I have been working at Wellmark full-time (More than a year)
The company looks out for its employees and values the work/life balance philosophy. The benefits are very good, and the working conditions could not be nicer. The company has a Well for Life Center (gym) that is one of the best gyms in Des Moines, and there are programs for everyone there. The CEO of the company is very much in tune with what's going on within the company, and he often addresses employee concerns in newsletters and email message.
In all my years in the workforce, I can say I've never worked for a company where there were fewer cons. The company values their talent.
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.
