    Purchasing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at WebMD Health.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. I was told by the staffing firm that it went very well, and that I was a strong candidate. I had an on-site interview 4 days later with the hiring manager and 2 others and again told the same thing as well as that I would be meeting with the CFO shortly. I followed up several times, and told that things were taking longer than expected. Finally, after 3 weeks a date was set for what I thought would be the last steps. The day before the interview, the recruiter called me advising that he had been advised that WebMD had no intention of hiring me or any other candidate and that the interview was cancelled! I have heard similar reports from other candidates. WebMD needs to utilize greater honesty and integrity in its hiring practices!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at WebMD Health in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the positon and a few days later I was contacted by the recruiter. We scheduled a phone interview for that week. During the phone interview she ask questions like "tell me about yourself" "What health topics are your strong points" " what are your weaknesses"? After the phone interview we scheduled a In person interview at the end of the call. Within a few days I had a interview with a center supervisor She ask questions like "How do you feel about being listen to often and rated on calls" "how do you feel working in a call center atmosphere", "when have you had similar work experience", "why should I hire you"?. After the interview she mentioned I should hear from them soon either way. It's been a month and a half and I have not heard back from webmd. I followed up with an email three weeks later and the recruiter mention that are in the middle of finalizing the buyer for hiring with the corporate office and right now they do not know how long it will take before they make decisions and ensured me I will be contacted when a decision is made.

    Sales Planner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Interview Details

    I went in for my first interview and met with the manager and her supervisor. The interview went well and I was contacted by HR the next day and asked to come in again. I went in and met with 4 more people. I felt confident with the interview and was told that I should be hearing back within the next week or two and that I was a strong candidate. I followed up a week later and was told that they were still on the first round of candidates but I should hear back within a week. I followed up again about a week and a half later and never heard back, so I tried one more time a week after that and never heard back again... Everyone asked the same questions: Why are you interested in the position, how do you keep yourself organized, etc.

    Technical Product Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at WebMD Health.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got a reply in 2 days and scheduled a phone conversation. Spoke with the recruiter, but I did not think she had much of technical knowledge except she knew about tech keywords. A month later, another recruiter contacted me and I went over my experience again over the phone. Again, I did not think the new recruiter was from technical background. He was telling me the names of software and if I have experience with these tools. For example, technical management does not need to be proficient in photoshop. It could be any basic edit tools, but he was kept asking me about exact names of software rather than the actual skills. I felt uncomfortable telling him that these software products are not important.

    Did not hear back from anyone after a month. WebMD should invest into hiring great Technical Recruiters. Otherwise, all experienced managers would not get through the HR screening. I interview many candidates at my current job to build my team, and asking these stupid questions showed how tech-driven this company is.

    Interview Questions
    • Was never asked about software development process. They cared about photoshop, illustrator, and balsamiq.   Answer Question

    Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at WebMD Health.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter emailed me to set up interview, put salary range in there etc. The interview itself was with 4 people, one at a time, a senior editor, editorial manager, a director and one other person

    Interview Questions
    • Straightforward interview; not many questions on editing which surprised me. More on strengths and weaknesses, why do you want to work here; etc. I felt I was repeating myself because a lot of them asked the same questions. Seemed more like they were trying to get a feel of me rather than caring what I said.   Answer Question

    Web Developer Interview

    Interview Details

    Met with nine people in two hours. Most interviewers were extremely young, energetic, and book smart... but with zero experience. Lots of tech tests and BS logic questions.

    Not a pleasant time.

    Health Educator I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at WebMD Health in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online and received a call from a WebMD employee about a week later.

    I then scheduled a phone interview with a departmental supervisor. The interview included basic questions (Why WebMD? What experience do you have? Why health education? Can you work in a call center environment?). At the end of the call, my interviewer said she would follow up shortly.

    A few days later, I received an email from my initial interviewer to set up an interview with a higher up. Apparently, this second interview is usually on site, but since I am relatively far from Indianapolis, I was reassured that a second phone interview would be sufficient.

    My second interview contained most of the same questions I had in the first interview; it was actually shorter than my initial interview, despite me asking my interviewer as many questions as I could. My second interviewer told me she would follow up with me within two weeks.

    Two weeks passed by so I waited about a week more before following up with my initial interviewer by email. She replied more than a week later, telling me that WebMD was still conducting interviews and I would hear "in a week or so". It has been 5 weeks since that email and I haven't heard back.

    The interviews were easy and very pleasant, but waiting to hear back from them has been a nightmare.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult. If applying for a Health Educator position, I would try and have some examples of health education classes or programs you planned.   Answer Question

    Sales Planner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at WebMD Health.

    Interview Details

    Interview went amazing. Probably best interview I've had. I was asked to come back twice, was even given an verbal offer (for whatever that's worth). I waited and heard nothing. I reached out and they eventually wrote back saying they went with someone with professional pharma experience. Fine. They ended up recommending me for another job on the consumer side of the business. Great! When does that happen? So, I came back for a third time. A woman that interviewed me was literally checking her phone while I was speaking to her. How rude! I left the interview not feeling great, but heard nothing for weeks. I followed up multiple times and NO ONE got back to me. Super unprofessional.

    Interview Questions
    • normal questions. really just concerned about what I was doing at my current job and if I was experienced enough.   Answer Question
