    I worked at Wellmark full-time (Less than a year)


    Good company and culture. Flexible environment


    Sometimes people/departments get stuck in the mindset of "this is how we have always done it"

    Advice to Management

    Review senior management qualifications. Seems sometimes senior positions are awarded to people based on years of service vs. experience.

    Administrative Assistant III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Moines, IA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Wellmark (Des Moines, IA) in April 2015.


    I like the idea of a secure environment; however, I did not appreciate the final hiring decisions being left up to peer coworkers and not management. The hiring director was very impressed with my background, skill set and experience. The two managers also seemed to be pleased with the experience I was bringing to the department. The other foot dropped when I was informed that I had one more interview, with three additional administrative staff members. So to sum it all up, I interviewed with five (5) people and was tested for about 45 minutes in the same day. Two weeks later, I found out that the administrative staff didn't feel I was a good fit for the team. Needless to say, I was little disappointed about the entire process. My take away from that experience was, perhaps that was not the job for me.
