    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Portland, OR) in April 2015.

    Interview

    4 weeks from application to offer letter. After applying on a Tuesday, I got an email from a recruiter in less than 48 hours on Thursday morning. The recruiter scheduled a phone interview for the following Thursday. (Week 2) The phone interview consisted of mostly background information. I was asked about my current and past jobs as well as experience. Immediately after completing the phone interview, the recruiter scheduled an in-person interview with the hiring manager for the following Wednesday.

    (Week 3)The first in-person interview consisted of a 45-50 minute sit down with the hiring manager. They asked the usual "tell me about a time when" questions, as well as asked about previous job experience & my background. It was very relaxed and casual, not intimidating at all. After the interview, I was told I should hear back by early the following week.

    (Week 4) The following Tuesday morning, I received an email from another recruiter to arrange another in-person interview and job shadowing. I was told that I would do a teleconference interview with the hiring manager's boss who works out of Denver. The interview was scheduled for the following Wednesday. However, later that day the recruiter emailed back stating that the hiring manager would like me to come in sooner if possible, so we agreed on Thursday afternoon for a 1 hour time slot.

    The first 20-30 minutes was spent sitting with current claims specialists. I was able to watch them do the job and ask questions about the position, the company, etc. Everyone I spoke to seemed to really enjoy the job and working for Liberty Mutual. After shadowing, I was put in a conference room set up with a laptop and webcam and had a 20-25 minute teleconference interview with the regional claims manager in Denver. This interview consisted mostly of background questions and questions about my current job. No "tell me about a time" questions this time, thank goodness. I was asked what my current salary was and what my salary expectations were.

    The following Monday afternoon, 4 weeks after I applied online, I received a phone call offering me the position... and the offer letter came the following day, contingent on a background check of course.

    I think the only semi-negative part of the whole process was that they were in a rush to have everyone start, so I was unable to give a full 2 weeks notice to my current employer... but that wasn't a big deal.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted about 2 weeks later to set up a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 45 minutes and was mainly behavioral questions, and questions about my background and why I wanted to work for Liberty Mutual.

    We scheduled an in-person interview for a few weeks later, during which I met with three different supervisors (three 1:1 interviews) and got the chance to talk to a current employee. The managers gave me more information about the office culture and job requirements. They also asked more behavioral questions.

    The people I met with all seemed happy to be working there. The Claims environment definitely seemed stressful, but also interesting and rewarding.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time you had to make an important decision without having all of the information you needed.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation available, since it's my first job out of college. However, the salary and benefits were very generous.

I called the recruiter to ask why would that status change with out my actual knowledge ... Instead of a call back ...they responded with am email they are not considering me for the position which was strange in the way the series of events played out.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Danvers, MA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Started with phone interview and then within a few days was contacted by the hiring manager for a face to face interview. Met with hiring manager and another manager. They asked me mainly situational questions which I thought I answered honestly and did pretty well. Then I met with two group team leaders who asked me similar questions. I again thought I answered them pretty well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Richardson, TX).

    Interview

    I initially received and email asking to reply back to schedule a phone interview. the email was from an unmanned email address. Luckily i was able to guess the senders email address using the name signed at the bottom and Google. I got an email from another person the next day confirming the date. On the day i got a call and proceeded with a phone interview. Pretty standard. STAR questions and prior work review. then a onsite interview was scheduled. I arrived 30 minutes early. Basically similar behavioral questions as on the phone, prior work review. Then i was interviewed by a second manager. Same material basically. I was told they still had people to interview and i should know in a couple of days. Interview lasted about 2 hours and I thought it went well. Soon after I received a rejection via email.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance.

    Interview

    There were three rounds of interviews. There was one phone interview with HR. And then two in-person interviews with mgmt at the office. There was a lot of competition so you need to come prepaired. But overall it was pretty standard. It definitely felt a little stiff. Bu it was surprisingly quick to get through the whole process and get hired.

    Interview Questions

    • How are you different from the other people we could hire?

      IDK there are no curve balls really. just standard "describe a time"-type questions.
