TECDP Intern Interview

TECDP Intern
Bloomfield, CT

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

Difficult Interview

Claims Manager Interview

Claims Manager

I applied online - interviewed at Cigna in February 2014.

Interview Details – Behavioral based interview questions, panel style interview. Took about an hour long. Everyone was very nice, but asked a lot of behavioral questions that really will make you think. This is an interview that you must prepare for. They will also ask a percentage math questions, such as what is 60% of 300 or something along those lines.

Interview Question – Tell me what you know about the company. Do your research   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Still in the background check phase. The background check is so stringent. The company they use to conduct the background check digs really really deep. It's like you're applying for a job in the CIA or FBI.

Associate: Rotational Development Program

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cigna.

Interview Details – Had a 30-45 minute on-campus interview with two recruiters currently in the program. Questions were mainly behavioral. Make sure to research their departments and give solid answers for why you'd like to rotate through them. Overall, the recruiters were very nice, but the work didn't seem to be all that interesting to me.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you dealt with a difficult teammate.   Answer Question

Technology Early Career Development Program (TECDP) Intern Interview

Technology Early Career Development Program (TECDP) Intern
Storrs, CT

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cigna.

Interview Details – It started as an on campus interview screening process. I met with two Cigna employees for a half hour block. They asked me mostly behavioral questions such as, "What experiences have you had working in a team?", "What challenges did you face while working with a team and how did you actively participate in overcoming those challenges". They didn't really inquire much about Computer Science related subjects as far as what has been your biggest/most complex assignment and explain the thought process you had while tackling it.

After that they contacted me directly with a program offer which I accepted.

Interview Question – I think I answered this in my overview of the Hiring/Interview process. Most of the questions were behavioral to see if the candidate would be a good fit for the program.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiating took place since it was my first internship offer
