    Insurance Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months - interviewed at Allstate.

    Interview Details

    Company looks very highly on referrals from current employees. First interview is just to get to know the manager and if they like you, they will have you do an online personality test to see how you would fit in. You will then have an interview with HR, typically an hour where they ask questions based on your relevant work experience(ie tell me about a time when you...). If you pass, a third interview is typically done again by the hiring manager and a job is offered. People are very good to work with , good atmosphere.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult, but be careful with online personality test as it has a lot of weight in the deciding process and if you score low you will not have an interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They have base salaries so typically there will not be much negotiation. They do pay full salary for your training/studying and will pay for your test.

    Human Resources Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Montreal, QC
    Anonymous Employee in Montreal, QC
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Allstate in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewers must be cognizant of the impact they make to the interviewees in regards to the company. It does leave a lasting impression and most definitely affects the company's reputation and sales. I was interviewed by a senior HR individual in the organization. This person was unprofessional, arrogant and was unable to ask conceivable questions. As I left the office, an employee communicated to me that this high level HR executive does not greet anyone and basically no one know's him.

    I will never think of purchasing their products and will definitely discourage anyone from applying for a position or purchasing from them.

    Yes, I was able to negotiate, which was frustrating because my recruiter did not help at all. But I had a direct conversation with the hiring manager.
