    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview

    Initial phone- recruiter; phone -manager, Basically checking if you are fine with doing things the Optum way (keeping hospital admissions as low as possible even if the participant needs it). Very “bottom line” oriented sensed from management rather than patient and employee oriented. Felt I would not be moving forward in process based on tone of conversation as it related to life and death.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    After applying I receive an email response detailing the salary range, $16-$20/hr. I indicate my interest and proceed to schedule a phone interview on a given date. The interviewer did not call on the agreed upon time. I email the scheduler, who is apologetic and takes responsibility, then asks me to reschedule a 2nd scheduled phone interview on a different day. Same thing happens again. Interviewer doesn't call, again. I call the scheduler, leave a message, send an email with no response what so ever. I then email the interviewer who was suppose to call, she claims she was given conflicting info from the scheduler. The next morning, the interviewer calls me, out of the blue to tell me that because I don't have a degree in biology I cannot be considered.. Really?? At $20/hr.. This was the worse interview process I NEVER had...
