I have seen this position around a couple of time and didn't know if it was a scam or not. I have 2 years as a nurse and I am sure this would benefit me and allow me to work at home woohoo.

I seen this on thehomejob.net and they have other good jobs on there also.

I've been an RN for 12 yrs - mostly specialized ICUs. I've done case management & utilization review activities in my previous jobs. I've met RNs that have worked for insurance companies doing "work at home" telephone case management type positions, so I know they exist!

Ive still got my fingers crossed for an interview!

Does anyone know what their background checks entail? I have an upcoming interview and am concerned that a previous employer is likely to say I would not be eligible for rehire. I am assuming this would ruin any chance I have at obtaining the position.

I just wanted to update...I moved to Louisville & continued applying for various positions at Humana. I applied for a certain position in November & was called for an interview Dec 12. In the interview (for a clinical claims RN position, not work at home), I was told they would make decisions before the holidays. Holidays come & go & I figure I didn't get it, but decided to call the recruiter who set up my interview & inquire. She told me that they opened up more positions & would have decisions made this week. I got a call yesterday with a nice job offer! Start date is 2/13/12!!!

Oh wow, good for you. Hopefully I'll be joining you. I interviewed in late November for a start date in early December. I was never able to find out if they ever hired someone. I continued applying, had an interview set for earlier this week and they called me the morning of the interview to cancel because they realized they had already talked to me. The HR person said they liked me from the previous interview so I didn't need to talk to them again and that I should hear from her by the end of the week. So, I'm thinking I have a good chance of receiving an offer. It is for a position that also starts Feb. 13.

I'd love to hear any feedback you may have about what the next step is in case I do get an offer. I thought it was odd that their application didn't ask for references and I'm sure there'll be a drug screen, but other than that I have no idea how large companies do things.

The hiring recruiter sent me an email asking for 3 specific dates/times when she could call. I thought it was for an interview for another position I applied for. She was actually calling to give me the job offer & take a verbal acceptance.

After that I got about 6 different emails -
1. email offer letter
2. background check email - verified info to be sent to company that does background checks
3. Onboarding info, including electronic acceptance of position
4. More onboarding info
5. drug testing info
6. info regarding training...which basically said more info will come in the near future

Thank you so much! I was concerned that maybe I should call people this weekend and ask if I could use them as a reference (assuming I hear good news). I'm getting the impression from you that they won't ask for this, which is good, because I'm always a little concerned that former co-workers I would use as a reference would blab to my current co-workers.

Just wanted to report that I finally received an offer today for a Clinical Advisor position starting 2/13! To anyone still trying--keep applying. I applied for an insane number of positions but once I finally got a face to face interview all went well.

Monday will be at the corporate office and then on Tuesday I go to the Waterfront Bldg, 3rd floor, Belle of Lou training room. My guess is that we'll have some training together, if just the benefits info, basic computer log on, etc. I found out this past Monday that my manager will be based in Wisconsin--I didn't expect that!

I find out Monday, what my schedule is the rest of the week. I'm sure we have most of the 1st week together as it's the "basics" that all nurses have to know. See you Monday! I will be in a red & black suit.

Oh wow. Now you're making me wonder. I've been wearing scrubs so long I had to go out and buy clothes. I bought dress pants assuming that would be the dress code. When I received an email from my manager in Wisconsin she said that after the first day the dress code was casual so I called to ask if that meant casual dress clothes or khakis and she said khakis. I couldn't believe it. I have no receipts so I'm stuck with what I have. Do you know anything about the dress code, other than the first day is to be formal?

I'll look for you in your suit. Not sure what I'm wearing yet.

Had the conversation today with supervisor - business casual after 1st day. MY supervisor defined "business casual" as - dress pants with a blouse or sweater set. Skirt & sweater set or blouse. Basically, no jacket or suit needed.

I wouldn't return your dress pants...while you can wear khakis it's never out of place to dress a little nicer the first while...makes a good impression ;)

I've been here almost 1 year and LOVE LOVE LOVE my job. It's not for everyone. I sometimes do miss the day to day "hands on" nursing activities, but I make up for it with lots of critical thinking skills. I do NOT miss the hospital politics, hours, call, etc AT ALL. I work 8 - 4:30 mon - fri. I occasionally work from home on the weekends if I have things piling up that I need to take care of, or if I'm making up time from being off for an appointment. I've had 2 minor promotions in less than 1 year and can only see my career with Humana going up from here!

I'm not going to discuss $$ specifics, because salary offers are dependent on a lot of factors. I make as much as I made in the hospital with call & shift diff as I do now with no OT/call/crazy hours. I'm a single mother and for me having security of schedule was paramount. I get all major holidays off and have flexible scheduling for appointment, school inservices, etc.

The only way you will know is if you try...

Samantha, which nurse position are you applying for? I too have a second phone interview next week. I've applied for their cancer nurse navigator position. Apparently, orientation training is 12 weeks, did they say anything like that to you? Just making sure I heard it correctly.

I hope you all can guide my success and help me. I had phone interview yesterday for Humana, National RN Case Manager. I received my denial this morning. I froze a little bit during my answer to the questions they asked. I've been a nurse for 10 years, no management experience, does this make a difference to Humana.

I haven't interviewed for 18yrs, never a phone interview, my strength is face to face. My question what are they looking for in your answer? What type of responses are they looking? Your skill utilized as a nurse interacting with patient care or how you managed a situation.

One of my questions was; "Name a time you faced a difficult situation on the job and how did you handle it?"
Second question; "Name a time you faced adversity on the job and how did you overcome it?"
What format do they want me to answer that in? Hope someone will read this post and respond. thx

First off keep trying don't let a denial get you down.

Likely, they're looking for someone who does have extensive case management experience with knowledge of insurance, DME & home health needs of a wide population & health conditions. There also could have been only one position open & thousands applied. So don't let it get you down I know many that have applied several times before they were hired.

Also, not being fast to respond or difficulty with answering could have also been a factor. Most of the work at home positions for nurses you need to be quick on your feet because member questions at times can completely come out of left field.

Brush up on interviewing skills, have a glass of water with you. My interview process was very draining 3 interviews all lasting about an hour each. You finish wondering if you put your best food forward. Good luck & keep trying. If you have any nursing certificates have them in your resume.

Thank you Jan for getting back to my reply so quickly and thank you for the advise. The funny thing is my strongest qualities are being quick on my feet and my communication and interpersonal skills. But somehow my nerves stuck my feet in cement. I did not see that coming. It was all of a sudden my mouth was on the ceiling and my brain could not get to it, lol. I am very competitive so now my mind want to be on a mission to conquer this job but I am going to try and sit back be quiet and see what else comes my way.

If you have any question response examples that I could view to see if my answers are directed to the correct response that would be helpful.

Again thank you for your insight.

Anyone have any information to share yet? I got my plane and hotel reservations. Actually had them for a while and didn't realize it as my email sent it to the spam folder. So far all I know is that meals and airport baggage fees are paid out of pocket and we have to submit an expense report to get reimbursed for them. And I got a phone number for the hotel to have them pick me up from the airport when I get there. Other than that, I just keep getting told to expect an email next week on Wednesday with all information I need on it.

I am also looking in to the Work from Home case manager positions. I have applied to several here in Cincinnati. Have most of you applied to those near you, or applied to those throughout the country? I have been a nurse for 9 years and really interested in Case management, particularly being able to work from home. Any tips anyone may have, besides keep applying? Also does anyone have any contacts? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!!
