    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Chubb Corp in December 2014.

    Interview

    The process took awhile. I received an email to have a phone interview/screen, and it took place about three weeks after that. After a few days, I got an email asking me to come in to interview with a bunch of their actuaries (around 6 if I remember right). That process was great – I went to both their campuses in New Jersey and the people I met were really friendly. You could tell they really enjoyed doing what they do and that Chubb put them in a position to succeed. The questions weren't overly difficult, mostly behavioral (although there were some brain teasers and technical questions). They took about two months to get back to me though, which is the only part of the process that I didn't really enjoy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Chubb Corp in October 2014.

    Interview

    The process is long and drawn out, which seemed to be due to a lack of organization. I sent in my resume and I received an email 11 days later about setting up phone interview. The phone interview was set up for 2 days later. The phone interview went well and the interviewer said she would recommend the company set up a face to face interview for me. She said someone will let me know if they want to proceed with the interviewing. I was thinking I would get a response in a few days. I called Chubb after 2 weeks and they said I was still being considered, but things just must be slow. After 3 weeks I had given up. I then got an email or call (don't remember) to set up the face to face. The face to face happened about a month after the phone interview.
    I went through that. I feel like I usually can tell with people if they liked me or not. I didn't have the best feeling, but I didn't have the worst feeling either. I felt like I answered the questions well, but I didn't feel like I really bonded with either interviewer very well. I have experience though, and if it was about substance, and not about being best friends, I think it went excellent. Since the process dragged on, I asked both interviewers about how long before I would hear back, and they said they had interviews the following week and I should expect something in about 2 weeks. I heard nothing, so I sent follow up emails for the next month. They never responded to anything I sent. After 1 month, the writing was on the wall, but I continued following up for a few weeks to try to force them to acknowledge me, but to no avail. I took a day off to meet them, took the time to send a thank you email and about 6 follow up emails (not in an overbearing way, just after about a weeks times). The tone of email was always friendly and sincere, even though I started to get frustrated after the third one. IT's been 3 months, and they have never even bothered to say the position was filled or anything. I thought this company was supposed to be top notch, but I found them unorganized and pretty unprofessional with my short experience. I'd never interview with them again.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Chubb Corp (Warren, NJ) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I had a telephone screening interview in late May, 2014 and a first round of interviews in June. Then I received an email thanking me for my interest but the company was following up with other candidates. About three weeks later, I received a call from a Chubb recruiting professional. She said the email was sent in error and I was still a candidate for the role. I had a second round of interviews in August and a third round in September. I sent a couple of follow-up emails in October but did not receive a response. In November I received an email from the recruiting professional telling me she would call me by the end of the week to bring me up to date on the status of the search. She never called and I followed up with three emails and did not receive a response to any of the three.

Three separate interviews with different managers in the department.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Chubb Corp (Warren, NJ).

    Interview

    Applied online and got a phone screen after 3-4 weeks. Phone interview were very general behavioral questions, took about 20-30minutes. Then got an offer to come in for an on-site interview, which were 6 interviews with different managers. There were about 30 candidates total in the pool and more than half of them had relatives working at the company already. I thought it was decent position for a recent college graduate like myself, but the trainee position consisted about a year long, and they put you in any branch they want you to work in after. Overall, it was good interview experience, although the underwriter managers seemed little uptight.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Chubb Corp (Whitehouse Station, NJ) in September 2013.

    Interview

    It started with a phone interview that was fairly basic, your average phone interview. About two months (!) later I was brought in for the first round of in-person interviewing which was 5, 30 minute interviews each of which was with different HR or Management administrators. All of them asked mainly basic questions such as when was a time you worked with a team to come to a solution? or what is a time you had to negotiate? There was also a writing sample where you have to answer what the role of an underwriter is and what experience you have that is applicable to it. The second round of in-person interviewing was another 6, 30-minute interviews with branch managers from other cities. Similar questions, but some were more direct to insurance and underwriting.

    I applied online – interviewed at Chubb Corp (Simsbury, CT) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Found the job from indeed. Job description was interesting and applied online. Few weeks later was tele screened with standard behavioral style questions which took about 1/2hr. Few weeks later got a call to set up group interview. Went in and met with 2 managers who seemed to be very matter of fact and not very warm. They stressed on my abilities in regards to multi-tasking and organizational skills. Then into being able to evaluate situations. I could tell they were trying to see if I was a good fit for the position but they came off as cold and uninviting. Well it seemed like one would be the nice one and the other was the serious one. Overall it was an odd experience because I could not get a grasp as to what this job really entails and its responsibilities. Seemed like a one sided interview as they really wanted to "test" me. Never heard back from them but everything happens for a reason as I got a job with a different insurance company.
