Associate: Rotational Development Program Interview

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

Very Difficult Interview

Business Project Senior Specialist Interview

Business Project Senior Specialist
Chicago, IL

I applied online - interviewed at Cigna in November 2013.

Interview Details – Sent my resume out and got a call the next day to set up a phone interview. I was very excited. But the process itself was confusing. I was emailed a phone number with a special conference access code, which I thought was for the interview panel itself, but it turned out that I had to call that number myself for an interview. Because of that, it started 8 minutes later than scheduled after someone from the team emailed me and asked me if I was still available.

It was a miscommunication that didn't bode well.

I was interviewed by five different people over the phone, and it was the most difficult interview I had up to this point. I felt like I was in a shooting gallery as they shot their questions at me! It was good practice, and also made me realize I wasn't exactly a good fit for the team or company culture. One of the guys on the team was quite condescending when I asked him what a typical workday was there. Oh, there are no typical workdays! Okay, dude. I'm glad it keeps you on your toes! I did have a better rapport with a couple other people on the team, but I didn't think it would be the best fit for me.

Of course, they said they'd be in touch in about a week, but I didn't hear back from them. Typical. Not exactly a loss, as I realized that I wasn't comfortable working for that company, anyway.

Claims Specialist Interview

Claims Specialist
Dallas, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cigna in June 2010.

Interview Details – I filled out an application online and had a reference from an employee. I got a call back with a quick 20 minute screening, and was then sent to a face-to-face interview. Interview was with two managers for that position and asked several behavioral type question. "Tell me about a time" questions.

Interview Question – The "tell me about a time" questions are tough. You really need to think about specific examples.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I think there was more room for me to discuss salary increases, but I just graduated college and was just happy to get an offer.

Underwriter Interview

Underwriter
Overland Park, KS

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Cigna in November 2013.

Interview Details – It was a 4 stage interview all in one day. You will meet with 2 senior underwriters, then 2 separate panels of underwriters at that location. Typical interview questions, but be ready for the problem solving and analytical questions. The only downside was you will not be compensated for traveling expenses to come to the interview.

Interview Question – how many golf balls fit in a school bus? (not numerical, rather problem solving and seeing how detailed you will answer)

You have a 3 gallon bucket and a 5 gallon bucket. You need to get exactly 4 gallons of water in the 5 gallon bucket by only using the two buckets given. How do you do this?
