What people are saying about Highmark Health

Human Resources



Training Coordinator / Systems Support Administrator

Hello! I interviewed with highmark health for an Associate Release Manager role. Right after the interview the hiring manager called me and offered me the job and said I’ll hear from the recruiter shortly with all the paperwork. After a week went by, nothing. I finally heard from the recruiter and they said they are on a hiring freeze and we’re unable to hire me because it wasn’t in the budget. I’m wondering if anyone can give me advice on how to gain employment with Highmark or it’s affiliates.

        Benefits but you pay for them. Ability to be remote but at what cost?


        Bad training and even worse dedicated unit training. They set you up to fail by not providing proper assistance while on phones- any questions you need answers to while you are new -go unanswered. Managers and supervisors are full of themselves and on a power trip. Horrible high stress place to work. Will not work with your schedule or life events- single moms need not apply. Completely unsupportive environment in every way. You can’t take anytime off for months and when you can, you’ll have to fight for a day that someone else didn’t take off before you. Since you’re new you are bottom of the barrel. They prefer you have no life. Ceo needs to revamp entire training model. I’d love to help with that because it’s a mess.

      Project Manager

      Hey everyone, Just needed to vent a bit about this job hunt. It's been a wild ride, to say the least. Lately, it feels like I'm sending my applications into a black hole, and I'm not alone in this, am I? Interviews seem to be the rarest gems, and job postings seem to disappear as soon as I hit 'apply.' Anyway, I'd love to hear your experiences. What's been your biggest frustration as a job seeker? How do you stay motivated in this crazy journey? Any words of wisdom or empathy to share?


      Marketing Manager

      What are people’s thoughts on those personality and logic tests some companies made you do as part of the hiring process? I frankly don’t like them. I understand if the test is for people who more technical but for roles leaning more creative or ideas based - I don’t understand how patterns I’m forced to review in a short time tells them I’m worth it to get the Hiring manager round. One asked me 50 ques in 15 min. And they never tell how you did on the tests


      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Anyone have any stories of times where you declined an offer at one company (just because it wasn’t the exact right fit or you got another better offer at that time) and u successfully re-connect? Is that a burned bridge forever? Would they consider you for another job again?
