    Business Analyst II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Centene.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty straightforward with three interview stages. The HR called to understand what I did, why I wanted to move and salary expectations etc. Then I had another telephone interview with the Director who explained what he expects and asked about my background and what I did. Final stage was at the office where I spoke at length with the director and the team for about 2 hours with regards to expectations and what I can bring to the team. It was a good experience and nothing out of the pocket. If you have done similar duties, the interview wouldn't be difficult.

    Negotiation Details
    They offered the minimum I requested and did not give room for much negotiation.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Centene in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position and it took about 2 weeks to be contacted. I had an initial phone screening and then a follow up phone interview with the director of the department. It would have been an in person but I was an out of state candidate. The interview went really well, in my opinion, and I was advised that I would be contacted for a 2nd interview.

    IT Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Centene.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my school career center and got an interview like a week later. Interview was all behavior based with no technical questions. For my interview, it was two people that asks you questions from their department and the last person to ask you questions, in a different room, is the HR person. The only down part is it takes weeks for them to follow up with you, so you will have to check up with HR person or the company's recruiter to make sure they didn't just drop you. Just be prepared for lots of behavior based questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Described a time where you had a team conflict and how did you resolve it?
      Tell me about yourself?

    Compliance Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Centene in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and three weeks later was called by a recruiter to schedule a phone screen. The phone screen went well. He/she asked some basic questions regarding compensation and experience. I was submitted to the hiring manager and was scheduled for a video conference interview. That interview consisted of scripted behavioral questions which were awkward and repetitive. They seemed interested and encouraged me to follow up. I followed up with the recruiter her responsiveness was shoddy. I later followed up with other contacts with whom I had some rapport. Again I was not given any definitive timeline or rejection. As a courtesy to my going through two interviews including a very long interrogatory regarding my experience I expected better follow-up and more responsiveness to candidates (including rejections). I would probably not apply for any other openings with Centene or any affiliates as the level of professionalism was mediocre at best giving a good indication that probably working there would be a little chaotic.
