Senior Project Manager Interview

Senior Project Manager

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

Interview Details – Internal interview process similarly mirrors external process. Resume submission was easy. Kept in contact with a combination of automated emails and recruiter phone calls. 1st interview was recruiter. 2nd with hiring manager. 2 weeks after the hiring manager interview, received contact from the recruiter about job offer. No formal offer letter due to internal transfer.

Interview Question – Do not recall.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Non-existent. Internal promotions are pretty much a take it or leave it event.

Senior Project Manager

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

Interview Details – Two interviews, one was a peer interview which I especially appreciated as it gave me the opportunity to get a feel for the team and ask questions about the culture of the team.
There was communication throughout from my application through the HR screening process to the interview scheduling and the decision process. The interiew was a "behavioral" or "situational" style interview focusing on behaviors, successes, and past learning experiences. Equal opportunity given for me to ask questions. I walked away from the interview process feeling as though I had every opportunity to distinguish myself as a candidate.

Senior Project Manager Interview

Senior Project Manager
Hartford, CT

I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in September 2012.

Interview Details – Interviewing with the hiring manager and his/her peers was uneventful and standard.
Where UNH fell down was with the recruiter. She was very disorganized and not informative or responsive.
Also, in my observations. requisitions are left open on internet job sites when positions have long since been filled, creating confusion and unnecessary work for applicants.

Interview Question – Interviews included the usual behavioral and technical questions.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The recruiting process and lack of organization sent a bad message to me about the company.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in March 2007.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a difficult coworker and how the situation was resolved.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Always negotiate the offer. Worst they can say is no. They obviously want you for the position.

Interview Details – apply online as soon as the job opening is posted. within 24 hours you get a self-identify automated email. HR recruiter will then call to set up initial HR phone screen, then phone interview with hiring manager and possibly team member, in-person panel interview with at least 2 people.
