    RN Case Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Hartford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Aetna in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied on line for several positions. A few weeks passed before initial call. Interviewed for one position by several people, all friendly and clear in expectations of position, and what I could expect for call back time frame. All sounded positive, but then I was called to interview for another position. My impression was I was pulled from a candidate pool even though I was not selected for the position I initially applied for. Second interview went well, follow up and offer was within 2 weeks. Very thorough orientation and training.

    Interview Questions
    • One manager asked me " What about you would you not want me to know as your manager? " Bit of a head game. That was not the manager that hired me, and that I now work for thankfully.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not much room for negotiation of salary, but it was the low end of fair market and made up the difference in what I would have preferred within 1 year.
