    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Colorado Springs, CO (US)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The initial contact was by their HR team in Austin, TX. They were very professional and cordial during that stage. They set up a face to face interview for me in Colorado Springs about 2 weeks after the initial contact. I arrived at the address given but found no listing for "UnitiedHealth Group" in the office directory. I finally asked someone outside the building and they laughed as if i was not in on the joke. They told me that this was indeed the address but that UnitedHealth actually partners with another small company for their IT work. No one ever mentioned this to me and it was greatly disappointing to me that I would not be an actual employee of UnitedHealth. The interview went well but the hiring manager seemed a little cold and distant. From what I learned about the company from this interview would probably keep me from applying there again.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (San Diego, CA (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Had 1 technical interview followed by 2 technical interviews at their location. I enjoyed talking to the first 2 engineers but the last was unbelievably awful and was trying to make me fail. He asked me such a difficult problem and purposely gave me some wrong info to see if I would catch it or not, changed the scenario while I was near done solving it, and clearly told me he'll notify the other interviewers that I did so poorly. I spoke to everyone else that interviewed with the company and they only had 1 or 2 technical interviews with simple problems. They were completely shocked at how I was treated by the last person. I'll make sure to never apply to this place ever again.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Austin, TX (US)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I had expected a very formal interview, but was surprised with how chill the interviewer was. The interview itself was very laid back, with the majority of the interview process consisting of the interviewer discussing items on my resume with me. The interviewers were very nice but understandably tired. However, they were very responsive when asked questions.
