    Procurement Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at QBE North America in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied and we set up an interview with a few key teammates. The people i met with were smart and polished professionals and i came away impressed by their backgrounds. After that i had an interview with the hiring manager. It was a tough, unique interview with a lot of behavioral and motivational unorthodox questions. It was clear that finding the right candidate was important to him. Those interviews took a total of about 3-4 weeks. After the final interview i was told several times that i was in the final two however it took over a month for them to decide and i accepted another offer after telling them that i couldn't wait any longer. If it takes that long to decide on two candidates i was afraid how long it would take me to ink a deal.

    Two phone interviews - really easy questions, very laid back process. Typical few behavioral and the general "tell me about yourself." Was very surprised that they didn't need more than two 30 min phone interviews to hire me.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at QBE North America in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had one phone interview with the corporate office and one face-to-face interview with local manager or VP. Great company culture, the best company atmosphere I have worked in. The people you work with are awesome and experienced in the field. You're coworkers are quality people. Management takes a long time to hire in order to get quality people. And the best part is you get yearly bonuses. I would recommend this company to everyone.
