    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Optum.

    Interview

    There are 3 steps. First, there will be an online technical assessment. Then, you will get another Hue interview (Video recording). Next, you get the virtual interview with interviewers. The recruiting coordinator was nice and knowledgeable. She reminded and responded to every email but it took 2 months for the hiring manager to make the hiring decision. I thought I had a chance for making to the final decision but it was a huge letdown.

    Interview Questions

    • Why you are interested in the position. Tell me about yourself. How you handle a conflict situation. More behavioral question   Answer Question

    Interview

    It was not too difficult. Come with a basic understanding of what the company does and have an interest in learning more. Most questions were situational, only a few basic technical questions about coding.

    Interview

    Varies by department but I would be prepared with basic interview questions and examples of projects. Some managers asked very specific behavioral questions but others were more casual and wanted you to walk through your resume so I would be prepared for either scenario

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself, walk me through your resume, and behavioral interview questions related to the role (tell me about a time you led a marketing campaign etc.). Tell me about a time you had a conflict came up in multiple interviews as well.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Fast responses from HR reps to set up the interviews. The second interview was not as in-depth as I thought it was going to be, but you can tell that those who interview you are excited about what they do with Davita.

    Interview

    Phone interview w/HR recruiter and then hiring manager. After that they said there would be a meeting w/the team. I didn't get that far. See below for advice on what NOT to discuss in your interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • They will press you on money and tell you that the salary you are looking for is totally doable and that you're a really strong candidate. They'll keep in touch and keep you "warm" until they find someone cheaper. Then they'll dump you and tell you you're overqualified.   1 Answer
