    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Hanover Insurance.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted after several months with a phone interview, very basic with all behavioral questions. Second round was over skype with the head of recruiting, lasted 45 minutes and was more in depth on the position/details/projects. Third round was 4 back to back 30 minute interviews, again mostly behavioral and resume centered.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Hanover Insurance in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first did a phone interview and then was invited into the office to interview with 3 different interviews. It was a 2 hour process and each interviewer asked the same questions. I was offered a position but declined because they wanted me a a temporary employee through Randstand staffing instead of directly hiring me. I needed a job with benefits not to work as a temp for up to 6 months.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hanover Insurance in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was rejected within about 48 hours, but a week later I was contacted by phone by a recruiter asking questions about my interest in the position and availability for an in person interview. I was then scheduled for an interview with six people within the organization for 45 minute individual meetings in the recruiting suit. Everyone was friendly, professional and genuinely interested in my experience and career goals. I left feeling very positive about my interview experience. However, after my interview I did not receive any communication from recruiting. I directly asked for a status update on my application twice but never received a response.

    Interview Details

    In the beginning, had a short phone interview with a recruiter. After that, they decided to interview me at the office. Two interviewers interviewed me.

    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.
