    Digital Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at UnitedHealth Group in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    One of the most horrendous and inconsistent hiring process I've experienced. First, started with a submission online which then resulted in an HR rep phone conversation about salary and general expectations. Next, asked to complete a recorded video interview to answer a few questions related to the position. From that, I was asked to come to the office for an interview with the hiring manager. Keep in mind, they do not reimburse for travel and I drove 3.5 hours to get to the interview knowing I was moving to the location in the next month.

    From there, I received follow up that the hiring manager wanted me to come back again for final interviews with the manager, the VP, and meet the rest of the team. The interview was pretty conversational, not really too much in depth about experience or what they were looking for. I was told I would hear back in 1-2 weeks on their decision. A month and a 1/2 passed with no communication. The recruiter would not respond to my inquiries asking for an update, they would not pass along emails so I could check in directly and make it personal, and they were completely unresponsive.

    Finally, after finding a teammate on LinkedIn and shooting him/her a message, I received the generic response via email that they no longer had the position available. Total time from first conversation to their decision was 3 months. This was a complete waste of my time, there was no consideration for my candidacy, and there was no communication from any members of the hiring team or recruitment/HR department. Very unpleasant experience and would not recommend this company to anyone. Maybe coming from the #1 company in the world my expectations are high, but this was by far the worst experience I've encountered.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview Details

    The interview process seems fairly streamlined through the UHG recruiting system. Recruiter was clearcut in the process, but the second interviewers were not. Recruiter and on-site second interviewers described the job differently. First interview was not as clinical as second interview.

    Hiring process was quick and easy. I applied and within a week i was contacted by email to do an assessment and interview. The assessment had multiple questions about how one would feel in certain situations and others about personality traits. The Hireview interview was quick, easy and very convenient. It was a virtual interview where you have 30 seconds to prepare and 3 minutes to answer. Prior to the interview there is a practice section that allows you to get familiar with the process. Had a phone interview and it went well. Was advised I would be called for am in person. Was advised Should hear something within a week or so. never received a callback went online and was advised no longer under consideration.

    I applied online. Completed the initial HireVue one way interview. Telephone interview from Recruiter to make sure I fit all the mandatory criteria. Then in person interview scheduled at Headquaters. The process took about a month. The people were kind and the interview seemed to go really well. They had the Director and a team leader sit in, to fill in some of the intricacies of the position. That was helpful. I thought I did well.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call back a couple days later. The 1st phase went through was just a regular phone screening from the recruiter. The second phone interview was with the hiring manager which lasted about an hour. The 3rd phase was with the the director, hiring manager, and the engineering team. It lasted for about and hour ( was scheduled for 2 ) and was sort of difficult.

    I waited about 3 weeks and received an update that I was still under consideration. I waited another couple weeks to get another email to say I was no longer in the running. Several attempts to reach out to the recruiter and nothing back. There recruiting effort needs to be more communicative. A couple of sentences could make a difference in a persons life.
