    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hanover Insurance (Worcester, MA).

    Interview

    I was first contacted by an HR rep who conducted a general exploratory interview to see where I would fit best at the company. I was contacted about a week later with an invitation for an on-site interview session. The process took about 2 1/2 hours. I met with 4 different people and spoke with 1 more over the phone. Everyone was very kind and informative. I went through my resume during all 5 interviews explaining my past experiences and how they have prepared me well for the desired position. Also, lots of typical behavioral questions. Overall it was a positive experience.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hanover Insurance in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied and received an email the same day. Phone interview a few days later. Found that it was not a good fit. Friendly HR and somewhat willing to work with you. I would probably apply again. They are not the best with there questions and seemed that they were reading from a script. Not very personal compared to other recruiters that I have interviewed with.
