    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cigna.

    Interview Details

    Super day at their office, was about 2 panel interviews with 2 different senior analysts, a presentation, job shadow, and virtual training which wasn't really anything. We were in a group so they called us out per schedule. The interviewers were pretty standard with behavioral/analytical questions. I was a bit disappointed because the presentation seemed like the interviewers wanted something more laid back instead of something more serious.
