    TECDP Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Cigna.

    Interview

    I had two behavioral phone interviews with cigna. Then several weeks passed then I received an offer. Interviewers were young and clearly reading scripted questions. Each interview was 30 mins. Very specific behavioral questions, clearly needed to think on your feet to find answers that were appropriate for the question. Did not get the location I wanted which is difficult for travel. Housing provided.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cigna (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I put the application in early November. Received a call from the recruiter about a month later. Had a pretty good discussion about the role and scheduled an interview for Tuesday.
    Went to the interview, the interviewers we very nice and welcoming. The questions weren't as much experience based as they were behavioral. After several scenarios, there was a Q&A session and then it was over.
    Then next day I received a call from the recruiter informing me that I had the job. Emails to completely the process followed.

    .NET Web Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cigna (Portland, OR) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Came directly into the office for a one-hour regimented timed to-the-minute interview. Just a bunch of rapid-fire technical and behaviorial questions. Unfortunately, I was also asked many systems administration questions that had nothing to do with the job description, even though my background fully satisfied the requirements. I was quickly rejected for a "too narrow" background! Two days afterward, I found out from another recruiter that Cigna then changed the job title to ".Web Application / Configuration Engineer". I would have never applied to such a job title. Cigna's incompetence in writing a job description wasted a lot of my time and effort.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me what system administration tools I had used.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cigna (Bloomfield, CT) in December 2016.

    Interview

    They called me one night asking for a phone interview the next morning. That morning they called me 30 minutes late then asked if I could go for a face to face interview that day. I said I had a final that day and needed more time to prepare. I went in the next week. 2 30 min interviews. It felt more of an interrogation

    Underwriter Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Cigna (Hartford, CT) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Fairly average in terms of difficulty. Started by applying to the ULTRA Program online directly via Cignas website. After waiting about a month, I was invited to group interviews at a state university.

    First interview involved myself and two Underwriters from Cigna who had graduated from ULTRA. Consisted of several analytical questions, but more behavioral than anything else. Typical interview experience, nothing unexpected. Be sure to answer analytical questions correctly, and ask good questions at the end.

    Was contacted a day later for the second and final interview, which took place at the Cigna HQ in Bloomfield/Hartford, CT. Was told that I'd be meeting with two upper Underwriters of Cigna, soon learned that this interview process actually consisted of TWO 30 minute interviews with TWO different upper Underwriters. Again, involved more analytical and behavioral questions that would determine how I suited what Cigna looks for in their Underwriters. Questions involved being able to handle quantitative questions, my experience with data analysis, how I would work with others in Cigna, and past work experience.

    After completing both interviews, was walked out of building and told that I would hear back before Thanksgiving (a 4 week time period). Heard back a little less than a week before Thanksgiving with an offer from Cigna by a phone call, and accepted the position immediately.

    My Advice: PRACTICE. Think of any interview question that they could ask, and come up with several different answers that would work in an interview. Be sure to emphasize your experience in data analysis and why you fit this position. This applies to any interview.

    Underwriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cigna in November 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was over the phone around 30 minutes with the department manager. It was just getting to know you type questions and giving you a chance to highlight some things in your cover letter and resume. They also explain the job to you. The second interview was approximately 90 minutes with 5 different people in HR and the Underwriting department. They asked you harder questions about your work experience and a few mental math questions. They just want to see the process in how you formulate your answer.
