    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cigna.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted about a month after do to a phone interview. Very unexpected and on the spot but I did well. 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – 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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cigna.

    Interview

    Brought in for an interview at a campus location, was asked a lot of behavioral questions, as well as management experience questions, the next round of interviews was at the end of January, so it was a long process of interviewing and knowing if you made it or not.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of questions regarding management experience.
      Questions such as: What happened in a time you managed a group where group members disagreed with your choice? What makes you a great leader? What are effective ways you've managed people? Also had a few behavioral questions, but those are to be expected during any first round interview.

    Interview

    Phone interview. Asked basic questions about what I knew about underwriting and Cigna. Also asked me some "what would I do if?" behaviorial questions and some mental math questions, too. The entire interview lasted around 30 minutes and I thought that I did well. I did not hear back from Cigna and I checked in with my interviewer to see if I made it to round #2 (an in-person interview)and she told me that I should hear back from Human Resources. 3 weeks later (5 weeks after my phone interview) I heard that I did not get the job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Cigna.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with recruiter, then 30-minute phone screen with hiring manager. That was followed by an onsite interview with the manager and 3 peers. Each told me about their role on the team and what they envisioned for role for which they were hiring.

    Interview Questions

    • The team had been burned before by someone whose actual experience didn't live up to their claims. The manager asked me to look at some output of descriptive statistics from a quantitative study and describe what the output meant. One peer had me read a summary of focus group results and list pertinent highlights. Another peer asked me to role play a meeting with an internal client regarding their research project needs. It was a little intense, but perfectly reasonable for what the job required.   Answer Question
