    Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Aetna (Hartford, CT).

    Interview

    I saw the job on Indeed and applied on their website. Initial contact after about 3 weeks was with an Aetna in-house recruiter. This interview was mostly just asking me to summarize my background and going over the position. I was invited after another 2 weeks in for an in-person interview with the hiring managers. These were both behavioral questions and some light technical. After that, waited again for 3 weeks and was asked back for a lunch interview. This was almost a repeat of the first interview, except in a restaurant close to other strangers, which I found very awkward. I, perhaps naively, expected it to be a more casual “getting to know you” setting and it was not so I was a little unprepared for the hard questions.

    Claim Benefit Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Weirton, WV
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Aetna (Weirton, WV) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted for an interview and the interviewer was very straightforward that I was one of the first interviews and it was likely to be a couple of months until I heard any decision. I was expecting slow communication but the team was highly communicative and moved along with a sense of purpose. I was advised of my hire 6 weeks prior to my start and am able to smoothly transition out of my current job at another company.

    Network Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Aetna (Louisville, KY).

    Interview

    Applied on Aetnas website, received a call the same day from recruiter set up interview for the next day. Recruiter said it went great and information would be passed along to hiring manager and If she was interested she would contact me directly for the interview, she called 2 days later and set up interview

    Now he is the kicker!... for 2 months I was strung along to be told I was a top final candidate and that the Hiring managers manager would be reaching out to me to schedule my final interview. Well that day came and I received the generic “No Thanks email”! I was in total disbelief due to the fact that HR has told me how well my interview went with the hiring manager and that I was everything they were looking for in this position. The reason I didn’t get the job was because they decided to go on a different direction Per the recruiter.

    Well thanks for wasting over 2 months for nothing!

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aetna (Hartford, CT).

    Interview

    Phone interview. Lasted maybe 20 minutes. Asked behavioral interview type questions. Interviewer was not very personable and sounded kind of young. Very to the point and scripted. Interviewer didn't ask very good questions in my opinion, not sure how they were going to get a good idea of me based on what they asked.

    Interview

    Doesn't really apply as my company was purchased by Aetna after I was hired. I had four interviews before I was hired that were a combination of in-person and over the phone with four different individuals.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aetna (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Someone called me to schedule a phone interview. The recruiter didn’t state her name and mentioned she wouldn’t be sending a confirmation email. I prepared, cleared my day, and waited by the phone. Nothing. It has been a week since the scheduled interview date. No one has called. No one has emailed. Completely unprofessional and inconsiderate.
