    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cigna (Hartford, CT) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted for a phone screening. Most difficult phone screening I have ever had. They really wanted to see if you knew about the healthcare industry. Afterwards I was contacted for an on site interview. Onsite interviews were difficult as well. 4 interviews with an unofficial interview for lunch. The interviewers were very kind and wanted to get to know you better. A lot of behavioral and technical.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cigna (Madison, WI) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was a 30-min phone interview, and I was contacted directly by an actuary. He was very friendly, and talked a lot about his past experience with me. He kind of expected me to know more about Obama care, which I am really not familiar with because I am an international student. I guess it left him a bad impression.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cigna in August 2013.

    Interview

    Pretty basic phone interview. A few behavioral questions to start the interview off with. After that, the interviewer asked a couple questions about basic insurance principles to see that I had a basic understanding of it. The interviewer then told me a bit about the company and what they the internship position consisted of. Lasted about 30 minutes. Heard back about two weeks later for a second phone interview.

    Interview

    I receive a phone interview for the job. The questions are all behavioral questions. I have wanted to work for Cigna for a long time, so when I finally got a chance to interview I was most excited. However despite not getting an offer, I do not think that this is the type of place I would want to work anyway. Upon entering the room with the interviewer, I was simply asked in a rude tone "why would I hire you"
