    Customer Care Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Hartford.

    Interview Details

    Had a face-to-face with 2 managers. They seemed un-coordinated in their questions, like they were talking over each other. However, they were pleasant to me most of the time. For a call center position, I felt that they prodded a little too deeply into my resume... but hey, that's the post-2009 job market we live in, huh?

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time you've dealt with a difficult customer?

      Have you ever went above and beyond to fulfill a customer's request?

    Insurance Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Hartford.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was fast. Almost too fast because it seemed almost like a some sort of scam. The talent recruiter called and emailed multiple times until I completed a 90 minute online assessment. Again, not even 24 hours later I was called and asked to come in for an interview. The interview was good, mainly because the interviewers were extremely laid back and asked the questions in a conversational tone. As long as you've had sales and retail experience, you will do completely fine during the interview. I didn't even get back home and I had a missed call from them offering me the position.

    Interview Questions
    • They ask some "example" questions related to sales and retail. As long as you've actually done one or the other, the questions aren't hard.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They tell you your salary and things like time off in the interview, so there really is no negotiation. This is an entry level position and The Hartford seems to treat their employees well.
