Operations Lead Interview

Operations Lead

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed 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 Question – 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? Tell me about your experience with Excel. When was a time you faced adversity?   Answer Question

Operations Lead Interview

Operations Lead

Interviewed at Accretive Health

Interview Details – Standard interview process with several members of the leadership team. Done at the main office in Chicago. Certain individuals were more interested in having a casual conversation to explain more about the role and the company, while others were more formal and asked more typical interview questions. Overall it was a fairly typical interview process.

Operations Lead Interview

Operations Lead
Nashville, TN

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Accretive Health.

Interview Details – I recently was selected for an interview on campus and based on previous hires from Vanderbilt. I did research and found the company to have some bad PR but still I was excited. While interviewing with the "VP" of Recruiting all of that interest and excitement faded. This person was completely unprofessionally, asking about what my parents did for a living is not relevant! This person also could not articulate "where" the opportunity/job would be and I was not about to sign up with a company where I had no idea where I would be working.

Interview Question – "What does your father do"   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Operations Lead Interview

Operations Lead
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Accretive Health in March 2012.

Interview Details – Decent. Took forever, kept hearing they'd let me know "next week". Next week turned into never. April was always very nice but I never felt like she was being completely honest. Probably a good company to start off at but I wouldn't stick around too long. The company makes headlines somewhat often and not always for good reasons. Faulty financial statements (for 9 quarters), questionable collection practices, and hedges are dumping their stock. Do your research.

Operations Lead
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Accretive Health in November 2010.

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.
