I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in December 2013.
Interview Details – I was contacted by an outside staff aug consulting company. I was working in an another state at the time so I did a phone interview with a panel of employees. In my experience UHG IT uses consulting companies to bring on people for the first six months. They evaluate your work over that six months before deciding to bring you on as a FTE.
Interview Question – On boarding process is not very smooth. I've seen several very good people struggle in the first months trying to get plugged into the projects in a meaningful way. Answer Question

Interview Details –
Interview process was really quick. I was finished with both interviews and offered the job within a week and a half! The phine interview was an hour long lioe I was told it was going to be. He asked me a lot of questions. "Name a time when...." research the company and write down some examples so you're not studdering when thinking of an answer.
The second interview was quick and painless. It was a face to face interview. We went over my resume, and she only asked me two "name a time when...." questions. It was over within 20mins :)
And they called me the next day and offered me the job.
I just did a background and drug test and waiting for the results. I dont know how long that'll take though.

Interview Details – I was very uncomfortable as my questions were not answered properly and sounded scripted. Why would a Fortune 500 company or any company want an employee to pay and get reimbursed for software. Did not feel like it was a real offer. Was this real or scam
Interview Question – Just getting the information about what the job was was the most difficult part of the process and in the same breathe getting the position. I am going to be watching my bank or other personal information if this is a scam. View Answer

Interview Details –
The process starts with a phone screen from Recruiting. It's simple, generic questions intended to prove that I am not an idiot and can hold a basic conversation. Then the hiring manager does a phone screen. This lasted about 30 min. The manager asked about my experience with Excel, the size of the data sets I work with, and some questions about my work background.
Then you wait. About a week later, I got called for an in-person interview. This consisted of three separate interviewers: the hiring manager, the director above her, and an unrelated director for an outsider's perspective. The interviews were about 30 min long. I meshed well with the hiring manager, the director kind of scared me (funny bc he's a great guy), and the unrelated director just talked a lot, so I let him run with it.
Then you wait again. While waiting for an answer, I received a job offer at another company. I really liked UHG, so I emailed the hiring manager to ask for a status update. I let her know that I had another offer waiting. She wrote me back first thing the next morning with an urgent, "Call me." Turns out, she had told Recruiting to offer me the job a full two days before. She was shocked that I hadn't been notified yet. She rushed to get the paperwork processed because Recruiting took so long.
Honestly, if it wasn't for that polite status request, they would have lost me as a candidate. Recruiting is known to move slowly, and I'm sure they lose great talent because of it.
Interview Question – The interviews were not complicated at all. None of this "critical behavioral questions" mumbo jumbo. The interviewers just asked about my relevant background and what I could bring to the table. From my experience, I don't think anyone preps the interviewers with HR techniques. This was one of the least stressful interview experiences. (Aside from the snail's pace of Recruiting!) View Answer
Negotiation Details – Recruiting provided the offer package, and I was disappointed in the salary. I went to the hiring manager and explained that I had been given another job offer for a significantly higher salary. I asked if we could negotiate a few grand more. She checked with the director and got back to me with a 'yes.' Unbeknownst to me though, Recruiting is supposed to handle the negotiating process. When I informed the recruiter of what I had done, she told me that I could have the entire offer rescinded if Recruiting didn't approve it. I thought this was odd since the director of the department approved my salary. How could Recruiting say no to him? I think the recruiter was insulted that I had gone around her, but frankly, she dragged her feet during the whole process, and I had to make a quick decision given that I had another offer waiting for an answer.
