Underwriter Trainee Interview

Anonymous Employee

Interviewed at Chubb Corp

Interview Details – The process started with several rounds of phone interviews with senior underwriters. The questions were straight forward for the most part and seemed to be more conversational. After the phone interviews came the in office interviews. These interviews were conducted by managers and the questions were geared more towards the position itself.

Underwriting Trainee Interview

Underwriting Trainee

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

Underwriter Trainee Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Warren, NJ

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.

Difficult Interview

Underwriter Trainee Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
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

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Chubb Corp in October 2011.

Interview Details – Attended information session and applied with resume, cover letter and transcript. Interview was mostly behavioural, resume based and asked questions about my previous work experiences. It was 3-30min sessions with a two person panel every time. Interviewers were courteous and professional. I thought it went really well, but didn't get second rounds.
