    I have been working at Centene full-time

    Pros

    The provide good pay for the field and decent benefits. Enjoyable job and good support from co-workers. Number of people on caseload seems reasonable.

    Cons

    Paperwork can be overwhelming and lots of details to remember. Policies and expectations constantly changing. There is a huge focus on cutting costs. Sometimes the client's needs are valued less than the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    It would help if all management was sharing the same message and the work processes were left the same for longer periods of time. Constantly changing the work processes can be confusing.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Centene.

    Interview

    In the job interview it was not very clear to me what exactly the job involved. It was not clearly identified the area where I would be working. Also the job description do not indicate I would be working in the field, although I have found that I enjoy this. There is a somewhat high turn over at this company so sometimes you may get moved to a different position than you interviewed for. Also it took many months after I applied to hear anything back. The background check alone took several months. I had assumed I did not get the job because I did not hear back for so long, but I did end up getting the job after all.
