    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Accretive Health.

    Interview Details

    Very unprofessional recruitment process. Became friendly and comfortable with April who was leading interviews on my campus. Extended an offer verbally at final rounds and informed me that I should expect to have a package to review two weeks later. Two and a half months later I had still not heard back from April or the company and did not get any responses to the email that I sent checking for updates. Finally, Accretive sent me a short email three months later telling me I did not get the position. Inconsiderate and poor communication.

    Interview Questions
    • All three rounds of interviews are fairly easy. 1st campus interview casual conversation, second round meet with two operation leads behavioral based questions, final round with more senior employees and also behavioral based. --- How would you react to a supervisor who didn't take your concerns seriously?

    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

    The location is good,but as the manager said "I wish we can keep it with all these Lawsuits"
    it was obvious that this data integration team (which all Indian BTW ) have their own arrangement for this position,this Interview I had it was fake just for show,the whole team no one isn't Indian.

    They moved quickly on testing, interview process and onboarding the moment I agreed to talk to them, which is what I needed at the time. Made them look efficient and professional, since this was all done remotely.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Contract Modeler Interview

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

    The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed 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

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.
