Senior Technical Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Saint Paul, MN

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Travelers Companies in June 2010.

Interview Details – Initial communication was via response email with a follow up screening interview over the phone. This was followed by two in person interviews on different days; one with a small group from the department (basically another screening interview) and another, later interview with a "committee" that asked very typical "situational" questions.

Interview Question – Please describe a situation in which you failed miserably and how you handled the failure.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There wasn't much negotiating. I was able to secure some additional vacation.

Human Resources Assistant II Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Saint Paul, MN

I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Travelers Companies in March 2014.

Interview Details – I went through a staffing agency and was called for an in-person interview. I met with a supervisor and then the manager of the team separately. Both women were extremely friendly and did a great job of explaining the position (which turned out to be completely different than the description given to me by the staffing agency). There was quite a bit of overlap in their questions but they were fairly easy. The interview process didn't feel stressful; although they were writing down much of what I said, the two interviewers were quick to smile and made me feel comfortable.

Interview Question – Tell me about a co-worker that you didn't like or had trouble working with.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The commute to downtown St. Paul would have been very long from my house. It was also a contract position and I wanted something more stable.
