    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Aetna (Hartford, CT) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and I received a call from Aetna's recruiting department approx 1 week after I applied. A phone interview was scheduled for later that same day. During the phone interview, he asked questions about my previous employment(s), experience, skills and qualification. Why did you leave your last job? Do you have Microsoft, Excel, and PowerPoint knowledge. We talked for about 30-45 minutes. During the end of our interview, I asked what would be the next step. He responded by saying he was going to submit my resume and information pertaining to the phone interview to the hiring manager/Dept. and if the they were interested, someone would contact me within a week or sooner. Three days later I received a face to face interview invitation via phone, and then an email confirmation. Went to the interview, which took an hour questions were behavioral questions....tell about a time you had to speak to a co-worker about...and how did you handle the situation and what was the outcome. Questions were about 15 in total. Now I'm waiting to see if they want to move forward in the hiring process. This is the worst part of the process due to the anticipation. I am staying positive and being patient. However, I still have plan B in case this doesn't a favorable outcome. NO OFFER YET....:)

    Interview

    I met with four managers in the underwriting department total. Two first, then another two right after. Math questions were asked which was a little nerve wracking since I was already nervous. I blanked on the questions but you get to use a pen and paper, just not a calculator.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Aetna (Hartford, CT).

    Interview

    I secured an interview through networking. The interviewing process involved two phone interviews and an in person interview. The first phone interview was very basic. They asked about my background, career goals, and why I would be a good candidate. The second phone interview was pretty difficult. It compromised of two parts--each with different people. Both parts mirrored each other. They asked about my skills, experience, why I would be a good candidate, and some questions to test my knowledge. They would explain a situation then ask me what I though about certain aspects of the situation. All in all not the hardest interview I have ever had but pretty tough nonetheless.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to demonstrate my communication skills by having me choose something, pretend they did not know anything about what I chose, and explain it to them. For example, I chose a common statistic called 'expected value'.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Aetna (Hartford, CT) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online, and received a standard phone interview with a recruiter. The questions weren't anything unexpected, and they invited me for a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager. I interviewed 1:1 with the manager, and I also spoke to two people who would be working with me. The questions were not easy, but they were not overly difficult, either. The manager told me that I should hear a final decision in about 2 weeks.

    I emailed the recruiter once a week for a month before she replied; she told me to contact the hiring manager. I emailed the hiring manager once a week for a month, and never received a response. It has been three months since my interview, and I have to assume that I did not get the job.
