I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.
Interview Details – Process began when I submitted my resume to the UHG job portal for a Project Manager position. The job I applied for was located in Santa Ana, CA, but my first contact was from an HR person in Minnesota. This first contact was a phone call about 5 days after I submitted my resume. I spent about forty minutes on the phone with this person. Easy first interview; mostly questions about why I left each of my previous jobs and what my strengths and weaknesses are. Nothing technical. I feel the goal of this interview was to test my demeanor and verify if I could string coherent sentences together. I was told my resume would be forwarded to the hiring manager and I should hear from them within the week. About a week later, I received an email asking my availability for a face to face interview. The earliest date was for the following week. I note this because the UHG hiring process is not a fast one; even when there is an immediate need, as in this case.
The face to face interview(s) lasted about three hours. I first interviewed with the hiring manager. This interview was similar to the phone interview I had previously with HR. I was asked if I had time to meet with the Director that oversees this position. Of course I said yes. I waited a few minutes before the Director arrived. This interview was very technical and covered the specific responsibilities held at each of my former employers. Luckily, I had brought examples of my work to share. Again I was asked if I had time for another interview; this time with the Senior VP that oversees this position. Again I said yes. After about 20 minutes, I had a third interview with the SVP, Director and hiring manager. The SVP ran this interview which seemed mostly social. Not technical at all. At the end, I was told they would get back to me soon.
About a week later, I was given a job offer contingent on the successful completion of a drug test and background check. The drug test was quick. The background check took about a week. I was cleared for employment on a Tuesday but could not start work until the following Monday because of new employee orientation.

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in April 2010.
Interview Details – The HR is outsourced so there was someone who did a phone screen, which was not very engaging - just reviewing the requirements of the job and your ability.
Next was interviewed over phone by 2-3 managers.
In my experience the interview was not difficult. The interviewer also does not try to stress you much. I thought they are judging the communication skills more than anything else.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in September 2009.
Interview Details – Couple of interviews with director and Sr. Director. This was followed by an interview with the VP. Good follow through by the hiring manager. Since there are several different groups the processes can differ widely.
Negotiation Details – Negotiation practice was not very good. Recruiters took their own time and were not knowledgeable. Get everything in writing as verbal commitment were not accurate.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in November 2009.
Interview Details – I was recommended by a personal contact within the organization. Two separate positions were available, so on the interview day, I arrived and was interviewed by the supervisor of each position, separately. Then I met with a potential colleague to get more information about the culture of the organization. The process lasted about 1.5 hours. I received an offer the next day, and accepted the offer one day later.
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in December 2007.
Interview Details – They were painfully slow and did not communicate well at all. They are the worst employer in the nation. They were late by 2 weeks in scheduling the second interview. They keep you in the dark and you really have to push them hard to move forward.
My only advise is that don't work for them.
Negotiation Details – The negotiation went pretty well. The HR person was good. They gave me the right amount of salary that I desired. So no complaints there.
The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in March 2010.
Interview Details – The initial contact is done through a recruiter. That is the first interview. And that is normally a phone interview. The next step was meeting with the hiring manager and a manager and supervisor in the department. That was a panel interview. Then a call back interview for another panel interview, which consisted of six people. Then a last interview with the IT PMO Director, which was a phone interview.
