    Communications Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Blue Cross (TX) in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    First received an email from a recruiter w/ the full Job Description (something I insist upon), then a phone interview w/ said recruiter. High banter re: how my skills and work history match client's (BCBS) needs for the role. Recruiter reported his findings to client, who expressed a desire to meet me f2f. Recruiter called me w/ a set date/time to meet at client location. Met w/ the Project Mgr and Dept Mgr I'd be working with, altogether in small conf room. Comfortable mutual conversation regarding duties/responsibilities, and (warmly) similar work history to the Project Mgr I'd work alongside. Intuition told me it went well, and I was promised a second interview before departure that day. However, a week later the agency let me know BCBS "hired from within". Sometimes that's code for "we changed our mind", but considering the size of the company, maybe it was legit.

    Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Blue Cross (TX) in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Length of time from submitting resume until recruiter contact - 1.5 months. Once I had the phone screen it was another month or so before I heard anything back.

    During initial phone call (screen) w/recruiter they asked very basic questions and then said if I was looking to negotiate on salary to "forget it". That this was "not the type of position someone could come in and if they liked me they would offer more".

    Bizarre thing to say to a candidate. I was then invited in for in person interviews and was a bit blindsided with the job requirements - which were totally different than what was posted.

    Once I did go in for the in person interview it included very awkward tour and interactions with recruiter. Recruiter was not knowledgeable at all about the company, position or team.

    When I asked questions the recruiter didn't know the answer to any. Basic questions like how large is the company? What are the goals for this role? How many people are on the team? What is the reporting structure? When I requested receipt of information I sent in follow up to the recruiter to share w/the hiring manager I received no response. Followed up multiple times with no response. I get that this is sometimes part of the process but after spending my time collecting information THEY requested, a confirmation of receipt would have been courteous.

    I think if you are looking for a cutting edge company this is not it. If you are looking for a thorough and knowledgeable recruiter interaction you will not find it here. In my mind recruiters are part of the face of the company to new and perspective candidates and in this instance, it was not normal recruiter interaction.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Blue Cross (TX) in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    it was a phone interview, i was asked to clink a link from an email that would take me to a screen where the interviewer could watch me type out code. it was straight to the code review, no general questions. i guess they wanted to week out the weaklings early in the process.

    Interview Questions
    • i was asked to write a program in any language that would take a string reverse it and return it
      i had the idea in my head, he apparently didn't like it,
       
      Answer Question
    • told me to do more basic stuff and i seemed to stumble on it because i was nervous
      he quickly said he was looking for someone more senior and hung up
      i'm sure the average student probably could have done it, but i was pretty nervous
