Interviewed at Hanover Insurance

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 Question – 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

Negotiation Details – The offer was higher than I expected. I accepted right away.

Salesforce Administrator Interview

Salesforce Administrator
Worcester, MA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Hanover Insurance.

Interview Details – I was contacted by an internal recruiter about the job opening. I had a phone screening then was contacted by another internal recruiter to arrange an in-person interview - they had only 1 day available and told me that I had to interview then, no other choice was available. I also had to fill out an online application and background check authorization. The interview was fast-paced - I had 4 interviews with different managers one after another for 3 hours straight. I contacted the internal recruiter after 4 days to check on my status and was emailed a canned rejection letter.

Future Leaders Interview

Future Leaders

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

Interview Details – I applied through the college's recruitment office after being recommended by a professor. First round of interviews involved two interviewers who asked basic questions, such as interest in Hanover, why would I be an asset at the company, and what skills could I bring to the table.

I was called back for the second round which took place at Hanover's corporate headquarters which involved 4, 20 minute interviews. The questions were not necessarily difficult, just tiresome as most ask the general questions, so its hard not to feel repetitive.

Interview Question – Please name a time you made the wrong decision and what you did to address your mistake?   Answer Question
