Easy Process if you've practiced a few times and put the time in. I would study recent news from our industry.

Be able to tell your story well, know where you've been and where you're going.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Falls Church, VA (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of one over the phone interview with a recruiter, which was followed by several online applications/screens. An in-person interview was set about a week or two later, however HR did not give preference to the times I had requested. Furthermore, of the 4 interviews scheduled for the in-person, two were held over the phone. So, not really conducive to the interview process of taking a whole day off to really meet with two people.

    Interview

    Learned a lot about the company. Complex structure, employees are confused about it too. Interviewer was an employee working remotely. She was enthusiastic and helpful. There's nothing much else to say, but I need 30 words.

    Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (New York, NY (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for this position as an internal applicant. The process took about a little over a month from when I applied to when I received the official offer. The first thing that happened was about a week after I applied, I received an email inviting me to complete an interview using HireVue. It consisted of some pretty basic background questions, "why are you looking to change roles"..."what strengths would you bring to this role"...etc. I completed this and about a week after this, the Hiring Manager reached out to me by email and set up a date and time for a phone interview where more of the specifics of the position were discussed and I was asked some more in depth questions about my background and experience (I.e. " tell me about a time when you...."). The questions were not terribly hard and I felt comfortable during the whole process as it just seemed more like I was having a conversation with someone who wanted to get to know me. About a week after this I was notified that I would be completing a 2nd phone interview with another manager, who asked very similar questions. A little over a week went by and I was notified by the first interviewer that the Director of the department wanted to interview me by phone. Again, the questions were fairly similar to my first 2 phone interviews I had but with some more in depth discussion about my experiences as related to this role. All of my phone interviews went really well and I felt great after each one. This was a telecommute position so there was not a face-to-face interview in this process. I spoke the Director on a Wednesday, mid morning, and by that same Friday afternoon I received a verbal offer from HR and a written offer the Monday after.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about your experience with starting a program from scratch.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Since I was an internal applicant I knew what the salary ranges were for the different grade levels and my offer was right on par with that so there was no need for negotiation; I feel that I received a fair offer for my education level (Master's Degree), experience, and existing time in with the company.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Minneapolis, MN (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Convoluted. Arrogant phone interview followed by several rounds of interrogating me about why I chose to major in philosophy as opposed to a more "well-rounded" business subject. I was horrified that the HR rep was so obnoxious. No way in hell I'd ever work at UHG!

    Interview

    Got recruited at campus. Attended career fair, 2 rounds of interviews and was given offer letter. Round 1 was behavioral and round 2 was more of a discussion on past experience, 'fit' . Interview questions were standard. Nothing unexpected or out of the ordinary.

    Interview

    Have an interview with the hiring manager, then a panel interview, and if you are selected for the position there is several layers of on boarding. It is easy, but it definitely tedious & there are some items that are time sensitive (drug test).
