    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview

    Well planned interview cycle, but a little on the overdone side. Felt like interviewers were just working a behavioral based question template provided by Human Capital, which took up all of the scheduled time so no opportunity to talk about the actual job requirements/description. 4 formal interviews totalling approx. 4+ hours. All by phone. Entire cycle took 30 days/1 month to complete.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview

    The process of hiring at UHG is very efficient. The recruiters work hard to bring talent in the organization in a timely manner. You're more likely to go through a phone interview with a recruiter first and then with the hiring manager. The process is structured, but is pretty informal and intuitive. This worked for me.

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate for a long time, the job sounded exciting and i was offered the top of my range right away.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (New Brunswick, NJ) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Mostly phone interviews. Met hiring manager and got job offer 2 weeks later. It was basically a series of 1:1 phone interviews since the company employees are all home-based. All total it was 5 phone interviews and the final interview in person with hiring manager. The process took about 3 months from when I was contacted by the recruiter to when I accepted the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Very strange that I did not get "unexpected" questions. Easiest interview process I have experienced. Mostly conversational.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Was able to negotiate sign on bonus and equity to match what I was giving up on prior employer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Minnetonka, MN) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Submitted application through UHG (Unitedhealth Group) website. Contacted by recruiter. All interviews, except a final screening were done over the telephone. Hiring process was extended because they wanted to ensure that there was a consulting engagement available before being hired. This is certainly fine, but I was not told what the delay was about.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview questions were very basic. "Do you have experience doing X?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was focused more on start date. There was no signing bonus offered. Salary offer was based on my expressed expectation prior to the offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Minnetonka, MN) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Contacted by internal HR recruiter who setup the formal interview process. Met with VP and two potential coworker. Straight forward questions and non-adversarial environment. I was an internal referral so it was a shortened process. Fair and up front, open minded group that was not looking to "grill" a candidate in order to look good to peers.

    Interview Questions

    • None. I liked "Where do you see healthcare going in the next five to ten years?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    All handled through the recruiter. They accepted my counter offer.

    Interview

    The pre-interview process went very smoothly. I was asked to a do a series of phone interviews and this was a little disorganized - a few missed connections. I finally connected with all the right people, and was ultimately brought in for an in person interview. Then.... job put on hold. I received another job offer from a different company shortly after and let them know I was no longer available.

    Interview Questions

    • Not really most difficult but the job required a re-lo and I was asked a number of questions to confirm my interest in moving to the area.   Answer Question
