    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview Details

    The process of hiring at UHG is very efficient. The recruiters work hard to bring talent in the organization in a timely manner.
    You're more likely to go through a phone interview with a recruiter first and then with the hiring manager. The process is structured, but is pretty informal and intuitive. This worked for me.

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate for a long time, the job sounded exciting and i was offered the top of my range right away.

    Interview Details

    Still in the process. I received an email suggesting a job matched my qualifications (this was on Sunday night). I applied the next day (Monday) and that evening I got an email for Skype type interview, I completed that on Tuesday. Two days later I received an email to set up a time for a telephone interview with recruiter, I did the telephone interview on Friday. A week later I received a call to set up a third interview with hiring manager. That interview is still pending.

    I applied online – interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview Details

    Very straightforward. There was a phone interview; in-person computer skills test (which was disguised as "log in to this terminal and print your information for us"); and in-person interview. Interview process went exactly as they described it would.

    Interview Details

    Got recruited at campus. Attended career fair, 2 rounds of interviews and was given offer letter. Round 1 was behavioral and round 2 was more of a discussion on past experience, 'fit' . Interview questions were standard. Nothing unexpected or out of the ordinary.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview Details

    The process took a little over a week. I applied online, the next day I received an email for Hirevue and a phone call from the recruiter who told me about the job and hours. I completed the hirevue and thought I blew it but got a call the next day from the recruiter saying they wanted a face to face interview. Two days later, on a Friday, I completed the face to face interview. She said she was moving me forward and asked what time I could talk to her manager on Monday. I said before 11am and THEY called at 10:45 for a 15 minute panel interview. The short interview ended and I was told I would hear from the recruiter. The recruiter called 2 hours later and offered me a job!!!
    FAST AND EFFICIENT!

    Digital Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    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.
