Insurance Customer Service Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and 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 Question – 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 (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and 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.
Interview Question – This interview did not ask any questions, they wanted the interviewee to ask the questions. Answer Question

Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Allstate in December 2013.
Interview Details Initial communication was with an officer in my area, through him the position became available and I was given a link to apply online by a recruiter. I emailed several times with her before conducting a phone-screen interview. I made clear my interview requirements, which needed to be after the school semester was over, and Allstate was more than accommodating. On my interview day I was taken to my area by the intern lead where I interviewed with 5 senior-level directors in my department to determine which team would provide the best mutual fit.
Interview Question – My interviews served less of a case study and more of "tell me about yourself" conversations to determine best fit. The most difficult part was thinking on the spot to tie my experiences into the different teams whose responsibilities were unknown to me prior. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation as this was the position I was seeking
