    Applied online via Aetna career website. Received a call a few days later which consisted of a 30 minute phone interview. Interview consisted of behavioral questions about situations you've experienced in your current/past job and education. Also asked about current and previous job(title/duties). Interview is easy as long as you prepare. After the interview, the recruiter let me know that I would be receiving a email for the next step in the hiring process. Scheduled a f2f interview. Just make sure you show enthusiasm for the job and helping people.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Aetna.

    Interview Details

    I was recommended by an employee to apply. My first contact was with the executive assistant to schedule initial interview with the reporting manager. My interview with the reporting manager lasted 30 minutes. I thought it went very well and my 20 + year experience which included working in the medical/healthcare industry was a plus. I was told I made it to next round and had to meet with 3-4 regional sales leaders for this segment. It was a lot of back and forth on Aetna's end to find time with their employees to secure interview times . I found the line of questioning more for someone who held a MBA. Position advertised was not a high level position so in my own opinion the questions did not reflect the listed job description at all.

    Interview Questions
    • They each asked the same questions regarding strategies and thinking outside the box capabilities.   Answer Question

    Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Aetna.

    Interview Details

    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

    Database Administrator Interview

    Interview Details

    You have to know someone to get anywhere. If you are not selected before the job is already listed you cannot get the job. I have interviewed for several jobs while working for the company and this has been the case every time. Even during the interview the hiring manager will tell you they have someone in mind for the position already even if the position was just posted. I believe this is due to rules that they have to post a position prior to promoting someone.
