MFLC Interview

MFLC
Charleston, SC

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Magellan Health in March 2012.

Interview Details – Most licensed people are hired as we don't have enough people. Process is tedious but normal as far as I can tell. Issue that most have is despite 1 year or 20 of experience and licensure, all MFLCs make the same for this vendor.

Interview Question – Difficulty dependent on supervisor and his/her help as their job is home based while you are "boots on the ground" , as they say.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Company in charge demands one is off an installation for 3-6 months before beginning again (secondary ptsd? my theory) and if you do not have a base close enough to travel to from the original, you have no where to work in between. It's a huge company but the 600 is MFLCs do not receive paid holidays... as do the other thousands of employees of this company.

Customer Service Specialist Interview

Customer Service Specialist

I applied through a staffing agency and interviewed at Magellan Health.

Interview Details – I had one interview and it was very detailed. They ask questions to see what you would do in certain scenarios, get a feel if you are a team player or not, and also put you on the spot. Come prepared and confident. Keep in mind they want someone with a positive attitude, who will work hard, and definitely they need a TEAM player.

Interview Question – A question about to how handle a conflict within a team   Answer Question

Caremanager Interview

Caremanager
Newtown, PA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Magellan Health in September 2009.

Interview Details – early in the days you just applied and went in for a face to face interview, unlike today when it is all on line on their website. You sent in a resume, was sceduled to come in and meet with the supervisor and was able to directly sell yourself for the job. Today's process everywhere is so cold and informal.
