Interview Details – For such a big company the hiring process went pretty quick. From the time I submitted my resume to the time I received an offer was about 5 weeks. I interviewed with about 6 people, including the HR phone interview. Everyone was very nice, very friendly. They talked about the culture, which is great.
Interview Question – They had a test in the application process to see if you're a good fit into their culture. It wasn't hard, you just need to be yourself. I think more companies should do this. View Answer

Interview Details –
After an HR phone screen for this position, I was contacted a day later to set up an in-person interview. The HR person mentioned a few times, but when I indicated I was working and needed other times, she was flexible and able to best schedule me.
The interview itself was a panel interview with four managers. They were all pleasant, and shortly into the interview gave me a written SQL test to ensure I really knew SQL. I verbally told them what the statements were doing, and they were pleased. Besides asking my background relevant to the position, I was asked about 4 behavioral questions (see sample below). The interview went fairly smoothly but was definitely structured, and ended exactly by one hour.

Interview Details – When through a rigorous interview process (4 interview). I had to conduct a presentation as well. It seemed that the interview panel was ill-prepared in reviewing my resume and it appeared they were looking for someone to clean house. So, I guess I did not meet expectations and was not offered the job. I think it would have been a great company to work for.
Interview Question – Have you terminated someone before? This is a common question and yes I have; however there is a protocol and I don't think they have a particular standard to follow. It could be that have new departments and businesses merging. Answer Question

Interview Details – After my initial web submission to UnitedHealth Groups career site I was contacted via email by the recruiter responsible for initial filtering. They scheduled a phone interview with me for the following week. This was a basic interview gathering additional qualifications required by the job and a personality profile. Later this same week the recruiter emailed me again to schedule a second phone interview with the hiring manager. This was a traditional phone interview asking job specific questions. It was nice to speak to someone directly involved with the positional for the first time. Week three rolled around and the recruiter emailed me to schedule an in person interview. I interviewed the hiring manager, a peer manager of his, their director, and two of my potential peers. Their questioning was to gain insight if I was a good fit personality wise and if I met the technical requirements. The following week I was made an offer.
Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate, but through the recruiter, and at any point the offer could be pulled if I replied with a counter offer. I accepted the original offer because it was worth the work in my opinion.

Interview Details – Online application, took 3 weeks for 1st phone interview with recruiter. After 1 week was called for interview with hiring manager. Interview was behavioral and took about 1 hr. Received detailed information about the interviewer as well as the job description. Interviewer gave positive feedback during the interview process making me much more comfortable answering the questions. Questions were not skill based.

Interview Details – The initial contacts and setup of our phone interview were great and gave a professional impression. The interviewer called me on time and her estimate of our call duration was accurate.
