I interviewed with the director in that specific operations.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at The Hartford (Windsor, CT) in January 2015.

    Interview

    it was extremely professional, friendly, and straight-forward. There were no tricks, which is always a red flag for me right off the bat. Both interviewers were sincerely interested in finding out why I would be a good fit for the position, rather than playing detective to figure out why they shouldn't. It was probably the best interview process i've ever had. My only suggestion would be to avoid discussing turnover rates.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at The Hartford (Hartford, CT).

    Interview

    Apply Online --> Phone Interview --> On-Campus Interview --> Home Office Interview

    Applied online through my Uni's career services website and through The Hartford's internal career site

    Phone interview was a pleasant surprise; had an intern call me from HR asking if I was still interested ~ a week after applying online. A couple of days later, an HR recruiting rep called me to talk about my resume, etc.

    On-Campus interview was a typical 1-on-1 sit down and talk style interview. Really enjoyed this one, the recruiting manager for my school was a wonderful guy.

    Home Office Interview consists of a tour, a group thing, a 1-on-1, and a case study.

    Interview Questions

    • The case study was brutal. I may be a bit biased because I am an accounting major, but the case study seemed to be entirely focused on understanding database information systems. The Hartford considers almost all majors for the LDP, granted you have a somewhat relatable field of interest. They should keep in mind that not all interviewees have educational backgrounds in management information systems. If you don't understand the intricacies of data flow through specific MIS charts, you are most likely going to stumble through the case study.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Entry-level, so no negotiatiion. Starting salary is generous relative to the state of the economy and whatnot. Graciously accepted.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Hartford (Windsor, CT) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and had an employee referral. Received an email a few days later to set up a phone interview which was scheduled for two days after that. The phone interview was a review of the job and my qualifications, pretty easy. At the end of that conversation I was scheduled for an in person interview the following week. Went to the office the following Monday and met with a manager. The interview was a lot of behavioral questions... make sure you have some examples from previous work experience/schooling. The in person interview took an hour. Dress professionally and be ready to give examples and you should be fine. Everybody I spoke with was very nice and helped me understand the requirements of the position. I received a job offer the following day.
