Difficult Interview

Community Health Worker Interview

Community Health Worker

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in June 2014.

Interview Details – The interview was NOT easy.... they are now doing behavioral interviews with open-ended questions about a hypothetical scenario and how you would react. The questions had nothing to do with the job I would be doing, and were more appropriate for a retail environment, which knocked me for a loop and probably cost me the job.

Interview Question – tell me about a time you went out of your way to provide excellent customer service
tell me about a time you disagreed with your team leader and what you did
tell me about a time that you had to deal with a rapidly changing situation and how you reacted

Customer Care Professional Interview

Customer Care Professional
Frederick, MD

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

Interview Details – Applied and took assessment online. The next day received email from a recruiter to complete a digital interview where they asked 3 behavioral questions. The next day recruiter called to set up one on one interview the same day. Interviewed with 2 supervisors. Was not impressed, I got the judgement look right when they came in. They asked 3 behavioral questions and 2 main interview questions, why UnitedHealth group? And what sets you apart from the other candidates, why should we hire you?

Said they were going to contact me the next day and never heard anything. Should have at least emailed or called me I didn't get the position! Rude.

Interview Question – Behavioral questions   Answer Question

Financial Analyst Intern Interview

Financial Analyst Intern

I applied online and interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

Interview Details – Applied in April, got invited to an online interview in May. Five straightforward questions were asked, however, it was a bit awkward talking while staring at yourself. The process itself was confusing because there's no one I could contact about my application status and the status online doesn't update.

Interview Question – What makes you different from the other candidates?   Answer Question
