    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Philadelphia Insurance Companies (Dublin, OH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I first spoke on the phone with an HR rep straight out of Philadephia's home office. She asked very basic questions about my work background and what salary I wanted. I then was scheduled for an interview on location at the prospective office where I spoke with two managers for the hiring departments in the office's conference room. It was very laid back, and pretty generic interview questions- previous experience, what I liked and didn't like about the previous job, what I anticipate being the biggest challenge if I were to move forward with Phly.

    Negotiation

    It was easy to ask for a higher salary than that offered - they didn't accept my request, but they met me in the middle.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Philadelphia Insurance Companies (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview was brief and pretty average. The woman who interviewed was very nice and made you feel at ease, not intimidating at all. The questions were straight forward, nothing too in depth. The whole duration of the phone interview was around fifteen minutes and she called at the exact time we had scheduled the week before.

    Senior Claims Examiner Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Philadelphia Insurance Companies (Highlands Ranch, CO) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I first interviewed with the HR person via phone. That was pleasant and fairly easy. I then was scheduled for an in-person interview with the Regional Claims Manager who flew in from California. She told me she had 8 people to interview. The interview seemed to go okay. Questions asked were about how I felt about working overtime and there was much talk about "efficiency". I got the feeling this may be a high volume claims position. There seemed to be no opportunity to ever work remotely. I was very disappointed that I did not get the courtesy of a call or email advising that I did not get the job. I was left hanging.
