    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ValueOptions.

    Interview

    Interview was great, but not the reality of the job or working environment at all. I feel my interviewer was initially sincere in what she wanted the values of this company to be, but not what the reality is.

    Interview Questions

    Clinical Appeals Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ValueOptions (Latham, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was an internal candidate, having worked as a Customer Service Representative with the company for three years. I posted my application on a Friday, received a meeting request on the following Tuesday, had the interview at 8:00 AM on Wednesday, and was told another candidate (who had been laid off in December after working with the department for seventeen years) got the offer at 8:15 AM on Friday. So: lightning fast. I met with the department manager in his office, with the supervisor joining us remotely by phone. Both were friendly, sharp professionals. One of the best aspects of the interview process was that they schedule a follow-up meeting for all internal applicants, not just the one they make an offer to, so that everyone who applies gets comprehensive feedback. While I was very disappointed to not get the position, the manager said that they were very impressed by my unique skill set and encouraged me to apply if and when another position in the department becomes available. TL;DR Very fast, enjoyable interview process, even though I didn't get the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • In addition to traditional questions about long term goals and motivation for applying, there were some technical questions about the clinical appeals process, writing clinical summaries, and differentiating between inpatient mental health and residential treatment.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ValueOptions.

    Interview

    Interviews were casual; had no idea what the benefits were until after I hired on; None of those "where do you see yourself in 5 years...". Process did take awhile (2+ months),

    Interview Questions

    • Less about actual job; more about getting along with existing staff; May have asked why I left previous jobs, questions about being able to work in a team environment, etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ValueOptions.

    Interview

    i was pre-screened and had a good reference from a former colleague who works at ValueOptions. He sold me on the company ahead of time and told me when there was an opening. He knew my talent and he was well respected by his management. My interview was smooth and the hiring manager agreed that I was as competent as my referral source told her.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Simple. My referral already sold me on the company and I was offered more than my present place of employment at that time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ValueOptions in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied to the job through the company website within 48 hours of the job being posted. I got a call from the supervisor a couple of days later. We had a fairly informal, friendly 20-minute conversation/phone interview (see "Negotiation" info below, as this was brought up), and I was asked if I could come in later that week to meet with her. The in-person interview went very well, and included a (surprise) Excel test in the end. I was given a tour of the department and introduced to a few people, then went home feeling great about my chances. I got a call a little over a week later with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Fairly standard interview questions, with nothing too difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was told in the first phone interview what the salary was, as she wanted to make sure we were on the same page. I respected her up-frontness, and the final offer was as expected, which was decent and I accepted it.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ValueOptions.

    Interview

    Great interview. Staff seemed really nice. Supervisor was extremely talkative and ranty, struggled to stay awake during the last minutes. Supervisor seemed really easy to read and probably wouldn't have spent as much time with me if she didn't feel like I was a good candidate. Offered the job days later, then was told to submit a drug test.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ValueOptions (Albany, NY).

    Interview

    Was introduced to this psoition through a temp agency. This is their primary method of hiring for this department/position. I went in for an interview, there was great chemistry, some hard questions but nothing too unexpected for the job description as she made she to tell abotu the job in detail before asking you questions. The questions were mostly directly relevant to not only past experience, but also ability to handle the types of situations and frustrations that would occur during the position.

    Interview Questions

    • One that may be difficult for some is the question of how you would handle dealing with applicaitons and systems that were still under develeopment or having issues, and if you could deal with the frustration of needing to complete a job when your own tools may be causing issues and hindering your work. Basically a questiion to give you an idea of what issues you might face, but also to see how you would handle that kind of barriers and what you would do productively to deal with the situation.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    This position paid very well (even with the temp agency taking a cut) but a different position at the same company had opened up that could become permanent (unlike this position). Also, the other position offered the option of working from home eventually.
