    I applied online – interviewed at Aetna.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Aetna.

    Interview

    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

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Aetna in December 2014.

    Interview

    Got the interview by meeting with the recruiter through a university career fair. I never got past the phone interview, however. The interview was conversational and mostly behavioral. It took them a over a month to get back to me for the second-round. In the end, I knew I wouldn't have gotten it since I don't have any intern experience in the actuarial field even though I passed two exams.

    I applied online – interviewed at Aetna (Chicago, IL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    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.
