    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Catlin Group.

    Interview

    Not enough questions asked of interviewer. Topics bounced back and forth with too much discussion of past employees. Benefits were discussed in detail and were a selling point, especially since I was unhappy at my former place of work. Opportunity for growth was discussed, which was a positive.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Little negotiation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Catlin Group.

    Interview

    Application is made online where you fill out a general form and answer several career motivation and competency based questions. I was then invited to take 3 online tests, numerical, verbal and logical. These were all standard SHL tests. I was then invited to telephone interview which was competency based, I didn't find it particularly challenging, some of their questions were very open ended which was a little frustrating.

    Interview

    The application process had many questions. Then given a situational judgement test which was fairly straight forward. Was given 2 days to complete this test. Next was given 3 tests, Numerical reasoning, Verbal Reasoning and Logical reasoning tests. All had to be done together in 48 hours. I failed due to having do all tests in one day. Make sure you have the time to do all the tests is the best advice

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Catlin Group (London, England (UK)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Online application, online tests, telephone interview, face to face interview. The telephone interviewer was lovely, but it was an external interviewer. They didn't give me much information before the face to face interview. It was an hour long technical interview with two interviewers, who were awkward and made it a very uncomfortable experience. It wasn't until after the interview that I received the email telling me that it was going to be a technical interview not a competency, which I wasn't particularly impressed by.
