    Human Resources Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at AXIS Capital Holdings.

    Interview Details

    Initially had screening call which was brief with no difficult questions. Second, face interview with dept head who did not know how to interview and didn't ask me any skill or experience questions just wanted to get to know me as a person. Third round of interviews was with the team (4 people). Again, it felt like it was an interview for a sorority - as I was told in preparation we want to see if you can get along with them. The office space was nice - well maintained and newer furnishings, the people I met all appeared friendly on the surface but there was an undercurrent of feelings that I couldn't identify. Filled out employment application, they did background check (no credit check) and no other tests. Easy process, but the decision took 4 weeks.

    Negotiation Details
    Set my rate and they accepted. Normally I was told they do not negotiate. Take their offer or leave it! (Which is very inflexible and full of themselves.)

    Underwriting Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at AXIS Capital Holdings in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The entire interview process went very well especially speaking to 3 individuals including a former boss of a former supervisor at one of my past workplaces. I assumed that I was in the running for the position but the end result was not in my favor as the company left me to hang & dry without a phone call, letter or simple e-mail stating that I was not selected for the job.
