I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Chubb Corp.
Interview Details – I received a call inviting me in for an interview for the following week. I came in for an afternoon of four separate interviews 45-60 minutes in length. The questions were pretty standard and since I was prepared and had had some interview experience in the insurance industry so it wasn't that bad. I interviewed on a Tuesday and received an offer on Friday of the same week.
Interview Question – To be honest, there really weren't any curveballs. Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Chubb Corp in December 2013.
Interview Details – The process was very easy and laid back. I was asked in, talked one on one with a representative of the company, they asked a few questions regarding education, career goals, and personality.
Interview Question – Why would you want to switch careers from your current one to this one? Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Chubb Corp in September 2013.
Interview Details – It started with a phone interview that was fairly basic, your average phone interview. About two months (!) later I was brought in for the first round of in-person interviewing which was 5, 30 minute interviews each of which was with different HR or Management administrators. All of them asked mainly basic questions such as when was a time you worked with a team to come to a solution? or what is a time you had to negotiate? There was also a writing sample where you have to answer what the role of an underwriter is and what experience you have that is applicable to it. The second round of in-person interviewing was another 6, 30-minute interviews with branch managers from other cities. Similar questions, but some were more direct to insurance and underwriting.
Interview Question – How will you sell your insurance or company to someone who doesn't think they need insurance? How will you separate yourself from other businesses? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Chubb Corp.
Interview Details – Applied online and got a phone screen after 3-4 weeks. Phone interview were very general behavioral questions, took about 20-30minutes. Then got an offer to come in for an on-site interview, which were 6 interviews with different managers. There were about 30 candidates total in the pool and more than half of them had relatives working at the company already. I thought it was decent position for a recent college graduate like myself, but the trainee position consisted about a year long, and they put you in any branch they want you to work in after. Overall, it was good interview experience, although the underwriter managers seemed little uptight.
Interview Question – general behavioral questions Answer Question
I applied online - interviewed at Chubb Corp in May 2013.
Interview Details – Found the job from indeed. Job description was interesting and applied online. Few weeks later was tele screened with standard behavioral style questions which took about 1/2hr. Few weeks later got a call to set up group interview. Went in and met with 2 managers who seemed to be very matter of fact and not very warm. They stressed on my abilities in regards to multi-tasking and organizational skills. Then into being able to evaluate situations. I could tell they were trying to see if I was a good fit for the position but they came off as cold and uninviting. Well it seemed like one would be the nice one and the other was the serious one. Overall it was an odd experience because I could not get a grasp as to what this job really entails and its responsibilities. Seemed like a one sided interview as they really wanted to "test" me. Never heard back from them but everything happens for a reason as I got a job with a different insurance company.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Chubb Corp in January 2009.
Interview Details – Caught the attention of the TIS department manager by showing my interest and enthusiasm towards Chubb. I was then contacted for a phone interview, consisting of generic behavioral interview questions. Within a few days, I was asked to come to the Warren headquarters and interview with the leads of each SBU.
Interview Question – What can you tell me about Underwriting? This was a very general question. Very difficult to answer without preparation or prior industry work experience. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Non-existent in my case.

4) Received request for 2nd round of in-person interviews
-first interview was with the AVP of commercial underwriting; asked very few questions, didn't even seem interested, talked mostly football (?)
second interview was with VP of commercial underwriting; this interview was odd, she kept bringing up the show "The Office" and how working at Chubb would be nothing like working in "The Office" (thanks, really?)
-Last but not least, IQ test; there were lots of questions, mostly math, no calculators and we only had about 15 minutes, just answer as many as you can (it was difficult)
Interview Question – My college education was bare on the mathematics side so the VP asked me to justify why my education sufficiently displays my mathematical/financial acumen. Answer Question
