    Director, Account Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Healthways in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and heard back within a few days requesting a screening call. Screening call went well and recruiter indicated I would move to the next level.

    Questions during the interview were appropriate for the position. There was a focus on basic skills, client management, team management and development, experience working with large complex clients.

    Followed up but near heard back from the recruiter or the company. Disappointed at the lack of follow up after a very positive initial experience.

    Health Education Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Healthways.

    Interview Details

    It took about three weeks after applying to get an initial phone screen. It went very well and I'm moving on yo speak with the manager. No indication of salary will be given. They will only ask your requirements and let you know if you are in the range or not. Seems like a way to low ball yourself. We shall see what happens!

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing unusual. Why are you a good fit? What is your experience? What can you bring yo the table? Generic interview questions.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Underwent 3 separate phone interviews; first with the in-house recruiter, the second and third with the regional area manager that would be directly overseeing the position.

On the third scheduled time we spoke and she asked basic questions about my previous experience. She then scheduled me to come in and meet with the team for a second interview. They had a series of questions about behavior change and specific health issues.

    Health Coach Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Healthways.

    Interview Details

    Initially, I was contacted through email in response to my application, but there were several indications that it was a standard email that they were sending to several people at the same time. I set up for a 20 min phone interview with HR that went very well. The associate was prompt and it was generally pleasant, nothing too in depth. I set up for a face to face interview while on that call. The in person interview was quite different. The front desk receptionist was rude and on personal calls throughout my wait in the lobby. I took a quick typing and internet test. The HR associate was roughly 15 min late and commented that she couldn't remember if she had an interview scheduled or not. There was a set of standard questions that she asked me. She then took me on a tour of the facility. While walking through, I was struck by the very casual attire of the staff, and also by the general demeanor of some staff members. They did not seem pleased to see me or we're judging me, it was very awkward. I got a similar vibe from the Heath coach lead who came in to interview me next. She asked me a standard set of questions and clearly wanted text book answers. I left feeling good about the interview and was told when I would receive an offer. When that time came, I followed up with the HR associate and got no response. Two days later (a Friday and late afternoon) I received a generic email saying that I was no longer under consideration.
