    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Chubb Corp.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted after applying online for a full time position. Had a phone interview for the full time positions but was asked back for interviews for the internship which was a glorified temp job. Took a while for me to finally come in for an interview. Three separate interviews with different managers in the department.

    Commercial Underwriting Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Chubb Corp in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • How will you sell your insurance or company to someone who doesn't think they need insurance? How will you separate yourself from other businesses?   Answer Question

    Underwriter Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Chubb Corp.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Claim Service Center Examiner II Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Chubb Corp in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Analyst Interview

    The process took a day - interviewed at Chubb Corp in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I have interviewed last month (June 2012) in Warren, NJ for an analyst position. I've met with 4 different people. First of all, my interview was half an hour later than scheduled. They had me sitting in the lobby waiting. Finally someone came for me and I've met with the first person to interview me. The woman was telling me about the party she just attended for a company instead of describing the position. I felt she lacked direction and didn't want to interview me at all. She brushed me off to the second person pretty quickly. At this point I was ready to tell them I'm no longer interested because I didn't like the way I was treated. It took me an hour to get to the location. I got the same feeling from the other 3 people. They were more interested in offering me the lowest salary possible rather than finding the perfect candidate and explaining the duties of the job. They kept on asking about my current salary range on several occassions and I felt like some of them lacked business intelligence. I didn't like the process. I've accepted another offer with much better company where I was treated professionaly since the initial contact. Chubb interview was such a waste of time.
