Program Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at The Hartford.

Interview Details – This was an internal hire. I applied for the position on our internal platform and immediately after posting I received a generic HR message stating that my candidacy was being considered by the hiring staff. Approximately 1 week after I completed my submission I received an email invitation to speak with an HR specialist. The HR specialist was nice and prompt in his message to me. He properly coordinated a phone interview with me for the following week. The phone interview lasted approximately 30 minutes, for which the HR specialist was on time and professional. The questions were pretty easy, straight forward, behavioral interview questions. I was asked 5-6 questions before being advised of next steps and being asked if I had any questions. I ended up interviewing with the hiring manager and another individual from that department. That particular interview lasted approximately 2 hours. There wasn't really anything unexpected from a question perspective. Interview was more of a conversation which was great. The hiring manager and this other individual made me feel at ease. It was probably one of the better interviewing experiences for me. After that interview I did have a second interview with a senior leader of the company. This interview lasted approximately 1 hour and was more difficult than the previous interviews. Overall it was a good experience.

Small Commercial Underwriter Trainee Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
San Antonio, TX

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at The Hartford in August 2013.

Interview Details – I was interviewed by them in late 2013. This would've been a steep paycut and a stepdown for me, but I was ready to do it because I was excited about entering the P&C market and leaving the healthcare market behind. I expressed this to the 5 different interviewers over the 2 hours I was with them at their office in West San Antonio, but it seemed that my answer was unsatisfactory, because they asked "why are you leaving your position" about 5 different ways, 5 different times. It almost felt like they had made up their minds about me before even walking in, and just needed some filler candidates to reject. (A strategy I've seen firsthand employed at other companies)

Interview Question – Nothing but the standard questions. Google "common interview questions" and you'll be fine.   Answer Question

Customer Care Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Hartford.

Interview Details – Very good interview process. After applying online and taking the skills test, I was contacted about 5 days later via phone by recruiter and had initial interview. Had second interview in person with potential manager and another remote manager. Questions where typical to the position I was applying for. Notified 1 week later that I got the position. I tried to negotiate salary but they were firm. Upon acceptance, they do a through criminal and employment verification check.

Interview Question – Questions were pretty typical. Pertaining to customer service, they want to here real life experiences rather than vague responses.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I tried to negotiate for a 10% increase. The HR recruiter asked my supervisor but they wouldn't budge. They said company does annual reviews and have bonuses. Good thing is that I can apply for other positions after 12 months of service in current one.
