    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Aetna (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    The interview was more me asking them questions, rather than them asking me. I got the opportunity to meet all of the underwriters in the department. I was a recent college graduate and did not have any experience, so they were very understand of that and took the time to explain everything in as much detail as they could.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Aetna (Blue Bell, PA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    emailed me position they wanted me to interview for and scheduled date. I interviewed with two people; 1 in person and 1 on conference call. I was originally suppose to interview with three people. A lot of scenario questions were asked, as well as a few financial questions. The interview went well, but the job was not offered to me because of limited experience in what they were specifically looking for.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aetna (Hartford, CT) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I met with four managers in the underwriting department total. Two first, then another two right after. Math questions were asked which was a little nerve wracking since I was already nervous. I blanked on the questions but you get to use a pen and paper, just not a calculator.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Aetna.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 3 people at once. There were two managers and one head underwriter. It was basically more of a casual conversation and only one person really spoke. The two managers were the quiet ones. I believe they all came to see which team whoever they do hire would fit on best.

    Interview Questions

    • There were really no unexpected or difficult questions. It was more casual conversation.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aetna.

    Interview

    Process began with a short phone interview involving basic questions about my background, education, and work experience. Second interview was in person. They ask what you know about the industry overall and healthcare reform. They ask why you are interested in the position and what you know about the company as a whole. They are looking for you to be analytically-minded and know about Aetna's culture and values as a healthcare company not just an "insurance" company. If you have experience and knowledge in math/finance this is likely an advantage for this particular position.

    Interview Questions

    • A few basic math questions on the spot in the interview. Not difficult but was unexpected for me   Answer Question
