone interview. About a week later I had a phone interview which lasted about 20 minutes. After the phone interview about 3 weeks passed and I was then emailed again to set up a face to face interview. After the final interview a couple of weeks passed and I was contacted by the recruiter for permission to perform a background check. It took a week for the background check to come back and finally I was scheduled to take a drug test. The same week the drug test came back I was officially offered the job.
