Interview

Got recruited at campus. Attended career fair, 2 rounds of interviews and was given offer letter. Round 1 was behavioral and round 2 was more of a discussion on past experience, 'fit' . Interview questions were standard. Nothing unexpected or out of the ordinary.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Chicago, IL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Right from the start, I was able to meet with one of OptumInsight's consultants who took the time to not only communicate with me via e-mail, but also meet with me in person to discuss the topic of consulting and life as a OptumInsight employee. After that, I was able to have a phone interview that went fairly well. The woman was very amiable. Following that, I had an in-office interview where I met with several OptumInsight employees. Despite of their busy schedules and an oncoming snow storm, they came to the office eager to speak with me. Some advice that I'd offer to candidates would be to remain calm and be passionate about healthcare.

    • Why do you want to be a consultant?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    As an entry-level consultant, I received a fair offer, which I accepted. The company does offer some opportunity in how you invest your money and insurance options. Overall, I think you get a decent offer, especially in today's job market.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UnitedHealth Group in November 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online on a Saturday. An HR rep contacted me the following Monday for a phone interview. She interviewed me later that afternoon. The HR interview consisted of me telling her about my background, skills, and why I wanted to work for UHG. The HR rep advised she would recommend to the hiring manager to interview me. I had an interview with the manager that Friday. The interview consisted of a one hour skills assessment and one hour of behavioral interview questions. After interviewing with the hiring manager I interviewed with her boss and her bosses boss. The process only took 2 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • Give me an example of a time you went above and beyond to get the job done.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The HR rep let it slip that they always offer a 10% increase over what you currently make so beware when releasing that information.

    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at UnitedHealth Group in January 2011.

    Interview

    Had two interviews, both over the phone, both went great...they kept me waiting for over six weeks before the recruiter emailed me to let know how great I did, and that I was in the top candidate pool for selection, however, a week later...the position was offered to a current UHC employee.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview with the recruitor was laid back, almost conversational. Discussions revolved around my experiences and why I was leaving my current position,   Answer Question
    • The second interview with the hiring managers was grueling....there were 15-17 'canned' and timed questions.   Answer Question
