    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cigna (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Super day at their office, was about 2 panel interviews with 2 different senior analysts, a presentation, job shadow, and virtual training which wasn't really anything. We were in a group so they called us out per schedule. The interviewers were pretty standard with behavioral/analytical questions. I was a bit disappointed because the presentation seemed like the interviewers wanted something more laid back instead of something more serious.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cigna.

    Interview

    Very slow through the Talent Consultant process and it was very frustrating. The online application process was fairly easy. However the job titles are extremely mis-leading. I passed over reviewing the job prior to apply because the title didn't seem to apply to me. Once opening the job I thought I would be perfect for the job and interviewing. The interviews were great, but the beginning stages with the Talent Consultant teams were very time consuming and delayed. The offer process was also very time consuming.

    Interview

    Very business like. No effort to make me feel comfortable during the 10 question behaviorial interview. The interviewer tried to be as intimidating as she could and made sure I knew that SHE was in charge. I don't scare easily so I smiled a lot and answered the questions.

Then HR sent my number to the hiring manager who then contacted me for an in person interview. Panel interview with six questions. They let you go over them and then they begin. They look for very brief but concise answers. Was offered the job few days later.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cigna (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter that did the phone screen (from Philadelphia) was nice and professional. The circumstances she described did not happen on site. The interviewer was 15 minutes late, left early and appeared disinterested. She was not prepared and though the recruiter said a case worker would join the interview, one was not introduced or present.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cigna.

    Interview

    Applied through UConn's career site. Received a first interview on campus. Asked typical behavioral questions + why I was interested in Supply Chain Management. Received a call about a week after saying I would need to go for a second interview. Month or two goes by, they were slightly disorganized with scheduling, but after an email I set up a date for after christmas. Second interview was in bloomfield with two Director's. The interview was more of a conversation about your resume no actual questions. Just to see if they like you, and you have the computer skills (excel) that they're looking for.

    Negotiation

    Negotiated 50 cents higher of a salary, could have probably gotten more but I gave in very easily.
