    Senior Underwriter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bloomfield, CT
    Anonymous Employee in Bloomfield, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – 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?

    Anonymous Employee in Bloomfield, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cigna in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Was an employee referral - had an initial phone screening with the internal recruiter, phone interview with the recruiter's manager. I then participated in 4 interviews in person with various leaders (AVP, VP level) including the hiring manager. Impressed by the company leadership - everyone spoke highly of the executive leadership and growth potential of the company. Culture seemed friendly and engaged. Warm reception from the people I met.

    Sent thank you notes to everyone - followed up with the recruiter the following week - no response. Followed up via phone and email a number of times over the following few weeks - never any response from the recruiter. Impressed by the company - not impressed by the recruiting team.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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).

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cigna in October 2011.

    The process consisted of three interview rounds. The first was a standard interview, 2:1. No difficult questions, mostly just talked about myself and what was on my resume. The second round was four 30 minute 1:1 interviews. The questions were a little more challenging here. Some asked what you would do in a given real life circumstances. The third round was more 1:1 interviews where you talked more about yourself and your skills.

    TECDP Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bloomfield, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.
