    An Analytic Beauty Contest Interview Process Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Truven Health Analytics (Ann Arbor, MI) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is a typical qualitative beauty contest. (Are you clever enough to work here? Are you one of us? ) Truven seeks to judge whether you can communicate, think on your feet and problem-solve, as there seems to be lots of conflict, competing for resources and demanding clients.

    Truven keeps positions open, preferring to keep interviewing versus actually hire. I suspect it's because they owned by private equity, manage for profit over EE loyalty and are a bit smug. The phone screen is made up of several behavioral "tell me about" questions crammed into the allotted half-hour or hour, depending on how interested they are. If you end up with ten minutes to ask probing questions at the end, you should consider your self fortunate.

    Truven is not a diverse employer in terms of hiring. Frankly, they seem to discriminate on age, sex, race and employment status. I did well enough to advance to the "next round" in the screening process. However, once the boss's boss found out I was over 40, I was summarily rejected.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Truven Health Analytics (Ann Arbor, MI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Brief initial contact by phone. In person interview with lots of behavior questions. They wanted to know what my experience was with excel and powerpoint. After a week I heard back from the recruiting specialist who said that despite "great" interviews and the fact that I had "potential to have a positive impact on the team" they were looking for someone with different skills. When I contacted him for clarification on what those skills are (because I would like to obtain a job like this) I was ignored. I had a very high opinion of Truven up until this point.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Truven Health Analytics (Ann Arbor, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to the Data Management Consultant position online on a Sunday then was emailed by a recruiter the following day to schedule the phone screen. I ended up doing the phone screen with the recruiter the same day and she asked about my work experience and skills. I was called again two days later to schedule an in-person interview. The in-person interview was a 3-part 1:1 interviews with a Manager, and 2 Data Mgmt Leads for an hour each therefore the whole interview was 3 hours long. The interview format with each interviewer had behavioral/STAR (Situation or Task, Action you took, Results achieved) structured questions that focused on asking about previous experiences. I was called two days later with a job offer that I have accepted.

    Healthcare Analytic Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Truven Health Analytics (Ann Arbor, MI).

    Interview

    There was an initial phone screening with HR, followed by a real phone interview with HR (standard behavioral questions, work experience, etc). I had another internship offer on the table so I explained to HR my situation and they were very accommodating and expedited my interview process. I then met with a senior VP in one of their offices that was based in my current city and then a few days later, had a phone interview with someone in their main office in Ann Arbor.

    Truven makes sure that they grab the right candidates the interview process was long and tough at times, but HR and everyone I talked to seemed extremely capable, intelligent, and passionate. They went out of their way to accommodate my needs and I felt very valued as a possible intern and individual.

    Interview

    Lengthy and too complicated. Seemed like all they wanted to know what about my back ground and if I would fit into the job. Not much about me as a person.
