Can be too political
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wellmark (Des Moines, IA).
Took about a month after applying before they contacted me. First it was a phone screen with HR. The recruiter was very professional and I felt we had a good conversation. I was invited to come in for a panel interview 2-3 weeks later. First I met with the same HR recruiter (though this time in person) and she proceeded to ask me all of the same questions again. She was comparing my answers from 3 weeks prior with my answers on that day...which was odd, but I'm sure they have a strategy for doing that. She asked me twice why I wanted to work there, pressing the 2nd time, "I know I already asked you this, but can you again tell me why you want to work here?" (I mean -- should I NOT want to work there?? I gave her the same, detailed response!)
Then 3 co-workers came in to interview me. The supervisor of the position I was interviewing for was supposed to be there but they were ill, so I never got to meet them (which I felt was unfair). The interview was about an hour and they asked some good questions. Guess what? They asked me why I wanted to work there! I got to answer that question 3 times that day!
I could tell 1 person didn't like me but the other 2 did...I'm guessing it all came down to personality because I was overqualified for the job to be honest.
