    Interview Details

    I submitted my job application via school's job posting site. And, I got an opportunity to speak with the recruiter on the campus. The recruiter asked mostly basic questions like "Tell me about yourself" and "Why do you want to work at Cigna". There were no difficult questions.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Cigna in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    It is a slow process. They are not in any hurry to fill a position, but who can blame them there is a pile of talent to choose from. They sort through the 100's of applicants they receive each day. which is a catch 22. they have so many applicants to review they are not able to provide feedback. Good luck in the search.

    The process took 3 months - interviewed at Cigna in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Met at the University campus recruiting event. Had an interview the following week with two cigna representatives on campus. Then, one and a half months later got the email inviting me to HeadQuarters in Connecticut. Went to Connecticut in January, had dinner that night with a bunch of candidates and the Regional VPs of Cigna, as well as current Sales Reps. The next morning, had 3 one on one interviews with Regional VPS, and had a Simulation with a group of 4 other potential candidates. The simulation is basically testing your ability to sell against the other candidates. After leaving Headquarters, I received the offer a little over a week later (probably like 10 days).

    Interview Questions
    • You receive a document with information about a client looking for insurance. Then you receive infomation about the plan that you are supposed to push. You give a presentation for 4 minutes to all the VPs of why your plan is the best. Then you have to discuss with the other candidates who all have different plans and come to a consensus of which plan to go with. You want your plan to win.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I did not try to negotiate but I would imagine that you could. The pay was really good so I chose not to.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Cigna in February 2008.

    Interview Details

    Very long process. Definitely one of the most intense interviews I have ever had. We were flown out to Pennsylvania for a dinner, then the next day began an 8 hour day of interviewing. There was a group discussion/presentation with some of the other applicants, then 4 separate 1:1 interviews. Also group question and answer. Overall very long and hard.

    Interview Questions
    • We had to decide which insurance company to recomment to a customer. Each of us had one and we had to discuss in as group of 3 which one we should recommend based on the customer's needs.   View Answer

    Met a representative at my college and had an interview. I was then sent to a group interview where we had 1 on 1 interviews, as well as a mock presentation and negotiation. The process was very thorough and they definitely test to make sure you're a good fit.
