Application Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bloomfield, CT
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bloomfield, CT
Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cigna.

Interview Details

The Interview process was very well organized. I had to fly in from out of state. I had to interview with 3 managers and the technical questions were detailed and were relevant to my field of work. They had to file a Visa and the HR group had a very good idea of the workings of the INS (Immigration and Naturalization Services as it was known then.

    Application Developer Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Cigna in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    CIGNA tends to take a long time to hire employees. I believe that is because the background check takes a long time, so don't loose hope about landing the job if you feel like you've impressed the interviewer. CIGNA tends to ask questions to see if you will be a good behavioral match for the job role you are posting for. Every position I've had with CIGNA involved interview questions about my strengths, weaknesses, past problem resolution and future carrer goals. Be prepared to answer these questions, and to give an honest and, if possible, surprising answer. I've also conducted quite a few interviews for CIGNA, and one of the key differentiators is the candidate's ability to stand out.

    CIGNA is a very diverse company, so it is a good idea to emphasize your comfort working in a diverse and respectful environment. As a company, CIGNA can feel very compartmentalized, so be sure to ask questions about the job you are interviewing for so that you are sure to understand the job. An application development position in one department is not the same job as an application development position in another department.

    During the interview process, you'll find that the interviewers are generally unable to provide you with details about the salary and bonus for the job. See additional details on this topic in the negotiation phase.

    Other details: The best place to find a job with CIGNA is thier website (www. cigna.com); CIGNA rarely posts jobs in a newspaper. Typically candidates are contacted by phone first for a brief screening, and if they pass the screening they are brought in-office for an interview. It is not uncommon for second-round inteviews with more senior staff members.

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation is possible with CIGNA, within a certain range. When CIGNA posts a position, they've determined a "market value" for the position, which means that they've done research in the area to determine the average salary for similar jobs with other employers. The dollar figure they'll present you with is typically lower than this market value. If you are exerpienced, you may be able to leverage a few thousand dollars a year more out of the company (perhaps $5,000 more per year maximum for positions in the $60k to $100k salary range). Later in your career with CIGNA your raises will be based on your market value; if you are making less than your market value, your raises will be bigger until you reach that market value.
