    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at The Hartford.

    Interview Details

    3 interviewers
    The process was easy. First they explain what the job is. Second they start going around and asking questions. You have 30 min for the interview. Then, all you do is relax and go with the flow. The good thing was my interview was inside school compus, they started talking about the school and any upcoming tests.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at The Hartford.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed on campus through recruiting. There were three team leaders who tag teamed the interview questions. All three were very nice, and very attentive to my answers. I felt very much at ease and felt like I nailed the interview. I went in to the interview as more of an informational interview, but left really wanting the job. Easy questions. Laid back environment.

    Associate Claims Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Hartford.

    Interview Details

    Two sets of interviews on the same day. Pretty standard stuff about your resume and qualifications. Kind of weird in that the interviewers were potential co-workers if I receive a job offer and not typical Human Resources associates. Overall a positive experience with nothing too tough. The interviewers were very nice, yet pretty difficult to impress. They were all highly educated and gave as much information as they requested. The only downside is that they expected you to know much more about the job than you could. It was an entry level position but they made me feel that they wanted an experienced claim handler. This is why I feel they should of had an HR representative in the room as well.

    Associate Claim Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Hartford in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed at the Aurora, Il location. First off the interviewers were a couple minutes late. The interview was held by two team leads who were not managers(red flag). During the entire interview the two leads kept looking at each other as if they didn't know what they were doing. The interview consisted of three situation questions then it was over. There was no explanation of company, position ect. Needless to say I didn't want the position once I found out they weren't managers.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at The Hartford.

    Interview Details

    I applied online as well as through my university. Did an hour and a half online assessment and then a few weeks later received an email requesting to set up an on-campus interview. The first interview was very laid back and more of a conversation than an interview. The interviewer was very polite and easy to talk to. Two weeks later I received another email asking to set up a second-round interview on campus. This time I was interviewed by two people, and it was extremely similar to the first being very laid back and more of a conversation. I received an offer at the end of the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at The Hartford.

    Interview Details

    I'd say, for the most part, the hiring and interview process for this position was pretty straightforward. I felt that it was pretty easy, provided you do your proper research and preparation. For the job that I went for I didn't experience too many rounds of interviewing, although it's not uncommon for other positions to require 5+. I lucked out.
