    Interview

    Long and no call back. Long disorganized phone interview. Waiting to hear back but no calls and they don't respond to email. I'm not sure what else to say to get to 50 words. Hope this is ok. And now I sit and wait for a call back but have not received one. Hoping soon they will call.

    Contract Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Detroit, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Detroit, MI) in October 2014.

    Interview

    First I had a phone interview where I briefly discussed my qualifications and my interest in the job on a broad basis. I was asked at this point what my salary expectation was. A few days later I was asked to complete a video interview where I was asked some knowledge and behavioral questions, and my responses were recorded and sent to the hiring team. I was later thanked specifically for completing that video. I was then called in for an in person interview where I spent over an hour discussing a great deal of matters, from past education and experience, to expectations of the job, to future goals. It was very conversational and felt like I was getting to know the hiring team personally. About a week later I was asked to come in for one more interview. At that interview we discussed my interest in the job and what motivated me. I believe this interview was more informational for me so that I could be sure that the position I was applying for would work for me. About a week or two later I received an email from HR with a conditional offer (drug test). A few days later I received a phone call to negotiate salary and it was final. Next I had a call with the hiring team to determine start date.

    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied and few days later received invite to 6 question video interview; less than week later invite to phone interview with recruiter. This was a very brief interview where she was just confirming experience and required education. She was typing while I was an swerving, very distracting. They set up hiring manager interview at same time as they set up recruiter interview. The hiring manager interview was comfortable, behavior based. She didn't go into specifics of job, just the department. Was told she was interviewing 7 candidates. The next step was the attorney interview which I wasn't called for. I'm sure most feel like they did well but I was really bummed, sounded like a great position and department. It's been over a month since my last interview and I had followed up several times about my status. My online status finally switched to "no longer under consideration" but never received email.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Minneapolis, MN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    There were two parts. The first was an online questionnaire conducted through UHG's employment website. The second was a video interview also conducted through the website, which the candidate had to complete within five days of receiving the email informing him or her of such. There was no human contact with a company representative during either phase.

The video interview focused on how the candidate handles work situations, what he or she considers his or her greatest achievements and challenges, etc. The candidate is encouraged to let his or her personality "shine."   1 Answer

    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.
