I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CNA (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.
Easy and quick process. Found them at college career fair, I then had an interview on campus next day, the final round interview was two weeks later with a networking social the night before, they called me with an offer later that same day. Seemed like a great place to work, but I chose another job because it seemed heavier on finance than Accounting and I was an. Accounting major.

I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at CNA (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.
I went to a business career fair hosted by my university, and applied the next day through university career website. They e-mailed me within a week to schedule an interview on campus. I had two interviews back to back 30 minutes each with two different people, both of them really nice. The first person had a higher position within the company, so it was a little bit more of a serious interview, the second one was with a very nice lady that made the environment very friendly, very professional. It was a great experience overall. Both of them asked me to talk about my self and then asked a few questions.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CNA (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.
I networked with CNA at my school's career fair. I received an email the next day saying they reviewed my resume and would like me to apply to the ARBA program through my school's career website and on the official CNA website. I applied and was selected for an on-campus interview the following week. I had two back to back interviews (an hour in total) with two different CNA representatives. I received an email a week later saying I was not selected to continues the interview process.

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CNA in August 2015.
Applied via university, received an email for a phone interview 2 weeks later. Asked a few questions to begin to make sure you're qualified for the program, such as, having a 3.0 gpa, authorized to work in the us, any family members that work for CNA, etc.
Helpful (2)No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CNA (Chicago, IL).
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.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CNA.
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.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CNA (Anaheim, CA) in June 2015.
Applied online and received a phone call a couple weeks later. The phone interview took about 30 minutes. The person who interviewed me was of the opposite sex, which was a plus. Overall, the phone screen was some what of a challenge but if you have researched basic behavioral quesitons, you should be fine.
