    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tufts Health Plan (Watertown, MA).

    Interview

    Phone interview first where a recruiter asked questions specific to position that he was reading off a script. Asked a question about how to do X and I replied and he said I was wrong and then read what the engineers wrote. It was doing the same thing using a different method. He then said something about how he was a more technologically minded recruiter (ugh).

    Then for the in person interview it was 4 hours and I met with multiple people. There was a test where I had to interpret some graphs, and I believe there were coding questions to see if I understood what the code was doing. They did not really offer much context, so it was more difficult than it needed to be.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tufts Health Plan (Watertown, MA).

    Interview

    Quick HR phone screen that led to an in person interview with the hiring manager. Took almost a month to hear back from them and was asked to come back in to meet with manager of the hiring manager. This was supposed to be the last round of interviews. Never heard back from them after meeting with the managers manager...not even a automated email saying that they decided to go another path. Interview questions were really canned questions, no real thought process put behind them.

    I recently interviewed for a position at Tufts Health Plan, and have happily accepted a position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Tufts Health Plan.

    Interview

    They moved pretty quickly. I heard back within days of applying. Had an impromptu phone screen with HR when they called. I would have preferred to schedule that versus unintentionally taking an unplanned extended lunch break as I was about to walk back into the office. I thought they were calling to arrange the phone screen, so I said I had a moment. Thirty minutes later...
    After, they arranged for a call with the hiring manager within days, and brought me in a week and a half later. Offer extended a few days after the interview. HR was polite, but seemed disorganized. Conflicted messaging, last minute changes and adjustments, etc.

    Paralegal Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Tufts Health Plan.

    Interview

    It is a pretty typical process. Phone screen followed by an in person interview. I met with a few different people in the department all of whom were very nice. Afterwards I debriefed with the HR recruiter. We discussed how the interviews went and I was told they wanted to hire someone ASAP and I would hear back very soon. Basically implying that they really liked me and I should expect an offer. I left and then never heard from anyone again. Until two months later when I received an auto generated email that said I didn't get the position. I really wasn't surprised by this as I know from experience that Tufts is not the most professional company and their HR department is sub par at best. Word of advice to anyone applying is to keep your expectations low.
