    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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 online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Hanover Insurance (Dunwoody, GA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hanover Insurance (Worcester, MA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    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.
