    Application Details

    I applied through other source - interviewed at Aetna in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed over the phone and there were at least 4 to 5 managers. I was already nervous so knowing that it was going to be MORE than the average 1-3 only increased my anxiety and made me very, very nervous. They asked me questions mainly about case management and how I would handle a situation. For example, what 3 things would be most important before discharging a member who was receiving CM services.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Aetna in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The position was for Junior standing because it was an internship, but I knew someone who worked in the company and got me the interview as a senior about to graduate. The interview started off asking me to talk about myself and then she asked some pretty intense questions. One I could think of had something to do with asking when I had used a certain technology to complete something and what could be done to improve that technology and what I did to improve it.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aetna in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call from a recruiter the next day. Phone interview was 15 minutes asked questions about my skills/experience and interest with the company. Received a call a week later to schedule interview with the hiring managers. Teleconference interview with 2 managers was very professional and organized. It seems that they really enjoyed working at Aetna. Questions were based on your experience and expertise. You really had to prove that you know your stuff well and lasted for an hour and a half. Was told I would get a call or an email. Received the call the next week asking to fill up a second application online within 48 hours. Got an offer the next day.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Aetna in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Already working at Aetna- applied for new position in diff. dept. Behavioral questions, very long & difficult, one interview; was scheduled the same day as receiving the call to schedule and I didn't have time to prepare. Didn't do well-unprepared/unorganized due to lack of time. Interviewers very knowledgeable and approachable, good department to work in; little turnover. Advice: Try to have a file created and ready with behavioral interview questions to practice and if applying for positions, start practicing right away. Then, you will be ready, even if they want to interview you that very moment.
