    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Magellan Health (Saint Louis, MO) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. Was contacted by the HR representative to set up a call. Had a call that lasted roughly 15 minutes where she asked basic questions. Was told that my information would be forwarded to the hiring manager and a in person interview will be scheduled if they are interested. The hiring manager (not HR) called about a week later to set up the in person interview. This interview lasted about an hour with a mixture of behavioral questions as well as the basics. Was told that I would hear back in about two weeks with a possibility of a second interview if the hiring manager was still unsure of which candidates were best. After several follow up emails, never heard from them again.

    Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    interviewed at Magellan Health in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call approx 1 week later from HR to set up a phone interview. We set up the date and time for me to call and I recorded on my calendar. I thought it was unusual that I did not receive an email confirmation, which is what I have come to expect as the norm for the beginning of the interview process. Since I am currently employed I arranged my work schedule around our interview time and called at the agreed upon time. I received the HR individual's voice mail and left a kind and detailed message with my name and contact information, the date we had originally spoken and that I was calling for our scheduled phone interview and to feel free to call me back. Never received a call back or an email explaining the no show for my interview. I was pretty surprised at how unprofessional this was. Their loss is another companies gain!

    Compliance Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Magellan Health (Miami, FL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online after seeing the advt on a health professional website. After that I received a call from a company secretary to set up a telephone interview (with the corporate supervisor of the potential position and another compliance officer from another regional office) which went well (though there was problem with the phone and I had to switch for better audibility) and there was even some negotiation of salary because of which I felt optimistic about possibly getting this job. Then an in person interview was scheduled within a week of the tel interview. In person interview was with a panel of 3 (1 from corporate office, the corporate supervisor of the potential position), another the compliance officer from another office and the third the local manager of the office. THe interview lasted 30-40 minutes. Questions ranged from prior job experiences, culling job relevant experience from those, to some questions testing interviewee's familiarity with the regulatory government agency's current head (which I did not expect, though I had prepared for the interview). One uncomfortable comment was the corporate supervisor noting my not being in my last job for the last couple of months which I thought may have affected their perception of my strength as a job candidate. The local manager asked some questions one of which was what 3 of my strengths were that I would bring to the job. As I left, I also sensed the local manager was not interested in hiring me. I had also seen the names of some other interviewees as I waited (from the sign in sheet). Later I checked who they were and what their backgrounds were and saw one of them had been working in a related position at another organization and guessed that person may get hired over me though my background was better.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Magellan Health (San Diego, CA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    There were two sets of phone interviews which went well, with promises to follow up which never occurred. Never received any communications about status of application. learned later through other sources that positions was filled months later with a less qualified candidate. Issue was mostly about salary once they learned what I was earning at current position. This company is not a good payer compared to others in the industry.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Magellan Health (Saint Louis, MO) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online and was approached via e-mail about the position. I had an initial interview with the hiring recruiter, then was forwarded to the actual person requiring the services. We had a great conversation, I was told I would definitely be considered and was told about the entire process. I was told I would get a test task to see if I was up for the writing part of the job and was told that it was likely my skills were beyond the position's requirements. After that there was no contact. I followed up with the hiring recruiter and the person requiring the services and did not hear back from either.

    Interview

    Got the interview through a recruiting company. The actual interview lasted about 45 minutes and involved a lot of what if questions. The hiring manager appears to be taking advantage of tough market. Apparently they already turned down at least 60 candidates.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Magellan Health (Alpharetta, GA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    In order to establish a new consulting and process re-engineering team, the Company was looking for two candidates to fall under the leadership of a Project leader. The initial interview was a phone screening by the HR department in order to see if the role fit my past experiences and interests. The second interview was done by the Project Leader; it started as a basic interview format and it transformed into a more in-depth look into my past project managament experience, ability to handle multiple projects at the same time while being able to address any issues to senior management and ultimately how I would handle different scenarios and what was my assessment, plan, implementation and evaluation processes. The interviewer was informal when discussing the roles and plans for this newly developed team and that made the interview more comfortable. The position was not offered due to my limited experience with direct project management processes nonetheless it gave me a quick snapshot of the Project Management world.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Magellan Health in May 2010.

    Interview

    A long process of interviews, providing background info, work samples, etc., leading to a second face-to-face, this time with a person I perceived to be the primary decision-maker. All handled very professionally up to this point, albeit the protracted time frame. Final interviewer was polite and talked a lot about self and company origins. 'Needed me to provide hard copy of resume and then appeared unfamiliar with its contents (disconcerting). Nothing remarkable said or occurred. I was older than the interviewer but, other than that, cannot think of anything to account for why the process ended here.
