I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Accretive Health in April 2013.
Interview Details – Why healthcare? tell me about a time you failed. how do you lead a team? 4 interviews. 1st and 2nd are cultural fit interviews, 3rd and 4th are behavioral interviews. after you get your offer, you wont hear anything until your start date which sucks.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Accretive Health.
Interview Details – After speaking with the recruiter, I went through five different interviews on the same day with mostly regional stakeholders and a couple corporate HR people.
Interview Question – Are you morally OK with asking for money from someone dying in a hospital bed? View Answer
Reason for Declining – Long, intense hours and morally questionable job responsibilities
I applied through college or university - interviewed at Accretive Health in December 2012.
Interview Details – Although lengthy, I thought it was very fair and balanced with both lower and higher level employees. I met with 3 different individuals throughout the day. None were trying to intimidate or stump me and it was good, easy conversation. I had each interviewer's full attention - they weren't writing or typing my verbatim responses, but engaged in a dialogue with me.
Interview Question – As a college student, I think the hardest thing to answer was how I was successful in problem solving without using examples from class projects or group work. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There wasn't one when I was first hired as I came straight out of college.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Accretive Health in November 2012.
Interview Details – I was referred through a current employee, and contacted for a phone interview within a few days. The phone interview was pretty standard - 30 minutes of the recruiter asking about my background and previous experience, then explaining what Accretive is looking for in a new employee. I was asked at the end of the phone interview to come in for face to face interviews the next week. I interviewed with 6 different people - 4 "managers" and 2 "peers". The interviews were again pretty standard and not difficult. I left feeling very good about how everything went and was told I'd be contacted within a week. After not hearing back, I called the HR recruiter to get an update. The recruiter was extremely difficult to get a hold of, always sending calls to voicemail and only occasionally returning my messages. He explained that they were making organizational changes within the company and waiting to get exec approval before bringing anyone onboard - it seemed fishy and I was right to have my suspicions. Week after week would go by, and I was never contacted first with updates, I always had to call them asking for an update. They kept leading me on by asking for my soonest possible start date, saying they'd have approval for me to start within the next 2-3 days, and then I wouldn't hear from them again until I reached out after a week or two. After about 3 weeks I was finally told that their legal department was trying to work through my non-compete with my former employer. After hearing that, and all the trouble I'd already gone through trying to get information out of them, I decided to take an offer from another company instead of waiting around on Accretive. I'm glad I did - if HR is any indication of how the company is functioning, they are a mess.
Interview Question – All the standard interview questions. If you're prepared, you'll be fine. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Accretive Health in November 2012.
Interview Details – The HR department is terribly unresponsive. I was jokingly accused of being a "stalker" by the main HR contact. The reasoning behind this? I had the audacity to call/e-mail on a weekly basis after I never heard back from the representative despite her having made a specific date/time appointment to speak with me.

Interview Details – I sent my resume and cover letter to their HR and they called me back in a week or so. I had an initial phone screen that was pretty typical for an actuarial position, mostly general stuff about my background as an actuary at another company. About a week after that, I was scheduled to speak with an actuary for a half-hour. He explained the company and the role a bit and then discussed my experience. They are looking for project management experience in this position. He asked me about how I work, large vs. small groups, independently vs. teamwork, and what my preference would be. What kind of data do you work with? Health insurance has TONS of data, so you need to be able to speak to database skills. He asked me to explain what I do. Finally he described some of the job requirements: data analysis, understanding of the risk-adjusted world, interact with the hospital system, negotiation of contracts with insurance companies, care coordination, identify targets of who are risky patients, and to develop value propositions to help get new customers.
