    TECDP Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bloomfield, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bloomfield, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. 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 Questions
    • 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

    Application Details

    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 Questions
    • 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. 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.

    Technology Early Career Development Program (TECDP) Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Storrs, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Storrs, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. 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 Questions
    • 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

    Business Project Senior Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    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.
