    Senior Clinical Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I went through four different interviews: one with the recruiter (via phone), one via webcam, one with the hiring manager (via phone), and one with the hiring manager's peer (via phone). I found the whole interview process to be awkward, impersonal and less than professional. By the time I talked to the hiring manager's peer, I had decided that if I was offered the job I would decline (they did not call me back). I never really felt like I connected with any of the interviewers.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Extremely easy interview process. Spoke to a local recruiter who asked typical questions. Tell me about a complex situation you have encountered and how did you resolve it? Why should we hire you? I was then set up for a face to face interview for the following day. Interview was so much fun , extremely informal, more of a friendly conversation and she was very upfront about the complexities possibly involved withe position.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at UnitedHealth Group in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    assessment and phone interview. The entire process took about 4 weeks. I don't think this is a great company by far!! The recruiter was rude, condescending, discriminatory and etc.... I know a quite a few people that work for this company. They told me that their department does not act rude, condescending, or discriminatory!! i think it all depends on the recruiter that you talk to!! i was just not lucky enough to get a nice person from this company.

    Interview Details

    Two rounds of interviews. First one on campus with behavioral questions. Then two rounds of interviews on site on the same day. Same type of questions. Also during the second round they give you a company overview and the site tour. Breakfast and lunch is provided. Interviewers were all very friendly. Seems like a good culture!

    Manager Applications Development Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UnitedHealth Group in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    From introduction screening with the UHG recruiter through interview with hiring manager the time it took was approximately 2 weeks.

    The screening from the recruiter was simple but pertinent questions were asked to make sure a fit had potential. Follow-up was slow in coming but an interview was set up with the hiring manager.

    The interview with the hiring manager was much less than expected and anticipated. After a short introduction I was asked to traverse through my resume through all prior positions starting from the time I graduated from my University. The interviewer seemed to have little input or questions. Overall a disappointing experience.

    My hunch is the hiring manager already had a candidate already in mind and this interview was just an exercise to check off a necessary hiring check box.

    Interview Questions
    • There were absolutely zero difficult questions. It was unexpected that I would need to basically read through my resume' as one would expect the hiring person to have perhaps at least looked at it prior to an interview.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Learned about the position through an intern reception where I gave them my resume. I was contacted a few days later to come in for an on site interview. After that it took approximately a week to hear back from them. I did not get the position unfortunately but the process seemed pretty standard.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview Details

    I filled the application online. After a week I got an email from HireVue to take an online one way digital interview. This is easy step. All you need is computer with webcam and lot of confidence. They provide you enough time to rehearse with practice questions. Please make sure of your background. Wall should be plain and not busy, as this video is watched by lot of hiring people within the company. Make sure that you are presentable as you would be for face to face interview. Also make sure the room is well lighted ( no flashy light behind you or window). They asked 3 simple questions. First, Explain when you had a difficult or complex situation at work and how you handled it. Second, how would you handle multiple project with multiple deadline. Third, a time when you have to start a project from ground zero and how you did that. I have yet to hear back from the UHG recruiter.
