    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accretive Health.

    Interview Details

    This was a while ago so things may well have changed. The internal company recruiter was worthless and when I showed up, there was no receptionist so I had to wait in the hallway. Twenty minutes later, the external recruiter called and asked where I was and why I was late to the interview. After I explained, someone came out to meet me. Not a great start.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were pretty straightforward though one of the developers didn't like my response and got mad at me for raising some pretty basic questions about the business. The other people laughed so it was ok.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Pretty basic. nothing special.
