    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview

    Interview process is pretty standard. Asking behavioral based questions. These are questions about situations that include where you were employed, what the situation was, how you handlers it, what you did to get there and the outcome. Pretty standard. Then a few personality questions and a couple things off of my resume.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Getting a job at United Health Group is a long process, but it can be done, so if you're interested in working here, don't give up.

    I applied online to a ton of open positions - they have dozens of open project management positions at any given time. For one of these positions, I received an email from UHG recruiting inviting me to a digital interview (this email went to my spam folder in Gmail, so CHECK THE SPAM!!!). Upon receipt of the email, you have 48 hours to complete the interview.

    The digital interview is awkward. I'm lucky enough in that I have a new desktop Mac with a webcam. This whole process would be tough to do on a tablet or smartphone.

    I thought I royally screwed the digital interview up, as I stumbled on my answers and didn't think I was articulate enough. It's very awkward talking to yourself. Keep in mind though, most of the other candidates also think it's awkward, so if you blunder through some of the questions, don't fret too much. And SMILE!

    The questions are pretty easy -- very basic interview questions ("Tell me why you want to work here" "describe one of the projects you managed") and there's only 5 of them but again, it's awkward! Make sure you dress up (I work my suit) and be mindful of any background clutter.

    Apparently they liked me enough to proceed to the next round. The next round consisted of two phone interviews -- one with HR and one with the hiring manager. My hiring manager was located across the country, so there would be no in-person with her. The hiring manager didn't ask me any silly interview questions - it was just a conversation about my skills. Again, I thought I bombed it, but I must've done well, as about a week and a half later, I was invited for an in-person interview with two team members.

    The in-person was a breeze. It didn't seem like an interview. I just had a conversation with two team members on-site, about what I'd be working on when I initially start the role. I knew I had the job when I left, as one of the team members said he would start the process with HR that afternoon.

    The next day, I had an offer from the UHG recruiter by phone. They make an offer, and THEN they do the paperwork after you accept -- it's background check by an outside firm and a drug test (pee in a cup).

    All in all, this whole process took about 2.5-3 months, from initial online app to my start date. It's a long process, but it's a huge company and if you want to work here, keep applying.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview

    The initial interview was a video interview. The interview including set-up and practice time was about 1 hour. Be sure to watch the videos online about video set up. Lighting is important! This was my first experience with a video interview. It was nerve racking until you get used to answering to the computer. You have the chance to practice without recording but these are not the interview questions. The interview shows the question gives you 30 seconds to prepare and 3 minutes to answer. There are no retakes.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview

    Very dissatisfied:
    I thought everything went well and I did well at the interview. No one even bothered to email me or phone me even if I followed up. And the job was closed after 2 months of me being interviewed. Atleast email and tell the person that you are not being considered. How can i ever apply again :(
