Claim Service Center Examiner II Interview

Claim Service Center Examiner II
Simsbury, CT

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.

Underwriter Interview

Underwriter
Warren, NJ

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.

Difficult Interview

Underwriter Trainee Interview

Underwriter Trainee
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Chubb Corp in May 2010.

Interview Details – 1) Applied through their website
2) Received request for initial phone interview
-very generic questions; mainly questions about past experiences and how you think it can be applied in this position; total of about 20 minutes
3) Received request for in-person interviews
-there were 8 other candidates in my pool; we were 1 of a few pools (I don't know exactly how many)
-first interview was with an senior underwriter
-second interview was with HR rep
-total, the entire day took up about 4 hours
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

Senior Premium Auditor Interview

Senior Premium Auditor

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Chubb Corp.

Interview Details – The process starts with interviewing branch HR Mgr, then the branch and/or territory Loss Control Mgr will interview and expect the Premium Audit Mgr to interview as well. In some cases the branch manager will also interview. Expect both an initial telephone interview and then a face to face if you make the cut. Chubb is a very relationship oriented company. They expect the best and they expect a strong relationship building individual both internally and externally.

Interview Question – There really is a not a difficult question other than technical questions in regards to the audit process, account management and the occasional question on dealing with difficult clients.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Their initial offer was less than what I expected but they finally agreed to pay what I requested.
