    Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate 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

    Health Educator I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate 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

    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.

    Sales Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate 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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at WebMD Health in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very Slow. The panel interview process was not as orderly as I thought it would be. The description of the job from upper management and lower management were not consistent. this made it very difficult to prepare for the interview.

    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at WebMD Health in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    The office location in NYC is great and the actual offices were great, modern, open, and friendly environment. Looks like a great place to work.

    I had a great meeting with the hiring manager, he asked relevant questions about my background. It was a very comfortable exchange, felt more like a conversation than an interview. I was explained what the responsibilities of the role would be and the benefits of the company. By the end of the interview there was mutual interest.

    Unfortunately, there was a decision not to fill the position. It took a few weeks to be told this, but I'm sure this was a difficult decision.

    Overall, I had a great experience and would be interested in WebMD in the future.
