    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CNA (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    First, I did a brief phone interview with a recruiter. Then, a week later I went in for a 'speed dating' interview set-up. There were about 10 managers/interviewers and about 20 candidates. Each candidate spent 3-4 minutes with each interviewer. The time went so quickly that in most cases, the interviewer only had the opportunity to ask one or two questions. All behavioral-based questions -- typical behavioral-based questions: tell me about a time when you gave good customer service.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at CNA (El Paso, TX).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a CNA recruiter who found my resume on linkedin. She asked me to apply for various underwriting positions because my skills matched them. I applied and a few days later she called and asked me about an hours worth of in depth questions which I amswered truthfully. She called the next two days with more questions from the hiring manager. By the end of the week I was scheduled for face to face interviews with several people at their Hub office. Prior to the interview they had me complete a HR hire packet online as well as some testing. When I arrived to my interview, the first person I was meeting with was 30 minutes late and forgot they had an appointment with me. During this interview things went well and were enjoyable. Talked about CNA, the department, and my background. When the second interviewer came in, they brought another party into the room to grill me and humiliate me. The entire time I couldn't speak because this person interrupted me and mocked me. I felt so disrespected. It was like they were playing mind games and really trying to get me to mess up. Then comes the third or now fourth interviewer who was sweet and did the same thing the first interviewer did. After that I met with what I am guessing the manager of the entire office and he was just as nasty as the others I mentioned. It was almost threatening like. Basically I couldn't wait to get out of that place. So when this was finished I was asked to contact the recruiter and she said they loved me and would contact me at the end of the week. The next day I received an email saying that CNA was going to proceed to hire me. Several hours later I get few more emails saying no I wasn't and following that the recruiter calls and tells me my skill set was too light and they were going with someone else. Awesome! I wasn't going to accept the job after going through the worst interview of my life and wasting 4 hours of my day. The people in that office looked miserable and it wasn't a good fit. It's just wasteful to sit there and grill me for hours on the telephone during the recruitment stage about my skills when you guys seeked me out because of those skills only not to go further because they are so light. Doesn't make any sense.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at CNA (Chicago, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    After being referred by a fellow alumus of Cornell, I had a phone interview that lasted about 45 minutes. I had an initial discussion with a recruiter, who arranged a phone interview with a Director level in the organization. The call seemed to go well, but then i never heard from anyone again. Also, no one responded to my e-mails thanking folks for the interview and inquiring about next steps. A simple clsomg e-mail or response to my inquiries would have been appreciated.
