    Underwriting Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kennesaw, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Markel Insurance (Kennesaw, GA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called a the next day to set up an in person interview. Got to the interview and waited 30 minutes for the interviewer to come to handle the interview. Gave the excuse that she could not get off the phone. There was a sheet of questions that the interviewer had but the interview was very informal and she didn't ask me any of the questions on the sheet until the end. The job was described to me and I got the feeling that it was a high pressure/stress job for little pay and that I may not want to take the job. The only thing that made me upset was that I was not contacted to say that I had not gotten them job. No follow up email/ call nothing. I understand that companies don't always respond that way to applicants but they usually do if you interview. I got nothing and I think that was really tacky.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Markel Insurance (Kennesaw, GA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    You will first go through a basic testing process that is timed and includes basic questions that you should have learned in high school. Keep in mind this position is for new college students only. After the exam they will only choose the top applicants to receive positions. This completes the whole interview process.

    Underwriter Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Markel Insurance in March 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process seems to take a while. From interview to actually getting on the job I have seen it take a month. With the company buy out, the interview process seems to take much longer for new people coming in. Between local HR and corporate HR, the back and forth just seems to be much more than one would expect.

    Interview Questions

    • I honestly did not have a complicated interview nor difficult question.   Answer Question

    Finance/Accounting Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Red Bank, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Markel Insurance (Red Bank, NJ) in June 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process was excellent - the HR office was exacting and friendly. All expectations were clearly outlined and the process had a smooth flow throughout. E-mails and staff were timely and succinct. Arrive early for the interview process as paperwork is handled at the front desk initially - which took a lot longer than expected (about 15 minutes should suffice, however).
