Technology Leadership Development Program Interview

Technology Leadership Development Program
Hartford, CT

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Hartford in December 2013.

Interview Details – 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. As I was an out of town candidate, I proceeded with a short phone interview of about 30 minutes with one of the program managers. I moved forward to the next round and had an hour long phone interview with another manager and the program director in December. I was contacted two weeks later and offered the job.

Interview Question – What technology blogs do you follow, or how do you stay current in the technology field?
What is the most interesting piece of new technology you have read about?
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation. They give a set salary of $20/hr and then decrease it to $17/hr if you require housing for the summer.

Assistant Vice President Interview

Assistant Vice President
Hartford, CT

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Hartford in December 2010.

Interview Details – Interview for officer level includes a 2 day "hokus pokus" interview / shrink exam with a PHD. Absolutely ridiculous. Amazing that they spend so much money - as it obviously doesn't work.

Interview Question – don't recall any   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Relatively easy - except that they reneged on purchasing my home after I have relocated. The real estate market was collapsing - and they refused to honor a purchase price that was extended by a 3rd party relocation company that they had contracted to work with me during my move.

AARP Customer Service Representative- Auto and Home Insurance Interview

AARP Customer Service Representative- Auto and Home Insurance
Windsor, CT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – What would you do if there were no opportunities for advancement after five or six years?   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at The Hartford in May 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and within roughly 90 days I received a phone call from a Recruiting Manager looking to fill a slot for an Agency Customer Service Representative position immediately.

I started two weeks following the offer.

Technology Leadership Development Program Interview

Technology Leadership Development Program
Hartford, CT

I applied through college or university and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed 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.

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Windsor, CT

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Hartford in June 2013.

Interview Details – Virtual contact center assessment lasting about 30 minutes, was pretty simple, easily navigated and gave a good overview of what a day answering the phones would be like. Brief phone interview with recruiter lasted about 15 minutes. Hour long in-person interview focusing on behavioral questions and your ability to tolerate an extremely micromanaged environment, was with one in-person manager, and one remote.

Interview Question – Why are you seeking a job where you will basically be chained to a desk?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. The contact center is projected to close within the next 10 years as The Hartford is no longer selling annuities.
