    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Hanover Insurance.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with Hanover for an internship. Application itself was long and time consuming. I received a phone interview where they asked basic questions dealing with school, experience and if I would be willing to relocate. They came onto campus for my second round interview and I met with two people from HR. One of the best interviews I have been on, they were really personable and gave you a great idea of the company. Final round interview was at The Hanover. Sat in an interview suite and met with 5 people from my potential department. The interviews all took place over two and a half hours. Met everyone from directors to the the vice president of the department. Received a call about two weeks later and got offered the internship position.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Hanover Insurance.

    Interview Details

    For me, I was asked to come in and interview with 4 different people for about 20 minutes each. 3 of the people I met with were very laid back and we had more of a casual conversation more than an interview. One of the interviewers asked behavioral questions, nothing unexpected really.

    Underwriting Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I was interviewed over the phone initially. Basic, textbook interview questions such as strengths, weaknesses, etc. Followed up with four half-hour interviews in person. This consisted of mainly experience and behavioral based questions. I found the interviewers pleasant and informative for the most part. There was quite a bit of confusion in the questions I had in regards to the position from the different parties, with conflicting answers. The final interview was with a VP. He was fairly vague in regards to the position, again no concrete answers.

    Interview Details

    I had one phone interview and two on-site interviews. There was nothing too complicated or unexpected, very behavioral based. Everyone was very nice, welcoming, and willing to answer any question I had.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was to share an experience where I felt discouraged and how I got past it. The interview felt like it was more to gauge whether I'd fit into the culture.   Answer Question

    The offer was higher than I expected. I accepted right away.
