Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Falls Church, VA (US)) in April 2015.

Interview

The first part consists of 2 rounds of phone interviews. The first one is a lot easier, basically just to tell you about Lewin. The second is more formal and they ask you a few questions about healthcare. The second part is an on-site interview with three separate interviews and a lunch. The first interview discusses your qualitative background, the second your quantitative background and the third is more of a behavioral interview, tell me about a time when you overcame a challenge, etc. At the end of these interviews you have to take a writing assessment. You will analyze data from graphs, interpret them and have to write a policy recommendation in an hour. I didn't have time to even finish.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about a time where you took the initiative?

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Falls Church, VA (US)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Application package, introduction video, recruiter phone call, Lewin group management phone interview, in-person interview and small in-office writting sample. Drug screen and background check afterwards.

    Overall the process went smoothly and the interviewers were not trying to trick you. When I applied Lewin was trying hard to get more employees.

    Interview

    One sided 5 minute recorded interview. You have 30 seconds to think of an answer and 3 minutes to record the response. There is a timer going so it is a bit stressful. Some of the questions were unexpected for a behavioral interview. Overall, I did the best I could given the time constraints.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group.

    Interview

    First round was a behavioral interview that asks general questions about your resume/experience, what the position entails, and overview of the company. Went to final round interview- started off with 30 minute intro of the overview of the company. Then 3 back-to-back behavioral based interviews that assess quantitative, qualitative, and consulting skills. Ends with hour long writing assessment in which you use graphs to write a summary for a client.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group in January 2015.

    Interview

    Initially have a recorded interview through United Health Group on the website. After you'll be notified if you're invited down to Falls Church for an interview. Overview followed by four interviews and a writing assessment. Very relaxed environment, with friendly people. I think just being yourself and relaxed in the interview is really key.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Falls Church, VA (US)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Received a call from a recruiter and had a prelim phone interview the next week. After that, I was offered an in-person interview. That is a full day interview including a qualitative, quantitative, and consulting interview. They also have you do a simple timed writing. Also, they do reimburse for travel expenses (at least in my case) but it took them months to reimburse me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Falls Church, VA (US)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Phase 1 was an interview with the recruitment officer. Very short. It was more a gatekeeper interview to see if you match the qualifications.

    Phase 2 was an interview with a current Senior Research Analyst. Call took about 1hr. It was more of an opportunity for me to lay out my qualifications and ask questions.

    Phase 3 was they flew me into Falls Church for the interview. It was an all day interview including 4 interviews. One interview for qualitative skills, one for quantitative skills, one for consulting skills, a lunch with a current employee which should be treated as an interview, and a writing sample.

    However, they took over a month to get back to me that I did not receive an offer despite my attempts to get in contact with them. While it turns out they had a reason for this delay, I still found this frustrating and unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • They mostly wanted examples of different times I had faced difficulties in the workplace EG a project changes how do you change? They also wanted to know my specific quantitative skills.   Answer Question
