    Operations & Technology LDP Interview

    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

    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.

    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.

    Underwriting Operations Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hoboken, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hoboken, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Hartford in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I met with the hiring manager for the position and had a very standard conversational interview for slightly longer than 1 hour. I was supposed to meet with 2 interviewers, but due to a lack of proper planning the second interviewer never showed.

    I was asked back for a 2nd and final round of interviews. I interviewed with the previous interviewer who was unavailable during my first visit to The Hartford's Hoboken office and the office's department head.

    The department head had a sheet which listed many difficult and in-depth behavioral questions that I had to answer.

    Overall, a slightly-above-average difficulty interview process for what seemed to be a low-responsibility position. Regardless, the interviewers were very professional and friendly throughout the process.

    Interview Questions
    • Name a time that you had to deal with a morally / ethically difficult situation. What did you do and how did you learn from it?

      The interviewer also asked a lot of other very standard behavioral interview questions off of a list.
        Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I received a competitive offer from another company for a very similar position that had more responsibility and a better commute.
