TECDP Intern Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cigna in September 2011.
Interview Details – I was invited by an employee. I had a conversation with the TECDP manager and then the direct manager with whom I'd work. They asked me about my interests to determine fit and department preference. The majority of the questions were behavioral in nature. Both of my interviews were over the phone. Be as clear as possible about your interests. In retrospect, I should've taken a position on the business side and not the tech side.
Interview Question – Why re you interested in this company? I was an English major, but was able to use my high school activities to justify my interest in tech Answer Question

Senior Underwriter Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Cigna.
Interview Details – Gave resume at college career fair. Heard back about 2 weeks later. Phone interview was very standard, then another interview at the company headquarters. Two interviews. Standard behavioral questions and going over employment history. They asked several math questions which were easy but if you are not used to doing math in front of someone on the spot you may get flustered and make a mistake. Each interview ended with an open ended math question such as: If you own a window washing business how much would you charge to wash every building in Hartford?

SAS Programmer Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Cigna in November 2011.
Interview Details – The recruiter I was working with set me up with this interview. I drove in, spoke to a few of the programmers on the team for about an hour, and the next day I had their results. Nothing special, although they have a lack of conference rooms so our meeting was done in their cafeteria (which was very nice, but not a great place for an interview).
