    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aetna.

    Interview

    Began with phone screen with HR 3+ months after application. Next step was brief phone conversation with hiring manager, mostly an explanation of his background and the potential position with some generic questions about my experience. From there he said that someone would contact me for an on site interview and never heard back. Follow-ups did not receive a response. This experience seemed consistent with those that I had heard from others that had interviewed here as well.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aetna.

    Interview

    I applied online to a few jobs on the Aetna website. I was called by one of their corporate recruiters and we had a 10 minute phone call. She later passed my information to the manager of the audit team. He emailed times to meet for the following week. I had a 3 hour interview with 2 managers and two directors. The following week HR called me to tell me to officially apply for the position on Aetna's website which I found odd. The following day they had me do an application part 2. At that point they told me no other interviews would be held. A few days later the HR recruiter made me a job offer. It required a drug test, credit check and a background check.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aetna (Saint Louis, MO) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The process was disappointing. I applied online and was called to do a phone screen, then an in person interview. The interview went great, I was positive that I would get the position. I was told to expect a decision within the next week. The next morning I received an email saying the position had been canceled. I reached out to my recruiter who advised me the position was canceled because the team is being relocated to another state. Instead of reaching out to people before their in person interviews, they decided to waste our time. I had such a great impression of the company before this. Very unprofessional and disappointing moment

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Aetna (Hartford, CT) in August 2017.

    Interview

    In general the interview process was not oriented toward key hiring criteria and the insecurities of the hiring manager vs my qualifications led to my not being considered; there is a current fixation on Harvard business school graduates and I focus on credentials versus an understanding of the insurance business
