    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Minneapolis, MN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    1. UHG is famous for posting jobs they never intend to fill with outside candidates; they will show you a dozen job listings, but interview for fewer than that. The cultural norm is "Minnesota Nice", which we all know as "passive-aggressive behavior".

    2 .OPTUM is the fastest growing and most profitable division and seems more responsive than UHG, some regional offices are where candidates get critical experience, then move on since there is a middle-management logjam.

    3. HQ Diversity is not a strength, and neither is speed. A gaggle of HR gals who are there to keep applications coming in, but weeks of waiting between interview cycles is common. Have a back up prospective employer. UHG is very smug and political. UHG doesn't pay to relocate below Director level very often, if ever.

    4. The MO at UHG is to cancel budgeted positions if they don't get candidates they like or compare externals to internal candidates and hire the internal rather than raise headcount.

    Interview Questions

    • Introductory questions confirming work experience and education. Several Behavioral and situational questions about prior ROI or project achievements, stakeholder management, "handling" conflicting resources and "challenging" personalities.   1 Answer

    The process as long, but worth it. Applied in August about a month later I was notified I was selected for a video interview. 2 weeks later the 1st phone interview was scheduled. 2 weeks after that the 2nd phone interview was scheduled. I received an offer a week later.

    I applied online. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview

    Multiple rounds of interviews and a lengthy process to say the least. Video interview and then multiple phone interviews. Connection between narrative during this process and day to day varies from each other.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and the following day received an invitation for a video interview.

    The video interview can be awkward if you have not done before, and not every company handles this format the same. Some will ask for written responses to questions, some do not set a time limit for preparation, etc. For this particular interview, you have a question that pops up on the screen, you have 30 seconds to prepare and 3 minutes to answer the question. You only have one opportunity to record each response, so be sure to keep that in mind.

    I had issues halfway through my video interview with the connection to the software, and was booted out. Since I wasn't able to look back at my responses and see where the glitch happened, or re-record that response, along with the pressure that I was feeling with the time limits, I decided that it would be best to withdraw my application.

    All in all, video interviews have their pros and cons. They can be beneficial for recruiters to sift through the volumes of applications/resumes more efficiently. However, they can also be perceived as cold and distant, since it's just you and the computer, and lacks 2-way dialogue with a live person.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview

    Took almost two months, mostly email and phone communications. Included the "recorded video" interview. Recruiter was very helpful during the process. In person interviews were straight forward, if not a little clerical. Everyone was friendly in general and very open about the company, challenges and culture. I was glad to see an automated recruiting systems actually seem to work for a change.
