    Managed Care Rotational Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cigna.

    Interview Details

    I was granted a first round interview through my University on-campus recruiting. It was a 2:1 interview with a general recruitment manager and someone from the specific team I would be on. They first gave me an overview of the position and then questions were pretty typical--walk me through your research experience, etc. The interviewers were very kind but I did notice one making eyes when I messed up some names... All and all, the first round interview was easy but I will admit I was highly underprepared and botched it so that was a bummer.

    Make sure you know the name of the position/where you'd like to be located/what specifically attracts you to Cigna. It seems like they're also really looking for poise.

    Underwriter Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cigna.

    Interview Details

    Filled out an application online. Was contacted in about a week by phone. Was asked about my availability, why i was interested in the position, and if i was looking for full time work. Was told she would share my information with the hiring manager and would contact me if she wanted to move forward. About a week after that i was contacted to schedule an interview. Note that since the recruiter is not local they will not know exactly how things are at a certain location. I was told to go to the security desk, show my id, and tell them i had an appointment with the underwriting specialist. When i arrived there, there wasn't a security desk and not alot of insight of where to go. I thought i was going to miss the interview but luckily a young lady assisted me with finding my way. The recruiter stated i was going to have two separate interviews with the director and specialist. I ended up having one interview with three managers all together. First they introduced themselves, told their roles and how long they had been with the company. Then asked me to tell them about myself and go through my resume. I was asked questions about excel (what functions ive used), when was a time i had to make decisions as i went along, how would i think decisions are made to determine risks, how did i think they determined risk in an employer setting. Described the position and asked what exactly i felt would give me trouble about the position. Overall, it was a good experience. My interview was today so I'm not sure if i will get an offer or not so I answered no offer. I just wanted to get my review out to fellow interviewers while it was fresh on my mind!

    TECDP Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cigna.

    Interview Details

    Overall it was a unique and very lengthy experience. I applied in August, and had an on campus interview at the end of September. I heard back for the day two interview at the end of October. They then e-mailed decisions at the end of November.

    Every associate I met with during the recruiting process was nice and the interviews were comfortable. The on campus (University) interview was about 40 minutes.

    The day two interview consisted of going to a hotel. We went to the Cigna office where we were given a presentation about the company, and a presenter made it a point to say "Only the best of the best" get chosen. Afterwards, we were then set off in groups for a dinner, accompanied by some TECDP associates and managers. This is a big part of the process because they are screening to see if you may fit in with the company and the program. They want to see that you are enthusiastic and sociable.

    The next morning, we traveled to the Cigna office to begin a 4 part interview process that takes around 8 hours to coordinate among all the applicants. There is a 5 minute presentation about yourself, a process modeling case study, a group project, and a regular behavioral interview. It's manageable if you prepare and have confidence in yourself.

    My main takeaways were that Cigna has a very refined TECDP program, and they invest a lot of time into developing people that do get hired. Every associate seems very involved and happy to be there. However, I have no real insight on the selection process. There is a large number of bright candidates competing for the job. Even if you do everything right and have a solid background, there may be some luck in getting accepted.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cigna.

    Interview Details

    This was an On Campus screening first interview for the Cigna Actuarial Development Program. The interview lasted about 30 minutes. There were two Cigna actuaries doing the interview. They asked standard behavioral questions and a brain teaser (how would you estimate the number of golf balls that an airplane would hold). The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. I thought the interview went well but did not get a call back for a second interview

    I was contacted by email to set up a time for a phone interview, which was scheduled for a couple of days after the email. During the phone conversation, I spoke with the HR rep who contacted me and a current associate in the program. The conversation lasted about 15 minutes.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cigna in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round of interviews on campus - second round at one of their offices. They put you up in a hotel, you get a nice dinner out of it. 4 different sessions for the second interview - group activity, one on one interview, case study on something you select (e.g. java, .net, sql) and a pre-prepared presentation on a project you've worked on. Not an exceptionally difficult interview, actually a pretty fun experience.
