    Case Management Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Aetna in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter after I applied online for a phone interview. I also attended a career fair that Aetna held. I was then contacted 3 weeks later for a face to face interview. The interview was great I ironically meet with the same hiring manger, what should have been a hour long interview was a 20 minute interview. I was then contacted by the coordinator to look out for an email that would contain another application and consent for background check. I was contacted 3 days later with an offer.

    Actuarial Analyst Interview

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Aetna in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through the Aetna website. I received a phone call about a week later for a phone interview. I passed the phone interview portion & was scheduled an in person interview. The in person interview was very easy it was just basically situation question's. The recruiter was very friendly. I would say overall it was an easy interview. She told me i would receive a follow up email within the next two weeks after they finished interviewing additional candidates. I am currently waiting to see if i receive an email with a job offer.

    Clinical Care Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Albany, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Albany, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Aetna.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by one of the Directors. She had me waiting about 20 minutes past my appointment time but was very courteous about it. She described the program to me in some detail and when it was discovered that I'd had a differenct idea of what the position would be (field vs. telephonic CM) she explained how I could fill a role with a division that would likely require less travel. I really liked her and the program seemed interesting so I proceeded with the interview and accepted the job when it was offered. Huge mistake, btw.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was really out of the ordinary. I had some prepared to reference some difficult cases I'd worked with and there were some typical "How do you deal with problems in your team?" type questions but nothing that was very difficult.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They called a week or so after the interview and offered me exactly what I had asked for in the interview. I was afraid to negotiate because I desperately needed the job but I wish I had because I've since learned from my coworkers who were hired for the same program have a pretty wide variation in pay offers.

    Business Project Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Aetna.

    Interview Details

    I applied online at Aetna. I was contacted within about 10 days to schedule a telephone interview which occurred with the hiring manager and a peer of this position. While the interview was not very structured , there were some pointed questions all of which were relevant to the position requirements and my background and experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was majorly difficult. All questions were relevant. The difficulty with telephone interviews is that you must continuously check for understanding to ensure that you answered the question thoroghly. It is also very difficult to get immediate feedback (body language, facial expressions, etc.) to know if your answers were well received   Answer Question
