Leadership Development Program Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Allstate in May 2014.
Interview Details I got an email the day after submitting my application online with an invitation for a phone interview. The phone interview took place about a week later. It consisted mostly of me talking about my leadership and work experiences during college. The interviewer praised my leadership abilities and experiences, only for me to receive an email the day after saying I was no longer being considered for the program.
Interview Question – Questions mainly about leadership experiences during college Answer Question
Leadership Development Program Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Allstate.
Interview Details The initial Hiring process was by far the hardest part of the entire situation. From the start at the career fair, you have to really stand out and make a great impression. If your credentials (coming right out of college) aren't great, chances are you probably won't get picked. With that being said, I found that if the HR recruiter likes you, the work you've done, and you show obvious signs of leadership at the career fair, you've gotten through the hardest part in the process. I interviewed with HR twice, got a call back a couple of weeks later (grueling, but be patient) and went to HQ to interview with 2 senior managers. The trick is (everyone says this) be yourself. If you aren't comfortable with this, it will show, and your interview is probably going to be terrible. You were picked because of your character and abilities, don't change just to sound right at an interview.
Interview Question – Would you be willing to relocate for this position? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I'm not sure I negotiated. To reiterate, I was coming out of college, and was offered a fairly decent salary that was difficult to turn away from. I wouldn't recommend it.
Leadership Development Program Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Allstate in October 2013.
Interview Details Process began with an on-campus interview shortly after career fair. It was essentially a 45 minute 3 on 1 grilling of behavioral questions. Since it is their Leadership Development Program, they want to see examples of how you were a leader. You should have a bunch of examples at your disposal about how you've been a leader and really made an impact. Though the program mandates you have a 3.5, they'll gladly take somebody with a 3.5 or 3.6 and those really good leadership traits over someone with a 3.7 or 3.8. Second round was at the office in Northbrook where they were more trying to sell Allstate to you, only had 2 20 minute interviews
Interview Question – What does it mean to you to be "great?" Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate, entry level position
Leadership Development Program Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Allstate.
Interview Details Allstate recruits heavily at some colleges for their leadership development program. First step is a short interview using BDA style. You should have several examples of real-world experience that you can apply to a number of different questions fresh in your head before heading into the interview. They are looking for people with lots of recent work/internship experience, so don't bother applying if you have neither.
Interview Question – Name a time when a group you were a part of was not functioning properly - how did you respond? Answer Question
