    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at CNA (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with HR, then a series of in-person interviews all in one morning. HR was disorganized and some of the scheduled interviews didn't happen because of scheduling mistakes. I was asked hundreds of redundant "personality" questions. After the interview, I was asked to fill out a direct deposit and background check form, only to be later rejected weeks later. Very unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CNA.

    Interview

    I first received a phone interview which went into detail about the position and they asked a few behavioral questions. I was then asked to do an in person interview the following week. The in person was a meeting with two people, an HR specialist and the branch director. The HR specialist was very nice and easy to talk to. I had a great conversation with her. My problem was with the branch director from the moment I sat down for the interview I knew he didn't want to be there. He only asked me one question about how much I knew about surety bonds and explained to me why he's not happy with his job. That was a bit of downer and nobody wants that in their interview. I got a call a week later saying I didn't get the job, but was a very competitive candidate. At least they let you down easy.

    Interview

    I mainly dealt with an internal HR specialist who was my best friend until I didn't feel comfort providing documentation confirming my salary, my word all of a sudden wasn't good enough. After I received an offer I told them I would need few days to consider, which made them very angry and told me my offer will expire in 3 days if I don't accept.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at CNA (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Phone processed was quick and thorough. Very professional from hr person in Chicago. Passed phone interview, and HR person referred me to the underwriting director, said I will hear from him in a few days. I never did. After multiple phone calls, and emails, no follow up from HR person.Follow up is terrible. It just so happened, this same HR person had referred me back in October of 2014 for a 2nd interview and I never heard back. Glad I have a job and was not waiting on this one possibility. I was trying to relocated to FLORIDA.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at CNA.

    Interview

    I received a phone interview, and then they moved on to other candidates. I assume it was because I was asking for too much in salary for the position. They were offering no more than $32,000 a year for someone (myself) with an insurance license and college degree. I mentioned that the only reason I am asking for more than that is the rent increases in the Denver area, which is a well-known fact. She replied that I will have a very hard time finding more than that with my experience level in the Denver area. I now make 40k, this company doesn't care about their employee's happiness or compensation level. I was insulted that she told me I wouldn't make more than that, and I will never interview for this company again.
