Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in July 2020.

Interview

First met with Recruiter whi asked a few questions. Then was sent email arranging phone interview with regional manager for LA area. Thought it was strange, as the position is in the Pacific NW. The Manager asked questions about dealing with difficult clients in their homes, was I afraid of dogs, ect.

I asked how much time is given to commute between scheduled clients, how are client appointments given. Explained that traffic in this area could be reached slow. She said that you would give clients a fifteen minute window of time for arriving for their gome visit. When I pushed her for a more realistic clarification of what kind of scheduling info patients are told she said that when she was going to patient homes, ( before becoming a Manager, I guess) she would call patient the night before and tell them they are first:second/third on the mornings or afternoon visits scheduled.

She didn’t seem to like my asking her for more real world explanations of their Home visit scheduling scenarios.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview

    I received correspondence and an informal interview about my background the day after applying from the recruiter. It was several weeks before the hiring manager called me very early ~7:30am as a "screening." She only focused on the negative aspects of the job. She was concerned about me being a military spouse due to "longevity." She also seemed more concerned about my RN experience rather than my provider experience, which I felt odd. After correspondence with 3 recruiters trying to get an update, I was told by email SIX weeks after the "screening" that I was not selected. I suspected I was not chosen based upon my marital status. Despite this, I applied for another position for which I knew I lined up perfectly with my background and even spoke with the recruiter about submitting another application. I never received correspondence.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Tampa, FL (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Human Resource person was extremely helpful in providing the NP licensing information for Alabama. The Alabama Board of Nursing requires a collaborative physician be in place PRIOR to releasing an Alabama NP license, however, I was turned down for this particular position because I did not have an Alabama NP license. Catch-22 in place because of the Alabama NP licensing protocol. I have lost the opportunity to work at several organizations because I did not have an Alabama license. So instead of moving to Alabama next month as planned, I have had to move to Alabama immediately so I could try to find a collaborating MD so I could get my license. The UHG HR person reported she goes through this hundreds of times a month, being unable to hire highly qualified NPs because of the Catch-22. Her recommendation is that I obtain a PRN position anywhere at a smaller organization so I could get hired, obtain a collaborating MD, get my Alabama license then go get a full time job where I want. So I'm in Alabama jumping through the BON hoops.

    All phone interviews,you will be asked to elaborate about the info on your CV. I feel if you get a call, then you're most likely going to get the job. Managers are very busy, and don't have time to waste on folks who aren't UHG material.
