    Interview

    I was contacted by UnitedHealth for an interview on my college campus after speaking with a recruiter at a career fair. The interviewer was nice and the questions were normal behavioral questions. The next day, I was contacted for an onsite interview. Looking forward to it later this week!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Minnetonka, MN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very easy interview process. Went to Optum and had interviews with others going for the full-time position, but most were going for the internships. Had a recent grad panel answer our questions and then had two 30 minute interviews in a room where all interviews were going on at the same time. The hiring managers were very easy to talk to and asked 4 very simple behavioral questions each. They also would go off and ask about the answer in a more personable way so it felt like we were just having a conversation rather than an interview. The rest of the time was given to me to ask them questions which was nice.

    Interview Questions

      Name a time you and someone didn't see eye to eye on something because of differences and how did you handle it.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Interview

    I've been applying for CSR for the past month and would hear nothing back. I checked on their website again one day and they had just put up a job posting that same day for CSR. I applied and the next day I got an email stating they were interested and would like to give me a phone interview. A few days later I had the interview. The recruiter was nice and sweet, she said I answered great and to her I was perfect for the job. Now I would have to wait for a manager to review my phone interview/application & would get a call back/email in a few days to 2 weeks. Now it's time to wait. She asked me 3 situational questions, computer questions, and told me more about the job. Overall, it was quite easy. Felt more like a conversation rather than an interview. Hoping I get the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I submitted the application online through their company job page. I heard back within 24 hours to submit a digital interview. The digital interview consisted of 5 questions that were about your background, technology you have learned, etc. You were given 30 seconds to read the question and then 3 minutes to answer the question. The whole thing was recorded and sent to their recruiters. I didn't hear back for 2 weeks and they came to our career fair so I went and talked to the recruiter about it and gave her my resume and she said she would look over my profile. Make sure you contact them after your digital interview, otherwise I may not have heard back! I heard back a few days later and am now invited to an on site "assessment" interview for 3 hours. Looking forward to it!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview

    Video interview, phone interview, then interview with director, manager, and potential co workers. I was probably 5-10 years older than said co workers and they were a little insulting in that they assumed you didn't know certain things critical to the job, such as what user acceptance testing was. Seems very target like culture, director admitted they are very picky on who they hire which kind of felt like a dig to me.

    Interview Questions

    • Everything went well with the hiring manager, but the even the manager warned me of her boss that's she's very "needy". I interviewed with the VP and though she wanted things streamlined and simple, she was anything but simple. She kept getting caught up on how many people I managed and we just couldn't get passed it unfortunately. I don't know think I would be able to work under someone with that style of leadership or lack of it.   Answer Question
