Software Engineer Interview

Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (San Diego, CA) in February 2015.

Interview

Had 1 technical interview followed by 2 technical interviews at their location. I enjoyed talking to the first 2 engineers but the last was unbelievably awful and was trying to make me fail. He asked me such a difficult problem and purposely gave me some wrong info to see if I would catch it or not, changed the scenario while I was near done solving it, and clearly told me he'll notify the other interviewers that I did so poorly. I spoke to everyone else that interviewed with the company and they only had 1 or 2 technical interviews with simple problems. They were completely shocked at how I was treated by the last person. I'll make sure to never apply to this place ever again.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in February 2015.

    Interview

    This is on campus interview. First talk about resume and then ask behaviour questions. Like why do you choose us, why work in health industry. What the important thing in woking with team. How to handle argue in a team. For example, two people want to be leader and there are just two people in this team. Then let me teach him poker rules. I teach him the easiest one I know. I draw some pictures to teach rules.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Colorado Springs, CO) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The initial contact was by their HR team in Austin, TX. They were very professional and cordial during that stage. They set up a face to face interview for me in Colorado Springs about 2 weeks after the initial contact. I arrived at the address given but found no listing for "UnitiedHealth Group" in the office directory. I finally asked someone outside the building and they laughed as if i was not in on the joke. They told me that this was indeed the address but that UnitedHealth actually partners with another small company for their IT work. No one ever mentioned this to me and it was greatly disappointing to me that I would not be an actual employee of UnitedHealth. The interview went well but the hiring manager seemed a little cold and distant. From what I learned about the company from this interview would probably keep me from applying there again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Hyderābād (India)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process flow was Technical --> Manager --> HR discussion I applied for mainframe position and was referred by an employee. Interview was quite easy,simple straight forward questions in cobol and db2 and jcl. Hardly any scenario based questions. Technical interview lasted for 15-20 mins. Later on was told that I cleared tech round and managerial round followed immediately. He was primarily interested about my role in the current job and was checking whether I was aware about the process that was followed. No technical questions were asked in this round. It lasted for around 30 mins. I was told to leave for the day. A week later I got an email asking for my documents,followed by a call for negotiation on salary.They do negotiate but only up to a certain limit. Choice of location was asked(Gurgaon,Noida and Hyderabad).After 20 days,I received offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I am posting this Interview Review because the process was horrible. Interview was scheduled by consultancy firm, scheduled time was 10:30 AM. They only had 1 panel for a Saturday interview & candidates count was more than 50. Till 5:00 pm, that panel was only able to take 9 interviews till that time. My number was 22 on that list so I left from there at 5 pm because they could have postponed it or have taken interviews till midnight. Sensible advice is Don't go for an interview, instead go in organizations which treat you good atleast while recruiting :)
