I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Coventry Health Care in February 2013.
Interview Details – Had an initial HR screening, then a very detailed personality assesment online test, then a phone interview with the hiring manager, then an in-person interview at their Burlington, MA premises. Interviewed for about an hour initially with the hiring manager again, then had a panel interview with 3 other peers and slightly senior people.
Interview Question – Not a very technical interview; more about how I would handle inter-departmental conflict and issues around getting my work done. A lot of questions were around 'what if' business scenarios. Some SQL questions, but most other questions were very generic. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Coventry Health Care in November 2009.
Interview Details –
I am a supervisor so this is a good questions for me to answer.
1). You will apply for the job through the company website
2). HR will call you to set up an interview if they think you will be a good fit for the job
(For some jobs, more entry level, you might have to take a test before being interviewed, such as a data entry test or customer sevice test, this information will probably be given in the job description)
3). You will interview with HR and the manager or supevisor of the departments same day
4). When going for the interview they will tell you a little bit more about the job and what they are looking for
5). They are looking for STARS. When you answer a questions they want you to be able to tell the Sitution/Task/Action/Results. Your rated lower if you do not give a full star, for example you don't tell them what action you took or what the result was.
The questions differ based upon the job you are applying for but typically its tell me a time or what would you do type of questions.
6). The STARS are important but based upon my experience supervisor and managers are trying to determine if you will be a good fit for the job. If you have the work experience, showing a positive and friendly attitude will go far.

Most questions are on the lines, "Tell me a time", same types of questions asked by most company's. Any unexpected Questions will come from the manager who wants to ask a question not on the list of questions given to us.

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Coventry Health Care in April 2011.
Interview Details – The application process was lengthy but not intolerable. The actual interview process was considerably long considering most companies have three, maybe four interviews. Expect at least 4 or 5 interviews with repeating questions every step of the way.
Interview Question – All questions were behavioral, i.e.: "Tell me about a time you went out of your way to assist a customer; how did it turn out?" or "Tell me about a time you felt that you failed at something; what would you change about it?" View Answer
Negotiation Details – Negotiation was a very smooth process and probably one of the best things about the company in general

Negotiation Details – No negotation
I applied online and interviewed at Coventry Health Care.
Interview Details – Received a call from a recruiter within 3 days of submitting my resume. They set up a first phone interview with much urgency, scheduling within a week. It went well and they set up a second interview. That too went well, again with some urgency and a short time frame for a decision. After a final interview with a VP, I was told it was down to three candidates of which I was one. Weeks went by and the VP that interviewed me would not respond to my follow up calls or emails. Finally, after being told by her assistant that a decision would be made soon, my inquiries were forwarded on to the recruiter that originally contacted me. They informed me the position was offered to another applicant. The first Iinterview went well as did the second. However, the questions asked of me seemed too general at times and did not explore my qualifications for the position as thoroughly as I would have expected considering my extensive experience in directing similar iniatives on a regional and national scale.

After that I was set up with an hour long phone interview with the hiring manager. On the day the hiring manager called me and first explained what the expectations were for the candidate then asked me to explain how I fit the position. I was also asked questions like "tell me about a situation when you had to deal with an unexpected situation with a project and user and how you overcame it”. After the interview I haven’t heard anything. I called the recruiter and sent emails multiple times but didn't receive any response.

Interview Question – Didnt go through traditional interview Answer Question
Negotiation Details – not traditional
I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Coventry Health Care in January 2013.
Interview Details –
The overall process from the initial contact to the face-to-face interview was 2 months. There was a phone screen with very general questions but had some good input regarding the team structure and the specific area where they wanted to hire someone. The HR contact was very good, keeping touch as needed during the process.
The face-interview was scheduled at a strange time (5:00 PM), and of the 3 people that I was supposed to talk to only 1 was available (the phone screen and a person whose name was new to me and greeted me with a frown when I shook his hand). The new person asked all of the questions, including many non-sequitors like "are you saying you were a salesman in your previous role" as a senior project manager and commented "I guess you had a long Christmas break" when talking about the month of December after I left my previous job at the end of November. At that point I knew this person had another candidate in mind and were just going through the motions to avoid any good responses.
