    Actuarial Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at WellPoint in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met WellPoint at an university career fair. Got invited to a first round interview. Thought everything went well, recruiter seemed friendly. Biggest thing that the recruiter pointed out was the lack of exams (only had 1). Having more is almost essential to getting any sort of interview. That's probably what dinged me, GPA and leadership experience were solid.

    Business Change Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at WellPoint.

    Interview Details

    The first contact was by the recruiter stating my resume was forwarded to the hiring manager. The hiring manager contacted me fairly quickly a few days later to set up a formal interview. I arrived at the location on time and had to check in at the security desk. The interview process went well with only the hiring manager and lasted about 1 hour. The manager was very nice and pleasant. The questions were very straightforward with no surprises. Overall, the experience more than met my expectations.

    Customer Service III Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at WellPoint in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    First I filled out the online application. Then was sent a email to take an assessment. A week later I was sent an email to come in for an interview. I though the interview went fine. I tried my best to nail it. The interviewer was very young and didn't ask many questions, just the five that was on the paper in front of her. We seemed to have a connection, but two days later they sent me an email denying me a position.

    Vice President Clinical Staff Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at WellPoint in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied as a Sr Tech Business Manager online. When on the phone call, the interviewer told me I was overqualified for that, and asked to interview me for complex VP position instead.

    As such, I was not very prepared other than hearing a short list of what I could be doing and then asking my opinion of the job. The duties sounded challenging and exciting and we discussed the workload for a brief period. We only had scheduled half an hour for all this, so I answered succinctly and when our time was up I was able to get 2 questions in before she had to ring off. She seemed very engaging and said I seemed well-equipped for the position.

    After our talk I expected a full job description and more questions/interview to follow then, as the position was complex and we could not cover everything in half an hour. Instead there was ZERO communication. As I was offered a very similar job by a larger firm the following month, I cannot say it was my inexperience nor my interviewing skills.

    Her secretary was fairly inept at answering the simplest of questions (what is the job number?) or writing email without typos so maybe that was an indicator early on. Further direct inquiry on the position with this manager by email (three times) resulted in no response. This is not professional and I'm glad I did not proceed further if this is how a company attempts to hire people for important positions.

    Clinical Program Director Interview

    Interview Details

    Interviewed and Hired over the phone with multiple people through out the country. Some of the interviews were groups of leaders that were wanting to see if I had what they needed. It was interesting in that I could not see them or facial reactions and had to go by tone of voice. Once I accepted it then took awhile to get all the paper work completed for the company the use called "Right Hire" - I was on vacation trying to complete everything they wanted. Did accomplish getting it done and hired while I was on vacation.

    intially i submitted my application online. The following day i received an email saying my application was aknowledged (as expected). The next day i received another email ( much to my suprise because i have heard wellpoint takes FOREVER to go through the hiring process) this email was asking me to take a comouterized assesment of my skills ( simple questions, nothing too draining). MUCH to my suprise i recieved ANOTHER email the following day stating that wellpoint has authorized me to complete the "hireRight employment application". That very same day i was asked to schedule my phone interview which is currently scheduled for this wednesday. - this is just a little insight on the hiring process. i know i havent found much on wellpoint yet, so this should put some of you at ease knowing what others have gone through thus far. i clicked no i did not get the offer becaquse i have yet to recieve even my interview.
