Health Coach Consultant Interview

Health Coach Consultant
Sandy, UT

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Aetna in June 2010.

Interview Details – Met with the manager and the manager's manager, was asked the usual questions. Got a pretty good understanding of what was expected of me. They reviewed the training process, what the expectations were of me by what time frame- basically up and running in a year. Answered my questions, felt I had a good feel for what my job would entail. Had never worked for a large corporation, so didn't really understand all the layers and requisitions and people that would need to be consulted with for simple things like an ergonomic chair.

Interview Question – Do not recall any unexpected or difficult questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate

Financial Underwriter Interview

Financial Underwriter
Walnut Creek, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Aetna in February 2011.

Interview Details – I interviewed with my prospective manager at the career center of my school. He was very nice and we had a good conversation. He gave me basic information about the role and answered all of my questions comprehensively.

A few days later, I was invited to an onsite interview, with a panel of 3 peer underwriters simultaneously. They stated they would go through basic questions and then ask me basic stats questions afterwards. However, after striking up a conversation with them for about an hour, they expressed their pleasure when candidates ask them a lot of questions but proceeded to completely bypass the math/stats questions. I found it a little odd but I think they were too exhausted at that point and already stopped considering me for the job, but I wish they had been straightforward with me and stopped me from asking further questions about the role if they were actually getting tired of it.

Aetna Customer Service Representative Interview

Aetna Customer Service Representative
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aetna in March 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online. Received a call 3 days later to schedule a phone interview. About a 30 minute phone interview ths was a bit excessive for a call center rep position. Went in for a face to face interview with some ride and inconsiderate people. I live on the opposite end of town and had to travel 30+ miles to get there. I arrived 15 minutes early and they were 15 minutes late. Also you are inteviewed by three people and they ask a bunch of excessive questions that have nothing to do with the position. I was only interviewed by two and waited 45 minutes for the person and she never showed up. I was told they would reschedule my interview and that was a lie. They emailed me a few days later saying they are pursuing other candidates. Totally inconsiderate towards me. I would never consider working there even if i was offered a position with them. Better jobs with better hours and benefits are out there.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It was more of a lateral move for me. I was working at ADP as an Implementation Manager and did not expect a sizable increase. They offered $2,000 above what I was currently making and I accepted.
