I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Molina Healthcare (Long Beach, CA) in April 2015.
I was interviewed at length over the phone, for nearly an hour, by someone who worked in another state. Then they had me do yet another phone interview with one of the architects I would be working with, a few days later. This man had a very strong accent, so the interview didn't flow super smoothly. Finally, I was brought in for a face-to-face. The recruiter thought that there was tremendous interest, and that the face-to-face, the next week, when the manager was in town, was a mere formality. In essence, I virtually had the job. When I got there for the in-person interview, it turned out that no-one at the front-desk/guard even knew who this person was. Good thing I brought the whole printed email trail with me with several other people mentioned and copied on it. Eventually I located this manager and we went in for the interview. It was all much the same as the prior interviews. At the end, the manager mentioned that they were looking at a number of other candidates. He also praised my "manner and bearing," and laughed with me that some prior candidate had done well on the phone, but "fell apart" in person. Now here's where it really got bad. This hiring manager, who lives in another State, utterly defaulted on his obligation to "get back to the recruiter" with feedback. Now, over a month later, I still haven't heard one word either way about anything. The recruiter was completely mystified by the manager's complete lack of responsiveness. The recruiter, who was quite good, had attempted to confirm the face-to-face interview details, and was unable to -- he never received *any* response from this hiring-manager. No confirmation. No feedback. Nothing! Very unprofessional. Molina should fire the hiring-manager. Frankly, anyone who takes up the time of someone in an interview has a moral obligation to give a response with feedback to that person in a timely manner. It's an implicit contract that underlies the interview process. This hiring-manager-who-needs-firing not only defaulted on this obligation, but actually lied to me. He stated to my face that he would get back to the recruiter with his feedback. He never did. On a personal level, I feel that I had a lucky escape. The lack of organization (about who would interview me), coupled with the lack of responsiveness to email and phone calls, and co-workers with a poor grasp of English -- all this points to the IT environment being the kind of place I'd rather not spend my life trying to fix. Give this "shop" a "miss"! That would be my advice.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Molina Healthcare (Long Beach, CA) in March 2015.
The hiring manager contacted me directly to interview. The interview consisted of the manager and then the team members were coming and going throughout the one hour meeting. I was asked a series of questions that went from canned personality questions to technical, and then was given an outdated piece of paper and asked to demonstrate knowledge of database querying. The interview ended with the hiring manager walking me back to HR, parking validated, and then I never heard anything back.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Molina Healthcare (Long Beach, CA).
It went smooth. First, I got a call from a Recruiter and had a phone screening. Then was invited for an in person interview. I was interview by the hiring manager and another employee in the same department. The questions were all relevant and reflected what the job entailed. Even though it took about 2 months before I was given an offer, it overall was still a good experience.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Molina Healthcare (Long Beach, CA).
Took forever to get interview - contacted by Molina recruiter in February and it was June before they scheduled a phone interview (4 months), and then they messed up on the date... so I got called a day early during lunch. Phone interview was an hour-long technical screening with two development leads. I was called back for an in-person interview with their manager. The meeting with the manager went well and I thought the interview was over, but then the two leads showed up and sat down with me for 2 extra hours of technical screening. Very unexpected and unpleasant. Was contacted for another interview with a different group 3 months later. Same scheduling problems - they were half hour late for an hour-long meeting. Again, they launched into a technical screening.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Molina Healthcare (Long Beach, CA).
Process consisted of 3 interviews. 1 with AVP and 2 with Regional Directors. They were not very formal the questions were mainly to match your skill set up with the position.
- How will you influence your direct reports? Answer Question
Negotiation was not great. They try to force a salary on you and it is usually lower than industry standard.

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Molina Healthcare (Long Beach, CA).
Referred from a staffing agency, I had an initial phone interview with one of the hiring managers. During the phone interview I was asked mostly about my previous experience and was given a thorough run through of the job expectations and functions. Face to face interview came two days later. Checked in at the reception 10mins early than my appt and waited for a few minutes before I was told to take the elevator to the 4th floor I believe where I was met by two hiring managers. I was asked the typical interview questions, what would my manager day about me, why should we hire you etc. The hiring managers that interviewed me were very personable and friendly. I got a call a few hours after the interview stating I was being offered the position.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Molina Healthcare (Long Beach, CA) in March 2014.
Contacted by phone after an employee saw my resume. Called in to interview within a few days. Panel of 4 for a two hour interview. Received a call two days later with a job offer. The first phone call was a short phone screen: asked about my resume and then a few technical questions on OOP. They decided to continue forward and scheduled an in-person interview (details sent in an email for confirmation). I interviewed with a panel of four people, one of who was the manager. We took turns asking about my resume and myself. After maybe about 20-30min, they moved onto technical questions. The team asked 4-5 smaller questions and then the manager moved us to the white board for another 4-5 questions. I struggled a few times (the questions were fairly simple in hindsight) as my nervousness increased, but they were kind and helpful whenever I was stuck. I remembered to ask questions and to comment on the things I wrote or what I was thinking. In turn, I was given tips and hints. Having completed the run of technical questions, the manager and I discussed job details and then he showed me around the office/work area and introduced me to the team I would be working with. The in-person interview was roughly two hours long. A few days after the interview, I received a call with an offer. They really enjoyed the interview with me and even raised the initial salary they had offered by quite a lot. However, I opted to decline as the job position wasn't one that I was looking for. There were two downsides: they never told me the job title until I asked (and they had trouble describing the details of the job) and they rushed me for an answer to their offer (I was given one day to think about it) when I told them I was also interviewing with another company. But, all in all, a nice and fast experience. Attire: Business Casual

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Molina Healthcare (Long Beach, CA) in March 2014.
Applied online. Got a phone screen about a week later with the hiring manager. She called 20 minutes late and just asked questions about SAS. Then she just went on talking bad about her former employer and complained about her current workers. After the interview, I had no intentions to proceed with the interview process since I didn't want to work with her. Extremely unprofessional, I was very surprised with her etiquette.

Just one phone interview with the manager. 20 minutes of blah, blah. No feedback from her. 3 months later, I was awarded the contract. No face to face at all. The project was in flames and they needed a firefighter ASAP.

My head-hunter did all the dirty work.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Molina Healthcare (Long Beach, CA) in October 2013.
Contacted to attend a 1 hour on site interview. Interviewed with two PMs. The hiring manager got called into another meeting. I was asked to come back to speak with the hiring manager but Molina hired another person. Molina is very unprofessional.
