    Operations & Technology LDP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at The Hartford.

    Interview Details

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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Windsor, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Hartford in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I first found the application for the internship on my school's career website. I completed the application in November, and was contacted shortly after by the company to set up interviews.

    Technology Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at The Hartford in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Left my resume with one of the program members at an engineering career fair. A week or so later I was called about scheduling an on-campus interview for the very next day. The first interview consisted of mainly standard interview questions as well as a few specific questions about my technical background. I got into the final round interviews on the Hartford campus. This interview consisted of a business analysis case study, which I wasn't very well prepared for as a CS major, as well as a one-on-one interview and a team-oriented problem solving activity. The program description seems geared towards technically-oriented people but I didn't meet anyone during the whole process who seemed to be doing any software work or who even seemed interested in anything but business. I asked for feedback on my interview but got no reply.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Hartford in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    HR gave me a call about 2 weeks after I submitted an app online. She scheduled an onsite interview at the end of the phone screening. Onsite interview was in one room with the other five applicants. We were also given a quick tour of the building and did a group case study about cutting funding at in a school district. Lunch with some actuary students and then a presentation regarding pay raise per exam and other ADP program stuff. Pretty surprised that I didn't get an offer, two of the other interviewees were late.

    They ask you to talk to one manager while your future boss writes a report on you next to the manager you are talking to, very creepy. Then in 2-4 weeks you get a call from somebody in HR you never heard of or hear from again. They set you up for a test to put on head phones and have a computer to speak names to you that you enter in a computer. Then another 2 - 4 weeks they call you and offer you the position - no negotiation. No salary changes - no vacation improvements nothing. Take it or leave it.
