    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Non-existent. Internal promotions are pretty much a take it or leave it event.

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Hartford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    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 Questions
    • Interviews included the usual behavioral and technical questions.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

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

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Depends on manager. Behavioral questions are asked to demonstrate how you handle/act in different situations. If you are interviewing for a technical position, technical questions may be asked, including examples of your work.

    Interview Questions

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