    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.

    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

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an internal recruiter about the job opening.

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

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - 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.
