    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Accretive Health in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a personal and professional friend was also a Physician Advisor. I contacted the HR department, was mailed an application packet which I completed and submitted, and then was scheduled for an interview date where I had 1:1 face-to face interviews with 3 persons including the medical director. This interview process on that date took 2-3 hours, covered my medical credentials and certifications, whether I could contribute in a team-based environment, and whether I was comfortable with medical records and varieties of electronic medical record systems.

    Healthcare Operations Lead Interview

    Interview Details

    They came on campus to interview and were completely unprofessional from the start. They did not ask any challenging questions and they missed all of their own deadlines on getting back to us. Additionally, they acted as though the last three of us that made it through the interview rounds were already hired in our cities of choice and then went back on their word and said we would have to be in the middle of no where.

    Interview Questions
    • When have you been left completely alone to deal with a situation?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    They clearly had no idea what they were doing and were unprofessional and unstable as a company.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Accretive Health in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was very disappointed with the interview questions. The behavioral ones were fine but went downhill from there. Started off with a phone interview, and first the interviewer had a very very thick accent, to the point where I couldn't understand him, and had to ask him to repeat many of the questions. Second he had many technical questions, some were very fair, but others were completely irrelevant trivia. One example would be, what .Net library is SQLConnection in? Luckily I knew the answer but questions like that are a huge red flag. I tried to ask about the work environment, company culture, and got very canned vague answers. I'll admit I was a bit put off, I got a callback but declined to pursue further.

    Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Accretive Health.

    Interview Details

    The interview process provided a glimpse of the work environment at Accretive...the schedule kept changing, everyone I was to meet with was busy and ran late, and I spent a long time between interviews just cooling my heels in the lobby waiting for my next meeting to turn up.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty vanilla questions, no real curveballs or tricks.   Answer Question

    Came in with a strong offer, didn't negotiate a whole lot on salary, but did move a little on amount of stock options offered.

    Contract Modeler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Accretive Health.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty standard. Basically going through your work and educational history. Typically interviews are with about 3-4 people in a row and around 30 minutes each, so less intense than a lot of the companies I've interviewed for. I'm sure the reason being is that this company's employees can often be overworked and also the organization is highly organized.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was how do you react when you get angry. This particular interviewer I felt tried to aggravate and pound me with questions, but I don't think it's typical. He actually recommended me later and was nice to work with. I may have answered a question too shortly in the beginning of the interview, but I'd be prepared to answer something like this question, of course with a positive spin, just in case it comes up.   Answer Question
