    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Express Scripts.

    Interview

    had an informational interview early on, so my process may be a bit different. Applied via website. Contacted by recruiter nearly 1 month later for phone screening. A month after that, there was an interview with two directors, pretty much a pre-screening. Nearly two months later, I was offered the job.

    Interview

    Talked on the phone with hr followed by a flight and tour of the facilities. Spoke with multiple people to get a better understanding of the company. It only took about two weeks to hear back from. Only down side I believe they don't call if you didn't get the interview.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted by recruiter a week later. Standard interview questions for analysts, moderate difficulty as you advanced further in the rounds. Interview questions and style seemed to vary based on style of recruiter and hiring manager with some having a greater practical vs theoretical focus. Interviews were interactive, allowed questions to better understand role.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Express Scripts.

    Interview

    Extremely long for any in-house, non-call center position. It took over 2 months to schedule my second and third interview. By the time I was interviewed, you could tell the managers had already made their decision and could care less about any of the answers I provided. It was a waste of time.

    Interview

    There were three face to face interviews with various members of the management team. This was followed by a formal presentation with a topic of your choice. Just meant to make sure you are able to speak to a client intelligently. Overall, it was a little over the top, but I guess needed for all the applications they typically receive.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Express Scripts.

    Interview

    Hiring has changed. Finance is interested only in individuals from high ranking colleges. The interview process is multi-phased and requires that the individual be seen as a person who is a good 'culture' fit. Prefers younger people who are willing to work for less to gain experience and won't complain about the enormous amount of hours.

    Spoke with a recruiter who setup the interview with almost no questions at all. Interviewed with a SR manager as well as a director in Finance. They were more interested in my educational background and the courses I completed in graduate school than my actual work experience, even though i was nearly five years removed from school. No institutional questions were asked. Felt like they were really trying to gauge my personality more than skills. I think the frame of mind was at the time, that they can teach pharmaceutical pricing to anyone, the individual would just have to be willing to work hard and learn.
