I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at CNA in November 2012.
Interview Details – Began with an on-campus interview for recruiting at my school with about 10 other applicants. I did 30 minutes in one room with a current underwriter who asked mostly behavioral question, and then switched to another underwriter and did another 30 minutes of behavioral questions. They both told me about the organization, their specific positions and what they thought the program was about. I didn't hear from them for a few weeks and then I got a call saying they wanted me to interview for super day. I went to the downtown office and there were 8 applicants interviewing for 4 different trainee locations. I met with VPs from the other cities and they were really curious to see if I had the right type of mindset for the job. I met with 4 different managers for 30 - 45 minutes a piece and then headed out.
Interview Question – Why do you want to be an underwriter? What do you know about commercial insurance? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not much negotiating on my end. It was a very good offer.
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at CNA in December 2011.
Interview Details – Met a guy at a career fair, weeks later I got an email or call to schedule a phone interview. Passed that (basic questions about resume). Went to office in Dallas for an interview. It was three 1:1 30-minute interviews. Mostly behavioral questions, but also asked about experiences with problems.

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CNA in January 2012.
Interview Details – Called for a phone screen, later followed by a phone interview with HR. This moved to an onsite interview with 6 various people from the company (low level managers to department heads to VPs). After the interview was asked by HR to fill out an online survey. After about a week, received an email saying that I would not be asked for an offer.
