Minnetonka, MN

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in February 2010.

Interview Details – Was contacted by a recruiter and after a short chat she set up a phone interview for me. After the initial interview I was asked in for a final interview with the Director of the business unit I was applying for. He sat me down and asked a series of basic interview questions, none that were surprising. He seemed more interested in my character and personality than having me display my skills.

Interview Question – There were none that were unexpected. A lot about my previous work and problem solving. He also told me a lot about the job and guaged my willingness to do the work in the job description.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Accepted iniital offer.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

Interview Details – The hiring and interview process is fairly standard. There were very few surprise questions, although it was still a comprehensive interview. Expect to spend an hour to explain your case. They do let you talk on your own. Don't expect the interviewer to draw the information out from you. If you are shy, then practice presenting your case and giving information.

Interview Question – I don't recall any "difficult" or unexpected questions. There are lots of follow-up questions, so expect to be very detailed about your experiences and how they affected you, your employees, and your customers.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very straightforward. Little room for negotiation. It did take a while, quite drawn out for a position they needed to fill "right away".

Interview Details – The first step of the interview process is a phone interview with a recruiter. He was interested in just one thing. Are you willing to work for a very low wage?

Interview Questions

  • There were no difficult or unexpected questions. The entire panel of interviewers seemed inept.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – During the worst part of the Great Bush recession, there wasn't much negotiation. Compared offer with contractor rates at that time. Requested a raise later.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

Interview Details – Typically there is an initial interview by telephone or in person with one manager to screen for basic compatibility. A second interview typically happens with several managers together or separately, and usually (but not always) face-to-face. There can be a third interview with team leads.

Interview Question – How do you handle difficult people or situations? Give an example.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They wanted to know how to keep me happy, given that salary increases tend to be small. The process was professional, straightforward, and easy.
