Associate Finance Director Interview

Associate Finance Director

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

Interview Details – There were 5 or six interviews in San Diego, all in one day, then another set of 4 or 5 interviews at the corporate office in San Francisco. They paid for my flight and all travel to S.F. After the interviews it took almost two months to get the offer...unbeknownst to me at the time, they had a hiring freeze take place. The manager just asked me to call him every week to see if I was still interested or not. I didn't have any other job offers at the time, so I waited the process out until I got the job offer.

Interview Question – Nothing really challenging, just basic questions about my most difficult jobs and how I handled it.   Answer Question

Financial Analyst Intern Interview

Financial Analyst Intern
Cypress, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in May 2014.

Interview Details – Online video recording process for question and answers. No actual human interaction. Five questions came up on the screen one at a time, was given 45 seconds to prep after the question came up on the screen and then three minutes to record my response for each question. Questions were all fairly simple and straight forward.

Interview Question – Tell me about a specific time when you were given a task to accomplish with little or no direction.   Answer Question

Marketing Interview

Marketing
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in April 2014.

Interview Details – Online interview. Concerns are that they are fairly removed from considering highly trained and qualified talent. Phone interview and in-person interview are possible but you are not guaranteed an in-person interview with the hiring manager.

Interview Question – Online recorded interview with no interaction from an actual interviewer. Three or four questions with time to respond. The video recorded interview process seems fabricated. It would be better to have an opportunity to interact with the direct hiring manager. I think it is much better if there were three questions made with the hiring manager via Skype or video interview if they are testing your technology skills.   Answer Question
