Prior Authorization Interview

Prior Authorization

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Express Scripts.

Interview Details – It took me a long time to get an interview with ESI. After applying for this position online a recruiter contacted me a few days later and did a 15 min. phone interview asking about my self and a few behavior based interview questions. At the end the recruiter told me she would me to continue to the next round of interviews and we scheduled at the next opening I was available. My interview was all behavior based questions and I was offered the position the next day by the same recruiter.

Interview Question – ESI uses behavior based interview questions (tell me about a time you were put in "blank" situation and how did you deal with it). Go into your interview thinking about different situation you have been in with your prior/current work experience and be prepared to describe them.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I attempted to negotiate pay but was told that was not an option for this position. The recruiter told me that it is always important to ask because you never know what is available.

Senior Account Manager Interview

Senior Account Manager

I applied in-person and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Express Scripts.

Interview Details – Slow response and follow up.. I had to initiate next steps or inquire about the latest update. The process was not only painfully slow, but required many layers of interviews which lasted weeks in between.

Interview Question – Nothing unique, and interviewer said they are constantly running from call to call. Client meetings are done on the fly due to lack of time... I could sense the stress and imbalance in his voice.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The interview process was terrible. It made me question the overall integrity of the company and how they conduct themselves.

Irrelevant Interview

Irrelevant

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Express Scripts in February 2014.

Interview Details – Interview process (scheduling and completion) went fast but the wait for an answer takes way too long. For needing to fill these positions in a hurry as they imply in the interview process, the higher ups seem to not value the time of the hiring manager or the candidates unless it's a position they need filled in their direct area.
It now comes across very unprofessional and inconsiderate to hold up their own for so long as well as not at least providing an update to the candidates as well.
The process started out very well then the experience declined very fast.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself five years from now working for Express Scripts?   View Answer

Patient Care Advocate Interview

Patient Care Advocate
Charlotte, NC

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Express Scripts in June 2013.

Interview Details – Someone from HR calls and gives you a brief overview of the position. Asks if you're still interested in the position and sets up the interview. Interview consists of about 4-5 STAR, behavioral questions. Once completed, they make the decision on the spot! Then they have you fill out tax forms and get copies of your ID and Social Security card. They also have you fill out a significant amount of paperwork about pay, training, hours you can work, time off, etc. After this process, they contact you via email to let you know the next steps. Seems like a great deal, but it took about an hour for me.

Interview Question – Think of a time when you had to evaluate a situation you didn't understand at first and what did you do to overcome that and what realization did you come to. (something along those lines)   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.

Pros: “Only thing that would be remotely close to a pro is that you get paid weekly, and you'll have a 40 hour per week schedule.” Full Review
